Post Script, Still NS

Just a click away, and I’m at the NY Times, reading about Suffering, Evil and the Existence of God.

At least I’m not the only one wracking my brain on an impossible human phenomenon. 

Ah, why should all mankind
For one man’s fault be condemned? 

But from me what can proceed,
But all corrupt, both Mind and Will depraved?

One of the main themes I always bullshit about is the fact that human beings, as a species, are fucked. We are fucked because we are fucked, and that’s all there really is to it. Wringing your hands about it, and bitching and moaning at the sky whilst clutching your stomach, that’s all about what it means to be human.

In some sick fucked up universal joke on us, we can feel and understand things, but only to a certain degree. Every once in a while, someone is born with a superior brain structure or chemistry or whatever, and they can try to explain things to other people, to share knowledge through crude symbols and abstract reasoning. It all falls miserably short of the “All Encompassing God Strength Aloe Vera for Your Soul.” I mean, that’s what we all want, anyway, a big fucking vat of green aloe vera gel, so you can jump your whole body and soul into it, and just get cooled off, squishy and smell kind of minty.

Anyway, another interesting quote from that article is,

These are the questions as old as Epicurus, who gave them canonical form: ‘Is God willing to prevent evil but not able? Then he is impotent. Is he able but not willing? Then he is malovelent. Is he both able and willing? Whence, then, evil.’

 I am bored at work.
