If God did create him he sure wasn't looking to give him a good life. If you believe God made him like this you have to believe he did it for a reason.
It's horrible, his life is cursed right from the start. This kind of stuff wouldn't happen if these countries had proper governments that made sure their citizens can't be exposed to the substances that cause this.
I know Strong Will is "made".
And you can always add exceptions. People can be strong willed no matter how **** the society behaves.
I see myself to be mentally strong, the world has been nasty to me, had been a victim of incessant bullying and had always been an involantary part of quarrels. But I took it into my mind not to have it a toll on my mental state.
I also never fell in peer pressure, never even smoked while the whole friend circle was into it, I praise myself for it.
I know that my case is water against that baby's oil (If you comprehend the phrase). I just hope he is born with the same quality as mine, which I say - Self Aware (I know you grammar nazis will kill me over this).

I don't know, but I take it you don't have just one eye on your head. And even if society has shunned you and made you feel bad about yourself, you don't seem like the person that has been called a monster. This kid is definitively going to be called a monster. So your water to his oil metaphor is adequate to explain the similarities or rather the lack of them.

Indeed. But who will teach him to not take them seriously? He'll be bullied from the very beginning of life.

*cough* Parents *cough*
Some people are born with this quality. One can always find a lotus in a pond of mud.
And if his parents or his guardians turn out to be drop dead losers and be a part on ruining his life (By joing the society in the evil deed), then its a pity.
Yes, and I am little afraid that it might actually turn out that way. I don't know where this kid has been born, but from what I've read in the article, it's a country governed by religious beliefs and if so, the parents might actually believe all this Dajjal nonsense. But for now the dice is still in the air and speculating about what number is going to turn out is rather pointless.
I do see religion as a very big blockade here. So if the family turns out to be orthodox, its gonna be hell for the poor baby.
But then the baby wouldn't survive, as it would be sacrificed before it matures.
^ This is what happens when religion and orthodox background shake hands. Stupid thoughts like "He is the devil" come into people's minds which result into sacrifices. I have seen this happening in most orthodox families through media. It really sucks that the world hasn't progressed as a whole.
