    Do Christians believe that their God figure created the Zika virus?

    If so, what do they believe the purpose of creating it was?

    Mind you, the OP questions apply to a virus like Ebola equally as well.

    Are they questions you just don't want to answer?

    Or, if the problem is that you think the answers are obvious, could you just say what the answers are anyway?

    You have chosen to post on this thread.

    The question is for you and other Christians. Is the Zika virus something that you believe was created by your God figure, and if it you do, what do you believe is your God's purpose in creating it?

    Don't you also believe in some kind of creator? If so, did it create the Zika virus?

    I haven't met any Christians who claim to be able to read the mind of God.

    Is the emergence of the Zika virus (whatever that may be) evidence in favour of intelligent design?

    Is the effect of the Zika virus on humans "good" in any religiously relevant sense and if not, why is it allowed?

    Would a "Creation Scientist" be able to assist our response to the outbreak, or would we just rely on the power of prayer?

    Would a Creationist whose family members were infected with the virus feel required to ignore scientists steeped in Natural Selection theory?

    Are you saying that in order to understand a god's purpose, the followers are required to be able to read their god's mind?

    Do you "read (your) God's mind" when seeking to understand his purpose?

    If you did happen to meet some Chrisitans who told you they were able to "read God's" mind, would you believe them and if so would you therefore join with them and follow their way?

    Actually a bit of research shows that it may be genetically engineered...

    There is no kind of creator that has revealed itself to me so I certainly have no reason to believe - or to claim - that the Zika virus was created by some sort of entity that designed it and brought it into existence.

    I neither subscribe to nor profess any religious ideology about the environment we live in. No religious people have offered me any convincing reasons to adopt their beliefs.

    I see things like these viruses as natural occurrences and do not know what the ultimate origin of them was.

    Christians, on the other hand, have an elaborate ideology pertaining to creation, the nature of their God figure, and the purpose of things. Hence my OP.

    I have never met a Christian that doesn't.
