The topic for the moment is "Why do people blame God for their misfortune"
First off God made us Humans with a conceptual consciousness.. To figure Things/Problems out for ourselves.. To create beautiful works of art, to till a field so we can feed ourselves, harvest herbs for medicine, Smelt metal so we can create cooking utensils and so forth , Weapons to protect us from beasts and each other. I see alot of people asking this question "Why did God do this to me"
God didn't give you cancer because you smoked Cigarettes.. You gave your self Cancer for smoking 2 packs a day for 40 Years.
Why are the children in Africa dying from hunger and a myriad of Diseases...
Because you live in a bad place. It's hard to grow food when you live in a desert type environment.
People need to stop Blaming God for the day to day events surrounding us.
We have the ability to make change.. We have the greatest gift..

Perhaps it would be pertinent to ask the opposite question? Why do people attribute every positive thing in their lives to god? I'm sure there are rich "fortunate sons" out there who thank god everyday that they never have to work a day in their lives. Famous ballplayers thank god for winning the World Series? Is that realistic? The most pious team supposedly wins the WS? Is that what we're supposed to believe? It's all rubbish to me.
