I ran across this article while I was looking at del.icio.us/popular. One might expect a Conservative Christian like myself to lose it over an article like this. Mr. Harris only makes me feel sorry for him. I won’t kid anyone by trying to explain why God lets tragedy happen. I understand that I will not understand why tragedy’s happen. I just see the 70 or so years on earth as nothing compared to eternity in heaven. I know that the end of a life on earth had to be tragic for someone who doesn’t believe in God. That is because when you boil down the belief that there is no God, there is no purpose for life. How truly sad that must be.
As for me, I will continue to pray for people like Mr. Harris. If Mr. Harris is right, when we die, we die. If I am right, when we die, our new life begins and our choice is between smoking and non-smoking. This is not a question I would want to be “Stuck on Stupid” over.
