Dead Dog Cat

more musings

So, continuing with pondering that CD lecture series, he makes the point that the Greeks felt that how or what an individual behaves or does has no bearing on how their life will be; that it is all in the hands of the gods, and that they are capricious and malicious and petty. More modern viewpoints are that who and what you are and do aid in making you way in the world, or in the world to come.

I'm not sure.

Isn't that curious.

It falls back on that old question, why do bad things happen to good people?
