multiple choice question
Simple question: Labels: musings
What caused the 2004 tsunami that killed 230 000 people?
a) God was angry with evil sinners
b) God wanted to test people's faith
c) God was reminding us of his awesome power and telling us that he could take away life as easily as he gave it
d) Two tectonic plates crashed against each under causing an underwater earthquake that displaced a shit load of water very quickly
It's a simple question with a simple answer, no?
dr. tan, your answer is so complicated... i don't think teacher will expect any explanation for a multiple choice question...
I would go for d) but i also get comments from people
and F)because there are tons of bastards out there and we need a purging every now and then.
Actually d) the tectonic plates were rubbing against each other for a long time (not crashing) and eventually the stresses between them caused them to jolt forward, causing the sudden displacement of water.
