    If there is a God who crested us , then why did he create germs , viruses ans other such things that harm and kill us?Why also are there no instructions about these things in the bible, and don't give me that mosaic law crap, where does it mention for example boiling water or spreading germs through human contact, the most important things you can do agianst catching nasty dieseases?

    Dunno - ask GOD

    Not all bacteria is harmful though, some is actually quite useful. You know - those deserts you can get with active strains swimming through .... very good for the stomach.

    Depends what you mean by germs? Certain strains have been known to mutate over the years and become quite revolting when applied to the human form. But where they began and why they adapted is open to debate I would say.

    We also have a tendency to create new strains ourselves. Everytime you spray your sink down with "gunk-killer X" ... remember that the wee fellas lurking there are slowly learning how to adapt and eventually will be sitting there flicking Vs at you :o)

    Also don't forget the immune system that in most people does actually repel most germs'n'things. The immune system is a marvel when studied.

    Read Genesis 3:17-19 "....cursed is the ground because of you;.......It will produce thorns and thistles for you...."

    *We should not think to exclude diseases as well within this "cursed earth". Remeber that death itself entered the world through sin.

    God bless,

    The physical creation reflects the state of heaven at the time God created the physical.

    GOOD and BAD.

    Bacteria are simply scavengers of nature. They serve to break down organic matter and adapt themselves to perform the task at hand. After all other participants in the food chain have done their jobs, or not completed their jobs, bacteria step in to clean up the leftovers.

    Because the first man and woman had bodies totally resistant to germs which perform many good operations such as decomposing leaves; only after Satan caused human suffering and death did germs become able to harm humans.

    But did you read this?

    If there were no germs, there would be no need for insecticide.

    If there was no ineed for insecticide, there would be no need for factories to make insecticide.

    If there were no factories making insectricide, there would be thousands out of work.

    So, you sere, germs benefit the environment and are socially beneficial!

    Cheers, Ozzie
