Rev, I'm curious about your view on certain lesser cosmic events. For example, it may be that somewhere in the 100 billion observable galaxies, intelligent species - perhaps even human-like - have been eradicated by, for example, supernovae. Does that sound at all loving and GOD-like? Gentle, or humane? That's not intended to sound rhetorical - I fully expect you to answer in the affirmative.
