God is being and nothingness, everything and no thing
Below are four of the sixteen epigrams, including the
first and last, that comprise "Some
Call It Et Cetera; I call It God."
It may be read aloud, chanted or sung.

Out of nothingness came beingness - the
universe - earth, water, sky, stars, moon and
sun, followed by plants, fowls and animals,
including man, the masterpiece of Genesis,

Some call it Evolution;
I Call it God.

Masters mastering themselves, Moses,
Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Akhenaten,
Zoroaster, Confucius; Sacred Books, the
Bible, Torah, Koran, Bhagavad Gita;
Faiths, Christianity, Judaism,  Buddhism,
Hinduism, Islam; the spiritual essence
within every man that transcends all
faiths and engenders meaning in livingness,
Some call it religion;
I call it God.

Listen to the words of Jesus, "The Father
and I are one, I pray that they all may be
one, even as the Father and I are one."
Some call it joint-heirs" inheritance;
I call it God.

The Creator of the created, observing
His own handiwork, said, "And it was
good...very good,"
Some take g-o-d out of good and call
it zero,
I take zero out of good and call it God.

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 8/24/2012
If God is so easy understand, why is so much being said over and over and written to try to justify that God exists, etc? Because humans, especially young humans at their questioning age, are susceptible to indoctrination by repetition. Once they understand by hearing it over and over again, they believe, simply because they no longer think for themselves and let someone else do their thinking for them.

They become enslaved to God and have to keep justifying over and over why for the rest of their lives because it is the only way they can overcome their fear of the unknown––most likely their pending death. We all die, so I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it and whether or not I'm going to heaven or hell because they don't exist except in books like the Bible and Dante's Inferno, etc.
