Ten Questions: Number Six

Question #6: Why do bad things happen to good people? That makes no sense. You have created an exotic excuse on God's behalf to rationalize it.

As was discussed in a previous question, there are no good people. All people are inherently evil. There is no dichotomy, no miscarriage of justice, when bad things happen to bad people. There is, however, a problem with good things happening to bad people. In that case, one has to appeal to divine mercy as an explanation.

There are also no tall people, all people are short, which is why it is perfectly just for God to put up a sign saying "You must be this tall to get into heaven" on top of a sycamore tree.

Let us put it this way: All people were tall. All people demanded to be short. God let them be short, but offered to make them tall again. People then demanded to be treated as tall even though they were short.
