On Deity and Justice

Look at the Crusades, Armenian genocide, Hitler's final solution, Stalin's genocide, Pol Pot, every person who starves to death while nations throw out food, multinational corporations paying starvation wages while raking in billions, rape, war, child abuse...

No one's god has solved those problems, or any number of them. Humanity needs to come to terms that we are alone in the deity sense, whether completely or effectually. We are responsible for enabling justice or inhibiting justice. Pain, suffering, hate, death, destruction, they all happen because WE let them. So long as we pass the burden of justice fulfillment off on one's god, we will not have solutions to these problems.
