G-d Speaks or Maybe it is Just Coincidence

Ok, allow me to be the latest to pile onto this story
but I have a different perspective than some of the others. It may just be that I am cranky and irritable, but I have a hard time with the idea that G-d keeps sending messages to people and if we only listened we would be happier.

I like the idea, love the thought that there is a reason for everything that happens but I cannot buy into it. Even as someone who believes in G-d I cannot accept this because it just doesn't make sense to me and I don't think that everything has to make sense.

There is no rational explanation for why the tsunami wiped out the equivalent of three football stadiums of people. There is no logic for why some people lived and others did not. At just short of 36 I know 5 people who died from brain cancer. I spent lots of time with some of them and aside from a dysfunctional digestive system I am fine.

There are some things in life that cannot be explained away as divine providence intervening, it is too easy, too pat and it just doesn't do it for me.

Anyway, that is as much as I want to say on this right now.
