VIEWPOINTS: What sound do you associate with the divine? Amanda Greene | Oct 2, 2012 | Comments (4) If you could match the divine to a sound, what would it be? Show Caption | The Nine Emperor God festival takes place on the Thai island of Phuket. It lasts for 9 days and celebrates the beginning of "Taoist Lent" when devoted Chinese abstain from eating all meat and meat products. Both men and women take part in this festival that was brought to Phuket by Chinese workers in the beginning of the 19th century.

Some say Morgan Freeman's voice best matches God's. And of course, there's a Facebook page devoted just to this theory. Or maybe God sounds more like James Earl Jones or Garrison Keillor. Or is it a tinkling bell a la It's a Wonderful Life? Or could it be total stillness or even your baby's laughter. What sound do you most associate with the divine?
