I just saw THE best explanation of God and Death. I was watching an episode of Southpark. One of the kids, Stan, was speaking to Chef and he asked "Why does god let this happen?"
"Well, Stan, because god is still pissed about something that happened a long time ago and he just can’t seem to let it go. So, he does stuff like this to make us sad, just to remind us of it. You see, Stan, our tears are the reason. Our tears are what makes God strong."
I know it’s a comedy show, but this was so good. That’s probably why I like the show so much. There isn’t a subject that they won’t touch.
