I guess I am living in a reality fantasy world, but I thought weather, such as hurricanes, did not come straight from God. But I am reading on the internet and hearing on the news that everyone from anti-womens’ rights groups to al-Qaeda thinks that God is up in heaven at the controls deciding that we are sinners and need a hurricane. New Orleans is a godless place and needs its come-uppance. Maybe Las Vegas will get a hurricane next because that’s a pretty godless place too. Strangely enough, I don’t think that will happen. Only sinners on coasts, especially coasts near warm water from June through November get this type of retribution.

Of course, if we blame this whole debacle on divine intervention then we don’t have to be responsible for our actions. Levees not being strengthened, bad emergency planning and worse response and maybe even global warming could not have had anything to do with it.

There were hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and floods before there were humans. I guess God was punishing evil ferns and dinosaurs.
