Mwahaha. Mwahahahaha. Mwahahahahahahahahahaha!
The problem with attributing events to the Will of God is that such attribution can be turned around. For example, many are wont to say that the attack against The United States on September 11, 2001, was (Heaven forfend!) the Will of God. Then it would follow that the destruction of the Taliban–al-Qa’idah regime in Afghanistan, the deaths of thousands of terrorists, the incarceration and (supposed and alleged) violations against them at Camp X-Ray, the fall of Saddam Hussein, the destruction of his regime, the death of his sons, and even the slaughter of Lebanese in response to Hezbollah’s attacks against Israel — all of these were also the Will of God.
And so if it is the Will of God that so much suffering be inflicted on these Muslim peoples, what does it say about how these Muslim peoples are viewed by God? Let us take into consideration as well the decline of Muslim peoples, their poverty and backwardness, and their utter inability to do anything — this also has to be the Will of God, if He is as omnipotent as they say He is. So, what then?
The rational conclusion is inescapable.
P.S. to the Muslim peoples: We, the chosen and favored of God (just look at all the evidence in support of the claim!), are celebrating the resurrection of your new savior this Sunday, April 8. Join us!
