I just find this a bit confusing.


Why not? If God created the entirety of the universe to just be window dressing for the benefit of those on Earth, why not create a few non-believers to test the faithful? And the mountains of evidence that suggest there is no God, why not create that to? It's all a test after all, right?

This is how insidious religious double-think can be, even doubt can be turned around to reinforce faith...

Yes, it does smack of sadism. Yet. It falls in line with things I was told -- like the whole thing with Judas was part of god's plan -- so when he hung himself, judas was forgiven -- because he was part of the plan.

Yet, Eve taking the bite of the apple was the root cause for thousands of years as an excuse for women to be oppressed. It's why we have pain in child birth. At least that's what we told -- if there is no "free will" and god basically set up Eve to fail and knew she'd drag Adam down too...why not just make them aware from the start? Why does it always seem like god enjoys this cloak and dagger stuff?

I really wish I didn't think of these things...it's far easier to be a "believer".

The sun rises in the West and the bird shits on the coffeetable.
