What do you suppose "the creator" had in mind when he allowed hundreds of thousands of people to be caught "unintentionally" in an earthquake and crushed to death?

If you seriously want to know, research and study the problem of evil. Every major religion addresses it, although they obviously have different ideas. (Note that I'm not saying the people who died were evil. The "problem of evil" is a study of why bad things happen in the world if the world was indeed created by God, ranging from evil acts to people dying in accidents.)

So why on earth did you raise the topic. Were you suggesting instead that the earthquake itself was "evil"? Seriously I can't believe this response is in any way helpful in solving the problems of earthquakes.

There are useful things which can be done, such as for example constructing buildings which can withstand earthquakes, or avoiding building in known danger zones.

Analysis of earthquakes shows that some locations separated by just a short distance are affected in very different ways, depending on the underlying geology. Surely such engineering or scientific studies will be far more helpful than pondering the imponderables.

Peter
