I have four half-written posts, but you won’t get them today. Instead you will have to read this rant. For I have to deal with some shit in my life. Shit caused by God. Yes, God the All-Powerful. You must be thinking why blame God. Well, don’t the religious among us credit God for all the good stuff, like a football victory for example? Shouldn’t he get credit for the good and the bad both?
Doesn’t He move in mysterious ways, doing bad stuff to good people and giving everything to the evil ones? Isn’t He the one who decided that Idi Amin could live in peace till he was 80? Hasn’t God saved Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein from the deaths they deserved while letting thousands of innocent Marsh Arabs, Kurds, New Yorkers and others die? Didn’t He make George Bush the US President? Why does God do this? Does He have a sick sense of humor? Or does absolute power corrupt absolutely? Go on, defenders of God and morality, tell me it is because of my weak belief in the existence of God or because of my not fasting or praying to Him? May be it’s not punishment, just His idea of fun! You see Einstein was wrong: God does play dice with the universe.
My apologies if I have offended you. But like I said I have a problem. I don’t know yet if it will be easily solved or will change my life drastically. All I know is that it was not caused by any living being. That leaves only God as the culprit, if He exists. If He doesn’t, well it’s my problem anyway just like it is now.
