do you protect them from their own stupidity all the time
When has "God" ever protected us from the most foolish of acts? Last I recall, it was the Russians who finally cornered Hitler, not "God". Last I
knew, it was the U.S. who ended World War 1, not "God". Last I knew, it was Reagan who managed to defuse a highly tense situation involving nuclear
missiles, not "God".
Tell me, in the most pivotal points in history, where was "God"? Just as I cannot prove to you he wasn't there, you cannot prove that he was, and
to all appearances, it was MAN who had to drag his own hind end out of the fire. Sure, we don't protect our kids all the time, but we sure as hell
intervene when they try to kill each other.
would you protect a two year old much more carefully as you would a ten, or 16 year old, how about a 25 year old adult???
'25 year old adult' is not how I would describe the human species. Somewhere between 14 and 16, maybe.
you want to know what happens to overprotected kids, look at some of the rich brats who have had mommy and daddy constantly bailing them out
of jail, finding them their next job, or paying their unpaid rent so they can have a roof over their head...
You are clearly misunderstanding, perhaps deliberately. Only an idiot can't figure out how to raise a child. It's not necessarily easy, but it
isn't rocket science either. And surely an omniscient being who was only interested in subservience would have already taken care of that before we
were even created, yeah?
no self respecting father is gonna coddle his kids forever, well into adulthood, not if he loves them...
You're assuming this is an adult species. What, we're not going to evolve anymore? This is the best we can expect from our species? No wonder we've
but sometimes, it would be nice if the kids, when they got into trouble would come and ask for a little assistance, advice, whatever,
wouldn't it, especially before they go blowing the hades out of the innocent bystanders...like Iraq???
What if they ask the wrong people for advice? What if they decide they don't need advice? When's the last time our world leaders asked anyone for
advice? Our world leaders take orders from the guys writing the checks and analyzing the data. They are the kings of the chess board, they rely on the
other pieces to protect and guide them.
