Because without it we would not exist for long: pain is a biological mechanism to prevent us from dying or accidentally killing ourselves. It indicates where wounds are and alerts us that we need to take extra care of them.
Perhaps the world is much the same.
RobertCalifornia: TL thinks im black
RobertCalifornia: shes my homegurl
Hive: arent you
SpankyMcfly: wait... you arent?
thoughtlost: I am not really religious. I just like getting free stuff from churches.
Maybe pain really doesn't exist but we just choose to see things as painful? But that just brings up more questions, doesn't it? Like WHY we choose to see things as painful.
Are we back where we started?
That's true, but that's a learned response. We know to associate buzzer with food being done because we've observed it many times and there is generally not a significantly deleterious consequence for not responding correctly. On the other hand, if you don't attend to your gashed leg quickly, you will die. It has to be unpleasant because you don't get a second chance.
I guess I just see it as something that evolved to help us survive more than something that was intentionally inflicted upon us, so I don't feel too much despair over it. It sucks but it wasn't something engineered to make my life unbearable.
But this is exactly why pain needs not be implemented; if we didn't have to battle for survival, then all of this junk would be disposed. Instead, pain gives us the glory of prolonged suffering.
God created people to be relational. People chose to go astray and brought sin into the world due to their pride and selfishness. God created something perfect and we went and ruined it.
If God created perfection then why are we selfish and proud? Didn't God create us? Or did he create us to be selfish and proud and therefore what we have now is perfection, so God created suffering in the end anyway. We can't ruin something if we were always meant to be like this, and world was meant to be like this.
Anyway the above is why I don't believe religious nonsense. It's all just crap made up by some dude ages ago for whatever reason. Cant believe anyone still swallows it.
