Bedubya BS: Bizarre Moments in Our Times (103* d) RE: BS: Bizarre Moments in Our Times 21 Mar 01


Every time I hear a story like that of Mr. Aberima I am dumbfounded by the sheer amount of egotism involved.

Intentionally putting oneself in deadly peril and trusting in the divine for rescue appears on the outside to be an act of faith and, as such, an attempt at ego transcendence. In actuality, it is purely a function of ego to assume that one knows the "will" of the divine or that anyone has such a special relationship with "God" that they are immune to the laws of nature. If there is a God He/She must laugh His/Her ass off every time this kind of shit happens.

Cheers
