One of the most bizarre phrases used by religious people is “the Lord above.”
To begin with, it implies that there’s a supreme being who resembles a mature male human.
But what’s even weirder about this phrase is the implication that God resides “above” us. If you raise a finger toward the sky it points through our atmosphere and then into a region of outer space. But because the Earth is spinning on its axis, a finger that’s pointing up is constantly pointing at a different part of space. This also means that a finger pointing up may be pointing at the same region of space that a finger pointing down was pointing at earlier in the day.
True believers might argue argue that this doesn’t matter because God is everywhere. But if their Lord is all around us and a part of everything, how can this God be a separate consciousness – a supreme being?
