    ok first of all im not being offensive to any religion, i m just confused... i just want to know what other people think about the fact that God created the world. My question is that why did God created this world like this? i mean earth is a good planet to live but if God really created the world why did God created it in a way that harm people and animals and other things, like volcanos and hurricanes. and did God created the religions too? i mean God created every thing and that means he created the religions. but why? why God only didnt created thier own one religion and did God even created the people who are from other religions?

    ok im a lot messed up but i just dont understand these stuff.... any one wants to help me out....

    Thanks smiley - smiley

    God created the natural disasters for a reason do you know the Atmosphere would be a very different. if volcanoes didnt erupt all these 'disasters' happen for a reason i'm not really sure of the science behind it but we need them to happen ! ask ur science teacher!god created these natural disasters why do you need to know 'why' god knows best so if he created them then they were obviously for a reason.

    god didnt create religion! religion is of what happened. its hard to explain but imagine i told u that i made a cake (random) and i said it weighed 50 grams and then you wrote it down that my cake weighs 50grams but when someone read that, they couldnt read your writing and thought it weighed 4 grams so told someone else who misheard and thought it weighed 30 grams. did i make 3 different cakes or one? i made one, is it my fault that all these other measurement came into existence?? nope same with religion ! there is ofcasue one religion and the message got changed along the way. god didnt create numerous religions. we did ! (humans)
    god gave us free will!
    im Muslim btw ! - and i beleive that Islam was the only relgion taught by all the messengers of god!

    hope this helps ! smiley - smiley

    Of course they are true.. Let me give you an example of Islam, we muslims follow the teachings of the Quran and the hadith (the saying of the prophet Muhammad) those teachings have been passed down through generations and generations without anything changing. We did not create Islam Allah (God) wanted the religion so by his command the religion came to existance. Hope this answers your question. smiley - biggrin.

    Just want to ask a random question... Are you a fan of One direction. smiley - smiley

    God created the world for everyone to be happy, unfortunately like in the story Adam & Eve, they went against Gods rules and took a bite from the forbidden apple tree. This is a good example as what i am trying to say, is that not everyone is going to go by the rules and be a good citizen to the world. I have no religion at all but this is what I personally think. God created the world for us but we abandon it. Volcanoes & Earth quakes are just natural hazards, God doesn't want them to happen but they do because that's life. He and anyone else cannot stop them.
    Hope I helpedsmiley - biggrin

    God can stop hurricanes and all that stuff but he won't !!! because we need them.
    like for example we always want sunshine but god knows we must have rain!!!!1
    we must have these 'disasters' !
    allah knows best!

    I don,t know the first religion that came in existance, but what I know is that every prophet that was sent was sent to different groups of people to teach them about their religion, let me give you an example Jesus was sent for the religion christianity.

    Well the world is our actual Goddess, and like any human she experiences anger and hurt. Volcanoes and earthquakes are a natural part of her, just like the Seasons providing us with new plants and fruit. We're damaging the only beautiful place we can live on at the moment, so why she should treat us kindly is anyone's guess. The point of the Earth is that it is a privilege and not a right. I'm not saying if everyone stopped hurting this Earth then earthquakes would stop, but in some ways you have to balance the negatives with the positives. Look at volcanoes, the ash is rich with nutrients and can often help things grown; in the same way, the flooding of the Nile for example has provided people with food for thousands of years.

    I heard an excellent quote from someone; believing in a God/Gods is akin to everyone driving different cars to the same place, we just all have a different way and method of getting from A to B. I think as long as everyone does good things, then in effect we all believe in the same thing (more or less), but your own faith shouldn't dictate to others what they can or can't do.

    well as a christian, I believe that God is all powerful and so made the world and in the world there aree two types of evil; natural and moral.
    Natural evil is natural disasters which occur through the cause of no-one. God could stop these disasters, but everything happens for a reason, god has a reason for everything occuring. Moral evil occurs through our own free will. God cannot controll people, it is our own concious choice what we do, so when murders occur, it cannot be helped by God. If God were to stop moral evil, we may aswell not have free will, we would all just be puppets controlled by God to do the right thing, therefore, we have the choice to do good or bad, just some people choose bad. With things like floods, they are sometimes caused as a result of moral evil e.g. burining fossil causes global warming which melts ice which raises sea level which causes floods,. Therefore somethimes it's our own fault for these disatsters that occur.
    that's just my opinion though
