      Thanks Todd.

      Now I am convinced that any so-called "Acts of God"
      should correctly be relabeled, say possibly as "Acts
      of the god of this world", since the evil one is in
      fact the efficient cause of natural disasters, not our
      Heavenly Father. Just as the PC crowd pushed for the
      inclusion of masculine names being assigned to
      hurricanes a couple decades ago, maybe ?someone? will
      start an active lobbying campaign to change this
      popular but misleading term in congress.
