Many domineering people who have been entrusted with great power --- tend to think that they have the right and/or power to transcend, ignore, subvert and/or change the laws that they do not like; or which they find standing in the way of their getting/doing what they desire. We need to recognize that there are various kinds of laws which domineering people do not WILLINGLY and GRACIOUSLY obey, honor, support and/or reverence: 1. Contracts freely entered into, in which personal promises have been made to fulfill the terms of the contracts. 2. Administrative rules and regulations made pursuant to city, county, state, national and/or international laws. 3. Legislation passed by cities, counties, states, nations and/or world-wide legislative bodies. 4. Judicial interpretations of legislation which has been passed and published in proper ways. 5. Constitutional provisions which create the frameworks within which all of the above take place. 6. Utterly regular patterns in cosmic processes which are DESCRIBED by the most reliable and accurate laws and integrative theories (NOT hypotheses) of modern science. The word "theories" above points to the most comprehensive and thoroughly tested DESCRIPTIVE statements which integrate into a seamless whole --- the many thoroughly tested descriptive laws --- which integrate into seamless wholes --- vast amounts of thoroughly confirmed experimental evidence. Many lay people who are not thoroughly educated in regards to scientific research --- fail to distinguish between the as yet inadequately untested and tentative "hypotheses" --- and the thoroughly tested and fully agreed upon great laws and integrative theories of: Newton and Einstein in regards to gravity and objects in motion; Franklin, Ampere, Faraday, Henry, Oerested, and Maxwell in regards to electricity and magnetism; Rutherford, Plank, Einstein, Schrodinger and Dirac in regards to wave-particles, wave-mechanics, and quantum phenomena in general; and Einstein, Hawking and other cosmologists in regards to the evolution of the cosmos as a whole. Domineering/addictive people who commonly show a lack of respect for contractual, administrative, legislative, judicial, and constitutional laws --- often think in terms of a Domineering God whom they view as having so much power that their Domineering God is presumed to be able to ignore or change the import of the most reliable regularities of cosmic processes --- which are described and integrated into the theories of the most reliable scientists all around the world --- who agree with each other to extents which relatively few people in the world are aware of and/or appreciate. Is God the supreme Addict who ignores and changes the most reliable and regular patterns of process; or is God a Loving presence that helps humans work graciously and creatively within the most reliable patterns which have pervaded the evolving cosmos/universe since the first billionths of a second of the cosmos' creative existence/being? Can we with personal and communal integrity worship a god who is presumed to have created the whole universe just a few thousand years ago, but created the whole cosmos so that it would appear to have been created about 15,000,000,000 years ago to astronomers and cosmologists who study light traveling toward Spaceship-Earth from the most distant parts of the expanding cosmos? Would a loving god then guide religious leaders to write down texts which now teach us that the cosmos is a few thousand years old, but will appear to be 15,000,000,000 years old because of god's deceptive behavior? Does God demonstrate integrity or an intention to deceive and mislead believers? (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
