This question was asked to Stephen Fry and I love his answer. So I ask you what would you say?
To answer my own question I suppose I would be more logical and tell God it was his fault I did not believe in him because if he created me then he knows I would not blindly follow anything that reads like a fairytale or where there was no proof of existence.
Can't beat Stephen Fry's response. Some good additions here already, though.
Me? I'd ask him why, when a man rapes his 12 year old daughter, he sometimes pushes that big old 'make a baby' button of his. If he has the power over conception, and every new life is his will and blessing, why does he burden any 12 year old with that? Especially one that's been a victim of their own parent.
Indeed, why does he press that button for people who can't afford to raise their children or won't care for them, and staunchly refuse to press it for well off couples who would dote on their child?
Anyone would think that he just stabbed at that button at random. Or that he and the button didn't exist in the first place.
Him???? I plan to be dead when I have died. None o this magical thinking . I reserve my magical thinking for elves, fairies and dragons. This gives me a chance to post my favorite quote:
“Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.”
Gang rape? Why'd ya think that was a good idea? The bystander effect? Children with cancer? Anybody with cancer for that matter? The elections of 2000 and 2016. Dead 6 million Jews. Why? People spending their entire lives in prison for crimes they did not do. Shame on you.
