Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen?
Why does He just sit there as we're ravaged by disease, earthquakes, rising health care rates, and lousy movies?
I have three possible theories:
(1) Because He's punishing people.
(2) Because God only started the world, He doesn't micromanage everything that happens in it. He allows us to be regularly tested by tragedy and disaster, knowing full well that those of us who've lived by the good book will eventually meet our just rewards.
(3) Because there IS no God! It's just so much poppycock!
I'll go with choice #3. And you?
