Thinx 76: Thankfulness

For their mother has played the whore; she who conceived them has acted shamefully. For she said, "I will go after my lovers, who give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink."


A friend gave me a toasted cheese sandwich. I thanked him and I also gave thanks to God for it. He said he didn't think God had much to do with it. I said, "Who invented wheat? Who invented cows? Who invented milk? ... In Him we live and move and have our being."

How can one not be thankful? Yet a practical atheism, that acknowledges God's existence but denies aspects of his nature, lives on.
