Dear Mahavishnu Balakrishan,

I really enjoyed reading the article, thank you for writing it!

I think my biggest, I would even say unforgivable, peeve with god is childhood cancers. There are cancers that specifically TARGET children. If that is not the very definition of evil, I don’t know what is! When talking about science, that’s one thing, (there is no right or wrong in nature, just consequences) but if there is an intelligence behind that kind of malicious intent, that’s completely another.

Also, I liked how god just sort of waved aside the suffering family of a 40-year-old man. Yeah, that’s a tough break. Oh well, others have it worse. Buck up & stop feeling sorry for yourself! So the choices are either a mean, uncaring & powerful god or a limited loving, compassionate one. Hmmm…
