I was there and the only thing that saved me was taking shelter behind my huge boner.

"Thank God no one was killed. This truly was a miracle on Worthington Street," Mayor Domenic Sarno said at a press conference on Saturday.

Or... you know... God could have had the explosion not happen at all.

No no... god was smiting the building of sin, but showing mercy and divinity by seeing that nobody was hurt in the process. Also, everyone got an insurance check.... so its just god working in mysterious ways.

....right? guys? Where is everybody going?

First a house explodes in Indianapolis and destroys a shiat load of surrounding houses. Now this incident. Coincidence, I think not.

Had to check TFA because the building I work in relies on a strip club for some of its structural integrity.

There are a few theories out there as to what actually happened with the houses. And it is not what the media is reporting.

The way i understand it is; God COULD fix all of our problems in an instant. But, he lets us have the free will to make choices; all choices have consequences, some are not apparent till much later.

The reason god doesn't fix all of our problems is because it conflicts with free will.

/ either that; or god is a troll

My favorite explanation (full disclosure, I'm not of a Judeo-Christian background) is that God's mission is to sort all living souls into good (light) or bad (heavy). The only way this god can be sure is by letting the souls do what they want. The good ones go to heaven after the judging period, and the bad ones go to hell, or purgatory if he needs to do an overtime to get the final score.

At the end of everything, he'll have two neat stacks of good and bad, and he can proceed with throwing out the bad and building a universe of pure good.

I liked the article where the club manager was credited with helping save lives by making the dancers leave whether they were nude or not.

I think I read this series. Does it involve electing an underage prostitute to the position of God?

Okay I hear the skepticism on the miracle comment, but an explosion totaled 42 buildings and no one died. This isn't Pripyat; Springfield is an occupied city. That is a pretty amazing coincidence. What the hell do you think the Christian preacher is going to callit when a massive urban explosion doesn't kill anyone; most people would be pretty moved by it.

That doesn't ring a bell, but now I'm going to look for it. Sounds like something Gaiman would write.

Wouldn't it have been easier to stop the explosion in the first place? This God guy sounds nice and everything but he always seems to do things in the most complicated way.

Your version sounds a lot like the book series Incarnations of Immortality by Piers Anthony.

I'm not arguing it either way. On one hand, you're probably right about him not wanting puppets.

On the other, god is just as chaotic and capricious as his pagan counterparts.

What's a few buildings in the grand scheme of things? Please note that I'm not calling this divine intervention; it was just great fortune in the face of calamity.

Personally I'm right now feeling a LOT less like upgrading to a gas-powered, on-demand water heater,

No, actually Springfield is a lot closer to Pripiyat than one would figure.

Why can't God just make all souls good to begin with?

Too easy. You have to choose to be good or it's not worth anything.

I could be wrong. He might be putting all the bad souls together so he can party with them. What fun would a universe of Ned Flanders be?
