Theological Understanding

Every thirty seconds on the news I see a new story about a murderer, a burglar, a child 
molester.
It has been said that we cannot know the face of God/ess,
But using scientific methodology, I would 
venture that this burning bush that we call earth was set ablaze by an omnipotent child with 
a magnifying glass, laughing at the blackend husks of ants and dinosaurs, neanderthals and 
Newtons. 
It would be a foolish theory if you could prove to me that violence isn't cyclical, a cascading 
and tumescent force which only gains strength as it moves along.
