Should I thank or blame GOD?

Japan Atlantis thread reminded me of this.

BKNís post on Japan earthquake thread moved me. I felt very sad on reading his post. I could almost feel his sadness and frustration when he added that he gives a shit to GOD. Perhaps, I am not very sure, in his situation, I would also have said so. But that raised a question for me Ė is my faith in my god only because I havenít been through any calamity?

I googled for the scientific reason for earthquake. It says earthquakes are caused by the movement of continental plates which floats on molten mantel. If those molten mantels are not there, the van-allen radiation shield and earthís magnetosphere would not exist and we all will die due to solar radiation. These movements of continental plates also prevent land being washed away into oceans and thatís one more reason of why life is still going on.

So as per the scientific reasons for earthquakes, it seems earthquakes are necessary for sustaining life on earth.

Should we thank GOD for his efforts on sustaining life (moving those continental plates are no mean feat) or blame GOD for earthquakes?

Re: Should I thank or blame GOD?

number of earthquakes is proportional to quantity of evil. science may not agree. its a way of god reminding man of his worth.

Yes. As long as they happen in Pukistan or the shitholes like Afghanistan.



On serious note,

I was watching on TV last night about the three gorges dam in China. That thing is so huge and the reservoir is gonna hold so much water, they said moving these much water to one spot will move the earth's axis, also its going to increase more chances of earthquake.
So if it will happen (lets hope not), Will it be called Man Made Earthquake? So whom to thank? God Or Chinks?

Re: Should I thank or blame GOD?

lalabhai,
dams are made after removing the heavier earth materials i.e. rocks, metals, etc. which density higher than water..and use of heavier RCC structure is tiny if compare to the demolished old earth part.. Not agreed?

Dont forget that modi always keep fake crying to increase height of sarkar sarovar dam more and more in 5 sorry, 5.5, sorry 6 crore gujarati's interest.. Now you must be convinced. Either way.

Does this song from Hindi movie Masoom answer your question?

Tujhse Naaraaz Nahiin Zindagi
Hairaan Hoon Main
O Hairaan Huun Main
Tere Masum Sawaalon Se Pareshaan Hoon Main
O Pareshaan Hoon Main

Jeene Ke Liye Sochaa Hi Nahi
Dard Sambhaalane Honge

Jeene Ke Liye Sochaa Hi Nahi
Dard Sambhaalane Honge

Muskuraaye To, Muskuraane Ke Karz Utarne Honge
Muskuraauun Kabhii To Lagataa Hai
Jaise Honthon Pe Karz Rakhaa Hai

Ho Tujhse Naaraaz Nahiin Zindagi
Hairaan Hoon Main
O Hairaan Huun Main

[Zindagii Tere Gam Ne Hamein
Rishte Naye Samajhaaye ]2

Mile Jo Hamein Dhoop Mein Mile
Chaanv Ke Thande Saaye

Ho Tujhse Naaraaz Nahin Zindagi
Hairaan Hoon Main
O Hairaan Huun Main

Aaj Agar Bhar Aai Hain
Boondein Baras Jaayengi
Kal Kyaa Pataa Inke Liye
Aankhein Taras Jaayengi
Jaane Kab Gum Kahaan Khoyaa
Ek Ansuun Chhupaake Rakhaa Thaa

Ho Tujhse Naaraaz Nahin Zindagi
Hairaan Hoon Main
O Hairaan Huun Main

Tere Masum Sawaalon Se Pareshaan Hoon Main
O Pareshaan Hoon Main 3

strange r His ways u see. sometimes, when He wants to act, he chooses to warn by slapping not the real criminal but the one next to him/her/it. its like 'u have been warned'. some other times, He might slap the criminal directly.
kaljug mein to sabhi paapi hain. who knows whether its japanese or indians who are more paapi

Re: Should I thank or blame GOD?

I went to do some relief efforts and distribute some food material to the people affected in our own backyard...the tsunami that hit the Indian south eastern coast in 2006. Saw the catastrophe and was moved too....I too thought those lines.....
..........when I talked to the affected people...
..........saw the local politician trying to take away the food material from us and store it in his house, he said he would later distribute but who knows what he would do....
..........on the way when we met a couple of men who tried to guide us through the routes to most affected place, they said you give us the food materials, we will distribute to all our "muslim" people....
.....

but somehow we manage to reach the most remote places and distributed the relief material directly to the affected people....

nature has its own ways of bringing in new life and taking away others.....

So, are you saying that Newton's laws are only applicable to physical things (in a lab) Would you consider them to be universal... and applicable to both physical and sociological and historical and philosophical (and... add whatever you want to here) situations? And if you do then would you be considered progressive
