9/11 - Ten years on and still no closure

The tenth anniversary of the ´crime of the century´ draws near and the debate rages on. The causes and reasons are still being discussed, analyzed and misunderstood by most people.

Frighteningly, the same conditions still exist. There are no reasons to believe it can´t happen again. And if it can, given time, it probably will.

The physical scars at ground zero are disappearing slowly, the mental scars never will. And they shouldn´t, lest we forget the day that changed the world. The day the word Islam became synonymous with terrorism 

My previous post on the subject, 9/11 Where was He?  still draws lots of readers and its no wonder, given the magnitude of the case.
As time goes by I no longer need to ask that question. He was not there because He does not exist! If He did exist He wouldn´t have let it happen. How could He?

If He did exist His own creations would not have been capable of such evil. After all, according to the Bible we were all created in His image.

How silly.



  1. I thought as I got older I may find that I believed that there is some sort of ultimate being looking after us all, but no. Instead I find myself heading the other way. How would any sort of all powerful being allow these things to happen? Good post Joe.

  2. So true! Vigorously nodding my head in agreement!
