How can religious people explain this?

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

How can religious people explain this? (Guardian)

An interesting slant on the Asia Disaster, courtesy of Guardian Unlimited. Certainly worth reading alongside the corresponding (and illustrated) Newsblog item. It must have been a difficult decision for the Editor, whether or not to publish this item in the middle of the crisis itself, but I certainly think that the right decision was made.

If you have not yet read Scott Adams’s books God’s Debris: A Thought Experiment and its sequel The Religion War then you are genuinely missing out on some interesting challenges to traditional philosophies. From the guy who brought you Dilbert. Unlikely, but true. Both books are also available in the ebook format, which I’ve come to love with my Pocket PC (I’m currently making my way though The Da Vinci Code, if you must know). Check mslit.com for details.
