We have been rampaging throughout the earth, ravaging the poor, leaving only destruction in our wake. Eventually there will be a rebalancing.
Have they not travelled through the earth and observed how was the end of those before them? They were greater than them in power, and they ploughed the earth and built it up more than they have built it up, and their messengers came to them with clear evidences. And God would not ever have wronged them, but they were wronging themselves.
We reap what we sow. It is inevitable.
