    I suspect there are two answers.

    The first is from Modern Philosophy. It logically deduces that God is preoccupied with more important things in the rest of the Universe.

    The second is from Christianity, although any other Theist religion would say the same. It says that God needs our help to help the helpless. And if we don't help them then the helpless will die.

    You are spot on! That said, many simply do not help themselves and that is a tough nut to crack! But in essence you hit the nail on the head.

    That shows a complete lack of understanding but that's to be expected, it's the norm......... Apparently the concept of 'free will', all that that concept entails and it's resultant consequences (for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction, cause and effect) is foreign to you. :dunno:
