Milly and Shula Rich 1948, Balham, London

How can there be an “intelligence” with so many wicked things happening in the world?

The whole purpose of life is continuity

Does everything have a purpose?

Everything fulfils a purpose, but that may not have been its intention.

If you say something has an intention, that indicates an intelligence.

I think there is no intelligence, I think it’s all random.

How can there be an intelligence with so may wicked things happening in the world?

I don’t believe in God and whilst I am on the subject why do people always refer to God as a man?

If indeed “He” did create us why would He create the bad in some of us, surely we would all be good?

Whatever He is, He is an elderly and would be Jewish as they were all Hebrews then.

The Bible claims Jesus to be the Son of God and he was a Jew so therefore God was an elderly Jewish man!

I love stories  and I love the Bible stories, they are wonderful stories, but that is all they are in my mind.

I think that people have a need to believe. How many million people are there in the world? Do you really think this Deity has a personal interest in each one? If so why would He allow millions to be massacred in the world wars? it’s ridiculous.

And as for people killing in the name of God that would mean God is a murderer.

If He is so powerful surely He can do it himself, He sent ten plagues, didn’t He? Parted the waters of the Nile! If somebody did an analysis of that, there would be natural explanations for it all.

It’s the nature of life that it ends and it flourishes.

Why are there bad bacteria? Why is there cancer? There are also cosmic catastrophes, lumps of earth colliding. The idea of space is impossible to encompass, it’s too big to encompass and we can only do what our limitations allow us to do.

All life is in a cycle, it lives and it dies to make way for the new, it is a constant renewal system. The whole purpose of life is continuity, apparently nothing lives forever in its same form, it only lives through constant renewal and that in my opinion is the purpose of life.
