Have you ever heard the saying, “If you want proof of God, just make plans.”?
Has it ever occurred to anyone that, if there is a God – I won’t discuss the particulars of my religious nor political beliefs on this website – that He is saying the same thing. “If you want proof of Man, just make plans.”
We have free will to make choices. You can argue until the cows come home over how we gained that attribute but the fact remains we have free will.
And just look at what we’ve done with that free will. Every chance we get, we seem to use it to kill each other and excuse the behaviour and choices that of the few that are so destructive.
