    I got a better question

    Why can't man obey the 10 simple laws God gave us? (The 10 commandments)
    Bring out your dead- The monster is amongst us waiting to be revealed - he bears the number of a man, 666.
    Death is not racist as it is
    color blind it comes for us all regardless of age or standing
    has no remorse, or feels pity
    cannot be reasoned with nor bargained with
    it is coming for us all.

    "Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it."

    That's one of Paul's epistles. Forget which one.

    The problem is, children today get ZERO...MORAL INSTRUCTION. NONE! It's all about, what-can-we-get-away-with.

    That makes us as moral as the Soviets. Which means, we will have the same level of corruption, of economic stagnation, of colorless life. Rejection of morality is NOT liberating; it is de-humanizing and a way to guarantee regression to barbarism.

    I see God watching over his creation but rarely intervening.

    He gave us rules to live by, we can either live by them or face the consequences.

    But the consequence of Hell is even worse of a fate than what man's worst wrath? Why is it considered just or humane that anyone who doesn't believe or accept in the God but is still a good person to go to Hell? Unless you want to go into some mind doublespeak or mental gymnastics. How would you feel about your neighbor if he annihilated his child as consequence for his bad actions? Even if it is all true, why do you think it is necessarily fair and just?

    The whole thing seems akin to a game, where there are losers (those who are damned) and winners (those who go to Heaven) and there can only be two, eternal outcome for any individual person.

    Some questions just don't have answers.

    Why are the political leaders of the whole world, going insane, all at once, now?

    Why must I grow old? I'm young to be old. I knew 80-year-olds more fit and healthy than I am, today.

    Why is there a Hell, and where is it? And why must I go there?

    All the older people I knew who are now dead...they didn't know what I was doing in private when alive; how come I'm told they're watching me now?

    Heaven? A place without need for food, sleep, sex, exercise? Sounds really boring. Sounds really impossible.

    I file all these in an open file-folder in my mind. I will not know, probably. Truth is, few do. They have FAITH, not empirical facts.

    It's part of life. You have to deal with the not-knowing...you're not walking forward, you're walking backwards into the future.
