The universe is neither cruel nor benevolent. It is absolutely indifferent and devoid of emotion.  Some living things have emotions and can be cruel or benevolent.

You don’t have to be smart to feel pain or pleasure, but you will have to be alive in order to die. To the universe it’s just change from one state to another state.

The point is, if there is a god, is he indifferent to and devoid of emotion? If so, how can anyone believe he is benevolent? My argumant is not with people who don’t believe in god, it’s with people who do and who also claim their god is benevolent.

This is my evolution now… 

On some level, we all have the intelligence to manifest our love for ourselves as our reality, each of us, this is the beauty of life.

Interpret it as you will.
