Magical disappearing priest....and those who believe the story.
http://now.msn.com/mysterious-priest-per...-car-crash

So, yeah.... The story was obviously posted simply to grab hits on their shoddy "news" site. (think a "national enquirer"-esq story) They know anytime they post feel good nonsense about magical beings that involve the christian gawd in some way, theyll garner tons of views. So I dont even bother to watch the video, as I know its garbage. I went straight for the comments sections.

I do not know why i'm still dumbfounded by the utter gullibility and stupidity of my fellow man, but I am. ( I was once one of the flock myself, so I know how it happens, but I am still amazed) Have a look see. Its overwhelming. The posts themselves, and then the thousands of "likes" they received. While people are waking up, its a slow go. Rational thought and reason are still playing catch up to feel good fairy tales. No

It was on freakin' ABC World News tonight, in a very credulous presentation.

Seriously - no suggestion that there was a prosaic explanation.

The thing is, it was on THE NBC Nightly News last night. Weeping
It was not explicitly presented/stated as a "miracle", but they might as well have.
I laughed so hard, I almost choked. So priests are chasing ambulances for business now too ?

Yes, I was at my cousin's house and he had the news on and I heard this. Nobody suggested anything other than magical disappearing priests and miracles. It was quite disturbing.

I dunno what channel my cousin had on, but they actually used the word "miracle" repeatedly.

I notice the priest failed to actually extract the victim from the vehicle...

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
