Good thing I don't believe in god.

Huh. First lightning strikes the Basilica, now this.

If you believe in God then this cannot be a coincidence you're an idiot.

Fixed that for subby.

Of what use is it to believe in such things?
 
2013-03-05 09:05:31 AM
So god is just arbitrarily late and gets around to Earthquakes to show his displeasure when he feels like it. And we attribute it to him being upset about the pope just so long as it falls within a short time period.

But apparently, it's crazy to think maybe its just a geological coincidence.

An unexpected earthquake in Italy? Obviously the jail sentences last year weren't enough of a deterrent for not predicting a quake.

Italy should execute a few seismologists immediately to act as a warning to others they MUST predict quakes with 100% accuracy.

So, wait, the pope moved into a place called Castle Gandalf?
 
2013-03-05 09:15:00 AM
Well, that's if you believe God sends messages to humans by causing natural disasters, and that natural disasters are only ever consequences of those messages.

Yup.  An all-powerful omniscient omnipotent god communicates with his favorite species of monkeys using vague weather events.  Makes sense to me...

An earthquake in Italy?  Must be an act of god and nothing to do with the fact that it's one of the most geologically active places on earth.

It's not like it was an earthquake that happened the moment he stepped in the house or wasn't felt outside of the estate or killed the dude. Basically your god showed a mild, vague state of moderated, late in the day, pseudo-displeasure ? Your god is pathetic.

Even if he got hit by a bolt of lightning as he stepped out of the front door, it would still be a coincidence.


Why yes, my god is Chaos, why do you ask?

Obama did it.

Pretty sure Gandalf is real and quite mad that they named the place similarly.

Well,it's hardly unprecedented. In 1984, David Jenkins - a man known for his somewhat controversial (some would argue heretical) beliefs - was consecrated as Anglican Bishop of Durham. Just three days later, York Minster (70 miles away...) caught fire after being struck by lightning. This was seen by some as God's angry response to the appointment, because it seems not only is God vindictive, he's a lousy shot too.

Sorry guys, I was doing my earthquake dance.  My bad

Dead for Tax Reasons: Yes, the earthquake only hit the pope's house and none of the rest of rome


FTFAVarious Italian news sources reported Sunday that a mild earthquake had struck Rome and surrounding areas, including Castel Gandolfo, the former pope's temporary home.

It's the first sentence of the farking article.

To be fair the Pope's god insists he is three people.  I'm not sure how much more redundant you can get.
 
2013-03-05 10:16:06 AM
If it were really God sending a message, I would think he could do better than a 2.5.

I believe in God after a fashion, and both I and the Jesuits would argue that God doesn't (directly) cause earthquakes.
