THE JAPANESE CATASTROPHE. When Are We Going To Learn?

Updated on June 12, 2011

I've almost given up many times over the years trying to convince people that our religious beliefs are nothing more than dangerous primitive fears and fairy tales. In the last few years, better than a million people have been killed by natural disasters in our world in just the last few years. Men, women, and yes, little innocent children have all suffered premature death in ways too horrible to even imagine.

227,000 in the Indian Ocean tsunami. 230,000 in Haitian earthquake, and now Japan. Probably tens of thousands more That's just a few of the really big disasters. Incredible destruction, injury, death and suffering. Yet you believers still claim "God loves you", "God is protecting you". "Praise the lord", and the big one I'll never understand, "God is merciful".


I'm not going to argue the point in this hub. If your interested in more detail and what you can do about it, you can find a few other hubs right here on my HubPages site that explains the obvious in detail.


If there was a God or any other entity that could create a planet such as earth in a matter of a few days let alone an entire universe, one would think he'd also have the power to stop these catastrophes from happening anytime he wanted. Especially when they kill his so called “beloved children” by the millions year after year after year.


If you have any doubts about what I'm saying while thousands of people are dying minute by minute under tons of mud and broken buildings then all I can say is that we deserve what we have been getting since we first knelt down to pray.


I was in Japan for two years and just like any other country, they have religious shrines and buildings everywhere you go. The amount of time, money, and resources wasted over the centuries is unimaginable. What if they had invested all those resources in scientific ways of preventing some of the natural disasters that befall their country. The tsunami might have been stopped at the beach or prevented all together. Praying doesn't do a damn bit of good as the Japanese people are finding out right this second.


Our planet is a beautiful place to live there's no doubt about that. But it also happens to be a very dangerous place to live as well. Why do we all sit on our asses and actually believe some invisible guy that lives in the sky somewhere is going to take care of us all? Isn't it fairly obvious to you by now that he simply doesn't exist, or just doesn't give a damn? Which one is it?

      I have no idea what you just said, or tried to.

      I'll ask you one question about your coveted god.

      Our father right? Would you do or even allow what happened in Japan, happen to YOUR children?

      You cannot answer that and still believe what you do.

      Why its name is the earth?

      Of whom we know that its name is the earth?

      -- I do not know, and I believe only God knows --

      Hiya JT...

      You have no idea how refreshing it is to listen to someone that coverts reality. "Delusion", is putting it mildly. "Certifiable, global insanity" is a little closer to the truth. There just isn't any words to describe humanities ignorance in this matter. You can take any religious believer you wish and line up scores of black and white proofs right in front of their eyes and you might as well be blowing bubbles.

      Looking deep into this subjet as I have for 50 years now,there is no end to proof and scientific evidence, and logic I might ad.

      Humanity is,and always has been unable to accept reality over fear which some day soon, has to lead to our destruction mostly due to our modern day technology. It's like giving a 3 year old child a live grenade and asking him not to pull the pin.You can pretty much start planning his funeral now.

      Hi Suits,

      If I have my choice between a booming voice from he sky or a old fat dude with a beard at the North Pole, I chose neither. I asked this earlier. What is the difference between religious belief and delusion in the absence of scientific evidence?

      Great Article.

      Think about what you just said Omar. If God (whom ever's), is not happy with our obedience, then it's understandable to murder hundreds of thousands of people? That's insane Omar! And what about our totally innocent children and people that follow their gods commands to the letter? They get murdered right along with the sinners apparently.

      Your one of these people that are going to believe what you were obviously trained to believe as a child and no matter what anyone says, does,or even prooves, your going to believe anyway. That my friend is where our global problem resides. You guys don't want the truth. It's that simple so it goes on and on and on. Generation after generation of killing, destruction and flat out "insanity"

      I challange you to show me one TINY BIT of certifiable proof that any god ever existed. Don't try because they isn't any on our entire planet. None, nothing, zip, nada. Yet everyone still believes even after God's so called wrath takes out your own children. That seems to be OK with you....Well it's not with me.

      Tnx much for the comeback Omar. A good beginning for you would be to forget about what you were taught as a child and begin seeking proovable truth. You can't go wrong that way...
