Cipher: (n). a secret or disguised way of writing; a code.
Over the years I have come to the conclusion that everything is a cipher.
Although some people put their confidence in Holy Books, those volumes themselves borrow so much from each other that one has to realize that the mortals who gathered the information and bound them were fully aware of the cipher that lay within.
If the words found in the Book of Genesis are as important as the words found in the Book of Revelation, then someone didn’t develop the story very well.
A certain amount of religious rhetoric, political punditry and “business blowhard” cries for the purity of the original idea.
But let’s be honest–Kentucky Fried Chicken no longer insists that it’s “finger-lickin’ good,” because most people don’t lick their fingers anymore.
More enlightened believers don’t demand that homosexuals be stoned because deeper ciphers within the Book warn us of the greater dangers of judging and throwing rocks.
And truthfully, believing that a bunch of people should get together sometime in December every four years to pick a President, who has already been voted on by the masses, must very soon be ridiculed back into the history books.
Life is a cipher.
Normally what may appear to be obvious at first needs to have additional information and time to reveal the richer hidden meaning.
Botch (v) to carry out a task badly or carelessly.
Politicians could certainly learn a lot by reading the first six chapters of the Book of Genesis.
Because even though the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth certainly had enough status and power to insist that He was error free, within those six chapters, Almighty God admits He botched three things.
First of all, He created the Heavens and the Earth, but upon a closer look, realized that the planet was a real mess–misshapen and incapable of sustaining life. If His goal was to make creeping things, then the situation was already botched.
And later on, when He discovered how disgusting human beings could be, He regretted that He ever made them, and concluded He had botched the whole experiment by including Homo Sapiens.
Shortly after that, the God of the Universe has to repent because He killed all the people off in a fit of anger and realized the decision was overwrought.
If God–who got the title because He was supposed to be mistake free–botches things, then who are we to think we can solve all of our problems with lies and duck tape?
