God left this place a long time ago
Taken from a quote from Blood Diamond, "Sometimes I wonder, will God ever forgive us for what we've done to each other. Then I look around and I realize, God left this place a long time ago."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jx_wyO2uGK8

Why does no one ever suggest that God is real, but he moved on in disappointment? Let's say the things in the Bible ARE true, but that after the Jesus thing, we still didn't change and so God abandoned us? He obviously doesn't interact with humans anymore like he did in the Bible. So where is he?

I've always thought it strange that a limitless, all-powerful being would make one race of flawed beings and that's it. Would he not make several species across different galaxies just because he can? A chef doesn't spend years trying to fix a cake he fucked up, he starts over with a new cake, and then does it again and again. Maybe God does exist, but he's over in a different galaxy playing with the creatures he created that are behaving much better than we are. We are the red headed stepchildren and God is off having Christmas with the family he actually enjoys spending time with.

"Ain't got no last words to say, yellow streak right up my spine. The gun in my mouth was real and the taste blew my mind."

"We see you cry. We turn your head. Then we slap your face. We see you try. We see you fail. Some things never change."

Think it played the old suicide bomber card going on some 14 billion years ago now out of sheer fucking boredom. We're just fucking shrapnel. Big Grin

Ray Bradbury has short story like that, will have to go and find it, I think it was titled "The Stranger" but not 100%.

***** "The Man" short story found in his compilation The Illustrated Man!

Never thought of that before either. A being such as a god wouldn't just die. It would have to expel all it's powerful energy outward in an awesome Hollywood explosion. We are pieces of a god.

I smell a new religion here, where's egor?

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Don't blame Girly, I'm just a lowly computer scientist. Blame the goddam physicists, they're always the troublemakers stirring shit up. Big Grin

Happy to hear it. I first read that book twenty-five years ago, brilliant writer with an incredible imagination.
