The terrorists who caused September 11 did it for God.

Why did it happen?
Since God is supposed to be in control of everything i mean, why would he let this happen?

The will of God has been the reason for hundreds of horrendous acts over throughout history.

Are you saying you think God wanted all these horrible things to happen?

People tend to forget that God has not been calling the shots. As of now "The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." (1 John 5:19)

I meant more than that LittleK

The attack of September 11 was a religious act.

It was an example of how people can be motivated by faith to do barbaric acts. This is the problem with faith... it demands that you accept things that a rational human being wouldn't accept because it is the will of God.

This is why I no longer accept things simply because religious people or religious scriptures tell me to do. People need to wrestle with what is right and wrong and take responsibility. The most important part of this is to be able to question your own beliefs and action.

Too often religion-- by providing a narrow "truth" gets in the way. If you know "God's will" you don't need to question your actions. At times this has catastrophic results.

Faith is not the solution to the evil of September 11. Rather faith is a big part of the reason it happened.

How do you know that? Are you also a god?

Al-Qaeda knew that such an ambitious project would only be successful if god willed it to be.

Clearly, he did.

Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.

Are you saying that it was God's will that Al-Queda was successful in their attack on America?

How do you know that? Are you God? Not that an atheist could aspire to be such.

I am saying that the attack on September 11 was immoral and inexcusable. It doesn't matter whether it was God's will or not.

God's will is irrelevant when it comes to right and wrong.

welcome to A2K juliejulie.

If you imagine there are gods, then there are a million questions to ask about the lack of involvement any of them ever have in anything.

Are they unable to help? Are they unwilling? Are they playing a game? Are they asleep? Is it a test?

Of course, if there never were any gods at all, then everything makes perfect sense.
