“In the beginning, God. God spoke. But that was a long time ago.
We wanted certainty—now.
For this, only Reason and Rationalism AA would do.
But that was not enough. We wanted to “test.”
So we went into the senses and found the empirical.
But that’s not what we meant by testing. We really meant the “feeling.”
So we found a way to generate feeling into the picture.
Truth was framed into a scene.
But the scene was left open to interpretation. Scenes are not absolute.
So the story was told as an art form.
But the reader still didn’t like it, because he was not the author.
So he read the story to make of the story whatever he wished.
But what does one do with the long reach of the empirical?
The best way was to find a blend between the empirical and the satirical and end up with God again.
The only difference was that God could not be the storyteller.
We still needed God.
So we became God.” A
There are no absolutes or boundaries in the “Sociological” worldview. Most people we meet have not thought this deeply or consciously believe like this. However they live like this because of the influence of the majority of the media, news, entertainment, and academic providers of information and education.
What is your Worldview? Is it Sociological or Biblical B? It determines the choices you make on a daily basis.
