Links: Does God Cause Disasters? 60 Minutes on the Gates Foundation; TED Talk by Polio Campaign Director; Easter

By Brian Lowther

According to this Christianity Today Poll a majority of evangelicals believe God causes disasters.

Here is a 60 Minutes report on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Though it starts as a personal interest story, with tidbits here and there about their AIDS vaccine and their Malaria eradication plans, it ends dramatically in a Polio Ward in Dehli. Quoting Bill Gates, "We'll take the diseases of the poor, where there is no market, and we'll get the best scientists working on those diseases."

Dr. Bruce Aylward, head of the polio eradication programme at the World Health Organization, gives this TED talk where he lays out the plan to continue the scientific miracle that ended polio in most of the world.

See this blog entry that describes how Easter is the defining moment in God's plan to defeat evil and redeem and restore not just humanity, but all creation. It's short, but very weighty.
