nope, these are natural geographical phenomena. You get earthquakes due to interaction of the earths plates. Tornados happen when rising warm air mixes with air moving in another direction higher in the atmosphere making the air spin. Landslides are generally human caused problems due to deforestaion and weakining slope stability. typhoons or hurricanes are due the natural way the air moves around in the warm parts of the warld which allows them to build up without dissipating until they hit land. Floods are again generally human caused problem either from building on flood plains or removing the natural vegetation so that water travels to rivers much quicker than previously

nope, not god's punishment. this is more the result of people's abuse of their natural resources. god gave us everything we need to survive this world. but, instead of using them wisely, we abused these resources. we hurt mother earth so much, instead of take care of it.

Why would anyone think that the being that is supposed to be protecting them would cause a horrible disaster to happen to them? See, this is why I think there is no god. If he truly is as people say, a beneficent, loving god, he wouldn't let this kind of thing happen to his people. No matter where you live, the world does something wild and crazy simply because its changing all the time.

God's punishment? Man has been on this earth for a short period of time, and from the day that Adam and Eve took their first tiny little breaths I GUARANTEE YOU that there were tornados and hurricanes occuring on this planet. So the moment that Adam was born... your saying god started punishing him?? So my answer to you is NO. I don't think any of that has anything at all to do with GOD punishing us. He is a vengeful god but hes not an immoral god. Why would making bad weather punish us??
