Life is exciting, thrilling, fun, dangerous, heartwarming and heartbreaking... life is free will and what you make of it.
Many people ask why God didn't make everybody puppets and everything unchallenging and non competitive and there were no wolves to hunt the deer so the deer would all be happy...
but people like wolves... don't we?
What is confusing is just why would nature ever evolve life if there weren't this seemingly harsh competition aspect? Evolution makes for original sin. Lust, greed, envy, jealousy, anger, aggression and all the rest of those bad things that chimps do.
Chimps have original sin too. Who knew?
We may not like the way things go in this short often brutish life but gee wiz how we do try our damnedest to keep at it as long as possible ...don't we? If it were all that bad then why do we hate the idea of leaving this life and try to live as long as possible?
In my opinion God did a pretty good job at creating life. We just do a lousy job at living it.
