This isn’t an atheist blog, and your Curmudgeon doesn’t consider himself an atheist (although creationists like ol’ Hambo would disagree). Nevertheless, we regard theology as utterly irrelevant — more so than many other things that thrill uncountable millions, such as baseball, opera, and French cooking, but which mean nothing to us.
Why do we consider theology to be irrelevant? We have devised a flow chart to demonstrate our thinking. We did something similar but less ambitious last year — see Curmudgeon’s Creationist Flow Chart. What we’ve got today deals with a far more grandiose subject.
We doubt that we’re the first to reach our conclusion, and we’re certainly not the first to diagram such questions with a flow chart. If others have already done the same thing, good for them — it doesn’t surprise us that they’ve reached the right result. Regardless of one’s answers to our questions, the conclusion is the same — there’s no reason to worry about theology. That’s the meaning of our “No worries!” conclusions — one may always have things to worry about, but theology isn’t one of them.
And now, dear reader, in two separate sections because of the limits of our graphic program, we present The Curmudgeon’s Theology Flow Chart™. Take it slowly, one question at a time. Note that the positions of “Yes” and “No” are switched for the last question. You’ll see that our logic is undeniable. Here we go:
That should be self-explanatory, but a brief comment may be appropriate for the last question. If the supreme intelligence is benevolent and one happens to be Jack the Ripper or something similar, then there would be cause for worry; but that’s his problem, not yours.
