Is our world perfect? NO, too much suffering. But a perfect being (God), if He wanted to, would have created a perfect world. So why did God create us and our imperfect world?
Here is what Cioran, the philosopher I am reading these days says:
“This world was created from God's fear of solitude. In other words, us, the creatures, have no other meaning but to distract the Creator. Poor clowns of the absolute, we forget that we live dramas for the boredom of a spectator, whose claps have never reached the ears of a mortal.”
And he does not stop here, the philosopher is angrier and angrier:
“I am displeased with everything. If they made me God, I would immediately resign.”
Can truth exist without falsehood? No, something exists only in relation to something else, ... and if God created everything, He created the lies too, painting our lives with so much color.
“If the truth were not boring, science would have made God disappear long ago. But God as well as the saints is a way to escape the dull banality of truth.”
Here are some more quotes from Cioran:
“The more we are obsessed with God, the less innocent we are… Thus, God seldom finds himself in an innocent soul.”
… and guess what? Religion is more important for non-believers, because the believers have an easy task, they believe everything without questioning…
“From the cradle to the grave, each individual pay for the sin of not being God. That's why life is an uninterrupted religious crisis, superficial for believers, shattering for doubters.”
