Country songs with titles so bizarre they can't possibly be real... or can they?
"but i realized something that so many people never step back and realize.. why don't you question science? evolution? every theory that you "believe," what makes them true besides what people have told you? studies, facts, yeah, i believe in that. but i also see flaws in everything that is man made. go ahead and google evolution and the theory of an intelligent designer.. in the science world, they've come to realize that their "facts" about evolution are based on more opinions than evidence."
There's just so much misunderstanding of science vs belief vs religion here, it is frankly staggering.
nowadays, i still love the song. but i've come to realize the blindness of calling god an a--hole. seriously. i used to be on the border of belief, i used to question everything, i used to want to take books and science and throw them in my pastors face..
but i realized something that so many people never step back and realize.. why don't you question science? evolution? every theory that you "believe," what makes them true besides what people have told you? studies, facts, yeah, i believe in that. but i also see flaws in everything that is man made. go ahead and google evolution and the theory of an intelligent designer.. in the science world, they've come to realize that their "facts" about evolution are based on more opinions than evidence.
but anyways, my response is mainly this - "I mean if god is infallible, how come the humans he created were flawed, and sinned? Also, if god is so caring, how can he sit back and watch all the anger, hatred, and violence. How can he take those we love in an instant?" - Mike of West Bend, WI
my answer - my imperfect, flawed answer - is that god gave us free will.. it isn't god that causes anger, hatred, and violence, that is US. that is you, that is me. if everything was perfect and we had no free will, then life would be meaningless, we'd simply be never changing parts in a puzzle.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you - mathew 7:7
if you don't seek out god, you won't find god.
Isaac says he doesnt like someone glamourising something as destructive as alcoholism. "yeah i know hes a pretty good read
Doesnt mean there arnt similarities in the two characters, obviously they both have dabbled in plenty of chemicals, but in the song "the good times are killing me" Isaac explains some of the contradictions of using drugs.
If the true god is the god of the Christians, then god probably hates me. Luckily for me, I don't believe that any one religion/god is correct.
-It is an amazing song and everyone should hear it.
Bukowski was a drunk, he was always drunk and he wanted to die. And if every night turns out to be a little bit more like Bukowski.. that means he turns out all little more drunk and depressed, and in your own world, where you don't care about anything other than yourself..and you don't have to. Everything I have read by Bukowski has always been soley about him. It is critizing religion but he is not coming out and saying he hates god. Also, Marc, Bukowski's writing is so much more than I've got a job..ect. Its about the loss sure but..theres so much more to him than that.
Also,anyone else wonder about the reacurring theme of wedding cake?
Its a good song.
