I am sure that you have heard some religious leaders tell you why natural disasters were allowed to occur and many will add “it’s God’s will”. Personally, I do not believe that bad things happen because God wishes to teach us a lesson. I believe bad things happen because we need to learn a lesson but the reason behind it happening is because of us period. We fail to plan when bad things happen and many of us are so quick to dismiss it that we will adhere ourselves to any excuse. What would you say if I told you that the reasons natural disasters occur is not because it is God’s will but simply because we are failing to listen to what nature has been warning us about for so long. For example, there is a place called tornado alley in Oklahoma, yet there are those who still wish to build and reside within that stretch of land. Is the destruction unleashed by that tornado the result of God’s will or our ignorance to learn from our past mistakes? We build houses by taking from wild animals their only source of survival and still seem surprised when we see one in our back yard. It was their back yard first until we stole it and called it ours.
