A Letter From God to Man

    A track by Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip. A letter from god to man. Just thought people might wanna have a look, the track is here:

    Hey There, how, how’s it going?
    Long time no see.
    I know I haven’t been around much lately
    But…it didn’t seem like you wanted me to be
    The last time I sent down a message you nailed it to the cross
    So I figured I’d just leave you to it, let you be your own boss

    But I’ve been keeping an eye on you, I have,
    and it’s amazing how you’ve grown.
    With your technological advances and the problems you’ve overthrown,
    And all the beautiful art you’ve created with such grace and such finesse,
    But I admit there are a few things I’m afraid have impressed me less.

    So I’m writing to apologize for all the horrors committed in my name,
    Although that was never what I intended,
    I feel I should take my share of the blame.
    All the good I tried to do was corrupted
    when organised religion got into full swing,
    What I thought were quite clear messages were taken to unusual extremes.
    My teachings taken out of context to meet the agendas of others,
    Interpretations taken to many different ways and hidden meanings discovered

    Religion became a tool, for the weak to control the strong
    With all these new morals and ethics, survival of the fittest was gone
    No longer could the biggest man simply take whatever he needed
    ‘cause damnation was the price if certain rules were not heeded
    Some of the deeds committed in my name
    just made me wonder were I went wrong.
    Back at the start when I created this, the foundation seemed so strong.
    See all the elements were already here, long before I began,
    I just kind of put it all together
    I didn’t really think out a long-term plan.

    I made the sun an appropriate distance and laid the stars across the sky
    So you could navigate the globe or simply watch the sun rise
    I covered the earth with plants and fruits,
    Some for sustenance and some for beauty
    I made the sun shine and the clouds rain
    so their maintenance wasn’t your duty
    I tried to give each creature its own attributes
    without making them enveloped
    I gave you all you all your own space to
    grow and in your own way space to develop

    I didn’t know such development would cause rifts and jealousy
    Cause you to war against each other and leave marks on this planet indelibly
    You see, I wasn’t really the creater, I was just the curator of nature,
    I want to get something straight with homosexuals right now: I don’t hate ya.
    I was a simple being that happened to be the first to wield such powers
    I just laid the ground, it was You that built the towers

    It was You that invented bombs, and the fear that comes with them.
    And it was You that invented money, and the corrupt economic systems.
    You invented terms like 'just-war' and terms like 'friendly fire'
    And it was You that didn’t know
    when to stop digging deeper, when to stop building higher
    It was You that exhausted the resources I carefully laid out on this earth,
    And it was You that even saw these
    problems coming but accredited them little worth
    It was You that used my teachings for your own personal gain
    And it was You that committed such tragedies,
    even though they were in my name

    So I apologize for any mistakes I made, and when my words misconstrued
    But this apology’s to mother nature, cause I created you.

      An ill-informed god fumbling through this whole business of being god and working it out as he goes along certainly seems more plausible than the god the theists like to suggest... if only in the sense that the flying spaghetti monster is more plausible than the god of the bible.

      He comes off like a whiner, though.

    And as 'God' says: 'I created you'

    I think he should have thought a bit more before going on with this 'Creation'
    Or maybe thought was created afterwards.
