Why Accidents?

You're living in an "accidental" age!
It's a time of BELIEF in accidents — PLANNED accidents, accidental lives, and accidental deaths!
Here's all about accidents — and how to avoid them!


YOU PROBABLY work where you do by accident. Probably, you "just happened" to be living where you are. And did you marry by accident? Was your birth itself an accident?

Surprising as it seems, accidents seem to characterize not only our lives — but the very age in which we live!


Why World Believes in Accidents

For instance, did you know the most "intellectual" belief today concerning the existence of our world, and the universe itself is the firm faith (based on empty guesses) in an accident?

The universe came to be BY ACCIDENT, say the evolutionists. The world "just happened" to be here, all by a rather fortuitous accident. Life, they say with faith in the careless, the chaotic, the happenstance, began upon our earth by accident!

And even those who profess belief in the religion of Christianity base their belief on an accident! They talk of the "fall" of man! And isn't a fall an accident?

But DID you come to be — accidentally? Is life only a serious collision? A bad fall? A helpless sinking into a morass?

The way many millions are living it, it would seem so.


Why Isn't Nature Accidental?

If everything that is, everything that exists, is only accidental, then, of course, there is no God.

And if our lives are only a chance occurrence, after millions of eons of almost unbelievable mishaps, accidents, violent explosions, and chance meetings between lovesick amoebae of the opposite sex (!), then, of course, mankind is left free to live his life experimentally, accidentally!

Yes, there is GREAT FAITH in accidents, today.

The really "educated" man of this modern society clings tenaciously to his accidental philosophy of accidents and happenstance.

He believes in accidental art — an insane, bearded creature flinging horrendous globs of paint in a frenzy of rage at a helpless canvas — and letting the goo dry. This terrible waste of energy and paint and canvas is then viewed with awe by the "critics" who apparently have discovered some amazing new way to evaluate accidents.

Today, paint easels, pallets, bits of mangled steel and boards find their way into the art galleries.

The "educated" man of today believes in accidental music. A group of "beat" musicians get together, and, after jolts or doses of whatever stimulant, repressive, or noxious mixture of barbiturates and smoke that is required to send them reeling drunkenly into the accidental off-beats called modern jazz — new "songs" are born. Or miscarried.

Millions believe those who "have it made" in life probably got their wealth by accident. Perhaps the proverbial rich uncle died, leaving them a fortune. Or they somehow won it all in the Irish sweepstakes, on a TV quiz show, or just found it in the street.

So keen is the lust for accidental money tumbling into people's laps that a Negro janitor in Los Angeles, who, when he found a huge sum of money which had tumbled from a Brink's truck, and turned the money back to its rightful owners, was literally driven from his community by his neighbors.

They were FURIOUS because the accident had occurred to Him, instead of them. They would have reasoned, "finders keepers, losers weepers."

Today, games of chance are being seriously considered as methods to enrich state treasuries.

The desire for the sudden wealth of an accidental turn of the dice, a chance spin of the wheel, a fortuitous flip of the cards has become a great swelling lust, eating at the vitals of multiple millions.

"Maybe," "if only," "what if?" and "perhaps" — these are the slogans of the believer in accidents.

Is it then surprising they are the words used most frequently by anti-God evolutionists in fake support of their guesswork called theories?

If the great faith in accidents is true, why is it there is no proof? Why is it nature itself disproves it?

Look at the intricacy of nature around you. Everything you see is complex, harmonious, perfectly balanced — except for man's depredations and mistakes which throw nature out of proper balance from time to time.

Is the exact distance of our earth from the sun — just the EXACT distance necessary to give heat and light, and in just the proper amounts — an accident? Or was it planned? If the moon were a little closer, our tides would daily sweep the continents, making the world uninhabitable for any land-dwelling creatures. If the earth were further from the sun, our temperature would be below freezing, and the earth a solid ice cap. A little closer, and everything upon it would burn to a crisp.

