Why is it when people talk about god and what-not, they always sound like serial killers and maniacs? I was looking at this girl who has a talent for art, she is only 10 so her natural ability is impressive. She has a patience for detail in her work that most 10 year olds don't have however, she claims that god gave her that ability so that she can impress the world with her drawings, or something equally mental.
You can watch the terrifying thing here: Link

It seems weird how god ignores pressing issues like suffering and focuses his attention on teaching a ten year old girl how to draw and paint. The whole thing reeks of delusion. I don't even like looking into her eyes, she seems dead inside and I bet she would be well boring to talk to. Oh, she has painted those eyes well, it's a shame she is completely insane.

I have submitted my intelligence to an extent where I can accept that people may like to believe in god because it helps them deal with the panic of death but, teaching you how to paint? **** off.

"If you talk to God, you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic." -House

"I don't like the word prodigy at all. To me prodigy sounds like a person who was 'gifted' all these things rather than a person who earned all these talents by hard training." -Lee Young-Ho

V.I.P.
Allow me to point out the following train of thought:

People with talents usually use them to make other people happy.

Art is another medium with which we can make others happy.

God wants people to be happy.

God gives girl artistic gift.

Girl uses God-given gift to make others happy.

Gibber-jabber.

She doesn't make me happy, she makes me sad in fact.

Also, god had nothing to do with my artistic ability since I learned the majority of my technique from practice and understanding.

Also again, if god wants everyone to be happy, why is half the world's population either depressed or slowly dying?

If you want me to be happy god, cure those pesky diseases you hand out to everyone, I don't give a **** about a painting a little girl did by comparison.

I was listening to the radio the other day and this lady attributed the new years eve full moon to divine intervention.

Not to Yahweh's intervention. But to Mani.

****ing skalds.

She's ten. When I was ten I still thought I could grow up to be a tree.

"If you help them too much, they learn to rely on you and do nothing for themselves. But if you do nothing, they stop believing in you all together." That was a quote from Futurama. The second half doesn't really apply, but it still makes a good point.

And by the way, pyschotic people and religious people sound similar because they're both so passionate.
