      ... when interpreting natural events, and yet ...

      They can't even follow what Jesus -- (their professed Saviour and SON of God, upon following whose word we either go to Heaven or literally burn in agony in Hell for all eternity) -- explicitly tells us to do in the Bible:

      "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."  

      "When you give a dinner, do not invite your friends or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. When you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, and the lame, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you."

      "Whatsoever you do for the least of my people, that you do unto me."

      "And he sat down, and called the twelve, and said unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all."

      "Blessed are the poor ..."

      "There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen, who feasted every day. At his gate lay a poor man who longed to satisfy his hunger with what fell from the rich man's table.  The poor man died and was carried away by the angels. The rich man died and was buried."

      "It is more difficult for a rich man to get into Heaven than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle."

        the Bible as they are in reading the Constitution.  More likely, they do not read either and just ingest the talking points without comprehension.
