He may have also wept because God wanted white people to claim ownership of what he was perfectly willing to share. God is a product of man's oversized brain that needs to be able to explain the machinations of the universe. It's an idea that is thousands of years old, and the only idea that old that hasn't been discarded in the face of new information. It's the one area where we have not, as a whole, yet evolved. The universe is composed of two things: energy and empty space, and energy prefers conditions that sustain it. That's really as deep as it gets and anything else is just illusion. What is the source of this energy? We'll probably never know, and until we are comfortable with not knowing we will continue to attempt to ascribe those things we don't understand to a benevolent higher power. The higher power is energy, but it has no vested interest in what we do beyond maintaining itself. What kind of God would allow, if not create, mental illness? Religion offers the illusion of certainty and identity in the name of control. For some, that may be a fair trade off, but not for me.
