: : : Most humans live lives of quiet desparation. For : : : most people their is nothing beutiful about life it : : : is simply a struggle to survive. If God exists : : : He is one mean son of a bitch.
: : ***If God does exist, he could have been meaner and not allowed happiness, satisfaction, pleasure, so it gave us a little leeway for some reason, but if I could meet it and know for sure, I would definately plead the case that we need "proof" as well as a double measure of the good stuff, and mabey even less of the ungood stuff.
: Pleasure = life, No pleasure =death, Pain = life, no pain = death.
: When you touch the hot candle it hurts, when you don't it does'nt hurt. What then is pain? What then is pleasure?
: What proof you seek, you will never find. Even if you find the proof, you will still be hurting.
: As organisms we react to events in our enviroment with the tools (nerves) that make us feel (pleasure and pain). They are purely physiological. No karma, no divine interventions. Whatever labels we attach to those events (good or bad) are complicated by the belief systems we have created through time. Analyse the construction of those realities and you will return to a purely simple state of the "physical". We are only good as what see and feel (physiological). If certain chemical imbalance and shift occur in my body it will affect preception and eventually our sense (belief) of reality. So good and bad (truth) are metaphysical as opposed to our clouded assumptions of or sensory reactions. We come up with intagible interventions of divinity to mask our arrogance and stupidity.
: Asking for good is a futile request. This is as good as it gets. Life sucks but the option is no life. There indeed is some good in the pain, the misery, the sorrow, the anger. It is what we all deserve, our birth right. It is what we call living. You could be dead or unborn and not experience it at all.
***Well then, if no divine thing exists to change these things, then we must do it ourselves, but how? I know it is possible to increase the good and decrease the bad we experiance. Our system is open to change, it just needs big pushes. I am an intrest group, but a vertually powerless one, influence,money,control, just stating these things has an effect on the future, so I'll say it a thousand times, we have the ability to change this world, the materials, manpower, technology, spirit? What is it that restricts this vision from becoming reality? GREED of those in control of OUR resourses, and who plan ahead to make us dependent upon what they provide us. The president has no more right to his dinner and a warm bed than the starving child refugee in bosnia... Oh, such preety thoughts, what ideals, thats nice... Who is accountable for allowing war? For the unfairness of the distribution of wealth, and Basic Needs of Earths Citezens, Not me said the U.N., and the Political leaders, and the rich and powerful, and the upper and middle and lower classes in the industrialized countries, that is God's job, and we will let him do it! Paradoxial is'nt it?
