The point is there is no blaming on God but “The God Said so”.

sorry for bad english.

So far, the people like being controlled for the most part. They have a sickness of guilt and superstition which will take a few more generations before it is exposed as a bogus philosophy. In the mean time, they will just devour themselves. It’s Darwinism at its best.

The continents swim around on it and have been doing so for billions of years.

If God was punishing the people living around the Indian Ocean, he must be in a constant state of turmoil himself?
He can’t seem to stop hitting things all over the planet. He sounds a lot like al Qaeda or the USA, come to think of it.

The next major earthquake anywhere will also, by definition, be the “punishment of God” according to these people, and they will never know exactly what they did to deserve it. But God must be clever. He must believe his victims should make up excuses for his actions? If they get another big quake they will have to come up with another excuse.

That usually works. And God doesn’t have to prove a thing to anyone. That’s what I was raised on too. God was always defined as the supreme infantile motivation under everything and everyone: God the big crying flailing baby.

Still the photos of ghosts at prayer look so attractive.
But there is more individuality in a mowed lawn or in a carton of eggs. “God” so loves a uniform, I suppose? Be careful Aceh: God may not want so many eggs in one basket, so to speak.

God can be one of those ideas, that once you’ve got it – you can’t quite get rid of it, but you can never actually prove it was responsible for anything at all in your life.

That could be called Ghosts worshiping ghosts.
