"And What About God, in all This Mess?"

"As I was quickly striding along a Parisian sidewalk during a hot July day, a man lowered against a wall called out to me: "Do you believe in God?" Without slowing down my stride, I answered at once "This is an obvious fact". But he at once exclaimed: "No! This is a necessity!"
To close this dialogue, while moving away from the philosopher of the asphalt, I shouted "It is the same!" , but I am not certain he heard me. While continuing my path, I had a doubt: Is God an obvious fact or a necessity? I don't know, after all. This is a vain question, just as questions that can be asked by theologians, or by a drunken man in 18th precinct of Paris.
For me, the problem of God's existence was never a question because I never ever thought, not even for one moment, that the universe might have emerged out of nothingness. And when I see a thinking being proclaim that he or she is atheistic, I am always astonished and I can't take them seriously. Imagining that the universe has no origin is honestly unimaginable. But I am even more ill at ease with these so-called religious people who keep telling you about God's Love, while their heart obviously is full of something totally different.
Since ever I have thought that all the gods exist, and that it is their right. But instead of the "Celestial Father", I have an inclination towards the "Divine Mother". No one instilled this belief in me. My faith in God's feminine nature comes from an intimate experience. To be quite honest, I never really liked the "Unique God" of dogmatic religions. Therefore, I looked for something elsewhere. All sensitivities must be satisfied. I even prayed to obtain my transfer out of Judeo-christianity, but this illness is irreversible. Am I a Pantheist? A Pagan? Those are but labels invented by priests who bless cannons and slaughterhouses.
I believe that the Great Goddess is slowly re-emerging out of the unconscious where patriarchal religions choked it. This is what I have said to myself, and I am rather glad. As for having "the faith" or not having it, this cannot be discussed. There is nothing to prove. It is as simple as love."
