Quote: Whatever your religious persuasion, if you believe that the universe is governed by benign forces, at some point you have to explain why there is so much suffering, misfortune and misery in the world. — Julian Baggini (1968-) English philosopher

Comment: Since every human is imperfect, the only truly benign dictators are God and his Son.
