Tear it Down and Start Over

God took up residence in the singularity that created GRB 09042, in the constellation of Leo, a hair over 13 billion years ago.

He’s not the Judeo-Christian God, but with eons of technological advances behind him, Clarke’s Third Law applies. Primitives like us can’t tell the difference.

His data collection and storage systems are godlike (by definition). He’s aware of us even at a range of 13 billion light years. It is well within his capabilities to collapse the big bang.

He detests us. Our weakness and helplessness revolts him.

On the last day God said, “Let there be Darkness.”

Clarke’s Third Law:Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

    1. We will, if all of the energy and matter in the universe suddenly begins falling back toward the center. Not like we could do anything about it…heh.

  1. I like it. I’ve been reading some mystery fiction with a lot of forensic archeology in it … an indication of how long our planet has been in existence and the rise and fall of empires, etc., that part being basically true. Ours, too, will pass away.

    1. I just fiddle with shadders a lil bit. Now a few miles away, where the gang bangers are shooting it out every few nights, they’re some pretty dark dudes.

  2. Challenging stuff! I’ve often thought that the Judeo/Christian/Muslim god, who apparently created a universe of a billion or so galaxies, each containing a billion or so stars, then then waited thirteen billion years for someone interesting to show up, was rather unlikely. I find your version of events much more convincing.

  3. Atleast we don’t have to worry about the stock market or the kids college fund wihen that day comes…. Interesting and chilling take on the prompt!
