Several commentors have asked why God would help us find our car keys but not help people in their worst extremities. This lack of understanding was echoed by a catholic Bishop (!) who after The Superstorm commented that he didn't understand why God would allow such things. Does ANYbody read the scriptures? God required of His own Son the worst trial of any being, ever--to save us, and to demonstrate that He had descended below ALL things. Do we forget the trial of Abraham, when he was asked to sacrifice Isaac? Lesson: there is NOTHING the Lord may not ask of us. This life WAS to be of trial--that is its raison d'etre. I commented earlier that perhaps those simple blessings were to show kindness and comfort--and build faith. The big items that SEEM unanswered are pretty obviously exactly those things with which He chooses to try us. NObody escapes this life without trials. That is WHY we are here.

I do NOT reject all evidence of the existence of god.

There is NO such evidence, so I cannot reject it!
