If there is a God, he ain't natural. Why do I say that? Because God has supernatural powers. Most things you see in nature are created and destroyed naturally. But God doesn't work that way. Instead of letting things work out naturally, he butts in and screws things around until he's happy. Until he gets bored. Then He screws around again. Like Mankind. Perhaps God is really a metaphor for Mankind, or at least what Mankind aspires. Instead of working with Nature, we pretty much try to take over, throw our weight around, try to show Nature who's boss. But if God is a metaphor for Mankind, remember it's not nice to fuck with Mother Nature, and she is damn good at showing who's really running the show. Whoa, chopping down the trees? Burning more fossil fuels? Try breathing in thirty years time, Mankind! Where's your rainforest now Mankind? Huh? Huh? Think you can blow up the Earth and everything on it? Here's a couple large rocks from the asteroid belts to wipe you out, you maggots! Hell hath no fury like Nature, period!
Whatever happened to true heroics, not people being celebrated as heroes who really aren't heroic at all - not talking about such pretenders like rock stars and media celebrities but policemen, firemen, schoolteachers - admittedly all incredibly tough thankless jobs - but they are JOBS, nonetheless, and being heroic is nowhere in any of their job descriptions. You have to be strong, resourceful, quick of the mind, dedicated, honest, but heroic - nope, ain't there.
The idea of hero has been diluted so much, we invented the superhero, because the hero accolade has become so common. Now the term superhero is started to become a tad watered down.
What's a real HERO to do?
And what IS a real HERO anyway?
