Theists say that "God" sees everything, and knows what a person is destined to do. If that were so, then why does "He" allow the atrocities that have taken place for so many thousands of years, including acts of "Himself," ( hurricanes, tornado's, earthquakes, tsunamis, mudslides, typhoons, monsoons, etc. are called "acts of god") especially against defenseless children?? For example, and this is of course only the tip of the iceberg, that would mean that "God" knew that Adam Lanza was going to go into that first grade classroom and slaughter 20 children, and 7 others. Why did 'he" allow that...where was "His" presence for the "miracle?" I am 100% sure that if there had been any survivors, that "God" would have gotten the thanks for that... but tragically,we cannot say that. If "He" truly knows what is going to happen, why dosen't he PREVENT these things in the first place, instead of allowing the tragedy to happen, then get the credit if anyone is lucky enough to survive? ( what if there were no survivors, then what??) Theists will always have an appropriate excuse for these things, no matter how ridiculous. They go to church to learn how to explain away reason, and logical questioning...making themselves feel comfortable with things that they know deep down don't make any sense.
