I don't believe God caused an event that killed 70,000 people in order to get the Smith family to move to Palmyra.

Perhaps God did not cause the eruption, but merely took advantage of it by arranging for the Smith family to be in the "right" place at the right time and to have Joseph born at the right time to take advantage of the eruption.

Perhaps the better question is, why didn't God stop the eruption so 70,000 people were not killed?
