Nor do I believe that this same invisible force is just “sitting” up there watching every single person on this planet and playing and toying with us (mankind) and our lives daily as if we were puppets. And on the opposite side, I do not believe this invisible force “plans” out every single thing that will happen to use before we are even born. I have always believe that if something does not make sense it usually is not true and well, that just does not make any sense to me at all. You say that as a result of what you have called “abandonment” there are four basic implications on philosophy. First being that because there is no God there is then no creator or “maker” of man.
