Proof there is no god

One positive outcome of the tsunami is that some people are beginning to doubt their faith in an almighty and benign god that will protect and deliver them from evil.
I never had any doubt, of course, I'm not that kind of superstitious person, but hearing that the tsunami has killed tens of thousands of people, among them an inordinate number of children, while missing fat German crooks, really clinched it for me: He's not omnipotent or merciful, just a sad, vengeful, hateful, superannuated piece of the imagination.
