Becoming God

Fundamentalists believe Jesus was God becoming man. I believe that Jesus was man becoming God.

— Eric Butterworth

To place oneself in the position of God is painful: being God is equivalent to being tortured. For being God means that one is in harmony with all that is, including the worst. The existence of the worst evils is unimaginable unless God willed them.

— Georges Bataille, 1897-1962

This is the very worst wickedness, that we refuse to acknowledge the passionate evil that is in us. This makes us secret and rotten.

— D. H. Lawrence

Only among people who think no evil can Evil monstrously flourish.

— Logan Pearsall Smith

It is not enough for us to prostrate ourselves under the tree which is Creation, and to contemplate its tremendous branches filled with stars. We have a duty to perform, to work upon the human soul, to defend the mystery against the miracle, to worship the incomprehensible while rejecting the absurd; to accept, in the inexplicable, only what is necessary; to dispel the superstitions that surround religion – to rid God of His Maggots.

— Victor Hugo
