Counting the hits, ignoring the misses
There was an article in the NY Post about a 3 year old girl who went missing for 11 days and survived with her dog.

People on FB commented "by the grace of god" and "it's a miracle."

I find it ridiculous that it just never occurs to them that if god has the power to intervene, it begs the question: why would he torture a 3 year old child for 11 days? He has a lot to answer for and should beg for this family's forgiveness.

RE: Counting the hits, ignoring the misses
this is a human thing in general, but they do this because they don't see a miss it is all gods plan. If someone dies gods plan, if they live his plan. If anything it sounds like gods plan means his mistake. I mean think about it, in fact pick a god. If I fucked up something like a garden of eden it would be a mistake, if allah or yahweh do it on the other hand it is part of their plan. If that is the case every time I fuck up I am going to say it was part of my plan.

Good plan Laugh out load

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Translation A: It is unusual, therefore god.
Translation B: I don't understand it, therefore god.

Lazy answers, no thinking involved.

Guess it's not enough for God to get shown up by humans every day; animals want in on the act now.

Eh, who am I kidding, animals have been showing up God for centuries.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

The beliebers don't want to think about the misses...

...then again, their gawd never misses.

RE: Counting the hits, ignoring the misses
My tactic for dealing with the faithful when they say things like "he gave you life for you to question and tell him what to do?" Or "free will blah blah free will." Is to ask questions about the further implications about their statements:

If god needs validation that we are grateful, doesn't that make god insecure?

Or so this hurricane is god's punishment for our disobedience? I thought hell was the punishment? Are you implying that god would be so unjust that he would punish us twice? Especially since the hurricane is a rather underhanded way to punish us since it's not clear why we are being punished for? I'm sorry but that implies a god is abusive..

Since they refuse to look at the implication of what they are saying. That was my first step to atheism. To see god in a different light before I saw that that he was never there to begin with.
