Hey, look! A breakthrough in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Hoo.

Hope for peace in the Middle East looks more like a 50-year marathon of Groundhog Day to an atheist. Every three years. Every three years they play the same game and they sing the same song. And every time the process breaks down. And it's not that it fails, it fails the same way every single time. Somebody will invariably claim they're getting fucked out of something owed to them by god.

After 50 years of this movie whose ending never changes, maybe it's time for a pardigm shift. I'm not saying I have an answer. I'm just saying maybe it's time to consider the possibility that this is not what god had in mind.

Just putting it out there.
