Parents don't have absolute knowledge of what their kids will do, unlike the alleged "omnipotent and omniscient creator" that most theists believe in. Nor do they design their kids' DNA. What's bad about the example? Thanks for your empty criticism. "This is bad. no reason, just is."

At no point did anyone say they enjoyed watching children suffer in poverty. You were the one that said you enjoyed watching them die, because you know they are "going to heaven."

This picture, by noted photographer Kevin Carter, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1994. He took it during a famine in Sudan, Africa. The girl in the picture, near death, is attempting to crawl to a United Nations Food camp located a kilometre away. The vulture behind her is waiting for her to die, so it can eat her, as vultures do when they sense animals near death.

Photographer Kevin Carter left the area immediately after taking the picture, and workers at the United Nations food camp said that on that day no girl of that size came into the camp after the time the photo was taken. We can rationally assume that this child met the fate of so many other children in Africa: starvation and a slow agonizing death. 3 months after the photo was taken, Kevin Carter committed suicide, blaming the "agony and guilt" he felt over doing nothing to help the girl.

SO my question is: IF A SO-CALLED GOD ALLOWS THIS, WHY SHOULD ANYONE WORSHIP OR EVEN RESPECT THAT GOD?!

Make no mistake about it, this kind of thing is happening EVERY. SINGLE. DAY around the world. Innocent children are dying ever single day.

I Would like to hear a logical answer from anyone. "God works in mysterious ways" is not an answer. How about real logic, perhaps by someone with a real college education? Just tell me why I should not just believe in, but worship and obey any God who allows this torture of the innocent.

ANYONE?
The only way to understand why these kind of pains and suffering happens to the Black "African Nation" is First you would have to read the Bible to understand the prophecies that was placed upon there Nation because of the wicked things there Forfathers had done. According to concrete Geneology in the Zondervan Bible Pictorial Dictionary, the Black African Nation are Decendents of one of Noah's son's HAM. HAM was the progenitor of the dark races (BUT NOT THE NEGRO'S). The Tribes that were direct decendents of Noah's son HAM were the Libians, Cannanites, Ethiopians, Egyptians, and etc. The LORD had placed a curse on Cannan (Black Africans) and his seed for walking in on his father while he was naked and the scriptures also say's that the LORD had also places a curse on the Egyptians (Black Africans) for enslaving the Hebrew Isrealites for 400 hundred years. Thats why it's important to know who the real Hebrew Isrealites are according to scripture because GOD said that anyone who bless the children of Isreal will be Blessed, but anyone that Curses the Children of Isreal will be cursed "As a Whole Nation" not just indivdually, and those curses as you can see are still in affect today.

GOD said that he would Make the Egyptians a Base Nation, which basically means he will make them be on the Bottom under all Nations (The Worst of all). Thats why when you go to Africa you see Famines, Pestilences, and so much violence, but those things were already Prophecied by the LORD that they would happen. You have to study or understand Geneology in order to understand why certain things happen in the world to certain nations of people. Believe it or not, but the BIBLE tells every mans story.

Ya, the bible is full of that "you will be punished for the sins of your ancestors" crap. Seriously? You believe these things and still think this god is a loving god? You think it would be righteous for an innocent child to be tortured because his parents were bad people?

You have to understand something. GOD created us all, so he knows our thoughts and our hearts. The Egyptians didn't care about all the bad things that were happeing to the Hebrew children when they were enslaving them for 400 years. In fact when Pharoe died and another one arose he commanded that the Egyptians Kill all of the Hebrew boy babies because they were beginning to out number the Egyptians. The Children Of Isreal are GODS people "Literally". Thats why he say's if any Nation come against his people and do them wrong, then the same will be done to them. According to the BIBLE it says that the LORD is a Wonderful and a TERRIBLE GOD. People like to exaggerate when you hear them say things like GOD is "Only" peace and LOVE. That is a LIE. He's good to you when you "DO WHAT HE SAY'S, but he's bad to you when you dont.

GOD BLESS!
