I get tired of blessings where God is thanked when it’s obvious the imaginary sky deity did nothing–or if he did, he let the natural disaster happen for his own glory in the aftermath (which is a pretty shallow thing to do). This year, let’s remember our fellow humans. The ones that put themselves in the line of fire, the ones that saved our asses from nature and the ones that find new ways to prevent tragedy when the inevitable storms strike. We are truly blessed by the mere luck of being born in a time period with so many innovations and life-saving techniques. Here’s to religion and superstition NOT impeding human efforts to make all our lives better.
