The finest five words ever written

You can cite your favorites, I’m sure. You can draw from poetry, literature, history, the arts, family, business, architecture, carpentry, proverbs, autobiographies, sports, television, radio, and a host of sources where inspiration sings to you.

We draw interest from personal experiences and personality unique to ourselves which help us clarify what possibly could be these ‘five words.’ My bias is built upon the solid fact that I cannot recall NOT looking into the daily night sky.

Therefore, these five words are poetic in nature, they reveal a simple demurity so unlike the pride of life, and the majestic implications speak of eternal goodness and outright humility. These words demolish false science and show a depth of thought impossible to comprehend in its’ entirety. These words are ravaging to the theoretic goliaths of cosmic insignificance, and on the upside, these words speak to the heart in truth so easy to understand.

These words? Tkx for asking. And oh as an aside……….

He made the stars also.

(gee I wonder where the source is for this…….

your five?)

    I’m drawn between two… more or less depending on my mood. The first… “Grab me a beer, please.”
    The second… what Mr. Descartes said once… “I think, therefore I am.” Although at the end of a challenging day I have been known to utter under my breath, “I thought, therefore I was.”

      You get bonus point for ‘please.’ The Mr. D. quote has long been used as a reference for intellectualism.

      But surely you must admit doug there is a sobriety in my five words that answers to our deepest need, not to ‘be,’ as it were, but to know the Source?

      But tkx for jumping out of the gate. So far you are in 1st. place.


      • Doug says:

        But is that not the endearing trait of man.. to continue to seek and search for the origin of it all? Hell, we consume each other in the process, the desire is that strong. Whether it’s kicking back with that beer to ponder life… or traveling the cosmos.. it’s all about trying to search for the meaning of existence.


        • ColorStorm says:

          Do good, love God- a reasonable meaning?


        • Doug says:

          Do bad, kill people might be “reasonable” to some.


        • ColorStorm says:

          The recent life attempt on Rushdie while being ‘reasonable’ to the knifeman, is seen by sane people as a monstrous, devilish, and despicable act which proves there actually is a set of life standards- and this goes to the greater point of ‘He who made the stars too……,’ in that, He gives humans the ability to choose tween right and wrong.

          Btw, a 3 yr old girl going into a Target bathroom with her mom, should NEVER see a male in there………. reasonable?? Or am I too critical………..

  2. Excellent post, Great Lion! I teach astronomy this semester. Watching the stars in the heavens draws us to God Almighty because he is truth, beauty and good.

    I like “and it was very good” at the end of chapter 1.

    “Godly delusions are pompous certainty.”
    Part of one of Darwin’s quotes, and I am sure it should make you ponder and reflect how true this statement is CS.


    • ColorStorm says:

      Hi Steve. Tkx for your five word selection.

      May as well reference the God delusion too by Dawkins right? People confuse certainty with arrogance. It is rather arrogant to say we KNOW the universe is 14. 6 billion yrs old, How about the certainty of 14. 5 or 13.35 or 12.77. etc etc.

      This certainty will certainly vanish tomorrow when ‘new data’ emerges. You hear this every day. ‘Science’ now says they were wrong about this or that.

      The delusion then is saying per my reference, that God did not make the stars also.

      The delusion then is substituting every other excuse for what can only be obvious.

      I will agree however that many have been deluded by religious charlatans such as Koresh and other cults, and that these clowns have been examples for Christian belief and behavior. No.

      Scripture proves them liars and frauds, as well as laying out an indictment against the pompous Nye, Tyson, Harris, etc, who pretend to know more than God Himself.


      • sklyjd says:

        Thanks CS for that but here is a lot to be said when people such as scientists and motivated individuals actually put a huge amount of effort, time and funds into finding out for themselves and the scientific world how and why everything is as it is and what makes the world, universe and human life tick along even if they do not always get it right first time. When on the other hand all the religious people accept literally everything they read in old so called holly books written mostly by unknown authors and believe the rhetoric told to them by religious leaders, therefore you have to admit that faith is the lazy alternative posing as reality.


        • ColorStorm says:

          Here’s the bottom steve. Your ‘scientists’ have no more smarts than you, they have no more insight than you, heck, most carpenters are ‘smarter’ than the theorists who do not live in the real world.

          I need not rely on others like a crutch to tell me how the world is. I have eyes. A brain. Seems to me it is you who has faith in ‘scientists…………..’

          But no, I do not have to admit that it is faith that tells me George Washington lived, as if faith was a defect. Faith when used properly, and in the hands of sane minds, is a very good thing.

          Your science gods such as the head of Pfizer PROMISED his vaccine would repel covid 100%. Yeah, how did that work out? He has covid. See why I despise fraudulent science????

          So i’ll stick with what is tried and true. By faith he is a liar, and by faith God made the stars. Whose side are you on?

    Ok, I”m going to cheat and give you my favorite 2 words, “But God…..” Throughout the Bible this is mentioned during dire circumstances when things seem hopeless. “But God” carries a lot of weight in making the impossible possible.

    Always love your references to God and the stars. So simple, yet so magnificent.

  6. Now how did I miss this lovely post?

    My favorite verses are, “Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades? Can you loosen Orion’s belt?” That’s more than five words, but I do love the poetry and the ideas behind those words.

    • ColorStorm says:

      Yes, and wouldn’t you agree that the very best of poetic verse is God inspired….

      But if Harvard deans would describe ‘the making of stars,’ it would be a reel of endless prolixity, whereas ‘He made the stars also’ is so quiet and elegant in such few words, as only God would do.


  7. “I am that I am”. The five letters of Aleim, translated God in verse 1 of Genesis and thereafter include ‘I am’, and as a whole can be ‘! am El’, i.e. I am God.
