I like order (even though you would not guess it to see my desk). I like answers that make sense.

Why do bad things happen to good people?

That’s a question that came up again yesterday. Randomness is the answer that works for me. Not everything is as logical, as controllable, or predictable as we want.

God created the universe and, it seems to me, he turned over the physical aspects of his creation to the created. This hands-off policy means that bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people and we don’t get to put God into some elaborate cause and effect equation.
