“I wrote the answers to life’s riddles on the cuffs of your shirts, and I encouraged you to cheat. And still…”
God has something he’d like to get off his chest…and you’re not going to like it. Suffice to say, he’s not a happy camper! And who can blame him? What a mess! But that’s another subject for another day. We’ve got more than enough on our plates right now…and heeeeeere’s God:
“I created heaven-and-earth (cosmos) and I endowed it (endowed you, homo sapiens) with freedom, reason, and conscience. In your early days, I walked with you and gave you counsel. Later, when you had fallen under Pharoah’s yoke, I freed you from the bonds of slavery and husbanded you from Egypt to Canaan, the Promised Land.
“I gave you 611 statutes designed to give you strength, health, long life, fertility, and prosperity and I guar….an….teed the results! 611 statutes. Wait, did I say 611? I’m sorry, I misspoke, hope I didn’t give you a heart attack; I meant to say two. To make things easier for you, I took the 611 statutes and added two more; but these two summarize the other 611.

At last report, he was hanging upside down, encased in a block of ice, at the nadir of Hell (check with Dante, Inferno). I was determined that that would not happen to you!
“So, I left study aids for you that even you could not ignore…and I don’t mean Cliffs Notes. I wanted to be sure that I would be in your face 24/7/365. Don’t worry; it’s for your own good. You’ll thank me later.
“I wrote my will across the sky (cosmos), and I made sure that every entity within the cosmos reflected that cosmos (check with Leibniz, Monadology). I encoded my will in the ‘signatures of all things I am (you are) here to read’ (check with Joyce, Ulysses). And I embedded a copy of my will deep within your hearts (check with David, Psalms).
“So, who needs Cliffs Notes? I wrote the answers to life’s riddles on the cuffs of your shirts, and I encouraged you to cheat…
