My friend is super religious. She’s fasting so that she could get better grades. She thinks that it really works. She’s the one who’s pulling all-nighters and studies till the break of dawn. Yet, she still thinks that she won’t receive good grades if she won’t fast. The thing that she’s fasting is her computer usage. She won’t do anything that involves using a computer. She won’t turn it on, update her social network and stuff. Sure, maybe you’d get good grades for not touching your computer. But the things is, thinking that good grades is a divine manifestation for not opening your Facebook account? Is God like stalking you on Facebook now or following you on Twitter? I can’t do anything against it. I mean, free will anyone? It still baffles and disturbs me though. It’s not because of my atheism that it bothers me, my common sense comes into play. My only question is; if God loves you, why do you need to say no to the things that you like?
