Have you ever been in a theatre, in a puppet or youth theatre? Think of it… what did you like most?

Most of the time, much is going on. Figures or actors disagree and agree, most of the time, they most solve problems, which keeps the audience in suspense.

Friedrich NIETZSCHE, a popular philosopher from Germany, has posed the question in the next to last century, why life includes so many evil for human beings. Why is there sickness, hunger, suffering, pain? Why aren’t there just happy events like the birth of a baby or lively parties? He was not the only one, who pondered on that.

Many philosophers asked themselves: “Why life is often so hard? Can there be a god? If God existed, why would he watch people suffering?”

Nietzsche’s answer was: “God is just to be understood as an artist god. He watches people like the audience watches a theatre. At the stage, there are many problems, entanglements, drama – otherwise it wouldn’t be interesting.”

What do you think of this explanation? Do you believe in God at all? Or in Allah? How do you think it comes that there is so much evil in the world?
