But God made man. Right?
If he made ALL this around us, why did he create such destructive race?
Bad day at the office...



Please read my postings concerning FREE WILL. God, did not create such a destructive planet of humans.We humans have done that because of the misuse of our free will, IMHO, that is. He gave everyone the power to make their own decisions thru their GOD GIVEN free will. God will help those of us that, sincerely, ASK our free will to be overridden by His Grace. Considering there are over 7 billion souls on this planet, most would rather use their own self will rather than ask God to come and take control over the direction of their lives.

Don't believe me?? All one needs to do is look at the sorry state we are, currently, experiencing ALL AROUND THE WORLD! Man driven thru self will instead of what God's will would be for us all. He will NOT intervene unless asked - with every fiber of our being......just look around. I see man's will all over causing suffering and very few humans even attempting to practice what His Will for us all may be.

My Grandma has done nothing but be a good Christian. She goes to service every week and in her spare time she chooses to help others.
She has Cancer. She has had one of her breasts removed and things still do not look for her.
Why would this happen to somebody who has devoted her LIFE, her free will to this God!?
I'm struggling to understand.

Eta: I've just realised i'm beginning to troll this thread.
I'm sorry if my questions sound childish. I'm no good at explaining what I want to say.
I'm in a not so good place and I guess I just needed to let off some steam.

I wondered if I was having a stroke by this time. But I knew, as soon as all this started, it was that anti-biotic - I took 20-30 minutes before I was able to reach 911 - that had started all these possibly life threatening reactions in all my body's systems and I KNEW within minutes I was in trouble.


The anti-biotic is called Avelox. I took it for several days last month but stop when I needed something stronger. When I became ill again a few days before this happened, doc gave me a shot & more of these Avelox samples. Within minutes of taking first dose all this began - rather quickly. Basically during the first days I used it last month, it attached itself to my cells and when I took that very first dose (3/30 NOT 3/29) it caused all my white blood cells to attack what they thought were the infection and pushed everything into overdrive. Basically attacking all the systems in my body EXTREMELY quickly. I KNEW I was in serious trouble and it had something to do with taking that damn pill!!

thx for the reply
WHOA~! never heard of that before..~! However, about 10 years ago, I was giving anti-biotics for cold symptoms I was having; I took the recommended dose before work with food as prescribed and 10 mins into work, I was TOTALLY confused about where I was what I needed to do..,

I had worked in that position for over a year.. I told the boss I had to go home.. I had to have my gf at the time pick me up and as we were pulling out of the parking lot, I went into dry heaves..

So, when it comes to anti-biotics, I always ask what the side effects are etc.. (I sure you did) but.. the doctors aren't really upfront with the info as we know..

ETA: My friend on last Thursday has a severe allergeitc reaction to a medication and his ENTIRE throat closed up, tighter than a drum .. rushed to the ER and is better.. Just frustrating to no end.. and I feel like screaming sometimes.. 'Is there a doctor in the house!!"

I,totally,understand your frustration, SilentE. My mom died from cancer. I must, again,refer you to my other posts as I believe ALL disease is MAN MADE!! Not of God. I believe any 'suffering' I have - and will - endure is about my spiritual growth. I do not like it, but I am not the one in charge. AND, I am quite sure you can find numerous total recovery stories using Faith.....when doctors have no clue.

Sorry about your GM. Maybe God needs her?? More than 'we' need her?? I wish I could help you more. BTW - how old is your gmom???

So, I am home and going to be okay - by HIS Grace, I believe - because He is not ready for me to go yet.


Seems as though prompt medical attention did the trick.

I think regardless of your own spiritual beliefs, or lack of, one thing is true; It's hard to appreciate the good, without experiencing the bad.

That being said, I don't judge anyone based on their religious beliefs. I have my own for my own reasons, and I think that goes for most people.

To the OP, glad you came out of this alright. Scary situation indeed.

The symptoms that might appear in many people the next months will be unusual an often mistaken. Psychosomatic symptoms because of this extreme religious thinking and the upcoming event of 21 December. Well.. If you really doubht that nothing will happen and feel the urge to write religious passages on every webpage you can find. This might be the case for even you.

The pressure of thought around what might happen and the fear that all those sins noone else than you know of, will amplify the Psychological bieffects of not taking this issue and talk it out.

Nothing is going to happen this year or the next. Atleast not in the hands of your God.

Stop using this religious stuff everytime you might get badly injured, dying or winning an award. If there is a God, i hardly think She/he is working that way.

If you are in trouble and God does exist. Wouldnt it mean its supposed to be?

If you thank him afterwards. Its like your thanking the one that could have avoided the whole mess.

The whole thing about we being in a situation ALL around us is something very very egotistical.

Here is why:

Rank Death toll (estimate) Event Location Date
1. 1,000,000–2,500,000 1931 China floods China July, November, 1931

2. 900,000–2,000,000[2] 1887 Yellow River flood China September, October, 1887

3. 830,000 1556 Shaanxi earthquake Shaanxi Province, China January 23, 1556

4. 500,000 1970 Bhola cyclone East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) November 13, 1970

5. 300,000 839 India Cyclone India November 25, 1839

6. 230,210-310,000 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami Sumatra, Indonesia and also affected India, Sri
Lanka, Maldives December 26, 2004

7. 250,000–300,000 526 Antioch earthquake Antioch, Byzantine Empire (now Turkey) May 526

8. 242,419 (the death toll has been estimated to be as high as 665,000)[1] 1976 Tangshan earthquake Tangshan, Hebei, China July 28, 1976

9. 234,117[1] 1920 Haiyuan earthquake Haiyuan, Ningxia-Gansu, China December 16, 1920

10. 230,000 1138 Aleppo earthquake Aleppo, Syria October 11, 1138

These are natural dissasters and as you can see it goes back to the point where there was no possibility to write it down.

Communicable diseases

Pandemics killing at least 1,000,000 people:

Rank Death toll (estimate) Event Location Date

18. 1,000,000–1,500,000 Great Irish Famine Ireland 1846–1849



Second world total was 50 million killed in the war

It has been claimed that aorund 2 billion people have died in wars. That is humans killing humans

As you can see. Its always been like this!!

We´re just better updated on every disaster that might upp the rating.

Ignorance is bliss.

Glad you are okay, and the pooch didn't get out.

I'd be carrying a mobile phone around with me if I was you. It could happen again.

Not sure on the God thing though but it's not me to judge what gives others comfort.

All the best.
