This week being online I have been reading so many things that just make me shake my head and wonder about people even more.
Sadly, a guy a know from high school, has a 13 year old daughter who they thought was cured of her cancer. I read yesterday it has returned. How terrible and sad. Yet EVERY person on her CaringBridge site mentioned praying for her, telling her to have faith in 'god', etc. And she has LOTS of followers. I mean thousands. Her family has quite a story and she is quite a fighter! She has raised so much money for other kids with cancer,etc. that her site has thousands of followers. I just don't understand how, when she fought SO hard, and seemed to win, when the cancer returns, the followers have MORE faith rather than less. Does Nobody think that if there was a 'god' that this is heartless and cruel? My heart breaks for her and her family, and if I thought there was a 'god' that let this happen again, I would curse he/she/it.
On another topic, I love to read forums/blogs, etc. on frugality. It's just a thing of mine, because I love having no debt and no mortgage, so that we can spend on things that are really important to us as a family (like vacations together.) Anyway, one lady mentioneed she is a cleaning-woman in an office-building at night, and she saw a dark, creepy, evil, 'ghost' scamper behind a huge plant while she was working. All of a sudden TONS of people on the site started-in with their personal ghost-sightings. Pages and pages on this thread. REALLY???????? How come I have never seen a ghost or any evidence of any 'god'? Is it that if you already believe this stuff your mind plays tricks on you and you believe it, and if you don't believe this stuff, nothing happens because you don't believe it anyway. One woman went on and on about a ghost in her sons bedroom that he talks to and is friends with, and that it was the woman that died in that bedroom and she watches over him. Someone even said too bad the woman couldn't let the 'ghost' babysit her son, because she'd get in trouble because not everyone would believe the ghost was watching over him. I just don't get it...
