On suffering and god

[….]since the order of the world is shaped by death, mightn’t it be better for god if we refuse to believe in him and struggle with all our might against death, without raising our eyes toward the heaven where he sits in silence.

    As death is inevitable, why not make the journey towards it as pleasant as possible for everyone? For myself, it’s not so much a struggle against death (although I’m going to go kicking and screaming), but a struggle to help humankind realise that we shouldn’t be looking forward to a “heavenly” afterlife but to help create a better life for all now.
