    Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

      Because there is no God. Only the good die young.

      That's just life, nature, and human behavior.
      Some people do bad things to others.
      But bad things happen to everyone at some time or other.
      Maybe less to "good" people because they're more careful about things they do, and they try not to engage in risky behavior.
      The Bible says it rains on the just and the unjust.
      There are accidents, some of which are human error and some can be attributed to faulty vehicles,  some are natural conditions like slick roads etc., or to weather conditions; some people are killed by wild animals and snakes and etc.
      And natural catastrophes like floods and storms.
      And humanity is subject to deterioration physically since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden;  we all have an "expiration date" so-to-speak,  so we get diseases and etc;  and even if we never get a disease,  our bodies will still die at some point;  we're not gonna live forever (at least, not in this earthly life).

      All consistent with the Bible's words about the Creator and the created.

        I think I can agree with what you have said.

      No bad things happen, its only you perceiving it as bad makes it bad unto you.

      A change of perspective will allow you to see this world as perfect, exactly as it is.

        Nonsense.  A child sick and dying a painful meaningless death is a bad thing.

          To ascribe meaninglessness to a sick dying child is indeed a bad thing, but only to the one who persist in doing such a thing, and by this he inherits his own damnation.

            Didn't you just say "No bad things happen, its only you perceiving it as bad makes it bad unto you." You just ascribe meaninglessness to a sick dying child and then say it's indeed a bad thing. I think?



            But that was you?

              Don't get your panties in a bunch....

              Me agreeing with your perspective does not mean I share it.

              It means (if you were to re-read)  that since you believe it, I must accept that do believe it  and it is the freedom I must allow unto you as a fellow man.

              For you merely by you believing it, makes it valid unto yourself, which includes its consequences.

              As it is said, the man reaps whatsoever he sows, and if you sow evil (bad) as in thinking that this or that is evil, you shall reap the same.

              But then again, you do not lower yourself to accept these nonsensical ideas.
              So this is merely a vain effort of an explanation unto you.

                All I can get out of that is that you don't think a child dying a painful unnecessary death is a bad thing because you don't want bad things to happen to you. Is that correct?

                  No you not right....but you are allowed to believe it....

                  Bad things dont happen... but that beneath you understanding.

                    I'm trying to understand you here and you are making it difficult by talking in codes.

                    Are you saying a child dying an unnecessary death not a bad thing?

            So you think a baby dying in agony is not a bad thing? The child should not feel it is bad to be in agony and the parents should not think it is bad that their child dies?

            That is an interesting perspective.

              Interesting is a very polite way of wording it.

      The premise is flawed.

    Because there are bad people, because human beings are prone to certain diseases, and because luck isn't with some people.

    All consistent with no God.
