"Lightning is an electrostatic breakdown event. It does not come from God."


Something wrong with this thinking....As an Eagle Scout and a 53 year old grandpa...I will stand by reason until otherwise proved wrong...laws of nature are established by God...what He does with them is out of my control. How we abuse them are up to us. Let it be known that electrostatic breakdown was NOT invented by mankind...nor the terrorist...the event is indeed an action of God....and for good reasons...

God not invent the laws of nature. God, being real, depends on them for His existence.

The event is not an action of God, it happens purely, because of the local conditions. Those conditions are not set up by God. In this case it's just weather. There's nothing more to it.

Creationists and Intelligent Design types usually complain that evolution is based on materialistic understandings of how the natural world works.

One can't have it both ways--either G-d intervenes directly in every event or there are materialistic explanations. Perhaps this was an indication of supernatural power, but more likely it has a material explanation based on science and some bad luck and randomness. If not, then it must be due to an ID's supernatural's design or pre-destination.
