I watched this show called Wilfred last night, about a talking dog who may or may not be god.

 

It was a lot deeper than a show about stoners and talking dogs in suits had any right being.

I'm not "God"...like THE God. The God of Abraham or whatever.

But I think I'm probably a deity.

No, I'm not God. Or a god. Just some dude.

Speaking of Gods, I'm trying to find a cool myth to write modern day.  Anyone? 

I've been worshipped, but I'm no God. 

Wow, that's pretentious as Hell, and a joke.

@Stacy - the great cattle raid (Irish: Táin Bó Cúailnge) could be a good gang warfare tale, if you're into petty disputes erupting into tidal waves of senseless violence.

Thanks J.Y., I love senseless violence in stories. 

Thanks Avery, that's one of my favorites.

I think I've got one, now to write it.

There were only three unequivocal no's, which means one of you guys are probably god.

Define god.

If I could define god, I could be god.  [philosophical f-bomb]

Did Judy Blume write Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing? (Either too tired or too lazy to Google.)

BTW, I feel like I am the Goddess of Awesomeness. I'm just sayin'.

@Stacy, should you be not entirely happy with your current myth, please write a Lysistrata. There can never be enough Lysistratas, more so when written by women.

LYSISTRATA:
    There are a lot of things about us women
    That sadden me, considering how men
    See us as rascals.
               CALONICE:                  
                        As indeed we are!

No I am not God. Although I understand we all look for God in everything, I don't think He will directly reply on a internet forum.

@Sparrow - I think you got it wrong. Did you mean, "I'm a god — I'm not the God, I don't think."

No. I meant what I said. 

But thinking on it...if all it takes to be a god is faith in you as God...I'm probably doing okay. I have four pets and a toddler. Of course the toddler will sort out that Mommy=/=God sooner or later. But the dog? Loyal.

I saw God yesterday, and he let me pet his rat. He was nice and kind-hearted and performed excellent card tricks. Though I must say, his choice in wine was a bit off.

My dogs think so. My cats and characters mock my perceived power. So perhaps a demi-god, as I have some devotees, but not a universal following. But then, who does, really?

Don't take my statement posted before this one tooo serieus (only a little bit.... :) )

I didn't want to add any comments with it, out of respect.

Thank you Freddie and Queen, for all the beautifull music ..............

HA! Not intentionally, but you know...I've seen that movie so many times it is probably working behind the scenes in my subconcious.
