Every so often I bemoan the poor design of human beings and wonder why a god would do such shoddy design work. I am speaking mainly of bodily functions, i.e., elimination and also female menstrual periods. Can you even imagine the nightmare these problems presented to the human race before indoor toilets and the invention of paper products? This is just mind-boggling to me and I cannot understand how a creator glossed over these design problems.

How were the incontinence needs of infants and old people accommodated in ancient times? It is a problem today (old people, specifically) but what about in ancient times? Of course these horrible, nasty tasks have always fallen to women.

Ugh. What a horrible design. I think there should be a massive recall.

Don't fret my friend...God works in mysterious ways so to speak...like, women being the punching bag of men!

Jokes aside...we shall see sooner or later the why of it all...won't we?

No we won't. There is no all-encompassing 'why'.

According to those who do not believe in the spiritual. Now the other side of the spectrum believe otherwise, yet both are adamant in their own premise...but in no way can each prove beyond the shadow of doubt, the hard evidence of being right...Hence the saying...to each his own...

At death's door, one "may" see the light at the end of the tunnel, while the other...just darkness and succumb to nothingness. (this is what I mean by knowing sooner or later.)

btw - I'm a free thinker who believes in "The Designer" of whose true attributes, the fallible mindset of men could not begin comprehend!

Peace!

What COULD a possible explanation be for the shoddy design of humans? And I am thinking of what people had to endure without running water or paper products . . . I can't think of why you would even want to live, under those circumstances.

Many humans are born with serious defects. Those who do not catch a variety of diseases.

Unless you've missed the whole point of life, we will all be recalled, sooner or later.

Some to everlasting life, some to eternal torment.

Nobody designed us...Most of what you call design flaws originate from our past when we walked on all fours...Our back and placement of our organs are meant for the four legged creature our ancestors once were.

That doesn't account for the sheer messiness of it all. I don't think other female animals bleed for up to seven days every month for years.

The whole thing is just not hygenic or attractive and I don't know why the species has continued on.

As to the "Hell Fire and Damnation" comment. Posh. That's just silly.
