I don't like this world a whole lot and if God created it, then I don't think I like God a whole lot either.
I don't believe in an entity "God" as a creator, but if one doesn't like something then there are really only two options: put up with it (complaining about it is optional) or attempt to make it better. I think the latter is the better option of the two.
Your theory is on a threadmill to nowhere. The dumb mindless cycle of rinse and repeat is never ending, fix a problem, make a problem, fix a problem, make a problem.
It's as though humans cannot exist without problems, they thrive on problems, and if they run out of problems, they'll just invent new ones. They are addicts to the buzz that is Relief from Grief ..Make a mess, Clean up the mess. Does it ever occur to them to get off this treadmill, or do they enjoy being hopelessly stuck in their own well carved out groove.
For me, personally, I see a way off the self carved grooves. The way out of this predicament... is to go back in. To just stand perfectly still in the nowhere, going nowhere, doing nothing, thinking nothing, being nothing. Try it, I have, it's the only better that is real.
The stupidist and dumbest choices people choose, is to think it's ok to invite the unborn to join with them in the game of trying to make better the mess they keep making, they do this so that when they eventually pop their clogs, there will be at least someone else to clean up after they have gone. It'll be ok to make a problem and a mess, because there will always be someone else willing to clean up their mess. For what choice did they have. They were forced into this mess.
Someones got to fix the broken, make it all better, clean up the mess others have left behind. ..Yes, Human behavior is absolutely disgusting, it's totally insane. Are the unborn just expected to put up with the world in which they are born into, who never had the voice to consent to it, or agree to make it better.
Humans are dumb. Only dumb people play the life is going to get better game. Do you honestly believe that life can ever be better.
Doesn't seem to be working does it. Oh yeah, that's because it isn't. But we can always wishfully pretend it can, we can always pretend it's working out for the good, when we all know deep down that we are just pushing that rolling rock up a very steep hill. Acceptance is the key. Resistance is futile.
