A life full of joy is not perfect. Why? Because its not complete. Not exhaustive. Without sorrow, hate, jealousy and failure, love, beauty, joy or success have no meaning whatsoever. This is what life comprises of. If we apply the same concept about completeness to everything else, is it valid?
Say, for example, if the universe is complete it should have both the birth and death of stars. Heavenly bodies should be going away from each other and also towards each other. If science is complete then it should account for both the certain & the uncertain.
If philosophy is complete then it should constitute in it both the sane and insane.
Taking this foolishness (Hey! Humans also have both intelligence and stupidity) further. If God is perfect, complete and everything we say about it (I prefer calling God it) then it should constitute both the dark and the bright. If God is alone he will have to be both good and bad, yin-yang or whatever terminology you want to use.
But (I know.. my posts always have a but).
But a bad God!! Isn’t it better to have a Satan. But they do not neutralise each other. Balanced is not maintained you see. So there ought to be a greater evil than a measly Satan.
Just a thought [:)].
