The young men above are carrying the remains of an unidentified Iraqi who was one of the 198 people murdered by a series of car bombs that took place in pre-dominantly Shiite areas of Iraq Wednesday.
I am just a human and not a particularly nice one at times. I have no superpowers. I make no great claims to intelligence. I do not know what’s going to happen next week, much less what’s going to happen a hundred years from now.
If I was the most powerful being to ever exist – more than a few people would find themselves sitting on an iceberg in Bermuda shorts about now, at the least. Ahh, who am I kidding? More than a few people would be dropping dead in their tracks with absolutely no explanation as to what happened to them. Maybe I’d make an announcement, maybe I wouldn’t, but one thing’s for sure.
The killing would stop. All the killing. No more murdered daughters. No more murdered sons. No more murdered fathers. No more murdered mothers. No. Fucking. More. Murdered. People.
Yet, this thing called ‘God’ has done nothing. In fact, it seems to be the primary cause of all this killing. Believers say “it’s a test” and “God has it’s reasons”. A frigging test?!? For what? Too see how many idiots it can get to simultaneously declare the latest round of god-inspired murder a frigging test? Did it look at it’s pal the Devil and say “bet you I can get ‘em to praise me for doing nothing to stop Billy Joe from killing a bunch of ‘em because of the ‘voices’ in his head”. Is that it’s reason?
It damn sure looks like it and that puts it squarely in the ‘batshit crazy’ category. Or maybe – just maybe
God does not exist.
