maybe god did get mad and thats why we exist in this state.

A fact is only something that has yet to be disproven
and who's to say everything is not just the biggest coincedence ever.
In an infinite existance anything is possible. smiley - smiley
everything is only theory to greater or lesser degrees of certainty,
from a given perspective and considering the available "facts".

Sophies world is great for giving an introduction to philosophical ideas and setting the mind thinking in different ways.
It was obviously never intended as the definitive guide to all philosophy.
