The view from a different Heaven

Long, long ago, in a time when the ancient Gods and Goddesses ruled this planet, a group of Beings [don’t you dare called them ‘angels’ !] were gathered together for their daily party.

Yes, in this Heaven it was party, party, party all the time... the wine was divine, the music celestial, and the people just loved being here... Well, what’s not to like...?! it was Heaven at its best !

And in this particular day the main attraction was watching those weird little creatures they had created to populate the planet...and see what foolish things they’d get up to now...

Bizarre little creepy things they were, always running around doing crazy things - loving one day, fighting another, it was a wild roller-coaster ride, even though their lives were so short...but man, were they funny !

Look at them now, rallying together under some silly pretense to go out and bash each other, vilifying even the most basic courtesies, as they postured and pointed their dirty fingers at those whom they’d decreed ‘were not as good as them !’

Yes, they still thought that they were better than others, without realizing that, from the point of view of Heaven, one dirty savage is no different from another...and still they fought for supremacy, still believed that ‘Might makes Right’... and for what ? to gather some measly material possessions, a title or two, some gold or such like... and then they die ! What a waste of life...

Well, it was quite amusing to these non-angels... and so they thought of making things even more interesting - they took bets on what it would take to bring about ‘evolution’ to these weird little creatures...

Soon two different camps were formed - the first would send down a great leader - a Being of superior intellect, one with many gifts and powers, who - supposedly - would be able to unite these warring tribes, and bring them peace... while the other group would simply create more drama, more attrition, more chaos... and we’ll see who will win ... [the wager was a cask of golden nectar, much valued in these lofty realms...]

And so it began - this wonderful leader was born on this little dirt ball, and even though he was a great speaker - very passionate fellow, and with good diction too - still, he just didn’t catch on...

Ok, so a few people followed him as he went around telling people about stuff like love and kindness and unity... but you see, no one really cared...

Yes, some did build temples in his image, and others even wrote down his most famous words... but greed being what it is, soon many elected themselves as being ‘His Acolytes’, his duly appointed ‘chosen ones’ , who will now speak with his voice, and tell all others what to do, how to do it, and how much to pay... [after all, you didn’t think the temple ran itself, now did you...!]...

Oh, yes, and they all still fought one another, killing each other in the name of His Holiness...

So, that sucked... and now it’s the others’ turn...

Well, they had it easy - they sent earthquake after earthquake, tornadoes and volcanoes ripping the land apart, torrential rains devastating the land... thousand, nay, millions of creatures died... famine was everywhere... and what do you think happened ...?

Crazy people created temples and worshiped these new ‘Angry Gods’, and even offered virgin sacrifices to appeased them [yuk ! what a weird thing to do... but hey, what’d you expect, they’s primitives, right !] ...and when that didn’t work...then they just blamed each other, and went to war...and killed, and killed, and killed...

And so it was declared a draw - neither side won, because, after all, what can you expect from such retarded little creatures... and so these mighty non-angels in their wisdom smited these lowly creatures ...[smote ? smit ? oh heck, killed off the buggers...] for they were no fun after all ... Bummer - after all that work...

But hey, don’t worry, the party still goes on...the wine still flows abundantly, everyone still rejoices that they were born superior... and if you wait a while, someone else will create another race of weird little Beings... and the fun will start all over again...

But hey, don’t hold your breath, you know what’ll happen - they just go and kill each other again...! What did you expect them to do - be ‘enlightened’...that’s a laugh, they’s primitives, man ! Here, have another drink...
