A. Why bad things happen to good people is an old question. But we can only ask that question, if we believe in G-d. If we, and the world we live in, is only a statistical improbability that came about by some freak accident, without intelligent design or purpose behind all of existence, then we can’t ask these questions. Going by the G-dless theory, there can be no intrinsic or absolute meaning to life, just as absolute moral right and wrong are impossible. With G-d, some things defy meaning (I refuse to explain the Holocaust as a punishment – we don’t have G-d all figured out), but much of the rest fits into the picture. There’s a lot more to this issue, but for longer answers we’ve gotta talk.
