    The problem of pain is a good question. I just dislike the specific inquiries as if they're somehow original or insightful.

    Because Jesus is a cunt (or doesn't exist). Either way, that pisses off most people.

    Meh... being an atheist heathen.. I kinda like these kinda sayings. If shit hits the fan I'm going to pull on any last piece of HOPE i can. .. short of going to 'faith'... I'd like some 'realism' to reassure me. These sayings are based on known truths.

    It is what it is... there is no other way of looking at it :chair:

    I might hate this one most of all.

    I think all these expressions are for people who have no idea how to respond to a crisis and find comfort in being powerless.
    Ignorance is bliss and all that.
