Letter to the Atlanta Journal/Constitution of 1/13/02 to convey the notion of a morally acceptable distribution of happiness.
The point of human existence is to understand what it is that God must contend with, i.e., freely acting beings, who have a capacity to act naturally in accordance with selfish desires, or also to act morally in accordance with laws respecting all equally, including therefore also lunatics and murderers. Such respect is no mean trick, and may be mastered only by God. A morally acceptable standard for the equitable distribution of happiness would be for God to allow people after death to live again and then eternally with others of a like spirit, i.e., the selfish/evil with their kind, and the communal/good with their kind. To each his own! By the way: as I justified in an earlier letter published here (12/28/01), if there is a moral judgment, as I expect, then I expect to see Hitler, like a living Don Quixote, with the communal and bin Laden with the selfish. [But I also expect to be surprised regarding my expectations. ;) ]
