"Weakly" message? --- shame on you, John, you couldn't resist could
you? :-)

Regarding the complaint about a God of love causing death and suffering,
Christians who read their Bibles didn't need evolution to introduce us
to that discomfort. The Old Testament is full of it. Anyone finds a
God who presides over calamity to be unconscionable had better refrain
from reading their Bibles. Doesn't mean we have a good answer for it
except to dismissively assert that God is sovereign --- just means
anyone who gets shook up over this "new" challenge from science
apparently hasn't adequately withstood the shaking from within their own
