"The death and suffering caused by this earthquake is a reminder of sin and the severe consequences that rebellion against our Creator brings"

https://answersingenesis.org...

"It's important to know that such tragedy is not God's fault, it's our fault because of our sin in Adam."

Shouldn't we have moved beyond explaining natural disasters as the dissatisfaction or warning from the gods?

This may be the result of an inability to understand or the lack of desire to understand the world. That and/or years of indoctrination.

The root to the word "BRAHMAN" originally meant "SPEECH", much the same as the "LOGOS" is said to mean "WORD," but both are in fact, the gathered genetic information of every universal body throughout all eternity. Both Brahman and Logos, should be seen as the essential divine reality of the universe the eternal spirit from which all being originates, and to which all must return at the close of each cycle of universal activity .

The LOGOS does not express that gathered information in spoken words, but in the creation of another physical universal body in the image and likeness of the previous universe.

The Logos God is no respecter of man. He sends his blessings of rain and produce on the righteous and the wicked alike, and he sends his disasters on the wicked and righteous alike. It is the Most High intellect that develops within the eternal evolving Logos, "The Son of Man" the Supreme Personality of Godhead to have developed within the evolving LOGOS, who is able to warn those who are receptive to his spirit, of any coming disasters.

How many stories will come out of Napal, of people whose gut feelings told them something bad was about to occur, and who acted on that warning and were saved because they were able to feel the pull of the spirit that dwells behind the veil of the flesh, within the innermost sanctuary of his temporary tabernacle, which is their bodies.

You cannot find scriptures to defend your beliefs, cannot find evidence in science to support your beliefs. You turn to the almighty for help and He hopes some rhymes will carry you through. Why God keeps his chosen people developmentally arrested at a grade 4 level is profoundly constant.

Yes, but apparently we haven't. It is even enshrined in law in this country anyway, that some things can be called "an act of God", though I notice that whilst they are quick to blame him for the unpleasant things they never give him the credit for the good things.

Typical ungrateful, unjust, humans.

Says the man who got his Hindu atheist butt kicked by this Celestial Torah Christian who pointed out Hinduism's Fatal Flaw (Buddhism's too) that keeps Hinduism from being able to help India in any significant way. India, Nepal, are suffering from Bad Religions that cannot deal with social organization as necessary for community survival let alone well-being.

Here's what this Christian visionary would have loved to see helping Nepal. The Lifeline Lottery Project that funds Disaster Relief and one of our Disaster Relief Kits was going to be Down Home tents, tents made like sleeping bags and insulated, just the thing Nepalese could have used. We haven't been able to get funding for the Lifeline Lottery system yet but someday it will happen. Http://lifelinelottery.org....

Tell us oh atheist Hindu, what are you atheists doing for Nepal's earthquake victims? Or doing anything to help your fellow human beings like theists do, most all major disaster relief coming from religious people's contribution, atheists being quite stingy about giving help to others as charity giving statistics show.

I've got a better (not hard), more relevant (not hard) reminder about obeying our Creator than the earthquake: Don't sell illegal weapons that were banned by your own treaty! There seems to be a stronger relationship between that sin, and the 1000 who just recently die from being cluster bombed in Yemen from Saudis with the weapons the US illegally sold them. The blood is on the US' hands, as much as anyone's.

This is the religion forum, bub, so the politics talk is definitely off topic. FYI your source says the US , Saudi Arabia, and Yemen have not banned these weapons (0:58), so there is no violation of any treaty. (thought you might like to know)

Obviously many people are still trapped in the traditions and superstitions which their forefathers passed down from one generation to the next. They do not question whether what they were taught is true or false. They simply take it all for granted and "believe by faith" much like a child believes anything their parents tell them rather than question whether the stories are fact or fiction.
Natural disasters are not the fault of any humans. They are not caused because any angry gods are displeased with anyone.
Blame "Mother Nature" for them if you wish to blame anyone. She is an unpredictable old lady who couldn't care who or what she destroys when she throws her "tantrums". ;-)

To claim that any atheists do less than theists to help other people is a very biased
and prejudiced opinion especially when the religious institutions brag about how much money they "give".
What happened to the concept of giving in secret? Matt 6: 1-4.

http://thetruthwins.com...
http://www.dailymail.co.uk...

