I did a search on line for this subject and found numerous articles quoting many people, e.g. Gov Rick Perry, that the BP spill is an unpreventable Act of God. I did not find this topic at mylot. I cannot cut and paste, however one article is at San Antonio Gas Prices site. Others are done with a general search. What do you think of this theory?

I haven't read that as of yet, but I will look it up. But, there is something that royally ticks me off about all of this, did you know that BP drilled for oil right next to the gulf of Mexico's fault line? They sure did, and on our local news they only showed it for a split few seconds, but they showed where some volcanic rocks were washing up on shore in Louisiana. That should tell us something. I also looked for it on ATS, and found out the truth the were 100 feet from the fault line, where they drilled.

Herro pmbhuntress09 I had not read that juicy piece of info. That is all we need, the potential of hurricanes and now the potential of a volcano, creating tsunami's. I am very apprehensive of each area that like like it will hit the gulf, even as a mild tropical storm, let alone a hurricane. Hurricanes would ground all ships involved in the clean-up and push the oil on shore even faster. So far Texas is not in watch area, but a hurricane could change that.

No matter how you put it, its not a good thing. A good friend predicted lots of things to happen this year, this is why I keep a close eye on things, we have all been keeping an eye on quake activity as well, because many places are waking up that ave not shaken in over 2000 years. So it makes you wonder if all of the 2012 bull is real. I know I am starting to wonder. I don't even want to know about a hurricane, we are expecting 15 this year in the Atlantic, that wont be good.

Hi Patsy What do you want to believe? I did a search of seismic activity for the past couple months and fine nothing in the gulf region. I wonder where this info came from that they are saying the oil spill is an act of God. This plain and simple was a mistake on the part of BP and it is time that we all come together and make them admit it and pay the piper. You have to search so many places to get the true story that I am about ready to give up and just say to heck with it and never buy anymore gas from BP or do any business with any more of their stores.

Wahoo manleyjoe I read the actual articles in papers like Washington Post and others. I am a member of GasPrice and it was referenced there also. Most newspaper articles said that Gov Perry was part of this belief pattern. Believe me I checked since we vote for Gov this year. I don't think we have any BP here, or at least not where we buy gas. I thought about boycott when we travel, however most of the BP stations only sell the gas. They are small business owners, so who would I hurt, BP or the small business owner. If you would like I can research and get you the URL's of some articles. By the way, I am now addicted to mylot. I love it and am having a ball responding, creating discussion sand rating comments. Prosperous mylotting

Herro Spaceman17 Thank you for your response. I too am a Christian. I do not believe it was an act of God. I believe that the spill was the fault of BP, faulty construction and failure to listen to warning signs. A failure to have a an adequate plan in place and the equipment to work the plan for deep well drilling. That is my opinion and everyone has one. Prosperous mylotting

Sure, on one hand there is the unpreventable act of God. On the other hand there is the being prepared for the possibilities so that a course of action has already been planned. Can we really say they were prepared?????

I don't think BP was prepared to deal with a deep well accident, nor did the people manning the well listen to the warning signs. I read in another place that the well is very close to a fault line. I believe that the possible acts of God are the earthly catastrophes, like earthquake, extensive rain causing floods and mud slides, volcanoes, etc. BP drilled the well, knew there was a risk, and failed to deal with warning signs. That is man's weakness.
