Quote# 63214

Well, the Christian view is that humanity was put in charge of creation by God, with powers delegated from him. Humanity however ignored the guidelines for managing this. If you wire a plug the wrong way because you deliberately ignore the instructions on how to do so, you should not be surprised if you get an electric shock. As a result of humanity's disobedience, the whole of creation is now out of joint and doesn't 'run' as it should. That's why tsunamis and other shit happens. No use in pointing the finger at God when there are three other fingers pointing back at you.

So thats why Tsunamis and shit like that never effect a Muslim nation and only Christian ones?

Yes, yes, of course. The presence of unstable undersea fault lines, which were formed millions of years before humanity even existed, are all caused by gay sex.

Sheesh... that sounds like my ex! Malcolm is that you?

He used to love saying the "when you point your finger at me, there are three more pointing back at you" after he'd beaten the shit out of me and I was accusing him of being an asshole!

Oh that's just great. You know, it's morally wrong to punish children for the sins of their parents.

You think Tsunami and Earthquakes happen because we are bad?

How quaint! You think we are important to the geological forces of the earth which kill irrespective of who the hell you are.

Mr. Creazil

Yes, all the problem's are our fault. If only god were omnipotent, then maybe he could fix it, right?

Man, Phoenix Wright must have pointed a lot of fingers at himself over the course of his career.

When they say that all disasters are humanity's fault what they really mean is that disaster happen because of non-christians. A good example of this is Falwell blaming 9/11 on groups of americans that he personally didn't like. These are the type of people that will gladly place blame on anyone other than themselves, they think they have a direct line to "god" and that it makes them better than everyone who doesn't meet their definition of a "true christian".

so, what exactly was it we did wrong?

did we not filter the ocean enough times a month?

"<grammar nazi>And it's tsunami, not "tsunamis". The plural is the same as the singular.</grammar nazi>"

<grammar nazi>Actually it can be spelt both ways. Making a mistake is one thing, but when correcting others, make damn sure you are right first.</grammar nazi>

Well, at least he is close to being an enviromentalist....

Still stupid, 'cause he thinks that prayer will make the tornado go away, but he is close.

Except there's no increase in natural (because that's what they are) disasters where they aren't good Christians. The Bible belt gets most tornados and hurricanes and therefor floods. Where's the stupid Farwell or Roberstson comments and accusations then?

And just to nitpick: to point at something is to straighten the finger or arm at somethings direction, bent fingers are not pointing

When I give you the finger do you think I'm pointing at my inside elbow? What the hell's my thumb pointing at? I'm surprised this phrase" ,,three other fingers pointing back' didn't show up in a 'Bat Out Of Hell' album, cliché wizard that Steinman was

Sorry but old phrases that never made sense should be eliminated from the language, like all clichés except 'shit happens' ( as it's the 'unifying theory of everything' that falls into the catagory only due to it's wide usage)

Doubting Thomas

Actually, if the plug is insulated you shouldn't get an electric shock even if it's been wired up wrong. You might blow a fuse or breaker, though.

And no, I didn't cause tsunami or "other shit." If I could control the weather, I'd be the most powerful man on the planet.

No use in pointing the finger at God when there are three other fingers pointing back at you.

I think you may be on to something there.

Who gives a flying fuck what direction fingers are pointing in? It's the blame that matters, and it belongs squarely to your god, the omnipotent asshole.
