God and natural disasters

  (25 March 11)

A new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute (US) taken just a week after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan reveals some astounding beliefs held by Americans (at least astounding to me).

Does God cause these events to occur to send messages to us? 38% say yes.

Does God allow these events to occur to send such messages? 60% of evangelicals think so.

One wonders about the conception of God held by such people, and how this is possible among people in the most developed country in the world.