97% of the money that people give to so called charities never gets into the hands of the people that need it.
It is used to pay wages and pay for advertising and other things to keep the charity itself running.

The best way to help victims of any natural disasters is to go to where they live and directly help them by buying them what they need instead of handing money to charitable organizations which spend more than half of it on advertising their own charitable institutions and paying wages to their permanent staff.

Thanks for the correction! I heard Saudi Arabia and Yemen, but I didn't hear US.

On a different topic--I feel you on the separation of politics and religion. The way I grew up, these were strictly separated topics. However, as I'm growing I think there may be more of an overlap. I agree that the earthquake should not be attributed to God's wrath. However, I was hoping to propose that maybe there IS a place for a religious commentary in politics--simple things, such as stopping oppression and murder. The things I was saying reflected my hope about what religion could become (not to understate the important ways it already functions)--a community of voices decrying ethical violations and violence.

Although I do empathize with the position that religion can often interact badly with politics. But not always, I think.

"It's important to know that such tragedy is not God's fault, it's our fault because of our sin in Adam."

Shouldn't we have moved beyond explaining natural disasters as the dissatisfaction or warning from the gods?

The root to the word "BRAHMAN" originally meant "SPEECH", much the same as the "LOGOS" is said to mean "WORD," but both are in fact, the gathered genetic information of every universal body throughout all eternity. Both Brahman and Logos, should be seen as the essential divine reality of the universe the eternal spirit from which all being originates, and to which all must return at the close of each cycle of universal activity .

The LOGOS does not express that gathered information in spoken words, but in the creation of another physical universal body in the image and likeness of the previous universe.

The Logos God is no respecter of man. He sends his blessings of rain and produce on the righteous and the wicked alike, and he sends his disasters on the wicked and righteous alike. It is the Most High intellect that develops within the eternal evolving Logos, "The Son of Man" the Supreme Personality of Godhead to have developed within the evolving LOGOS, who is able to warn those who are receptive to his spirit, of any coming disasters.

How many stories will come out of Napal, of people whose gut feelings told them something bad was about to occur, and who acted on that warning and were saved because they were able to feel the pull of the spirit that dwells behind the veil of the flesh, within the innermost sanctuary of his temporary tabernacle, which is their bodies.

Oh dear, what twaddle.

It waddles and it twaddles
A troll without a brain
It don't what it's talkin bout
It don't know what it's sayin
It dont know if it's female
It don't know if it's male
It tries to bait Believers
But again bulpoof you fail.

You cannot find scriptures to defend your beliefs, cannot find evidence in science to support your beliefs. You turn to the almighty for help and He hopes some rhymes will carry you through. Why God keeps his chosen people developmentally arrested at a grade 4 level is profoundly constant.

Says the man who got his Hindu atheist butt kicked by this Celestial Torah Christian who pointed out Hinduism's Fatal Flaw (Buddhism's too) that keeps Hinduism from being able to help India in any significant way. India, Nepal, are suffering from Bad Religions that cannot deal with social organization as necessary for community survival let alone well-being.

Here's what this Christian visionary would have loved to see helping Nepal. The Lifeline Lottery Project that funds Disaster Relief and one of our Disaster Relief Kits was going to be Down Home tents, tents made like sleeping bags and insulated, just the thing Nepalese could have used. We haven't been able to get funding for the Lifeline Lottery system yet but someday it will happen. Http://lifelinelottery.org....

Tell us oh atheist Hindu, what are you atheists doing for Nepal's earthquake victims? Or doing anything to help your fellow human beings like theists do, most all major disaster relief coming from religious people's contribution, atheists being quite stingy about giving help to others as charity giving statistics show.

Kicked???? You mean "KISSED", and you can kiss my butt again any time you so choose.

You've let the stars get in your eyes, blowing star-dust with your farts.

When you finally get your head out of the stars and get your feet back onto solid ground, I will reveal how idiotic your star gazing belief is,.
