Coelacanth: Here's Chris Moon doing his thing Link (new window)
The 18-year-old frets over little things -- why didn't she play with them when they'd asked?Days before the accident, Carol told her tomboy sister Beth, 11, she'd teach her how to put on makeup "later."Well, later was too late, Carol said.The girls died April 14, 2007, en route to Concordia University for its "Gathering of Talents." Beth and Erin, 7, were to sing solos at the festival."I felt like they died because I pushed them away," Carol said. "I thought it was God's punishment."
ABQGOD: When I was 10, one of my mother's friends died in a car wreck; I wondered what would happen if I called her number. The number was disconnected of course, but then a minute or two later after hanging up, the phone rang. It was a bill collector asking to speak with my maternal grandfather ... who died 20 years earlier./csb

That sort of pain should not be mocked. However the guys with the "radio of the dead"Flamethrower... 4 1/2 seconds is all I want ...flamethrower
Mechanical_Madman: "A Wesleyan ghost hunt brings closure for family who lost two in rollover""I felt like they died because I pushed them away," Carol said. "I thought it was God's punishment."Do you have any idea how many people God will kill if you don't use your rollover minutes? Do you?!
Xanlexian: Midnight Star I want to know, I want to know.
buckler: You must have then been struck by a laser, digitizing you, and drawing you within the world of the computer, where programs are living entities, which live or die by the dictates of a malevolent overseeing program.
MacGabhain: There's a play I saw years ago that focuses on various people in the Anglican Church. Types, really, but very well-written for types. One of them is the young zealot priest. His parents died rather horribly when he was young -- house fire or nasty accident or something. He agonized over it for years until finally "realizing" that God took them to bring him to the Church.This is the big problem with the platitudes "everything happens for a reason" and "it's all according to God's plan". You have to realize that even if you believe in God and in a God who has a plan, some shiat still just happens. It's not "for a reason" that your kid dies or you can't have kids at all (well, probably not, anyway). It's not for some greater plan that you just got diagnosed with lymphatic cancer. Go ahead and find meaning. Go ahead and MAKE meaning. Go ahead and use the bad to make something good. But if you insist on blaming/crediting God for everything that happens, you're almost bound to find some way to make it all about God punishing or rewarding you.
