On the topic of hyperbole

What if god himself came down from heaven and talked with you and told you all the secrets of the universe. How would you describe that experience?

I guess you'd have to say it was pretty cool, cause you already wasted the word "AWESOME" describing a bag of cheez doodles.

If I thought a god had spoken to me I would seek out a medical and/or mental health facility to find out of I had a brain tumor or had gone insane.

I'd be pretty sure I was hallucinating and would think I'd done gone 'round the bend.

I would describe such an experience as psychotic. πŸ™‚

I think I will continue to use Google......

Great point, guess I would express how pissed I was that the bastard waited 60 years to tell me!

Are you saying that cheese doodles are not awesome???

(I am not sure that cheese doodles exist and will not accept that they do exist just because some people think that they are awesome.)

What an awesome comment you have made there!

@anglophone Why, thank you! Your reply was every bit as awesome!

@Gwendolyn2018 But nowhere near as awesome as cheez doodles

@TheoryNumber3 I shall have to seek out these things called "cheese doodles" and judge for myself!

On the subject of cheese doodles, for the last four years I found it very hard to be around anything of a yellowish orange color maybe four years from now, or next month I shall indulge again.

@oldFloyd That did cross my mind, but not knowing what "cheese doodles" are, I held out a foolish hope that they were not like Cheetos. Silly me.

@Gwendolyn2018 I think it was Cheeto Christ stupid Czar that turned me off to Cheetos. 🀣

@oldFloyd I totally get it. Hallowe'en was challenging due to the preponderance of ORANGE!

@oldFloyd I rarely ate them anyway as I avoid most snack foods, but maybe I will celebrate the orange menace's departure by eating a small bag!

@Gwendolyn2018 I'm not a snack food person also but if I do I prefer the puffed over the crunchy. 😁

@oldFloyd Crunchy for me!

I would know that I had finally become totally and irrevocably insane.

Great! I'd kill him then because I now know everything so he's not needed anymore. Then I would write a better best seller.

You would be dead!!

The secrets of the universe are not for mere mortals!!!

Then they would not be secrets if we knew!

Hence no universe!!!

LMAO!!!

damn! I hate it when that happens

Bad drugs! Since I don’t do drugs, I guess it would have to be toxic food. 🀣

One day while I as meditating out under a tree a person came up to me and told me of the wonders of the Universe. He gave me knowledge of everything, the meaning of life, why we are here and how we got here. He stayed with me for some time answering all questions and proving the answers he was giving me were correct. It was all scientific and the proof I was able to write down to give away for all to understand. I asked if he was god and he told me that he was from Arguina 6 a star system many light-years away. I learned there is no god and it was proven to me. I am writing a book on the experience.

I would wonder 2 things:

  1. Why was I doing acid, I have no desire to do that.
  2. How cut was that acid, because that would be a bad trip.
    But seriously, let's play hypothetical. I would take that knowledge and start to test it. If it was useful, I would cure everything. I would solve world hunger, I would do all of the things that god is supposed to do. And I wouldn't need a starship to do it.

What a load of hyperbolic crap!

If it was real. I'd have to give a whoa, whoa, hold up there chief. You have some explaining to do, and grill him/her, it, whatever. on a long list of shit. Let's start off with slavery, or genocide. Your pick. and go from there,......

2

God would have to do some of magic to convince me it was real. Then I would ask it if the bible was it's holy word, or just human trash.

I'll speak for god here (some people have referred to me a "goddess" ): it is human trash. It was also plagiarized from earlier myths.

Personally,

  1. I'd be asking for I.D. to begin with,
  2. I'd checking to make sure my coffee, etc, wasn't spiked,
  3. I'd be phoning the local Police and having him/her/it arrested and charged with Home Invasion and Trespassing on Private Property.

I could not answer that until it happened and I'm not holding my breath.

I'd expect I was dreaming.

Now I'm hungry for cheese doodles.

Happens every time!!

A really odd dream .

I used to recommend that my Scouts keep some cheese doodles in their survival kit, not only are they a quick source of energy for the body but they make excellent fire starters.

I would describe it as being High as a Kite. If that imaginary, drug enabled conversation led to my acting in a more civil and empowered way then I would call it a good thing.

I totally, do not use the word awesome, for sure, πŸ˜‰ and I can't say really cool. If I remember correctly Randall said it was a real botch job. I'd have to agree. πŸ˜„ And leave the map when you go. πŸ˜‰

Sounds like a big hallucination.

How annoying: If there’s anything I can’t stand, it’s a know-it-all.
