MandolinPaul BS: Afterlife belongs to my Mom (39) RE: BS: Afterlife belongs to my Mom 29 Jul 00


Hey Lena

I was just trying to come up with a good argument against you last statement, with an analogy about my son (comparing God's creation of humankind to our creating a son; possibly a little blasphemous, but you know what I mean). My son is eight weeks old, and I wouldn't want anything bad to ever happen to him.

But then I thought that I will have to let him learn some things for himself, like not being careful while playing can cause a fall, and a skinned knee. Of course, my argument against that would have been that a skinned knee is pretty insignificant compared to some of the things that your god would have us learn.

But...then I thought that if there were a God, our problems would seem pretty insignificant to Him. So basically, I came up with arguments against you and then came up with your rebuttal arguments.

Unfortunately, this isn't the kind of thing that can be reasoned out, to come up with the right answer. If there really was a god of any kind, I doubt that any of us could figure out his reasoning.

Despite all of that, I still think that there isn't such an animal, and that if there were, he's an arsehole.

Paul.
