A great amount of the bad that befalls “good” people they bring upon themselves unknowingly.
As an example; the main reason for famine is overpopulation, on both large and small scales. If a family can’t support 2 children they often have more rather than less. If a land can support hundreds there are most often thousands.
Another example is people who live in regions with very high crime. Almost all gang members come from religious families. There are very few drug cartel members who didn’t grow up in Christian families of one ilk or another. This is true whether you want to talk about street gangs or mafias.
Those same people will say the reason is poverty but that is a false belief.
China, for example, is almost entirely atheist and the crime rates in even the poorest regions of China are among the lowest.
South America has high crime even in the best areas and they are roughly 90% devote Catholics.
The biggest difference, and I have lived in both places, is that the Chinese don’t try to make, and don’t accept, excuses. If you ask a Chinese person why someone committed a crime they will say they are a bad person and should be punished severely. I have never heard a Chinese say they believe in forgiving without punishment suiting the severity of the crime, including death.
Ask that same question in Colombia and you will hear an endless stream of excuses.
But the sad fact is if you turn the other cheek the offender will pick your other pocket.
Mankind, as a whole, is going to go through a great time of dying. It is probably coming sooner than most will admit. We have collectively out smarted ourselves and have become too successful. In so doing we have exceeded the limits of our resources.
There are currently 7 Billion people on the planet, a planet that can support at most 4 Billion. We are slated to hit 9 Billion by 2030.
If one accepts that man is god and the words of religion were all written by man then you can say that it is an act of gods that we are in this position. Gods are, after all, a totally human concept.
