Where was God in Aurora?,

I have heard too many times that when bad things have happened, folks have said "It was God's will" Well, I dont think that kind of god is very caring or loving when he lets so much evil run amock. When I worked hard and succeeded, and started seeing results of the fruit of my labor, some folks have said "Thank God"....I immediately told them, "No, god had nothing to do with the sweat that dripped off my brow, the muscles I strained, and the effort I put into stepping forward each and every day".....That thoroughly pissed them off. People should start thinking from within instead of some invisible idea womewhere on the outside. It is we, who perform miracles, or sometimes are at the wrong or right place at the wrong or right time. Just as god isnt forcing that person to step in front of an oncoming train, that person is not in their right mind to think god will stop that train for him. We are to take responsibility for our actions and choices, learn from lessons in life, and use our own judgements to pursue the best path to follow.
Now that i've aged i've come to notice the same in them all but I "attack" Christianity because I hope that maybe perhaps I can change minds in time.
Eventually it will be common knowledge.
If it were up to me, I would have us start from scratch right now, a world project to find god.
Conclusive proof of a god, even 1 piece of evidence,
I would be a follower for life, that's why I search, in my own way.

God is everywhere. You can't imagine He's likes what goes down anymore than anyone else who suffers does.
He may be the reason the AK-47 jammed leaving 100 bullets un-fired. Who knows?????
