Hey Dudes,

Nice post, Bikerdude; I like what Harris has to say -- his way of talking about "the problem of evil" -as some philosopher types call it- really hits home with me. That particular issue is what led me away from conventional religious belief back in high school.

What's the Dudeist position on the problem of evil? Well, to my mind, it begins with the realization that sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear well he eats you. There's no way to know why one minute you're rolling strikes and the next you're rolling gutters. Or why some of us roll into the semis, while others of us end up in a Folgers can before our time, like so many men... Life unravels as it does, and the Dude doesn't ask "Why me?" or "Why Donny?," he doesn't try to invoke metaphysical explanations, he just finds a way to abide.

And by abiding, the Dude and all Dudes inject a little bit of morality into a world that can otherwise be as dark as a steer's tookus on a moonless night. By choosing the path of the limber over the path of the uptight, we Dudeists find meaning and purpose.

Thoughts, Dudes?

The clouds above us come together and disperse;
The breeze in the courtyard departs and returns.
Life is like that, so why not relax?
Who can keep us from celebrating?

Wow, never knew I was a "nihilistic, hater-atheist".  Didn't even know I was an atheist, and I know I never said one way or the other on this forum.

Um - huh?  Where does that accusation come from dude?  Some of the people here can't even find reverse on a Soviet tank...

Thankee, man.  I'm sure some of what I wrote was inspired by others (the Abide Guide, dudeism.com, etc.)-- but, you know man, it's a shared thing anyway.
