Small thing, maybe, but once again a plague of locusts is swarming in Egypt and Israel three weeks before Passover. For theists ( Christians, Jews, and Muslims in this case), I wonder whether you (1.)
think that the locusts once again are swarming from the right natural conditions in the area, and moving north in search of food, or whether (2.)
this locust plague, indeed smaller, is not controlled by God, as the biblical plague was
, or whether overall (3.)
you view all the swarms and weather etc. as a "God as mother nature" type of thing that is a conscious act by God, or a fourth possibility, and the reasons for your views?http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/07/world/middleeast/swarms-of-locusts-cross-into-israel-from-egypt.html?_r=0
On the up side, some considered the curse almost a blessing. The popular Channel 2 television news showed delighted Thai agricultural workers frying up locusts for a crunchy snack. The Israeli television crew munched on a few too, noting that locusts are considered kosher.
