I was asked to pray for the people in the Houston area, for those that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey’s assault. While my heart goes out to each and every person whose life was ripped apart, I don’t understand the need to pray.
For the sake of argument, let’s say there is a God, an all seeing and knowing god. Is he (or she or it) not the one who created the storm? Couldn’t he have stopped it before it reached land? If that is not the case, how can praying help? It seems that if God can help, he never made the storm in the first place.
So tell me, if God is responsible for all, it would appear that this omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence and omnibenevolent thing wanted the hurricane to do what it did. How could it be otherwise?
By the way, I am hoping for my heart that the people in Florida will be safe this weekend.
Let me get off my soapbox.
I had an idea for a short film. A man invents a time machine with a purpose. Is it to prevent John F. Kennedy from being assassinated? No. Is it to kill Hitler before as a baby! No. He wants to stop John Lennon from meet Yoko Ono. He succeeds and then when he returns to the present, the universe is destroyed. OK, it is a bit like the Star Trek episode with Joan Collins. The show is like 50 years old, so I think it will be ok. I’ll just say it is a homage.
Hey, new episodes of BoJack Horseman! Going to watch them all this weekend. Love BoJack. “Back in the 90’s I was in a very famous TV show…” Netflix cuts out the song at the end. NOT COOL NETFLIX!
My wonderful wife also bought me Ash Vs. The Evil Dead season 2 on Blu-Ray! Oh yeah!
So, we had this tree cut down. Well, we didn’t have it cut down, the city did. You see, last winter the snow and ice got so heavy about a third of it broke of and fell to the ground. It was near the roadside, so I guess the city thought two-thirds of a tree didn’t look good. So they chopped it down. It was a beautiful flowering tree that the whole neighborhood loved. After it fell, or a third of it fell, they acted like a family member died. Why am I telling you this? Well, you see the tree is growing back! All around the stump area, little trees have been popping up. We are letting one grow. Cool, no.
Speaking of GOD, I was thinking about the afterlife. I don’t believe in an afterlife. Usually I’m ok with that but sometimes… I would really like to see how this how human race/Earth thing turns out. I want to see the end. To think about it, the end might have already started.
