Dear Richard:
 
You talk of "Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists," etc.,
as though they were real people. I thought they are all illusions?
And you yourself are an illusion to yourself?  How Great must
be the Creator of such an illusion that even makes you believe
(at least at times such as this) it is may even be REAL?  Perhaps
this illusion Creator is actually revealing Himself to a Few of His
creatures now, and more later, and finally all, and that there is
a destiny that makes perfect sense. You look at the stupidity of
all religions and conclude that if there is a God He would have to
be likewise stupid, or worse: evil. What if there is a perfectly good
reason for stupidity and evil that you have not as yet comprehended?
What if God is such a Genius that He really is using the stupid people
of this world to confound the mighty (I Cor. 1:27)?  What if God is
like this, and not at all like what wise men think God would HAVE
to be like in order to "BE God"?  What if we have a sense of humor
because GOD HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR, and people like you,
Richard, are the butt of God's joke?  We'll all have a good laugh and
be glad that God is as He is, and not as wise men think He should be.
God be with you in your quest for Truth,
Ray
