If not having the answers to the big questions is such a bad thing, like not knowing how life originated, why'd god give us a brain to figure things out with?

Brian is hilarious.

One of the comedy greats. The way he works with Stewie, especially in the early series, was very special.

God loves us, that's why he made Seth give us Brian.
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

We all make mistakes. Giving humans the brain we have has not worked out to well for life on Earth.

If there was one.

Well yes, but presumably religious folks don't believe that. So I was wondering why religious folks think their god gave us brains to figure alot of complicated stuff out but not the BIG stuff that they keep asking about. Just seems odd so I wanted their take on it.

It's like, the Bible says Thou Shalt Run 40 miles per hour. But then gave us the capacity to only run 39. Why would a loving god do that?

Nah.. Just passing it along.

Early on, proto-humans that mistook a snake for a stick or a lion for a tuft of dried grass were likely eaten.  The primate that jumped startled when catching a quick glimpse of a stick thinking it was a snake lived to tell the tale.. 

He was wrong.. His buddies laughed but he was alive and could pass along his snake sensing genes .

He also set the stage for innumerable practical jokes..



Humans became really really good at looking for patterns. 

Patterns in leaves.. patterns in clouds..   

Early on we figured out that it's better to assume that that big rock was a bear rather than assume that that bear was a big rock. 

Natural selection favored those who tended to believe that ALL patterns are real and potentially dangerous.

We came to believe that the world is forever filled with invisible specters who may mean to harm us.. if only we could identify their patterns we could be safe. 

That is the basis for religion.  The belief that through the proper ritual we could see that it's a malevolent spirit and not the wind.





Hint: .. It's the wind.
