Blame

This article is posted with my friend Darryl in mind. I think I remember my beloved even go so far as to call “g-d” an SOB last week and then caught himself acknowledging the SOB’s existence by calling him an SOB, leaving him truly befuddled. Poor thing. I, too, deny the existence of g-d, that SOB. I’m certainly going to hell or some state of spiritual suffering for saying that, but I deny the existence of that “place” too. Oh, what ev. Truth is, I don’t so much care, but I like to have someone to deny or blame when things go topsy-turvy.

I'm not sure if "God" deserves the anonimity of editting it down to "g-d", as if to protect the innocent by changing their names. It's a worthless myth and those who put their lives in his hands, or trust him to take care of the unfortunate, cease living here on earth; instead, they live in some la la land they collectively call heaven. I would miss the struggles here on earth and the joy I get from helping others.

Dude, sign me up for La La Land. I didn't know that was an option!

Can you say "Amen" brothers and sisters! I'm with you puppies!! I can't say anyone or anything has helped me out in life except for myself, friends and the occasional family member. None of which are named god.

That's a pretty interesting article about pain and religion (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4167565.stm. I won't be surprised if they find validity in worshipping idols (hmm, I thought those people forsaked that practice...) helps in times of great difficulty and/or pain. Not that there is some higher being bailing them out, but it gives the brain a place to internally focus and block out the harmful external elements. However, it would be funny (albeit, in a sadistic way) if after torturing the subjects the experimenters only concluded that pain hurts. I'll tell them that before the games begin.
