NOW YA SEE IT – NOW YA DON’T
(A conversation between Curious Abner
and the Psychedelic Toad.)
Psycho: Hey there Abner, what alleys have you explored today?
Abner: Oh, hi Psy. I got my feelings hurt.
Psycho: Was it something you said…again?
Abner: Well I was in a conversation about God and I mentioned that God has no will and offered evidence thereof.
Psycho: That must have gone over well. Or perhaps I should say like you order your steak? Burned to a crisp.
Abner: I’m a vegan.
Psycho: You have spinach on your incisor. Okay, so who nailed ya?
Abner: Magic man, okay?
Psycho: Shoulda seen that coming. When in Rome…you silly man.
Abner: I know, I know. But it took me 36 years of at least 2000 words a day and hundreds of thousands of hours of research to discover these awarenesses. His remark was simply to quote the opinion of a very large group.
Psycho: So, why do you go to this meeting every week? You have no support for your love of research.
Abner: I go because I helped start this group. I go because I have friends there whom I have known for decades. I want to be around friends.
Psycho: So start a new group. A discussion group for thinkers, artist, scientists. Make more friends.
Abner: I like being around religious folks; they’re nicer.
Psycho: More tolerant, don’tcha mean?
Abner: I suppose. Certainly more so than I, apparently.
Psycho: Then how about presenting only your view; leave out the discovery part.
Abner: I guess so. Yeah I can do that. I still say that this idea of God having a will is inane. A will is a condition, after all.
Psycho: Nice start Ab. Why is this so important to ya?
Abner: Aren’t you the guy who’s always saying “Never ask why”?
Psycho: Nope. You’re the guy who’s always saying “Never ask why”.
Abner: Oh…yeah…okay…see ya.
Psycho: No ya don’t. What did Magic Man say, anyway?
Abner: He said that God’s will for us is to help each other.
Psycho: Sounds right to me.
Abner: Ya think?
Psycho: Too deep for me.
Abner: See ya.
Psycho: See ya.
