Chocolate. Proof that God May be Out There
Thursday, 19 March 2015
Sometimes, particularly when life isn't very wonderful,
there are things I use to remind myself that God really does exist.
The list is completely random. Made up of things where the only possible
explanation is that something much greater than ourselves is at work.
This isn't the same as proof that God loves us and wants us
to be happy btw. That's another list
entirely involving hugs from a small person; the touch of a much larger one; the
return of Doctor Who; the prefect lipstick; a handbag that you can get all your
crap in as well as other things like "thick and thin" friends.
So we have, amongst other things in the proof that God
exists list -sunsets (not awake early enough for sunrises!), wine and chocolate. In a Metro, in a review of Yael Naim, I found this:
“It has been suggested chocolate proves the existence of
God. In other words, the joy of chocolate, its essential flavour,
the way its chemistry pushes so many physiological pleasure spots, its exact
melting point matching the temperature of the human mouth, are too much of a
glorious coincidence not to be divinely inspired”.
Rev T says chocolate is like love. You can see it's there,
but to truly experience it, you've got to get stuck in and taste it!
I am going to Praise the Lord with Chocolate this afternoon. Anyone reading this is invited to do the same.
Whatever your thoughts about God, chocolate is chocolate. Enjoy!
