THE INFALLIBILITY OF GOD - PLUS: WOMEN, CARS AND INSURANCE COMPANIES
Anyone who has read more than one or two of my blogs probably knows that I don’t believe in a god or angles or devils or tinker bell - even if all the children clap.
I have, all my life, been surrounded by Christians that want to proselytize and legislate their religious beliefs.
I do not argue with these people because their belief is stronger than logic.
But when asked why I don’t believe, I usually sight: women.
Christians claim a God of all power, all knowing and all seeing; an infallible designer of the earth, the stars, the galaxies and the solar system.
And yet, any man who has ever accompanied his wife to a gynecologist office realizes that women’s plumbing systems have a real design problem. They seem to have the same road dependability as a Yugo automobile.
Women are plagued with painful periods, irregular periods, prenatal, postnatal, uterine cancer, breast cancer, menopause, leaks, discharges, prolapses, rashes, dryness, urinary tract infections, pain, sensitivity, and an infinite number of things that I will probably never understand.
If an automobile company put out a product that broke down that often their engineers and design teams would be fired and the company would probably go bankrupt.
Don’t get me wrong. I love women’s nether parts and all the bells and whistles and accompaniments that go along to make The Total Woman. But, my point is, that if there were actually a pluperfect, infallible God – designer of the universe – It seems He would have been able to do a better job for women.
The Yugo automobile that sold in the 1980’s was totally undependable. The engines were known to explode, electrical systems regularly shorted out and parts would fall off for no reason. Many insurances companies refused to insure Yugos.
