Random Quote #27 topic: atheism, Wayne Aiken's atheism cookie file

"Don't tell me God works in mysterious ways. There's nothing so mysterious
about it. He's not working at all. He's playing. Or else He's forgotten all
about us. That's the kind of God you people talk about- a country bumpkin, a
clumsy, bungling, brainless, conceited, uncouth hayseed. Good God, how much
reverance can you have for a Supreme being who finds it necessary to include
such phenomena as phlegm and tooth decay in His divine system of creation?
What in the world was going through that warped, evil, scatalogical mind of
His when He robbed old people of the ability to control their bowel
movements? Why in the world did He ever create pain....

Who created the dangers? Oh, He was really being charitable to us when He
gave us pain! Why couldn't He have used a doorbell instead to notify us, or
one of His celestial choirs? Or a system of red and blue neon tubes right in
the middle of each person's forehead?....

They certainly look beautiful now, writhing in agony or stupified with
morphine, don't they? What a colossal, immortal blunderer! When you consider
the opportunity and power He had to really do a job and then look at the
stupid, ugly little mess He made of it instead, His sheer incompetence is
almost staggering. It's obvious He never met a payroll. Why,no self-respecting
businessman would hire a bungler like Him as even a shipping clerk!"
[Yossarian to Lt. Scheisskopf's wife,
_Catch-22_, 1961, by Joseph Heller]
