To my way of thinking, this is a very reasonable approach. I do
believe that someone/thing created this universe. Whether or not, that being is wholly interested in each of our individual lives, I have no idea. I suspect I have enjoyed a certain amount of 'divine providence' in my life, and I'm grateful for it. I'm grateful just for existence itself. Just this opportunity to dance around, breathe in the air, and eat the sandwiches, is enough to make me appreciate what we have here.
I don't believe that any man, however, has ever written down the 'word of God'. I just don't. I simply don't think this God fellow operates that way. I don't think we're all damned without believing in certain comic books or otherwise. I just think we're here to grow. To learn. To love. The only real prayer I ever cry out to God for is that of an existence past this one. Reunion with those long lost, of course. And Peace. Because really, that's all any of us want anyway. A bunch of unscrupulous people took advantage of that natural longing in all of us and really, gave us our first governments. And there, we pissed away Peace.
In any event, I believe that God is self-evident. I believe that all we need to know about him is all around us, not in words, but works. God takes long walks with me and my dog. God pushes waves up softly on the shore. And God flashed that divine spark that eventually led to us, here, to contemplate the 'meaning' (lol) of it all. Personally, I like Speed Levitch's approach, that we're here to "experience exhilarating alienation". However the rest plays out, I intend to enjoy the sunsets, help out when I can, smoke a little weed, and have a heck of a ride.
And while I'm at it, I'll shoot the Big Guy a little Thank You now and again.
