Being thankful to a god or any of its sidekicks is always baffling fo me. I am always thankful to my good friends, because they always help me when I am in distress. I am thankful to my doctors, because they help me live a healthier life. I am thankful to my teachers, because they thought me how to read. God did not give me anything that I need. I did not exist. I was fine. He gave me a life with financial difficulties, health problems, an environment riddled with wars and I know for a fact that I have it much better than most. What is there to be thankful about, I wonder.
If anything , he should be thankful as we brought some joy to his lonely life. He should work much harder to please us.