Is it just accident that our mantle of air shields us from the rays of the sun; protects us from the daily bombardment of millions of astral bodies from space; gives us air to breathe, weather for crops, our transportation; our very lives? Is it only accident?

Was it only a fortunate mistake that the sea is of the exact depth, size, and chemical make-up to become the giant cleanser for the refuse of the world, the determining factor of the weather of the world, the major means of shipping, transportation and commerce of the world?

Is it only ACCIDENTAL that life produces life, and pre-existing life of the same kind?

What about the briefest glimpse into the creatures of this earth? Is the almost incredible ability of the salmon to return to the very river, find the same tributary, swim unerringly to the same branch, and find the exact gravel bed where it was spawned, and from which it departed to the sea years before as a tiny fingerling only another accident?

Do migratory waterfowl fly thousands of miles through the thickest storms and find a tiny nest with unerring accuracy that defies the finest of man's radar, navigational instruments and weather forecasts, all by accident?

No, nature is NOT "accidental." Everything you see about you reflects tremendous complexity, careful planning, meticulous detail, great beauty and harmony, and follows definite, unchangeable, unshakable, immutable LAWS! And still, the great "philosophers" and educators of the world believe, somehow, it all happened by accident!


An Accident-prone World

Today's news is mostly concerned with accidents.

Terrible train wrecks, plane crashes, automobile and bus collisions. Buildings collapse, stands fold at a sports scene, cars leap the racetrack roadway, gas explosions hurl torn bodies through the air at an ice show.

Each newspaper is filled with the grisly details of the latest in a chain of terrible loss of life and property, or the permanent injury and maiming of human beings in some totally unexpected, unprepared-for event — an accident.

The tearful spouse tells police about the knifing of his mate — sobbing, "I didn't MEAN it — I didn't WANT to HURT her — IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, a horrible mistake!"

And you're living in the frightening time when HUMAN ANNIHILATION is possible — as a result of an accident.

A faulty transistor, a bad tube, a wayward airplane, a falling star, a tiny insect in a computer — these could set in motion a massive hydrogen bomb attack that could result in the obliteration of humanity. Accidentally.

You were BORN into a hostile world — a world of laws, forces, energies; a world of implements, machines, and other people.

As a baby, you were accident-prone. Your mother had to protect you from falling off the bed, from picking up knives, from crawling over window sills, from running into the street.

As a child you lived through a series of accidents. You couldn't control your bodily processes — but each occasion was an accident — you didn't mean it.

An accident is a MISTAKE. It's not planned, or it couldn't BE an accident. It just seems to HAPPEN, somehow. And, as a child, you made many mistakes.

But accidents don't only occur with sharp knives, furnace gratings, or baby's toys.

Millions of people are living LIFE accidentally!


Does Life Just "Happen" to You?

What's your average day like? How do you live? Is it just one event, one happening, one moment after the other?

Take an average teenager. He says, "Let's go down to the malt shop and see who's around." Later, after the gang fight, youths have said, "I don't know how it happened — a bunch of the fellows were just sorta 'hangin' around' and then this guy yelled something —".

That's just it.

Nobody planned it, especially. It just "happened."

Do most of YOUR days just "happen"?

Probably they do unless you are totally different from the majority of people on this broad earth!

You have certain opinions, religious beliefs, political views, racial prejudices. How come? Where did you get them? Did you search out a PARTICULAR source, labeled with the particular approach you NOW have, and diligently seek to inculcate such views into your mind?

Probably not — but somehow, probably ACCIDENTALLY, it got into your mind.

Do you know WHY you're alive? Do you know your real GOAL in life? Do you know, and can you PROVE your very purpose in drawing breath? Do you know how to fulfill that purpose, and have a sense of definite direction, purposeful, practical step-by-step accomplishment of that purpose?

Probably, you don't KNOW many people who live for any such purpose. Rather, they drift aimlessly through life, carelessly living each moment as it comes to them.

They live accidentally.
