God’s Divine Plan for Transportation and Pharmaceuticals

This afternoon, I went to the airport 2 hours early to make time for security checks, sat on the airplane for 30 minutes before takeoff, flew for an hour and a half, and waited for another half hour for my baggage before driving 45 minutes to get to my final destination.

Total travel time: 5 hours, 15 minutes

Estimated driving time to the same destination: 6 hours, 30 minutes

Ticket cost: $280

Purpose of trip: Make a presentation about a project that has already been canceled

Today, the question “What’s it all about?” seems presumptuous.

Fundamentalists say, “It’s all part of God’s plan.” I take note of the fact that the plan they attribute to God has as its ultimate objective the annihilation of all humanity through a global holy war.

Is pointless air travel supposed to be part of this plan? Does that mean that Satan promotes a more efficient and user-friendly national transportation system?

I wonder how God’s plans and Satan’s plans regarding Armageddon affect their positions about prescription drug coverage through Medicare. Maybe I ought to ask a theologian for guidance on this one.
