A POEM BY GARY G PELOW, THE RIGHTER

There is a right way to do things and a wrong way to do things,
but who decides right from wrong? That seems to me to be a dilemna,
after all even God can not seem to make up his mind about right and wrong,
he does not seem able to decide what his name is. I think of all his different names,
Allah, JESUS, GOD, YAWEH, JEHOVA, ELOIM, BUDDHA, KRISHNA, and so on.
Quite a confusing set of circumstances, these names and all, how could this God
decide morality, or that which is right or wrong, especially for me, and you!
I prefer to think of humans as being inherently moral and good, with out this
GOD person. I do not need an imaginary play mate that lives in the sky playing
solitaire to tell me that which is right or wrong, moral or immoral, GOOD IS THAT
WHICH REDUCES SUFFERING, both for humanity, the individual self, you see it is in our genes that contain both good and evil, there is that which reduces pain, suffering, the altrustic nature of all species to protect there own, both the group and the individual, morality in this sense is needed for physical survival of a species,
we do not need the imaginry Captain Crunch in the sky.
