I appreciate your thoughtful and courteous response. I will say that you are not the first to suggest that God had a hand in what happened to the thousands of people who were crushed and burned and suffocated in the WTC. And each time I have heard that theory i have been amazed that anyone would worship such a God. I would think it would be necessary either to exculpate God, or stop worshipping Him. And i would think a loud voice from the sky understood in every language would be a better and kinder wake up call than killing all those people without explaining. But I warned you that i'm not religious, and i know this is not the way you see it, and may even shock you.

BTW, as I understand it, "the chosen people" means simply that God chose the Jews to receive the Torah. I haven't talked to anyone about this in a long time, so if I have that wrong, correct me.
