It's foggy, gray, still cold and my mood, even though I met a friend for coffee is not the best.
I need to get over getting upset by stupidity.
While having coffee my friend and I overheard some ladies talking, at a nearby table. They were talking about the sermon they heard yesterday.
I'm afraid eavesdropping is not a good idea when you hear things that make you want to do a general head smack around their table.
Apparently, their minister, quoting from Romans told the congregation that natural disasters were the quickest way for God, to gather people to his side.
That God was responsible for thinning populations.
I'm breathing here.........................
Once upon a time I blogged JUST to share what I was working on. Then my blog moved into sharing stories and my thoughts about this and that. Well, I'm about to share again and if you are a follower of the above belief system PLEASE stay and listen.
A wise teacher, once told me that "the earth is a living being. It has it's own destiny, it's own spiritual growth in a system that we can't even begin to understand. We are to the Earth like fleas on the back of a dog. "
No matter what higher power you believe in. Trust me when I say that they are not thinning our population by creating earthquakes and other natural disasters.
Once we were close to the earth. We could feel her changes by watching the plants or other animals that shared this space with us. People seldom die because of an earthquake tremor. They die from MAN MADE CONSTRUCTION or MAN MADE OBJECTS.
A poor country builds poor shelters on unsteady ground with unsuitable materials and when the earth shutters they collapse. It's horrible, it's terrible.
We are out driving around on highways and overpasses when an earthquake happens and our cars fall off bridges. It's terrible, it's horrible. We would have been better off and safer if we had stayed at home, in the middle of the park, away from trees.
Haitians did not sell their collective souls to the devil.
Haitians were not singled out by God to be by his side.
WE, HUMANS create most of our problems on this planet. We build where it's not safe. We live in a manner that is disrespectful of our host.
We act surprised when natural disasters happen even though our technology has warned us that this might and will happen.
How many people, in this country KNOW they are living on a living breathing fault line? Have they moved?
It hasn't happened in 100 years so why would it happen now?
My earthquake kit is packed.
Not going to do you much good when your 40 year old or older home, collapses on you. It's not built to withstand an earthquake, it's not up to today's standards.
Natural disasters are terrible things and our attention needs to be on getting better organized, AS THE GREATEST NATION, to speedier help.
Faster help with water and tents for housing and medical stations and guards to protect the citizens from themselves.
OUR ATTENTION should not be on crazy talk. I'm not sorry if I am offending somebody.
Even speaking out loud the thought that a high power, any higher power purposely creates natural disasters to "thin" the population is just ignorance talking.
