Oh, so you _do_ claim to know the plan of god?  Wonderful -- please
explain to us why the gods kill people with hurricanes, tornadoes,
disease, famine, and so forth?

You might suggest such, but such a suggestion is hardly evidence that what
you suggest is fact.  Put bluntly, I see no reason to believe you.

Unless you understand the plan, how can you know you are part of it?

> The fact that I am part of it is!

A "fact" which is not a fact, but merely an unsupported claim, isn't much
of a fact at all, now, is it?

This all you got?
