    Hi, i was just wondering what religious people think when a natural disaster only effects(or mainly effects) the people of their own religion?

    That they're being punished for their sins (however Minor).
    I'm talking about Islam only

    so if they see massive amounts of children and babies die, do they assume that these have also sinned or god has just smited with a broad brush?

    And why dont they question the vengeance against their own kind as opposed to the followers of other religions or non religious as surely this is a much larger sin

    for example the afghan earthquake of recent years, or the tsunami, i wonder why the majority of dead in both cases were muslims and many of the "infidels invaders" in afghanistan, or the alcohol drinkers in the tsunamis wake had better survival rates than the devout followers

    Why don't they question why their god hasn't taken the worse sinners first(in their eyes)

    i dont think the sinners are just killed. innocents can be killed but then theyd go to heaven. isnt goin to heaven better than living on this earth? death is a part of the natural order of things. people just have to accept that they can die at any moment. and its their choice where they go.

    so why were the afghan mothers weeping and not cheering, i truely believe its the having their cake and eating it situation. When non beleivers die its punishment and when believers die its gods way of rewarding

    seems very hipocritical

    yeah, thanks for the heads up, its just interesting from a psychological point of view

    Its the same with a child dying slowly from a terminal death, an athiest see's it as another proof for the lack of god and a theists thinks its god moving in mysterious ways
