    Natural Disasters - God or Humanity

    Sure, there have been a lot of natural disasters lately(the Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, earthquakes, etc.). And it seems that religion turns these natural disasters into acts of God. Humans may have caused these disasters with global warming. Or it may just be nature and not related to anything at all.

    Is it God(religion), humanity, or just nature causing these disasters? Your opinions?

    So the question is whether it is?
    1)God
    2) Man
    3) Nature

    (just to be clear)

    I would imagine it depend on whether you are religious or not. 2 is definately out though. We give far to much credit to humanities ability to mess with nature in my opinion. I have yet to hear where we can cause earthquakes and according to the scientists we have actually been overdue for the other things (especially hurricanes).

    It all depends where you stand religously, as some have already said.

    But personally, I think Mother Nature is trying to tell us all something.

    I don't believe that any of it should have hit unexpected simply due to the fact to how calm the weather was in prior years. There's the whole thing about the "calm before the storm". If there's anything that's proven true over the years, an abundance of good leads to an abundance of bad and everything (for the most part, especially concerning nature) remains in balance.
    It's nature. Plain and simple. If you believe in God, you may say that everything that's happened was God's doing and it all consists of "blessings in disguise". Believe that if you wish, but to me, it's simply nature and nothing more.

    In my view, its a mixture of all three. Humans have contributed to it yes, but these things happen sometimes and its just down to nature. There's likely a long, detailed, scientifc explanation for it all but Im not going into that. As for God doing some of it, its possible and most likely a matter of your personal religious stance rather than being scientificly proven.
