A slight alteration on the title today It was posted under the wise men And God, I was not sure at the time On the title. I think this reads better Now Thank you for taking time to read it.'
Eminent Doctors and professors Did meet, at a prominent place For their prominent feats After much preamble; they sat down Face to face; their table was long, a Shiny space. Their gizmos and gadgets the very best They spoke on many topics from health To outer space; even vests. Rarified though not verified; their thesis’s Verged on stultified Unabashed they all rumbled along; it caused pain in the ears as it Lingered long! And so their attention arrived at God His attributes they sifted with grimace And nods. Then came; the summing up to wit’ Now I’ll disclose it bit by bit He never lies, or brags Himself; yet holds Position on the highest shelf. A stage that none could ever attain, No matter how worthy or how they trained! He always had an answer ready, He made The stoutest men unsteady He always did just what he said. And He Claimed He would judge the quick and The dead! He had that Son of great repute, yet who kept gutter company all This is forsooth Such discrepancies and such power and Pride I felt their indignance; and chagrin inside! There we have it; 70 voices intoned' as each came to the table Each placed a stone He has no intelligence; in unison they all groaned, it’s extreme Autism. He’s as dumb As these stones! ©Joe Maverick 6-12-2021

I think it's part of the truth Harry' also I remember talking To teachers in the 1980's having Then no idea of anything other Than it was a deficiency.' But They had just said at my Comisseration how do you rate Intelligence.? These words Came back to me as I was Meditating in light of God's Reality and His traits as the Bible espouses.!

Joe, this is very deep. Reading what you said to jack helped me understand better your message. The Pharisees also surely misjudged Christ. One day He will return to save the righteous.

Hi Andrea, It references the law Keepers/faith administrators as 70 was the member number And it mirrors onto a God 'Sceptic science' industry that Has continued to grow along With the decline in human care And interaction in society Which I won't belabour now.'

Hi Jack, I've been turning thus Over in my Mind awhile, I realised God's makeup is He never lies Always listens' when He says He Does! A lot of these traits are Shared by autistic people.. Is that Then a branch of perfection that Say Enoch and Abraham would Have had more in full? That has fractured more and more as sin Increased? And the world's Attitude to such traits? To lump Them up as a deficiency' if had In abundance as it were.)
