A Letter To Humanity By Tamarin I am god, and it had been brought to my attention that you're all making a total mess of everything. Not just a bit of a mess, but a total kitchen, after a rather good party that just did not want to end kind of mess. How hard can it be? You have a nice planet to live on, plenty of resources, you have evolved to the point where you can perform miracles that make the miracles I did when I was into doing that kind of thing, look like party tricks and all you seem to be able to do is fuck it up, (excuse the language but it does make me rather mad). You understand a lot, but understand nothing. You can't get along, you squabble like children and your squabbles always seem to end in a lot of people being killed, starved or maimed. Have any of you had a good look around, do you see any of the other creatures who have the misfortune to share the planet with you acting like that? (When I say other creatures, I mean the ones you have not destroyed as yet). You do not, and quite frankly I am very nearly out of patience with you, and my patience is almost infinite this should go some way to explaining how mad I really am. Your all gods creatures, yes all of you, the Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sheiks, those of you without any god, every last man, woman and child, yes even the Americans (although this may be under review so take note). There are no chosen people where I am concerned, you're all equal, the only thing any religion on earth has got right is the fact there is a god, other than that you're all wrong, and have used your bigotry to hurt and enslave your fellow creatures, (perhaps this is my fault and I should of put you right a long time ago but one did not want to interfere). So I'm putting you all on probation. Start being nice to each other or else! (I am a god, the god, the only god that I know of, so please trust me when I say that you don't want to know what ELSE is, but it's pretty well god awful and will almost certainly involve the human race ceasing to exist. (Which would I'm sure will come as a great relief to everything other than yourselves). There is no need for war; there is no need for anyone to starve. I'm not saying perfect, I'm saying better. You are the same, but you're obsessed with superficial differences. The colour of your skins, in what form you worship me, in what language you speak, on what piece of land you happen to live on. Come on people get a grip, seeing it written down like that does it not strike you that none of that matters, that they are things of absolutely no consequence at all. Have a little respect for each other, that's all I'm asking, its not hard; treat each other how you yourself would like to be treated. (Do you need examples I expect you do). Ask yourself would you like to be torn limb from limb by a missile and see your family torn apart? Let me guess, the answer is no. Well then, and I know this is the difficult part, don't do it to someone else. How about starvation, would you like to see yourself and your children slowly starve, getting weaker day by day, seeing there pain and suffering? No? Well then, don't let other people starve, (there is enough of everything to go round). You're bright creatures you can work it out. Religion, well its probably better if I gloss over that as much as possible, as it seems to do strange things to you, you may well be better off getting rid of the whole concept, as it's just an awfully big stick with which to hit each other with. You all have some pretty nice stories you know, the basics are pretty much the same. Don't kill each other, love each other, don't walk on the other side and all that never really understood the don't take my name in vain bit and a lot of you seem to be really big on that in one way or another and it usually ends with a crusade or a stonning but on the whole They're not bad codes with which to live your lives, and if you had left it there the world would be in a much better state than its in, but you're human, and you in your infinite wisdom, (sorry just had a coughing fit after using the word wisdom and human in the same sentence), decided that the best way to achieve love, harmony and all that, was to go to war and Click here to read the rest of this story (31 more lines)
