I agree with Geoff Olson entirely that the seemingly selective beneficence of God in dealing with disaster victims defies rational explanation and gives rise to questions of God's existence ; such inconsistencies are all too often dismissed as God "working in mysterious ways" or the failure of the faithful victims to pray hard enough.

I agree with Geoff Olson entirely that the seemingly selective beneficence of God in dealing with disaster victims defies rational explanation and gives rise to questions of God's existence (even among believers); such inconsistencies are all too often dismissed as God "working in mysterious ways" or the failure of the faithful victims to pray hard enough.

Such discussions and claims are best completely left out of objective news reporting, even in the religious United States."

Religious people will make up any excuse to defend their god.
