Dear God

Posted by shanoah on August 5, 2009

This isn’t related to the last post either, except, perhaps, in that it isn’t related.

Don’t really have much time for posting today, but here’s a song by XTC I found. This one is called Dear God, and basically consists of the ranting and raving people of a highly Christian background tend to do when they rub more then two brain cells together.

Of course, in my opinion, the fact that there is suffering in the world doesn’t mean god doesn’t exist. It just generally means that there is something wrong with the model of god given, or that there are constraints that you don’t know about.

Besides, if bad things didn’t happen, we’d still be in the stone age. And, frankly, good and evil are too sides of a coin; you can’t really have one without the other.

Still, I like songs like this. It shakes people out of complacency…
