The Gaza Conflict

Considering in Gaza, the sickening constant deaths of men, women, children, and babies, due to a serious degree to religious differences, does this point the non-existence of god? Or the misinterpretation of god's texts. Or a deistic god. Or is it all part of a grand design planned by god?

I am sure we will hear a wide

I am sure we will hear a wide range of explanations from every religious group around, but none that will be satisfactory enough for any of us who have the ability to think for ourselves.

No the suffering in the world

No the suffering in the world could not be permitted by a loving god.
Epicurus bitchslapped all religion near on 2000 years later theists still havent solved it so just insult your intelligence if you bring it up.

If there were a god, then

If there were a god, then this would prove that he is most likely not a benevolent one. Using religious texts as a guide, I don't see how anyone thought he was anyway.

Furthermore, if there were a god, I would think that he would come in and support his chosen people, whoever they are, by now. I get that he's supposedly been around forever and 3000 years isn't really as big of a deal to him as it would be to us, but come on now. If nothing else, I think it would be safe to hold off on the fighting until he gets back here. He's apparently not in a hurry.

It's not really my interest to waste my time trying to prove the non-existence of something in this amazing world of infinite(ly small) possibilities. However, it sure does point to the *irrelevance* of these gods that people are fighting about.
