Where is God?
A simple question from a simple person: Where is God? If he exists, he must be somewhere. I don't mean in the metaphorical sense, as in, "Wow I am going through a bad patch right now, God where are you?" but rather as in physically, where the fuck is he? I mean, for a person to believe in something, typically it has to BE somewhere. Is he in Australia? Is he down a mine shaft? Is he on Uranus? Is he on the other side of the galaxy? Is he far, far away, in the outer reaches of the universe? Because if he's that far away, then the laws of physics say that he can't see anything immediately, he'll have to wait until light reaches him before he knows you've done something bad. Far enough away, and you can live your entire life without him knowing. If he's close by, then why can't we see him? Just wondering. Where is God?
Time for today's quote:
"We trained hard...
but every time we began to form teams, we would be reorganized.
I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet new situations by reorganizing,
and what a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress
while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization."
-Petronius Arbiter (around 60 AD)
Until the next time,
