Jesus Loves Me

Any god who may exist does not give a damn about us.

Imagining an almighty father gives a wit about us, much less that he loves us, seems foolish, naive, childish, absurd after witnessing the horrors unleashed on the innocent. This video is all the proof I need that this loving god simply does not exist. I used to thank Jesus for things I used to imagine he was doing for me. I had no idea how selfish, arrogant, self-centered, ignorant, childish ... again.. absurd such thinking was.

God does not exist. We are ants stuck on a spinning plate, tumbling at the whim of the forces of natural cosmology. Nobody is watching out for me. No divine hand will save me. No guardian angel will leap to my rescue. All the prayer in the world will not stop this ocean from being displaced on this Japanese town, and all the prayer in the world will not displace a single atom to my service.

Thinking and believing anything less in the face of such disaster is nothing less than childish.
