Ever since the following quote aired (on the TV series Babylon 5), I have found it to be a useful response to those who try to challenge agnosticism based on the "everything happens for a reason' philosophy:
Marcus (Cole): You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.
