    Are there any who can provide a thoughtful "opinion" in ref. to the "reason and purpose" this "OMNISCIENT" biblical god thing would plan and perpetrated the murder of so many of "it's" Haitian children?

      If the God of the Bible exists, sounds logical. He has been doing this kind of evil things for ages!

      But for me ,the only cause of this disaster is Nature. Nature doesn't contemplate who's killed in the process.

      The age old argument of God works in mysterious ways.

        Are my questions:
        Too thought provoking?
        Too "profound" to be approached?
        Too sensitive to be thoughtfully discussed?
        Too complex to consider?
        Or is it that "too" many give lip service to a subject they know nothing about?
        Help me. I ask these questions in an effort to gain information which might explain, for me, why so many seem to be so easily fooled.
        Any takers?..:-)

        .sensationalism. antagonistic.pot stirring .  a subversive undermining with the intent to create tension. pouring fule onto a fire . to watch it burn .certainly not to bring contrary   thinking together. thats what i think your doing. nothing profound about it. profanity more like it. hows that?

    @quark

    Are you some kind of teacher ?
    You sound so 'scholar'!
    We are not pupils.
    Your threads sound like examinations, and your answers as well.
    Are you examining us ?
    I don't find your questions provoking nor profound.
    I find them interesting in a funny way,
    I feel like in school
    lol

      Tantrum:
      Wonderful!
      I try to ask questions that interest me in the hope that one day I may find an answer to a few of them that makes sense to me.
      I have been a searcher all my life.
      Isn't "curiosity" the essence of human life?
      Isn't it said that "knowledge is power?"
      I was taught THAT as a child.
      My grandmother (I was a foster child) who was strong woman who endured the pain and suffering of the late 20's and 30's during the "Great Depression," told me that education results in understanding. Never stop learning.
      I ask questions that confuse many simply because they have no knowledge or desire to gain knowledge about what I ask.
      Life, to me, is to be lived and enjoyed!
      I spent many years as a religious seminarian prepping for the pulpit.
      Eventually, as I studied and digested information in many fields of science and philosophy, I became aware of the true value of all life on this planet.
      Truth's became evident.
      My grandmothers words have never left me nor have they failed me.
      I am still a "seeker" and a believer that no question is silly or unworthy of an honest answer.
      So if my questions, in anyway, effect you in such a manner that you laugh or cry or wonder about my sanity then I am pleased because they effected you and you responded!
      I've lived long and experienced many wonderful things.
      I judge people by the way they treat and respond to others.
      If I remind you of a "teacher" in my manner of approach to others. so be it...but my intent is to inspire others to think and respond thoughtfully.
      I find that most don't or can't. Those I ignore. To those who offer thoughtfull opinion, I will challenge in the hope that the possibility exists I might learn something new, which I can add to my acumen of information, thereby, hopefully, making me a more able and adaptable human being.
      I could add much more, but I hope this suffices. Does it?
      Thanks for your interesting reply...:-)

          Tantrum:
          There's not much to understand when reading your comments...except that they are, in the main, snide and valueless.
          I know you'll dump on me for this comment...lol.. but that's ok..if it keeps you busy and entertained.
          I'll try to keep ya laughing and responding by asking more "silly" meaningless questions in didactic form....lol  :-)

            That's all your questions deserve.
            Other hubbers deserve differently.
            And don't worry. I won't comment again.You don't make me laugh, just smile. I have ways to entertain myself. Commenting here was only a pastime.
            Didactic forms reminds me of school.
            I found your threads very 'didactic' big_smile

      We have an enemy, He hates us! He will stop at nothing to destroy us. He manipulates
      the weather, he even invites peoples to live in areas that are known to be hazardous.

      He talks to us, do we listen?

      There will be stories of survivors, miraculous stories of Gods hand.

      God does not want anything bad to happen to us.

      What if from the beginning God told these peoples great great great great grandfather to leave the island.

      But the great great great great grandfather chose not to. He did not believe it was necessary. But God had already forewarned them.

      I only know that God did not do this.

      God is good and He only gives us good things.

      If we were warned and chose to ignore the warning, then how is this Gods fault?  We can do what ever we want to, and yes if we want to go to H---.  He will let us!

      I will tell you that God will bring into His heaven all who wanted to go there.
      They are in a magnificent place with no more pain nor suffering.

          No its not all that, I stepped away.

          You are right to encourage thoughts.

          It is a most unfortunate event. My heart aches for these people.

          It is not easy to explain the unexplainable.
