Cam Newton's car accident.

 Cam Newton, we have emptathy for that close call and empathy that you survived. But you survived because of the truck design and aid of EMTs and doctors, nothing divine involved.

 Absolutely! I got in a

 Absolutely! I got in a crash about 10 years ago due to simple teenage boneheadedness. I knocked down a tree. Myself and my passenger got out virtually unscathed. Not that bad, but the almost no injury is a very good thing. I looked up the safety rating after...5 stars. Yay Nissan and luck. 

Theists - If your god is omnipotent, remember the following: He (or she) has the cure for cancer, but won't tell us what it is.

 I've had some accidents in

 I've had some accidents in my lifetime but the most amazing things I've gotten out of weren't accidents. It was just doing fucking stupid shit like not wanting to wait for traffic on the Interstate so I cut through a rest stop driving at 90mph. <shudders> I think about the big 18 wheel rigs pulling out in front of me and smashing me like a small bean. Hormones are a double edged sword.

  I guess God® must have

  I guess God® must have been taking a nap when Cowboy Josh Brent crashed his car because God® let team mate Jerry Brown die from his injuries.

Brian and I shared Cam's post on FB and commented on the absurdity of thanking God for serviving. It was a bit reasuring to see all the skeptics commenting on that page.

What about the Cowboy who was crushed by the training facility roof which paralyzed him? God must love the Cowboys.

   Yeah, I guess the big

 

  Yeah, I guess the big "G" is no fan of the Cowboys.   I wish he would direct that divine rage at Cowboy's owner Jerry Jones...most people in Dallas would cheer his demise.

Jerry is a dick too, but has been a much better owner than Danny over the years. Cowchips make the playoffs lots more than the Skins do. I'd put up with Jerry, would be happy to auction off Danny to the lowist bidder. I'd even change the Skins name to the Invisible Unicorns if they'd get rid of Danny.

 Thanks Brian for alerting

 Thanks Brian for alerting me to the Cam Newton story the other day.  As you know (but others may not), I posted my response and a link on facebook.

Here is my posting on facebook.  The comment I made on Cam Newtown's page shows up here. 

My comment was:

I don't believe in god. By attributing your good fortune to the work of god you make us wonder about why God is causing all of the bad things in the world. If god is responsible for everything why do you think he decided to put you in an accident at all? Why do you think god sidelined you for the rest of the year?


I am extremely happy that you're ok, you're one of my favorite players in the NFL, but your post was distasteful towards the people that actually did save your life. The engineers who designed the cage of your trucks cabin deserve lots of credit. The ambulance that took you to the hospital deserve lots of credit as well as the doctors who worked on you.


The imaginary god you believe in doesn't deserve any credit for saving you from the accident he caused, or for giving you the losing season this year.

  I saw a hilarious Betty

  I saw a hilarious Betty Bowers quote posted there by a lady named Armena Amy Marie :

 

      "Thanking God for sparing you in a natural disaster is like sending a thank you note to a serial killer for stabbing the family next door."    

 

                  Awesome.

 I've responded to a bunch

 I've responded to a bunch of the Christian commenters after I posted my response.  I find it interesting how many theists post with a 4th grade writing level.

That's because god doesn't teach grammar and if it ain't in the bible then it isn't worth learning.
