5 Reasons God Allows Tragedies Like the Sandy Hook Massacre To Occur

I find it strange that some people demand "proof" of God's existence before they will believe in Him. These same people believe in atoms, though they have never seen one.

Atoms actually can be seen through high-powered microscopes. God, however, can't be seen.

Science is a strange thing...in regards to your comment, they say that most matter is unseen in the cosmos and what we do see is still being argued and corrected all the time.

So put God in the Super Large Hadron Collider and see if any evidence of his existence can be detected. I'll wager none.

What's the evidence for "no God"?

A controlled experiment, with two alternate universes, one with God, one without, would have to be set up, run and measured, if valid Scientific Method were to answer about God being and God not being.
I can say that even the ability to question is a gift from God.
And only His opinion matters, when a lifetime is over. And I find his standards and ways to act in my Bible. That makes me a dangerous man. The movie 'A Man For All Seasons' illustrates why believers are such a pain to those in authority. Why Christianity is railed against by those who imagine they know how to improve the human condition.

LOL!! That's some ingenious scientific method you got there. First assume your hypothesis is true and then reject anything that contradicts it.

Lack of evidence *for* God is sufficient.

Plenty of Christians believe they can improve the human condition.

You confuse "seeing" something with empirical evidence. There are mountains of empirical data, even micrographic photos now, of atoms. Proof is a requirement of the rational mind.

I find it strange that you think your ignorance about atoms works on people who can actually reason. Perhaps you will show us why chemistry is a fraud and doesn't work.

Ah, reason....now using reason consider your universe as it declares the glory of God...

Reason as you describe it, is just another name for the god of Humanism.

Another anti-intellectual, I see.

As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way? If any of us had known what Adam Lanza was going to do, we would have done anything in our power to stop him, so why didn't God? All too often we tend to quote...
