G-d Dialogue

Internal dialogue while bringing cereal back to my desk.

ME: I already have a spoon at my desk! Thank G-d I remembered to leave it there before.
ME (smarmy): You know, it really isn't G-d's fault. You kinda got that one on your own.
ME: Yeah, but people are always blaming G-d for stupid things when they go down, and it isn't really G-d's fault at all; it's their own. So why not thank G-d for something that isn't necessarily G-d's direct doing for a change?
ME: Ah, but G-d created the universe and everything in it, and therefore, nothing that happens is an accident. So one way or another, G-d really manipulated you to leave a clean spoon at your desk earlier...right?
ME (undeterred): Thank G-d there was soy milk in the refrigerator. I hate it when they're all out.


(Well, the end of the dialogue. The beginning of my very late breakfast.)

Every end is really a beginning. Or something.

Your comment makes me think of that section at the beginning of Mostly Harmless by Douglas Adams (which, weirdly enough, I can only find on Conservapedia: http://www.conservapedia.com/Debate:Why_is_there_something_rather_than_nothing%3F)
