Indeed.

We sacrificed fruits, goats or virgins for thousands of years to appease the fertility goddesses during droughts so it is perfectly normal for us to want an explanation for catastrophes. Pat Robertson blamed the liberal hedonistic way of life for 9/11, leftwingers rejoice about Somali piracy as a punishment for European overfishing, ecologists view global warning as a punishment for our "raping of Mother Earth".
The proper attitude is that of Job, the guy from the bible. Do not desperately seek for explanations of calamities when there are none.
