God

 
(For the Many, who Wonder at it all )

 
Let’s assume there’s a ‘god’?

Why not?
 
The so called “science” of economics makes all manner of
(outlandish) assumptions to prove its axiomatic truisms.

So we can, surely, do no worse?

So, let’s assume there’s a god.

What possible purpose might IT have had to have humans evolve from the primeval slime?
 
I can think of at least 3.

Of course , that may not exhaust all possibilities.

It got Lonely, and needed a (semi)intelligent species to relate to (albeit invisibly).
 
Or, the Vanity motive.
It wished to have a species that could marvel at Its many glories.
Needed, in effect, sentient admirers.
 
Or, It was so plain Disgusted with the Schema of Evolution that it needed a species that could put an end to All of it, once and for all.

So it can start over.

Whence it allowed US to emerge, leaving it to our (expected) consummate turpitude to destroy all life on the planet ever so swiftly.

I don’t know about you, but I rather favor the last?
 
*
 
Have a look around.

There is a certain rough post-factum veracity to it, isn’t there?
 
*
 
It may be time we asked such questions before it’s all gone in
a giant plume of smoke?

I wonder.
