Shat Happens.

Ok, so admittedly I am not the biggest Bible buff.  And, yes, I have read the book.  I tend to agree with Einstein on this one – “The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.”

None the less, I was recently (re)exposed to the following Bible verse and found it of particular value…

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
Ecclesiastes 9:11

In short, when shit happens, its not because your god is punishing you for your misdeeds (though he does see the dirty things you do with your old glow-worm), but is instead happening because when given a long enough time frame, shit will, in fact, tend to just happen.  So rest assured mortals, god didn’t smite lil Jonny because of his divine will and/or plan… Lil’ Jonny was smote because it was time for shit to happen…
