Quote# 38519

Perhaps God allows earthquakes to happen because people are stupid enough to build houses where earthquakes happen? Seems like a common sense thing to me more than it is God's fault. Don't build houses on land where earthquakes happen and nobody gets hurt during earthquakes. It's quite simple really.

But if God is the one making the earthquakes happen, does it really matter where the houses are built?

Maybe God, so merciful as he is, would have given us a sixth sense to know where and how an earthquake can happen. Ah, it has to do with plates, now that I remember.

Good idea! I'll just move to flordia-oop hurricanes. how about Mississppi-wait! Floods. Well how about alaska? No,blizzards. Well Hawaii's pretty, oh but theres volcanos. Uh, Californias good! Wait no we're trying to GET AWAY from earthquakes....hmm well theres arizonia, but the heat might be a problem. Well nothing bad ever happens in Nebraska! Oh shit, they have tornadoes.....well fuck, there just ain't no place that ain't trying to kill you now is there.

We've gotten pretty good out here in California at designing buildings to withstand California-sized earthquakes. (The nuclear reactors, though, not so much...but that's another story.) Earthquakes these days on the Godless liberal left coast are less of a threat than tornadoes in the Bible Belt.

I'm lucky here in the UK because the builders all heeded God's warning and no houses get toppled by earthquakes.
