God

Apologies in advance if I offend any readers who believe in God, this is not my intention; however I do believe in the right of free speech.

In my humble opinion I find it strange that believers credit God with everything good or bad in their lives.  If they manage to overcome some trauma or terrible situation it is because God gave them the strength and was watching over them.  If major shit hits the fan it is God testing and training them to be more resilient.  What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?  And of course God will not send you more than what you can bear.

Why doesn’t God stop child abuse, war, famine, natural disasters, the cruelty and evil we inflict on one another?  Ah you see we are given freewill and we choose to do harm and be bad.  It all started in that Garden of Eden with the snake and Eve and an apple that wasn’t supposed to have been bitten.

Me, I think we are on our own and this is it so make the most of it.  Life is not a dress rehearsal, no take two, no encore either.  What you see is what you get, no more no less.  Tell the ones who matter you love them while you can.  Eat your favourite food in moderation; you don’t want to accelerate your end needlessly but do enjoy life and live it to the full.  But do no harm.
