Personally I'll try to work my own way back towards the epistemological complexities of why a 'god' seems to get his possible messages badly across. To make it easy for myself, I could reintroduce the argument, that it's because he possibly doesn't exist in the form commonly known as a 'god' and isn't a he/she/it, actually isn't anything at all, as we understand anything.
Why dont you just start a thread on the topic instead of continually trying to manipulate other peoples arguments into a platform for it?
It would come across as more intellectually honest than the method you are using now.

Another thing....regarding earthquakes and tsunami's in general - it's not like we live on some dead rock. The earth is basically alive and active and man knows this, so to put a nuclear reactor on a coastal city, in the ring of fire just doesn't seem like the brightest idea. After the 2004 tsuami I recall people insinuating that it happened because it was mostly muslim populations and the thought that some people feel that way makes me want to cringe. They didn't have to deal with the nuclear factor but still a couple hundred thousand people lost their lives because they lived in coastal communities that didn't have a great warning system. At the same time, tens of thousands have lost their lives in Japan, which has a great warning system. They only had ten or fifteen minutes to move entire communities, which isn't realistic.
The answers have to revolve around better planning. There were bomb shelters for wartime and here in the U.S. we have hurricane evacuation routes in the south.
Long story short, there's got to be a better way to save more lives.
