What is a Human?

Are we flawed fallen angels,

or redeemed devils?

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Very thought provoking. I (stupidly) got into a debate with my mother when she was here visiting over heaven/hell and religion. After three hours she was shocked that the Bible does not, in fact, discuss hell. We will never see eye to eye on anything, but it’s always fun being proven right…lol

    1. My mother is religious. I have my own philosophy of this and that, and my son is an atheist (much to her dismay and dislike). I don’t think there is a heaven or hell either. It is whatever we make it out to be. Unfortunately, there are too many hell bent on destroying everything in the name of their religion (in every nation) that it really does create hell on Earth for everyone else.

    2. But, just to play devil’s advocate, there are plenty of people who are hell bent on creating hell on earth who aren’t at all religious as well. πŸ™‚ Like you I neither follow an orthodox religion nor am I an atheist, I have my own ideas πŸ˜‰

    3. I look at the US with everything we are doing in the name of “our” religion. It’s infuriating. Granted, there are plenty of nutters out there though that cause grief too…lol

  2. I didn’t know was a haiku was, until today. Very clever, may practice this style. A thought provoking Haiku! πŸ€”

  3. I like the idea that we’ve all got a bit of both inside of us – and some are going to fall further, whilst others can be further redeemed. I don’t know… certainly thought provoking! ☺️
