avoiding confusion

A simple formula for avoiding confusion is to never let yourself get befuddled by an unclear understanding of what you are mixed up about.

God vs. Free Will

Many people I've talked to about God believe that God knows everything- past, present, and future. They also claim that God's knowledge is "perfect". Given these two "facts" about God, then it must be the case that either a) free will (i.e. freedom of choice) is an illusion, or b) God (with these qualities) can't exist.

Entropy

Maybe life is all about reducing entropy through the application of energy? It takes energy to maintain order. If you don't mow your lawn, it becomes overgrown. If you don't maintain your car, it will break down. If you don't download the latest updates, your computer will contract a virus. If you don't put effort into your relationships, they will fall apart.

Superman to the rescue...

Got married 18 months ago. My third marriage, and this time to someone who was chronically ill. Why would I choose to marry someone who was sick? I'm fucking Superman, that's why. Flying in to save the day... Turns out she wasn't *really* sick. She was addicted to pain killers... My wife is an addict, how humiliating...

Well, at least she is in rehab now. She's been there almost three weeks. Not sure if it's helping yet. Not sure if I care anymore. Our relationship has been injured by her lies and I don't know if it can survive.

Superman will fall from grace if he leaves her. Not sure he can survive such a fall.

Her fifteen year old is a druggie too. Why do some teenagers worship drugs? She and her friends think it is the coolest thing ever to get wasted. Stupid teenagers trying to win the respect of other stupid teenagers.
