    Even their pagan Islam couldn't save their assess from Earthquake. Turkey should be converted back to Christianity, just like 5th Century.

    Yeah, the environment is not getting fucked by humans, all these earthquakes, wildfires, tsunamis, etc. are just a coincidence…
    Sarcasm, by the way. This is the new normal.

    By the way, your "thoughts and prayers" are not gonna do anything (for real, who started this useless trend?).
    If you really wanna help, find a way to financially support the families affected by it.
