Getting Off God

Why would God frown upon humans using their bodies in every conceivable way, especially if God created these possibilities in the first place?

Assume for a moment God exists and did indeed create everything.

That means we were created according to Its grand design. This means that some women, for example, are double-jointed and incredibly flexible (Giggity!). It also means that anything conceivable we do to ourselves is enabled by God's design.

Since the cartilage of our ear lobes can be pierced, we can adorn them with earrings. Since our skin holds dye, we can give ourselves tattoos. This also means that since we can manually pleasure ourselves, we can masturbate.

If God indeed created these and so many other possibilities, painful as well as pleasurable, why presume these are wrong based upon the limited vision of those "inspired" by God to write Scripture, which has been interpreted to make many such activities sin?

RECAPTCHA the Imagination!

One of my favorite blogs, I AM NOT A ROBOT, specializing in user-contributed images highlighting sometimes wild and zany RECAPTCHA text.

In the immortal words of Forrest Gump, "You never know what you're gonna get." In this case, it can be a wonderfully goofy exercise in creativity.
