Just a Bit of a Rant

Churlita's latest post (as of this writing) got me thinking about fate and free will and the reasons why things happen.  Are there really forces at work around us making tornadoes or hurricanes wipe out entire areas of the country.  Yes.  It's called nature and it is, for the most part, unpredictable.  As humans, we want to think we're in control and that our actions can influence the natural world.  It's a flaw that only we possess.  The tornado that Churlita recalls in her post was a force of nature caused by atmospheric conditions that are favorable to such a phenomena, it was not the evil sinners that brought it upon themselves.  Here's a fact:  Nature happens because it can.
