    I still don't get it. How exactly is allowing for the possibility that some hyper dimensional space alien might exist the "enlightened" position? And how is lacking faith comforting to "wimps and sissies"? You think it's easy to stare into the abyss? With fundies they would say atheism is comforting to people who want to do things there own way and not be accountable to God for their "sins". But you, I don't know what your deal is.

    I was reading poetry last night and came across one that reminded me of this thread.

    It's by Stanley Kunitz, who is one of my absolute favorite poets.

    Various levels of interpretation have relevance to this thread, but many do not; mostly I just feel compelled to share it with someone, and none of the people around me are very receptive.


    BENEDICTION

    God banish from your house
    The fly, the roach, the mouse

    That riot in the walls
    Until the plaster falls;

    Admonish from your door,
    The hypocrite and liar;

    No shy, soft, tigrish fear
    Permit upon your stair,

    Nor agents of your doubt.
    God drive them whistling out.

    Let nothing touched with evil,
    Let nothing that can shrivel

    Heat's tenderest frond, intrude
    Upon your still, deep blood.

    Against the drip of night
    God keep all windows tight,

    Protect your mirrors from
    Surprise, delirium,

    Admit no trailing wind
    Into your shuttered mind

    To plume the lake of sleep
    With dreams. If you must weep

    God give you tears, but leave
    You secrecy to grieve,

    And islands for your pride,
    And love to nest in your side.

    God grant that, to the bone,
    Yourself may be your own;

    God grant that I may be
    (My sweet) sweet company.
    You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club. - Jack London

    Beautiful poem! I'ma jack it up, now! Ni know it!

    MALEDICTION

    Protect your mirrors from within which I realm,
    your fear will surprise at my smile
    and delirium within thine eyes will be my delight, I
    shine as you frown, reflect
    of a sweeter company will ne'er be bound, for we are
    Endless.
    You read mine lips
    and fail the diction despite it.

    Delirium's Delight! Take that Sandman Comics which I've never even read but have stolen Delirium Delight from! I am DD masking sense within nonsense or the other way around!

    Debted To: nemo! Sorry to butcher one of your fav poems/poet! It only took about 5 min or so to ruin too! hahaha! But it's dedicated from Ni to you and your hungover Ne-d up mind ...

    My first guess is she'll come back with something like "you're more open minded that way" but she seems to confuse open mindedness with undoubting acceptance of the obscure and intangible.

    As if somehow using logic makes you narrow.

    The parent thread, Athesia, was intended to be a sort of venting-space from what I can tell. But just as flowers can grow on refuse, the thread has spawned some interesting topics. In an effort to cultivate those discussions and preserve the integrity of this thread, I split.
