Pantheon

Which God to worship today?
The flower God?
Or at least his creations.
The poppy,
Or the sativa plant,
Or psilocybe semilanceata.
Or the God Billy,
Or Goddess Christina,
Or the Horse God.

Which ritual to perform?
The rite of foil and vapour,
Water and smoke,
Needle and spoon,
Taking the wafer, double dipped is best.

Ah, Holy Communion.

Here is a ritual list courtesty of Micah (700 BC) It would appear from this that God is not too keen on rituals.

" 'Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?'
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness,and to walk humbly with your God."

Forget the rituals. Roll on the justice and kindness.

Cool. Some nice references there Inc.

I rather like ritual though. It seems a necessary part of the human condition, from the chorus march of Greek Tragedy to Kurghan Sacrifice to Gangsta Rap.

As such, you can choose whatever you like.
