@neologist,
human suffering is due to human will and action on the part of the human being. Long time since this post was replied to. If you remove the spirit of god from the world there will be even more chaos. There is a freewill of mankind given to humans to either accept god or reject him. Everything about god and humans relies on the human decision.
As God, Adonai has said, "come let us reason together" Isaiah 1:18

And my human decision is that we would be better off without your silly propaganda.

I this crappy religious stuff was not shoved at us all the time by such nutcases as yourself, the world would be a much better place and chaos would subside..

@Francis,
I agree! Those same nut-cases now try to impose their religious beliefs on the rest of society such as discrimination against gays and lesbians (by restricting the use of a word "marriage"), prolife (impose their will on women who they don't even know or care about), and the teaching of creation in science classes (creationism is religion and has no place in science).

They are dangerous to our freedoms.

@cicerone imposter,
Right on, C.I.
I would like to think that if there were a benevolent and all powerful God, it would intervene in our lives to make them better. But since there is most likely no such being, we must learn to deal with our suffering on our own--as is taught in Buddhism.

@neologist,
Job 2:4 -But Satan answered Jehovah and said: "Skin for skin, and the man will give everything he has for his soul.
I agree with you.
Are you Jehovah Wittness ?

I seem to remember that in the modern Christian bible - the Christian God promised mankind free will above pretty much every other commitment.

This means good and eveil, planned and random events can occur and God is bound by his promise giving us free will to very largely not intervene. If he keeps saving us someones free will is trampled always getting trampled.

@neologist,
But god has intervened; look at all the natural disasters that have killed untold thousands (maybe millions if we include starvation) just in the past century.

Long story short
God creates man, man rejects God and wishes to rule himself, God says hmmkay you got a few thousand years to prove that you can't.

God doesnt intervene because mankind said thanks but no thanks. Not to say that he won't in his own time, but thats up to him.

@Smileyrius,
How is it that you know these 'facts'?

Then again, aren't you the one telling us elsewhere that you see Elvis, too?
