I told you this would happen. Start a micro-blog with philosophy questions, fade them out, bring them back, and then there’s a flood of them. I think it’s philosophy. Or religion. Or something else. I don’t know, it’s late, I’m tired and I really cannot think straight. Or is it strait? Sorry, I’ve been watching The Bridge and I can’t get strait out of my head. Even though it’s not a strait and it’s never mentioned once. Hah. I’ve officially gone nuts. Right in time for my 100th.
Erm, well, I can’t really answer this without upsetting someone. That’s always the problem with the philosophical questions. I suppose one is entitled to their beliefs. If you want to believe that things happen for a reason, fine. If you don’t, fine. Like everything in life, there’s just as much evidence supporting one side of the coin as there is supporting the other. And by that, I mean that we can’t conclusively prove anything. Proof is a null word. How do we know what’s real? We can’t. We just live life on a wave of crusty disappointment and the occasional spread of sunshine.
Me? Well, I don’t know. Maybe it does, maybe it doesn’t. I think we think too much about life. Too much about where we came from and where we are going. Too much about fate and destiny. We only live life once, why bother to live it wondering why we’re living it? Personally, I don’t care if everything happens for a reason. My belief is that it simply doesn’t matter.
But that’s just me. What about you, readers? Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
