I had originally wanted to take some time looking into the claims made my Stephen Fry in his recent interview on the meaning of life made famous in a shorter viral video. In it he describes what he would say to God and most of it pertains to the presence of suffering in the world and how he could never worship such a God. I recorded a short video examining some of Fry’s claims although I’m the first to admit I haven’t addressed some of the more challenging aspects, simply because I had been in a rush because my daughters been sick.
Here’s my own short video (done in a rush!)
Let me know your thoughts.
I’ll look at responding to the tougher aspects of his claims next time, e.g. how can we worship a God who allows the presence of suffering etc. Fry says nothing new, but he is saying the sort of thing, albeit more eloquently that most people bring up when it come to objecting to God’s existence.
