So, No Explanation Why Children Die? And No Protection?

Harvey, I can not respect much a person who says that death of children is God's plan (either via Evel as a part of "higher plan" or as directly punished by God because they did not do homework).

I am more inclined to explain earthquake as a crack at the moment when rising stress in rock exceeds Young's modulus. (Is not that obvious for you guys? Where is "hand of God" here?)

And even if I was a believer, I would say that punishing children is immoral and God is making HUGE mistake doing this (allowing it happen). (Basicly it means that God simply CAN NOT prevent earthquakes and death of innocents. Which means that He is extremely weak if existent.)

So, I'd rather stick with science to explain eartquakes and to reduce their damaging result (modelling them mathematically and building mathematically pre-calculated network of early warning system based on location of most frequent crackings, speed of waves, location of densely populated areas, etc).

Allowing to kill innocents is "higher plan of allmighty God", huh?
