Hi Guys & Gals
Right off the bat: please forgive me if I’m a little emotional right now.
I’ve been an Atheist for a long time and whenever some irritating religious human being asks me why I don’t believe I’ve always had the same answer: go swing by your nearest paedeatric oncology unit and let me know how you can even remotely justify what is going on there.
I just finished watching an incredibly interesting documentary on El Jazeerah about the incredibly successful public health system in Turkey. Part of the documentary was the story of an 11 year old girl who was diagnosed with cancer of the femur. After going through all sorts of chemo hell, something any adult will find unbearable, the decision was made to remove the tumerous femur and replace it with a prosthesis. The operation went well and initial indications were that the cancer has been removed even though she still had to get chemo, just to be safe. For as long as I live I will not forget her agonizing cries of pain and the utter hell she had to go through while recovering from the operation.
In the background was her family, her Mom and Dad doing everything humanly possible to make things better for her. Dad worked 20 hour days to provide for them and I could see the pride in him when he prepared her favorite meal on the day she came home. However, the cancer came back, she underwent chemo for a long time and finally passed away a few months after the operation.
So to the religious out there I ask: how can you worship a god that thinks it is perfectly OK to create a beautiful girl just to let her, and her family, go through all of this? I know he doesn’t exist but if he did, all I can say is fuck you, you sick fucking bastard. May you burn in hell for an eternity.
Like I said in the beginning, forgive me for being emotional but if there is any better proof that the fucker doesn’t exist I haven’t seen it.
