    These things happen Ex P. God does not command them too happen although he does let them happen. Natural disasters arent evil per se. They dont discriminate as too who they maim or kill. As for evil in the world, Simone Weil answers this in terms of afflicition.

    Weil's concept of affliction goes beyond simple suffering, though it certainly includes it. Only some souls are capable of truly experiencing affliction; these are precisely those souls which are least deserving of it—that are most prone or open to spiritual realization. Affliction is a sort of suffering plus, which transcends both body and mind; such physical and mental anguish scourges the very soul.

    War and oppression were the most intense cases of affliction within her reach; to experience it she turned to the life of a factory worker, while to understand it she turned to Homer's Iliad. (Her essay The Iliad or the Poem of Force, first translated by Mary McCarthy, is a uniquely powerful piece of Homeric literary criticism, and of persistent interest to students of ancient literature.) Affliction was associated both with necessity and with chance--it was fraught with necessity because it was hard-wired into existence itself, and thus imposed itself upon the sufferer with the full force of the inescapable, but it was also subject to chance inasmuch as chance, too, is an inescapable part of the nature of existence. The element of chance was essential to the unjust character of affliction; in other words, my affliction should not usually—let alone always—follow from my sin, as per traditional Christian theodicy, but should be visited upon me for no special reason.

    Nobody truly knows whether God exists or not. Nobody knows where we go when we're dead (or when we're dreaming) ...

    In fact, natural disasters do discriminate. You are much more likely to be killed by one if you're poor.

    “I wish you wouldn’t keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly; you make one quite giddy!”
    “All right,” said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.

    Yaaarrr, The Cap`n do know where we do go when we be dead ---- as Genesis 3 V 19 says ,
    " From out of the ground ye were formed so tis back to the ground ye shall return."
    In otherwords = Burried ,interred , ---- Dust to dust ,ashes to ashes.
    As for an immediate after life ? -- Ecclesiastes 9 v 5 says that --
    " The Dead are concious of nothing at all."
    So me Hearties, twill be a long time we are gone,
    Dust can dry yer throat,-- " So break out the Grog, drink up and be merry . "

    Before you start patting your self on the back too much buddy, If you hadn't created disease, polio, smallpox, illness and injury, back ache, clouds and bad weather and all the other stuff you have in your list, then you wouldn't have had any need to create all this other stuff. If you ask me you are only making work for your self....... Work smarter God, not harder......

    ps... cut you some slack? build a bridge and get over yourself.... Almighty my arse.
