More myopic Christian idiots (God is Good!)
Woman is unharmed with a light airplane crashes into her house.

"God is good!", she says.

I guess God wasn't so good to the two men and one woman on board the Beech Bonanza, all of which were killed in the accident.

I'm sure they were atheists. Or Satanists. Or Buddhists. Or gay. Or Scientologists. Or democrats. Or foreigners. Or CNN employees. Wait a minute, those first two are the same thing, aren't they?

Oh, well, whatever they were, they deserved it. God'll judge 'em. God is good. I hope everyone knows this is wild-ass sarcasm, I think that lady is a first-class idiot and the loss of life is a tragedy.

I understand being happy that you survived something like that. But there is truly something wrong with the mentality that "God chose to save me and not you" Selfish and disgusting.

My sympathies to the family who read that woman's statement and have to think, even if its just for a second, that some ridiculous god mythos punished their Children/Mother/Father/Etc and killed them.

Sums up religion nicely. No matter how they spin it, what it boils down to, is "me". My inability to accept how unbelievably insignificant and transient I am. I guess it is a tough pill to swallow for many.

I see what you did there. Yes

They'll just blame it on Bernoulli.

Yeah, that Bernoulli, he sure was a jerk for figuring out how the speed of gasses and liquids varies with its pressure. What a jerk. That plane would have been just fine without that little bit of physics.

You think the fundies give a shit about fizzics? ... I mean apart from the carbonation in their Cheerwine.

More like this.

Leave the world of the silver screen behind, Vosur and come back into the real one. It's a bit scary here, but it's sometimes worth it Tongue

It was their time. It was her time too but she - she was given a second chance at life. That's the point, right?

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