I made this image after seeing this cartoon by David Hayward. You see, unlike one possible message in David’s drawing, I don’t think that people make up different stories about “God” because they are blindfolded as they grope some underlying divine reality. Instead, I think as they view the complicate world, they are just too tempted into quick, simple answers, or they are easily self-deceived or they are just uncomfortable with the unknown. Oh yeah, I left one possibility out: in the worst case scenarios, they are just manipulative bastards!
Sorry, watching a bit too much of Tim Minchin’s dark humor today — let’s blame him.
Anyway, this have been is my sad attempt at artistry, humor and a tad bit of philosophy. Maybe I should just leave those things to David and Tim. What do you think?
