It would be great if there was a god [Trollville]
Or rather, a good god. Yahweh and Allah are both horrible monsters, so it's better that they don't exist. But if there was a good god, that would be nice. It would neatly solve all of life's problems:
God would destroy all the 'bad' people in the world.
Then he'd create a paradise so all the 'good' people could live forever with their friends and loved ones. All the suffering of 'good' people would end forever, and death would be defeated.
He'd tell us everything about the universe so we could have complete understanding.
Can we admit that that would be really good? Can we admit that it sucks that the above isn't true? Again, I'm not a theist, I'm the rare atheist who yearns for a good god to fly down here and make things right (or rather, a rare atheist who admits that he wants a good god to fly down here and make things right), b/c life w/o god sucks IMO. Without a good god as I described, the good will go on suffering while the 'evil' continue prospering, people die forever, and we will never have complete understanding of this universe. That sucks, just admit it.
