If God didn't cause it, who did?

"Just as a loving father wouldn't hurt his children. God would not destroy members of His creation. "

Bible's pretty clear on God's intentions for the flood. Weren't those members of His creation?

If Satan did it, could God have prevented him? In other words, did God allow Satan to do it (like he allowed Satan to harm Job)? I think Scripture is quite clear the answer is yes, God allowed it, and nothing happens without his permission -- so in that sense, he DID do it.

David,

That's a faulty analysis. A government punishes criminals, but does not force them to commit crimes. The criminal is responsible for his own punishment, dealt by the government. Same with God. We sin, and get punishment; although God allows or even dispenses the punishment, it's the sinner's responsibility. It is true that all of nature is fully under God's control, but nature's effects on us are precisely made according to our the combination of our desires and merits.

It's a fairly complex subject, actually. When you go out to dinner, who causes the food to cook? The patron's decision to order the food is the most justifiable cause, despite the fact that the meal is actually prepared by a chef, who is directly employed by the restaurant's proprietor.

What a load of CR$P, I mean Hay.
God has created a paradise for Man on this Earth. When God calls man Home to him, he may use Age, a Fall from a horse or a storm. You will know not the time of your passing from this Earth, but you will pass by Gods Will, not Satan.
What a dipstick to blame every storm death on the load of Murphy/Choas/Satan
