If I Were to Believe in God

Posted by Nate

If I were to believe in God

Jews are killed for being Jews

Anne Frank

The tragic fate of the chosen people

Chosen for what?

People who gave the world Christ and Spinoza

Freud and Einstein

Exiled from Rome and Alexandria

From Spain and Germany

From Russia and Argentina

What are  the Jews chosen for?

They lifted countries that accepted them

Jew contributed enormously to humanity

Albert Einstein

Lifted from barbarism, from ignorance

Jews brought to people science and philosophy

Industry and commerce, music, arts and literature

And always, every time in return, the Jews were hated

Murders, persecution and expulsion followed.

The “chosen” people punished by envy, greed and ignorance

Punished by the same people who greatly benefited from the Jews

Blood thirsty mobs rejoicing mindlessly

Pogroms and Kristalnacht. Mass graves and concentration camps

Jewish fate

An ancient tribe

If I would believe in God I would ask: what are we chosen for?

God, we have done our best to follow your teachings.

Is this what we deserve?

Is this the gratitude we earned from the omnipotent?

Exile, oppression and death?

Is that our reward for trying to make the World a better place?

If I would believe in God I would say: we are not asking for rewards from you, God

Victory day and the Holocaust

Holocaust and children

Just please let us be.

Are we being punished for giving the world Einstein, Niels Bohr and Wolfgang Pauli?

And then I thought that we, the Jews, are being used

Used like a dispensable tool. Used and discarded.

If I would believe in God I would say that we, the Jews, are just useful disposable tools in God's hands.

And God keeps our numbers low

Too many Jews are not needed for God's purpose.

There cannot be too many chosen people.

Just a bare minimum to fit into God's grand design.

And yet we, the Jews, are proud to be the tools

Proud to be the “chosen” people.

Yes, I am proud of my people, proud to be a Jew

But not because we are “chosen”

I am proud of my people for their accomplishment and will to survive despite being the “chosen” people

Six Million perished in the Holocaust.

One third of us “chosen” people perished, just variables of the “grand design”

A plan we mere mortals cannot comprehend.

So why should we blindly believe in you, the merciful omnipotent God?

Jews, the chosen people are being slaughtered while praising God.

The all-merciful

Jews-a useful tool, dispensable. Just a tool.

A tool used and then discarded by the cold, inhumane executioner of a grand scheme.

Lives, families' hopes destroyed

Oh merciful God

You chose the Jews

We, the Jews, are the chosen people

Just variables, inexpensive dependable and disposable

I do not believe in this cold, calculating God.

I do not know if there is a vast intelligence, orders of magnitude more powerful than our meager brains

I am just a mere mortal, a small ripple in the ocean of life

This intelligence would operate by rules where all civilizations are just variables in the Universal Game.

There would be no morals, no good or evil

No compassion, love or hate

Just immense (by our measure) play and movement

I do not know to what end, why the Universe exists

But we humans, including Jews, appeared and will be gone in the next Universal instant

Just a variable in a process we cannot comprehend

And that makes more sense to me
