Journalist and author Kimina Lyall, who survived the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, deals with weird questions from freelancer Steve Dow:

In her book, Lyall raises – but avoids answering – the God question. As in, is there a God, and did God create the tsunami? She pauses.

As well she might. What sort of question is that? Lyall’s eventual answer is as reasonable as you might expect, given that she’s apparently being interviewed by some kind of Australian Borat. Next, Dow attempts another religious inquiry:

Could global warming have played a part? “It was an earthquake!” she says. “I’m not a scientist, but I don’t see how global warming can create earthquakes.”

Naturally, Dow’s piece ran in the Sunday Sun-Herald, a Fairfax publication.
