    ...that there are some in Japan who say that the tsunami is punishment from the sea or from nature for Japan hunting whales?

    It would be good to know that such wackiness isn't just an American thing....

    I think only americans are that whacky :lol:

    In all honesty, I am sure it happens, however I was more concerned with the general overfishing and using Krill as land animal feed. People will try to blame anything, on anything, if they feel it can reenforce their argument.

    You guys are due a mega amount of bad karma in the form of the Yellowstone supervolcano. So pray that the Christians are wrong. :lol:

    Seeing as karma doesn't technically exist and God is not at all proven, I'd say it's a case of the typical utterly depressing stupidity found in the more hardcore of the religious rite, regardless of country but, unfortunately, coming of course mainly from North America. Makes about as much sense as any of the other bullshit people try to shove down my throat before I ask them to prove it so I can give a shit. :lol:

    Let me first preface by saying my heart breaks for the Japanese. I cannot imagine the horror, and my constant prayers go out to each of them during this disaster. I take no solice in the fact that I sleep in comfort while many struggle to find clean water and food.

    So, in response to your thread-title-question, I believe Billy Graham's daughter Ann Graham put it quite well. Though this is in reference to 9/11, I believe it can be adapted for any country/society:
