    I personally think so. Its hard to see it when you're going through something but I really do believe there is a purpose. Even if the something 'good' that resulted from your bad didn't benefit you. Like when I was 15 and got hit by a car while I was on my bike. Its easy to think 'why did this happen?' But I mean really i didn't die and I wasn't that seriously hurt but maybe that driver would have hit someone else in the future and killed them, but because they hit me they're more careful now...or like my mother's miscarriage. If she had had the baby her and my dad would have stayed together longer, and remained unhappy. But because she didnt have the baby they divorced. That may not sound like a good thing, but I want my parents to be happy.

    Do any of you have a story where something good came from something bad? Or could have?

    God doesn't have anything to do with it. There is always a reason, and the simplest is Cause & Effect. Even so, that doesn't mean that everything is planned, or destined to happen. Healthy people get cancer, appliances break and buildings fall to the ground. These are just examples, and you can find a reason for all of them, but only on a base mechanical level.

    Oh, and good post Chargette, I'll remember that one.

    No, I don't believe everything happens foe a reason. There are some things that I think have no rhyme or reason to them at all. Others may disagree but I guess it's a matter of how you choose to look at things.

    There is no justice in life, only in death. Death is a justice too wonderful to comprehend, a reward I don't deserve. I endure because I respect death, I live to become worthy of death.

    The planet is being helped due to people starving to death daily. It keeps down the population to an extent.

    Yessiree, thank fate for such occurrences.

    Is it better to feed the starving and overpopulate the world, or leave them to die so the rest can survive?
