I indulge myself the parody of a well known Bible verse inintroducing the focal idea of this article. That not even the amorality of literature or say even poetic justice not completely free of the unwritten codes of social, or more particularly ethical, restrictions as to what is generally acceptable letters of literature, I appease and pacify conscience in the honesty of the intent of these pages of shy images it promises to sketch which, prior to these pages has not a place in our books but a footnote "of alien, unknown, unverifiable origin."
More than sacriligious disregard of popular sensibility, I can say without fear of any rebuke that I simply afforded myself the indulgence of carefree writing: allowing my pen to anchor the thoughts of every word it spells on the truths that those very letters write.
The choice is whether to conform and comply with the generally prevailing or the POPular (which even took us a specialized field of science to identify) -- our social mores. Otherwise, civility as encapsulated with what we were told as sophistication and good-taste requires our dissents and objections anything but objectionable. Let me clarify however that it is the least intent of these pages to dissent, oppose or object the popular. These articles simply tells what's been untold for so long.
And ironic as may seem, scholastic and cultural ethics has drawn our civilization parameters of truth as anything our standards consider publishable. Whether truth relative or otherwise, we've nontheless made ourselves believe that it can be selective. Truth is what we chose them to be for so long as they are in keeping with our known rules and standards. Though the rest not necessarily not the truth, they are simply labeled "not publishable" (unacceptable) -- They simply have not the pages to embrace the letters they spell.
Until the free-spirited indulgence of these pages.
No, the choice of paradoy is not simply intended to draw or catch reader's attention (though writing fundamentals from creative to technical suggest that catching reader's intenrest should be every writer's business). I should however clarify that for whatever that my chosen title may connote is anything but immaterial to the real reason how such title was coined. More than parady (or as other may find it a mere hyperbole), I prefer for anyone who may read this to understand it as literal as possible. And though I will admit that the seemingly verbatim similarity with a bible verse not completely a coincidence. I will nevertheless claim that, for the sake of argument, even the writing of these pages came before the publication of the bible. I believe this article will bear but just the same title; Let us create god... According to our image.
Admittedly that not only the title seemingly provoking for "toying" with what our brother Christians value as something sacred (the scriptures), I should forewarn anyoine who may chance to read these pages that the very thought and theme of this article will significantly challenge our known spiritual values and sensibilities. If a reader has not the stomach to question (and most likely abandon) a lifelong spiritual faith, it is best to discontinue and refrain turning more of the pages.
For why these pages have reached a reader's eyes is for but just one simple (for whatever simple means) reason, these pages shall identify THE canvass to where the portrait of THE god shall be sketched.
That the aim to create god may seem too ambitious a dream, these pages will be contented iin aiming to spark the fire in the heart of even one single sould who may read this to have the desire to imagine -- to really imagine -- the "face of god". Nonetheless, the suggestion of these pages stands as the ultimate dreamn of these article lives...
Let us create god according to our image.
