“God knows what he's doin'. He wrote this book here. And the book says: 'He made us all to be just like Him', So… If we're dumb… Then God is dumb… (And maybe even a little ugly on the side)”

Frank Zappa1940 – 1993

    Gotta love Zappa…

  2. Oxymoronic Christhinker Says:

    Yes, you do . . . says so right here in this book here: “Love one another.” 🙂

    Frank missed an important point. We ARE all made in God’s image. The problem, and sadly a significant one, is that at the time God created us from clay (or a clot of blood if you prefer), He was not possessed of a very good mirror. If He had created Target (a large U.S. mass merchandiser) first, we might have been spared a whole lot of trouble. And maybe I’d not be bald.

    I decided to see what else Zappa said and I have to say, this is a gem:

    “The most important thing to do in your life is to not interfere with somebody else’s life.”

    and this:

    “The essence of Christianity is told to us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the Tree of Knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your fucking mouth shut and hadn’t asked any questions.”

    Behind the shock value of his lyrics and his life, there was a thinking person that had pretty good insight into a variety of topics.

    Lastly, because it cracked me up…

    “Scientology, how about that? You hold on to the tin cans and then this guy asks you a bunch of questions, and if you pay enough money you get to join the master race. How’s that for a religion?”

    The Qoran is right.It does not mention God to look anything like human.In fact he’s comparable to nothing.

  6. solomon Says:

    Zappa’s music is good, but being carried away by the fame he received he became boastful & forgot that all the talents he receive is from god.

  7. Holysmokes Says:

    The quote seems accurate …as does the quote Captain put up about the tree of knowledge.

  8. Oxymoronic Christhinker Says:

    All you lovers out there . . . Happy Valentine’s Day!

  9. MagicAintReal Says:

    Solomon, you said, in reference to Zappa, “all the talents he receive is from god.”
    I have two questions:
    How do you know that Zappa received these talents from god?
    In general, are people’s flaws, inaccuracies and evils also received from god?

  10. The Heretic Says:

    Everyone knows that Zappa received his talents from the benefiscent FSM. Pesto be upon us.

  11. solomon Says:

    Dear MagicAintReal,

    If not from God then from where else can any happenings source from?
    First you must understand that God not in any way deceived or illtreat his creations.They have been taught the wrong & the right way.They have been told not to follow the evil deeds which are the footsteps of Satan.God knows humans are weak, have flaws or inaccuracies.These handicapped are tolerated by god if ones admit their weakness and seek forgiveness.But one should not misuse these privelege excessively to their advantage.As I’ve mention any happenings is from god does not mean we can do nothing about it.God have given us the thoughts to choose between right or wrong, good from bad & so forth.

    Evolution will soon find its way out, a thing of the past, like at one time when men believe the earth is flat. Even today it cannot answer some of the layman’s question.

  13. Greg Says:

    Evolution IS a thing of the past.

    And a fact that will shape our future.
