What if God is behind the natural disasters?

Why should it be Satan?

Because the OP believes so.

Even Art Bell wasn't that wacky, but like Evets, he was a form of entertainment.
Good ole Art, lol, He is entertaining, no doubt.

The spectacular arrogance and self-centered conceit of Christianity tells us that a weather event is Satanic because? Why, because it had some bad effects on some humans, many of whom were too stupid to get out of town when warned.

Tsunamis, tornados, volcanos and earthquakes have significant positive effects on many ecosystems, stirring up nutrients, relieving stesses in geo-structures that are destined to fail in the future anyways, and a near-infinite number of other interpretations. Factual, measured and historically demonstrated results.

Only the sacrosanct and dogmatic, desperately seeking godly meaning where there clearly is none, in order to scare the logically illiterate peasants back into obedience, will blurt out interpretations where there are none, all for the purpose of glorifying non-existant deities.

Let's face it, folks: there's equal proof that Zeus is at work here. Go with it!

Indeed, the idea that natural disasters are the work of Satan shows a huge ignorance about nature and how it works.

Do Christians not have any appreciation for nature in their religion? Or does it always have to go back to the same old song and dance of God, Satan, Sin........ ad nauseum.

All of us in SA have our thumb print and a 2 dimensional bar code (1024 bytes of information) The next batch of cards will likely have an RFID chip.

Or you can just look at the license upside down to get 999 or 919

Shortly after I moved I noticed the streetlight had blown or quit coming on for a few days and when I went out to check the pole number to report it I was a little surprised the number was 09990 . By the next night the light started working again and has been fine since.

Default "Mooo - (plop)"

No, Seeker, I think, more appropriately, it's "Amazing hay".

Agreed, effie. C-D has been very irregular here as well. Perhaps it's a weather-related thing? Satan sees guys like me and wants us silenced!

Seeker; really liked the weather cycle graphic! It's quite unlike the stuff I see the kids innocently reading at my wife's Church's Sunday School. Now I know why! Weather being Satan's work and all, any rational explanation MUST have an ulterior motive!

Man, just when I was getting kinda bored with religious rants by good old C34, along comes another "ringer" to entertain us. (Which may be a sorry note on our sad and lonely lives, non?)

I even rep'd "evets"; gotta encourage this!

BTW, "17271": 7 minus 1 = 6. 1 minus 7 = 6! 7 minus 2 + 1 = 6! There it IS! 666. OhmyGawd! Run!

"We saw devils dancing where none were before; we heard their incessant singing to draw us into their circle of deceit. The thunder clapped o'rhead, and good folk swooned against their wills!"

Evets, please interpret this lyric for me please! What did it's author mean?
