The Christian catch-all is that God moves in mysterious ways and man has free choice.

Religions and religious leaders cause all the problems.  The holy books are written in metaphor and therefore open to interpretation.

for some peace of mind

and therein is the power of the belief in god.

Many people need god - they cannot face the normal everyday events of life without having a crutch. It is very convenient to have a "god" to blame for the problems they face - it is very convenient to have a "god" to attribute the death on and infant child or a healthy adult to - the ever ready "they are with god now" eases the burden of grief for the weak who cannot face the reality of life and death.

The bs of god has been force fedd to the masses for thousands of years - it has served to create factions among the human population - it has served to create the human pool from which to draw the armies that slaughter each other in the name of god.

On the one hand we see all things good attributed to god and on the other we see all things bad attributed to either man or the "devil" - a constant clash of "good and evil" which has empowered the priesthoods and the monarchs and dictators who control the masses.

The is no doubt that god is a powerfull tool - and the is no doubt that man created god before god created man.

The Wolf is Your Shepherd.
Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.
