Quote# 35536

It is very sad that "the scientists" always attribute the earthquakes to the" underwater faults rim..blah blah" TOTALLY discarding that THE GOD(we know)WHO CREATED the UNIVERSE and the planet earth IS SPEAKING also thru this multiple earthquakes and CALLING people to STOP and CONSIDER....to no avail seems to me....
9/11 and The Tsunami have come and gone and people JUST DON'T CARE...where is the SO CALLED REVIVAL of REPENTANCE and RETURN to GOD that many PREACHERS have been TRUMPETING for so long???

I love people who blame 9/11 on God and still get upset with people who oppose the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Er, if it was Usama, don't blame God.
If it was God, don't invade Afghanistan.

You can't have your cake and smite it too.

STOP shouting EVERY other WORD!

Maybe that revival isn't happening because, you know, most people have enough education to know that there are natural causes (or unnatural, 9/11, but not supernatural) for disasters. And most people have pretty much figured out, even if it is subconsciously known and not consciously acknowledged, that prayer doesn't do a damn thing.

And what if this 'return to god' occurred and these events STILL happened? Who would you fault then?

This line of thinking is so tired and old. Why is god constrained to natural disasters to kill people? If he's completely angry, why not just obliterate people in a bloody, inexplicable mess? Why use something as mundane as an earthquake or tsunami?

So your god has laryngitis and can't speak?

Look, any omnipotent entity is, by defnition, quite capable of clearly speaking to puny minions such as ourselves. That your omnipotent god chooses not to speak clearly and instead sends vague and unintelligible messages through death, disease and destruction just make him a sadist.

Or maybe that god doesn't exist after all, and nature is just doing what nature does.

So your god keeps on doing these things "to no avail" because people "JUST DON'T CARE," and yet your god continues to do them anyway, century after century after century. Isn't that the definition of insanity? Why doesn't this god of yours wise up and do something that works?

On roberto's reasoning, God is saying he's an indiscriminate, murdering sadist.

Why bother 'returning to God', it's never saved anyone from being killed by terrorists, earthquakes, tsunamis or tornados in the past?

2/27/2008 3:07:13 PM


Ok, your preachers have been predicting something and it's not happening...keep running with that line of reasoning. Follow it to the logical conclusion. We'll be waiting.

It's not wise to skip on your meds.

Preachers trumpeting like elephants. Nice image.

No. Everything that happens within the planet's lithosphere has a physical explanation. Just like everything else.

Why DOES Christian PEOPLE then DIED in EARTHQUAKES and TSUNAMIS and 9/11? IF some 80% of AMERICAN are CHRISTIANS why THEN did THE 9/11 happen? DID they RETURN to GOD by DIEING in a FIRE?

If you use ALL CAPS and LOTS of PUNCTUATION MARKS, then EVERYTHING you say MUST be TRUE!!!!!

It's funny. Those same scientists have recorded Earthquakes since ever and periodically in areas which are not populated and have, so, not such a dramatic effect. You know, if God is trying to speak through earthquakes, he's asuming that it's going to fall on deaf ears.

No. It's really sad that you believe that your so called god tries to speak to people in the form of death and destruction.

"Those little bastards won't listen to me! Take that!" *Slams his smite button*

I'd suggest sending roberto49 back to school but as he would just sit at home and read his black book, it would all be a waste of time.

Maybe the REPENTANCE doesn't take place because most sane people realized ages ago that attributing natural desasters to a deity and blindly following the orders of a shaman/priest who claims to have the key to prevent such desasters is... well... stupid?

2/27/2008 3:46:46 PM


Are we to assume, then, that it's sheer coincidence that whatever you think god is trying to say by moving tectonic plates (why he's evidently incapable of simple verbal communication, I have no idea) requires him to move them in exactly the same way as they would on their own? How very convenient - it'd be like taking out a fresh piece of paper to write an angry letter on and finding your letter already written on it by some random defect in the paper mill distributing dark patches in the shape of words, saving you ink and effort.

2/27/2008 4:03:26 PM

Funny how on 9/11 God waited until he had a right-wing fundie President in the white House to do that instead of when he had a liberal moderate Christian! Maybe God was trying to tell YOU FUNDIES something and you were too stupid to catch it?
