"I think science is irrelevant in a dramatic situation such as this. When you see thousands of people dying for no reason you couldn't care less what evolution has to say, because what evolution has to say is not what we want to hear."

I know. The fact that it's not what we want to hear is all the more depressing. We long for a caring, nurturing universe that will save us from ourselves in the end, but I don't see one forthcoming.

"The picture of an indifferent God who created the universe and then sat down to watch its misery from a distance haunts me now as it never did before, not even when I lost loved ones."

It hurts like hell. I remember lying awake at night in agony over thoughts like these. An indifferent God is the only place I can find for him, if any at all. Believers will tell you "Those people are all up in eternal paradise right now, and the terrorists are burning in hell." Does that really make you feel any better?
