    i can understand some people wanting to worship a god. i can understand some people wanting other people to worship a god. what i can't understand, is a god who really is a god, wanting to be worshiped.

    Hehe, clever picture. This looks fitting but as most of this word playing it only is right in theory/the way it sounds when put like this. In reality all the answers offered in religions have been questioned by both the believers of those religion and outsiders for as long as humans can remember.

    I hope you enjoy your popcorn because there won't be anything else interesting here. The graphic in the original post is just idiotic. There is no real difference between philosophy and religion.

    i see philosophy has no synonym . i'll give it one : SPACE . space
    is as far as you can see . having a boundary is implied .

    religion may claim everything seen , foreseen and unsee-able .

    metaphysics is funny , cartoonish . it doodles pictures of My
    Theory of Everything .


    at its best , any of these can be Relational (as far as i can see) . how
    would each answer the question ' whassup wit dese big brains' ?
