Polytheistic Atheism

If everything, every event, has its own god, then the big god does not exist. I suppose you might postulate a god of all gods, but then what about the god of the god of all gods?

The sun god, the god of rain, the god of planetary engineering, the god of planetary development, the god of the first law of thermodynamics, the god of protons, the god of quarks, the god of forks, the god of computer chips, the god of bicycling, the god of blowing your nose — ad infinitum.

Try it, at table, in conversations, in everything you do. The god of blogging inspires me to write this, and the god of Dell XPSs helped along the way.

The god of planetary engineering and the god of planetary development presented us with a garden of eden.

The god of rain soaked the soil.

The god of sun warmed the soil and showered the plants with photons.

The god of energy capture decreased the entropy of the plants while more than compensatorily increasing the entropy of the universe.

That clever devil.

The god of information processing oversaw the parts production.

The god of self-organization let it happen.

The flowers bloomed, and the god of reproduction let them spread.

The god of flower pickers smiled.

The god of mother's day smiled, too.
