what_if
silentbob what if god actually was a person at one time in some celestial existance and then he lived a bad life and died. his hell and torment is the responsibility of all us assholes. his hell is listening to all our problems and not being able to help all of us. sometimes things happen and people are pleased with what god is doing, but for the most part people deny his very existance. he is forced to hear our problems and unable to do anything. imagine he's been damned to watch as we kill and hurt each other, in an unending cycle of greed and sin.

yeah. i imagine being god would kind of suck a lot.

Sonya What if we both had the guts back then to pursue whatever it was that floated between us? I hate what if's, and now because of you I have to deal with the biggest what if of all. You know all those movies we watch where the people make it to the altar with someone and then start to wonder what could have happened if they went down another route? This'll happen to me in a few years, and maybe, just maybe it might happen to you. When it happens, be sure to remember you brought it on yourself. Chances thrown away and dreams dashed leave souls drowning in uncertainty. 011107

cube Silentbob got one thing right - God was once like us. Would you worship an entity which hadn't made it through this crap? I know i couldn't. The flip side to that is that we may become like God.

I suspect silentbob is also correct about God not wanting to see us in such turmoil - not because he is forced to watch against his will, but because we are his creations.

The mechanism of the Holy Ghost may be in place to isolate (or insulate) us from Him. It may be a safety, set in place so that He doesn't intervene on our behalf and screw up The Plan.

This last part is pure speculation on my part and is not endorsed by any tax exempt organization that i know of. Just thinking out loud...

IWishICouldGoWithDavid Upon relating to a number of things right now, I asked myself, "What if somewhere else in the world there is someone having the exact same feelings about someone else that I'm having for you right now? And what if that person's someone is feeling about them like you do about me?" And then I thought, "I just hope for their sake that they're timing is better..." 021209

dudeinanigloo What if a litte green monkey with rabies armed with a rocket launcher, a shotgun, an M-16, and grenades destroyed the white house and became president of the United States???

What if all the computers in the world combined to form one big mind and took control of the human race???

What if the little blue spiders came and bit you in your sleep, and you became a little blue spider too???

What if everyone's fate was controlled by the evil men in trenchcoats???

What if you watched "The Ring" and then got a phone call right after?

What if everyone except you was a robot?

What if whenever you ate a peanut butter sandwich, you exploded???

nonlucid say it doesn't matter what if, because it isn't, and only what is exists - but we don't know anything, and it could be the what if, that could be the is

and it's fascinating that we know so little about our existence that we must make up stories to define it, try to understand the nature of "to be", wonder how we got here while all that matters is how it is, but perhaps if we knew the beginning we could derive the present, then work from there

sometimes i feel as if someone out there should be omniscient and have all the answers (like my parents did when i was little) and never answered "because" to "why?" because there's no good answer, but there aren't answers to every question and truth isn't simple, capitalized Truth even less so

maybe (is maybe as useless as whatif?) that has something to do with god, the idea that it knows everything, even if it'll never tell you it, and maybe when we die we'll know it too

and finally understand

JdAwG What would life be without the what ifs? A game with no rules. The what if's are a way of learning. because, eventually you'll learn that you shoulnd;t even ask yourself that question, but instead find out first hand. 040628

love & hate What if my dream came true and you where with me eternally. Would that make you happy?

What if you loved me as i loved you?

What if our lives were perfect together and nothing mattered except the love we have for each other?

What if these what if's came true, then i would see the light in this darkness smothering me without you...

nighean_siofra i had danced with you
just that one last time
or went with my impulse
to give you a quick kiss
what if you hadn't been so charming
or hadn't smiled just that way
what if i'd never met you
never cried those silly tears
of hurt and confusion and loss
what if you were still here
and the future wide and bright...

a chaotic gift to idealism I've met God across his long walnut desk with his diplomas hanging on the wall behind him, and God asks me, "Why?" Why did I cause so much pain? Didn't I realize that each of us is a sacred, unique snowflake of special unique specialness? Can't I see how we're all manifestations of love? I look at God behind his desk, taking notes on a pad, but God's got this all wrong. We are not special. We are not crap or trash, either. We just are. We just are, and what happens just happens. And God says, "No, that's not right." Yeah. Well. Whatever. You can't teach God anything.

We just are. We just are, and what happens just happens.
