I just refuse to believe that the universe is nothing but blind and pitiless indifference.
I have posted before about how evil can exist in the first place.
But this is another great implication on it all.
Sure you can say there is no such thing as good and evil, but I am not sure where that leaves mankind.
I mean, if DNA is meaningless, what is the point?
Marilynne Robinson had it right, there are huge implications to this precept.
Enter Richard Dawkins, the master of belligerence. He says this: In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won’t find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind pitiless indifference. DNA neither knows nor cares. DNA just is. And we dance to its music.
