Philippines Typhoon – My Outlook

Whos fault?

Philippines Disaster

Im sure we have all seen the horrific images and footage from the Philippines?

The devastation and suffering is on a massive scale and I post a question for you:

Who was responsible?

Now, the reason I ask this question is because I was listening to some religious radio hams on HF this last week doing a bible study group.

Im fairly sure that religion on Ham Radio was a subject to be avoided a bit like politics but no, its alive and well at the top end of the 14Mhz ham band. I’ve always wondered what would happen if a Islamic group of radio hams decided to study the Koran on the same band? Anyway, I digress from my point.

After listening to these guys ramble on for a wee while it got me thinking into what a person with faith would think about the Typhoon disaster?

So to define my question a little more there are some replies to the question that are out of bounds because they are a stock answer to the question.

These are:

It was the Devil

Cant have that because thats just an easy avoidance of the question.

The people must of done something bad

Cant have that either because thats a lame answer.

It would be very interesting to see a really credible answer to my question of “Who is responsible”?

Oh, I do have another sub question to the original one and that is:

Why would a God that so much loves his children inflict so much pain upon them?

If he loves them so much then why make their lives an abject misery?

Ill be very interested to see some justification or is it just a case of nobody being responsible and its just nature at its worst?

You decide.
