Huckleberries Online

A note from Dave Tolle

I can understand geopolitical wars. They are the works of humans and their ideals. Humans are really, really dumb when compared to a God. I cannot understand religious wars. Allah and the Lord are renown as wise and compassionate types. Would either of them be at the forefront of today's fighting or in the war rooms deciding when and whom to kill? Are they not humble enough to give up a temple or a piece of land to keep their human flocks at peace? Do they not see the tragedy of dead children? Are they to blame for all this misery and anguish? I don't think so. It's people who won't allow their Gods to do the work or make the concessions to keep the peace. Near sighted, small minded, selfish, stupid 21st century religious zealots from all sects are fueling this ugliness. Humans have progressed quite a bit since the frameworks of these religions were founded but they're still dumb enough to wholesale slaughter one another despite the basic tenants of these religions invoking the name of their incredibly smart and peace loving Gods. Guess its time for these Gods to send this planet another offspring to set things right or just erase the board and start all over.
