THIS POST MAY BE A TRIFLE IRREVERENT




Agnostic
by Yip Harburg

No matter how much I probe & prod,
I cannot quite believe in God;
But, oh, I hope to God that He
Unswervingly believes in me.

I (&, I presume, you) have had a lot of religion crammed down our throats over Christmas.  If you are a believer, you probably don't mind.  If you, on the other hand, are an agnostic like me you have to let some of it out before you are smothered in it.  I apologize in advance to all of you who do believe but if there is a God, He must have a sense of humor; after all, didn't He create mankind?  If I were religious I would be Jewish.  The poem above is my mantra over the holidays.


These first few came from my blogging buddy, Shirley:/

These are ones that I found:


























Assuming there is a God, I hope He blesses you!!

  1. Smiling rather a lot. In an agnostic sort of way.

  2. God? Just one?
    I believe in all the Gods in all the heavens.
    I believe in covering all the bases, just in case.
    and if one of them should see fit to bless me more than I already have been, that's good too.

  3. I tend to waffle in my beliefs and non-beliefs. Fence sitting often leads to splinters.
    Loved the dog on the throne. Makes perfect sense.

  4. The first ones from Shirley didn't open up for me but all the rest did. I simply cannot believe god (if there is one) wouldn't have a fantastic sense of humor. Doesn't seem to be enough joy in most religions. ;)

  5. Ha! That first cartoon reminds me that when I took the buds to work I'd bring a Bible and place it on my lap. That way no one would sit next to me and I got the entire bench.

  6. Loved this whole post. I'm agnostic, atheist, and Jewish. Jews have the best food, so I stick with it.
    Here's to lots more laughs in the New Year, fishducky.
