I watched 102 Minutes That Changed America on 9/11 (it's a History Channel special) and ever since I watched that I have been plagued by how anyone could possibly believe in God after seeing something like that.
I know that some people see God in the tragedies in this world, but I guess my brain just doesn't function like that. I can't see how an all loving God could possibly allow so many needless deaths throughout the history of the world. I just don't get it...?
And I'm not an atheist, I'm agnostic. (Meaning I believe that I don't know anything in regards to God's or Goddess's or any religion.)

I understand why some people have trouble seeing God when something that bad happens, but there were also a lot of good people who responded heroically to the tragedy
The Reverend Calvin Butts, a Baptist Minister, was quoted after 9/11 "The will of God is never seen in tragedies. The will of God is seen in our response to tragedy"
I don't pretend to understand why bad things happen, I have some beliefs as to why I think they do, but it doesn't make it any easier to watch when it happens. I do know that the worst and the best of mankind can be seen on that day.
