I was listening to a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers today, and they said "One big crash that no one dies in." The song is titled "Look Around if you haven't heard of it. And it got me thinking, people would call that a miracle. If 100 people were all involved in the same car crash and nobody was injured it would be a miracle, but that's not a miracle, there was still a giant car crash, a miracle would be if there wasn't a car crash at all like right now. Every time I take a sharp turn in a semi truck, I sometimes drive them working for Cummins, and I don't destroy a car coming around the same turn, it's a miracle. Miracles happening every second but we don't consider those miracles. It takes a truly horrific occurrence for people to realize something good happened. For example, my parents tried for years to have a child, when my mom finally got pregnant she had a miscarriage. My dad stopped believing in God and it was truly horrific. And then my parents had me a couple years later. Had I been born at the right time, it would have just been as simple as having a kid, but since they had to go through all that pain it was 10 times better, and they truly understood the joy of having a kid and my dad became a believer again.
A lot of the Atheists on here would say that if God exists then he allowed all these bad things to happen, and you know what he did. And that's a good thing, because if bad things never happened we would never truly be able to enjoy life. A giant car crash resulting in a few deaths could save thousands from car companys trying to fix their mistakes. In a sick, twisted way, bad things happen for a reason, and I don't know if it's the God from the bible but I believe there is a God governing us. And if you're an Atheist and you refuse to accept that as a possibility then you're more stubborn than the Westboro Baptist Church.
Tl;Dr We can't be happy without bad things happening so bad things do happen for a reason, and a true scientist looks at all the possibilities, not the ones they want to believe.
Thanks for reading my novel, I don't blame you if you don't thumb it up since it's not funny, but don't thumb it down unless you truly believe it is junk.
