Or if there is a god it is a completely non-interventionist god.
Or if there is a god and he is an interventionist god then he’s mean-spirited and incompetent.
Either way, god either doesn’t exist (most likely scenario) or exists but is neither useful or worth worshipping.
If God exists and is as interventionist as some say then he is responsible for the rain, or more impotantly when it rains. So why does it rain on the weekend, and more importantly why does it rain during the day?
Last weekend (Easter long weekend) I went, with several friends, to Mudgee to go cycling. It was obvious Mudgee hadn’t had any rain for some time, and desperately needed some. So of course it rained whilst we were there on holiday, camping and cycling.
Yesterday it rained just about all day, today the weather started out nice enough so I put a load of washing on the line. No sooner had I got back inside when there was a short bout of rain, but then it fined up again. So later in the day I decided to go for a ride on my bike, I hadn’t gone more than a few hundred metres when it absolutely poured down.
It was about this time that I decided there was probably no god, or else if there is a god, he is a spiteful wanker.
If I was an interventionist god then I’d organise the rain for the night, that way people could enjoy there day out, then go home and enjoy the rain overnight. As I said before, Mudgee really needed rain, and I’m sure the farmers and vignerons appreciated it, but why couldn’t god have organised it for after all the holiday makers left?
It’s now dark outside and not raining! Why couldn’t god have organised the rain for now, so I could have enjoyed a nice ride (and the picnickers in the park finished enjoying their day out with the family), and my washing would have dried?
So obviuosly there is no god, or at least not one that interferes in the functioning of the world.
So next time someone asks for proof of God, ask them about rain.
PS. That’s the second time I’ve been to Mudgee, when a drought has broken.
