If there’s no god, why show respect for pain that’s felt by an insect, for doesn’t that in part deflect from order’s natural select which did from soup somehow infect, cajole or otherwise confect life as we know it, and inject complexity, until bedecked, upon the scene comes Man, erect? A pain-free god’s what you expect? It seems creation's architect is oft accused by means direct (an argument they resurrect), of child abuse, pain and neglect, a charge to which I must object. Though I'm not needed to protect, still neither shall this go unchecked. Although I mean no disrespect, I think when one is circumspect, allows not logic to defect, to fancy, does not genuflect, and stops carefully to reflect, they, too, will see the disconnect. For when they do, I do suspect, unwittingly, Godhead bisect (it's rare, if I may interject, that they might attempt to trisect), considering not, in effect, that though there are three intellects, their wills, communal, intersect, their overlap complete, correct. Now you may ask what this affects, but what it means is all aspects of common will and dialect, are locked in a direct connect, such that when one of them elects to carry out a plan perfect, none are diminished, none henpecked, nor subject to a misdirect, nor actions that might disaffect, nor any sovereign state rejects (hence child abuse notions are wrecked). I have the scriptures to inspect; in these I cannot recollect attempts from truth to redirect, so I eject as incorrect the notion that God did elect to avoid pain, to disinfect, but rather, chose pain to connect with life, with us, and with respect, through Christ, and not in retrospect.

Wow...I give up! But this is quite a challenge. Jeff, how long did it take you to compose this? It's delightfully interesting, readable, and thought-provoking all at the same time!

Why do you give up? Frances said she got lost when I read it.
