Below is an exceedingly rough and unpolished extract from something I am writing at the moment. It's basically using fiction as an excuse to discuss philosophy and the folly of seeking perfection. Let me know what you think. Would you read it? Maybe not these words specifically, but the idea? I hesitate to give too much away but it's not a criticism of religion, rather of being human, and shouldn't be taken too seriously.
"Oscar Berger wasn’t entirely sure whether it was the unfortunate accident involving the tram and icing sugar or whether it was the chimney that broke from his house and injured a neighbourhood cat that had finally steeled his resolve. Or maybe it was being retrenched from the newspaper during a period when there was more news about than ever before. They told him it was to consolidate their reporting interests but, to be honest, Oscar felt very much like he had been cast aside. This was, in fact, the exact opposite of consolidation and he knew as such because he had pilfered a tattered copy of his style guide which would be of approximately zero further use to him.
Everything had been ruined. Certainly the cat would never look at a chimney the same way. And so it was there, beneath the imperfections of a jacaranda tree that had mistakenly grown sideways, that Oscar decided to put all of his concerns into one stern letter, seal it and then hand deliver it to God himself. He would sit him down for a long, severe chat and respectfully inform him that there had been some mistakes.
Some oversights. Of course, they could all be redressed with some proactive mediation and possibly a new chimney. Writing the letter was the easy part (and very satisfying being able to vent about the state of roads even though it was a request more appropriately directed to his local government authority and not God) but finding the apparently Almighty was a whole other battle of wits and he hadn’t the faintest idea where to begin.
So he began on Albert Street, where shop owners once reported seeing the face of God (or a very convincing stunt double) in a particularly delicious pudding."
