This week’s photo prompt is provided by Tim Livingston with the blog, The ForesterArtist. Thank you Tim.
I believe in God, Demons and Devil as the good, bad and ugly aspects of human nature. I and a few friends were discussing the psychological and neurological basis of religious belief. It is a fiercely debated subject in diverse disciplines. Many believe that contemporary psychological theories consider religious belief and behavior as a complex neural-phenomena that manifested in humans along with social cognition.
Slowly the discussion tailed off in to semantics.
Dom – Where does God live?
Friend#1 – In the wide cosmos beyond this planet.
Dom – …. Where does the devil live?
Friend#2 – On this planet!
Dom – Where on this Earth?
Friend#2 – He is fairly ubiquitous.
Dom – That may be true but he specifically haunts the steering wheels. As soon as a human lays his hands on the steering wheel – he gets the surge of power that infuses a sense of being all- powerful.
Friend#1 – Explain?
Dom – Review road traffic accident statistics, harsh traffic and licensing rules and examine the newspaper-archives for road-rage crimes – all your doubts shall soon dispel.
