The Devil told me that getting closer to God was not for me, that is was egotistical and vain. It took me more than ten years of my life, but now I've realized that the opposite is true: living close to God requires utmost humility because we know that God us sees us exactly the way we are. The vain man does not want to come close to the light.

I've been writing (but not publishing) more than one post per day and I wonder if part of the exercise is also to restrain yourself to writing one post per day too.

What is the chance of white noise becoming a symphony. And if chance is all you need to create the human race, what is it that the hold Beethoven in a higher regard than a gambler at the craps table? The Fifth Symphony cannot be the work of chance, but the human species can?

Black people armed themselves to fight against oppression, confident that nobody could take a constitutional right from them. White people, not willing to mess with the Second Amendment, asked law enforcement to shoot them on sight. Today, Black people have chosen other means to fight, but whites still shoot them on sight.

Thinking that human beings are the products of accident requires extreme belief in magic. If a system with such high degree of orderliness can arise from chaos without external intervention, how is it that radiation does nothing on the human body but devastation? Why is it that out of the thousands of people who received high levels of radiation in Chernobyl, no one emerged as a more evolved being? Not even one.
