RE: Being irrational
A good friend describing the death of his older brother from kidney cancer said that of course they all knew he would die, it's just when it happened it was still a shock. He didn't think it would be *that* moment.

I could relate to that.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Yeah, it seems that you can be ready for your own death, but never for the death of another person.

Maybe it's a silly analogy, but this reminded me of watching those scary videos where it's just some lake scene and suddenly a monster pops out at you and screams. I'm sure we're all familiar with these silly videos,but even when I know what's going to happen, I still jump when that beastie comes on the screen! It's the timing, I guess. You know it's coming, but you don't know exactly when so it's still, in some ways, a surprise. Or shock, as you said.

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.
