Act of God

I go to a religious college specifically it is the third Order of Francis of Assisi (A sect of the Roman Catholic Church) Now to be honest I love the school. I have had some of the best professors here in my extensive quest for the real holy grail, the holy grail of knowledge. I actually like the people I am in class with they are great and most days I actually look forward to going.

With that said it is well known that I am an atheist at this school often in conflict with my peers.

All of that was really just a long way to get to the meat of the post.

In our Business Communications class we are studying Crisis Management. The book actually has a section called Planning for Acts of God. It then went on to list them....hurricanes, floods, lightning strikes, tornado's etc. I found it utterly amusing that if their Deity acts it is usually to punished them or inflict pain, death and destruction. You think that the acts of a God worthy of worship would be Feeding people, healing people etc.

I also find it amusing that we are still referring to these well known natural phenomenon as Acts of God.

How do you know there is No God? How do I know there is a God? I guess it all comes down to faith and belief.....

As for the Acts of God...I don't believe that God puts natural disasters out there to hurt humans....but I do think He plays a role in how the Earth works.

Anyway...I don't want to get into a heated debate.....

Best of luck in figuring out that whole "Acts of God" chapter...LOL
