i find it hard to believe in any higher power

...when Haiti, one of the poorest and most war-torn countries on the planet, gets hit by an earthquake.

That's what my cousin and I wholeheartedly agreed on last night over gin and dry lemons.

I also find it hard to believe in a higher power when shit in my life is going wrong.

And frankly, after that conclusion, who do you turn to?

Im in total agreeance, although I havent believed in a specific higher power for a long time.

Maybe the higher power sent the earthquake to get them to stop fighting and band together as a nation - just a thought

if i was a higher power i'd be smart enough to set the world up and let it run on its own devices. if the beings i create choose to live on a fault line, was it the higher power that 'sent' the earthquake or the peeps' choice to live in a place where there is potential danger ? look at the japanese: they know they are on a fault line and thus live in paper houses. if you swim at a lion drinking hole is it your fault you loose an arm/leg/life or the lion's? why do people keep on blaming God/Budah/Mohammed/Obama for their choices ? but thats just my opinion

I agree. Jack Daniels has supported me better through hard times than any higher power.

Of course if you are a fuckwit like Pat Robertson this whole incident is a sure sign of a higher power.

People always say there is a reason for everything. What possible reason could there be for my child dying, children being abused, things like Haiti happening etc etc. Higher power se gat!!

Harold - If I was a higher power I would be smart enough to create a world that didn't *have* fault lines.
