The human species is comparable to a lot of people who were born in dire circumstance and weren't raised in much better ones. And yet they still
pulled through and became successful members of society and all that jazz. So really, I'd say that we're just as much to blame as any god responsible
for our existence.
As much as a god may be responsible for our flaws and strengths, we're the ones who have chosen to be overcome with our greed and our spite, our lust
and our wrath. We are the ones who have decided it isn't worth fighting. That is not the fault of any god - that is our own bed to lie in. Even if a
god would choose not to help, that doesn't mean we cannot power through these difficulties on our own steam. Few things are stronger than the human
With that said, the Biblical god, should he exist, has a hell of a lot to answer for - and as I have said before, if he chooses to judge us for our
weaknesses, then he must also judge himself for having designed us with these weaknesses, knowing exactly what the result would be. Every crime, every
sin, was known by him before it was ever committed, and he allowed them to happen. So he is the father, the creator, the enabler and the provoker, of
each and every sin that ever existed. Taking that into consideration, I'm fairly certain that if ANYONE has earned a seat in hell, it is him. We only
did what we were made to do, according to his plans. He is the master architect, and he should have known better.
So if anything at all, it is WE who should be saying farewell.
Us: "Farewell, foolish young deity - you have squandered your power, and you have shown a grievous corruption in your rule. You've displayed a tyranny
and cruelty most unnatural, the likes to have made Hitler bow his head in shame and awe! For this, you will share the fate to which you have unfairly
condemned the creatures which you have designed, unless you choose to undo all you have done and begin anew with a fresh understanding of what it is
to be king of kings. This power is not a toy, nor a weapon - it is a responsibility. A responsibility, perhaps, too great for you to grasp. You must
cherish life, not destroy it. But what is this you have done? Ah...such a shame. You could have done so much good. Maybe next time - if there is one.
Away with you!"
"God" : "NOOOOOO!!"
Aye, my friends...that is a farewell to be proud of.
