If there is a god, and I’m not saying there is,

But if there is at least one god anyway,

Then what is time to a god?

 

Is one hundred years a minute to a god?

Or does god slow time down, I mean,

How else do you get everything done?

 

You know time is elastic, right?

Of course you know that, about gravity

Warping space and time.

 

High and fast at the mountain peak,

(I thought that was because of the chill.)

At the Dead Sea time is predictably slower.

 

If time can go faster and slower,

Then time is not absolute and so,

In theory, anyway, time can reverse.

 

And what I really want to know is this:

Does at least one god ever go back to fix its mistakes?

Thanks Adam. I think nature knows how to fix mistakes if those silly humans don't keep making a mess.

I like the juxtaposition of the chilly mountain peak and the Dead Sea

gods are ideas. the real god is nature and we will never truly understand.

rational thought can be misleading

Thank you. I could not agree with you more - nature is the god we've tried to remake in our own image.
