  • Gods/Goddesses of any kind dont give you cancer. YOU give it to yourself by ignoring the warnings of being out in it too long,etc.

    DUH!

  • that is not exactly true about ignoring the warnings. Are you really going to say everyone who has cancer received skin cancer sat in the sun? Didn't wear sunblock?

  • Or were farmers, like my grandpa.
    Sun exposure is a big cause of it either via working or not using sunblock.

    Either way....its not cuz of a God or Goddess. That was the main point.

  • i don't believe there is a sun god or goddess. I believe in the Creator of the Sun. Why we get cancer, i do not know.

  • There are several sun gods & a few sun goddesses. S/he does not give people skin cancer. Even if s/he were a sentient being he couldn't be blamed for handing out skin for the fun of it. Billions of people from the beginning of humanity have spent their whole lives exposed to the sun & not gotten skin cancer. You might have noticed that that particular problem has grown exponentially with the damage to the earth's atmosphere, and with the growth of cancers in general. Skin cancer & the role the sun plays in causing it is most likely (though this is not yet completely figured out with all factors accounted for) a result of the changes in our environment (both natural & man-made changes) and our bodies.

    Ra did not invent tanning beds, money hungry people with no respect for human life did.

  • Cancer has been around since the beginning, just because there wasn't a name for it doesn't mean it wasn't around. It's simply a malfunction in cell production. No God, Goddess or otherwise causes it.

  • That's kinda like asking why does the Christian god give us cancer. It has nothing to do with the god/dess in question. It is simply a persons body "malfunctioning."

  • The Gods don't give out cancer like it's candy. IF you are afflicted with Cancer it's because of one of two things, you were geneticly weaker to it or you weren't living the way you should. There are many many ways to avoid skin cancer and to catch and treat it early in most cases. If however you don't live by those simple "natural" laws that will allow you to care for yourself how can you blame the Gods for your cancer? That's like saying that drowning victims are held under by the Gods or that those that die in a Tornado are killed by the gods. Nature has consiquesces, that's just how it goes!

  • LMFAO I love you NotPanicking. You took the words right out of my mouth.

    As everyone else said, they don't give us cancer. Shit happens, and in some cases, people are just stupid.
