Its tough to know what gawd is trying to do.  Show his greatness or teach humility.
The whole point of science is that most of it is uncertain. That's why science is exciting--because we don't know. Science is all about things we don't understand. The public, of course, imagines science is just a set of facts. But it's not.  Freeman Dyson

God was just too warn out after helping Vernon Davis score the winning TD for the 49's.[1] It just wore him out, that's all.

Nah, god just knew that if Tebow won the Super Bowl, that would qualify as proof that he existed..so he asked the guy to loose a few games early so nobody would suspect.

If by "God", you all mean "big money" then everything makes perfect sense.

Has this Tebow stated that God helps him play football? I'm an Australian, so don't hear anything of American sports, but I have heard of Tebow and saw his super bowl ad a while back.

Bets on whether Tebow and his ilk will claim either that "God works in mysterious ways" or "God was punishing me for being prideful"?

I think Tebow needs to change Gods after that mess last night.  I suggest Thor.  He has a big ass hammer.  He'll get the job done.  Then Tebow can get the Thor hammer tatted on his body in the off season.  Tebow time will then be a smashing success. :)

I don't think Tebow himself ever claimed that God actually intervenes in his football games, but  other people have, like his family's pastor.

Tim Tebow’s pastor says God is the reason Broncos are winning

And a lot of people seem to believe it:

Quote
A company called Poll Position called 1,076 people and asked them about the Denver Broncos quarterback. Quoting from a press release, “Seventy percent of respondents said they knew of Tebow’s success and among those aware of the Tebow phenomenon, 43 percent said they believed divine intervention was at least partly responsible for his success.”

Catholics genuflect in church before getting into their pews.  So I guess tebowing is nothing new. :)

Christians can tend to get a bit over excited when a famous sportsperson or celebrity is publicly Christian. We think it gives us street cred.

Perhaps the NFL can start teaching American football to all the starving children of east Africa so god will start paying attention to them too.

Or perhaps we could eliminate the worlds problems by putting others before ourselves. Unfortunately, we can't.

Maybe God should create us so that we are forced to act unselfishly?

All he would have to do is make us kind. Then no force would be necessary.

We can certainly try on an individual basis, agreed?

Would you be happy if God "forced" us to act unselfishly?

Of course we can try, but our efforts aren't having a huge impact. It's like a trickle of goodwill against a raging torrent of selfishness and greed.

And, honestly, I'm not sure if I would prefer to be created with the ability to do good only. I know many people are appaled at the idea, likening it to mental slavery. What do you think?

My perspective is that it really doesn't matter whether I would or wouldn't prefer being made to do good. Fact is, I have a choice because thats what God decided.

 I believe it was a lesson. God was simply showing Mr. Tebow that scoring on and off the field like Tom Brady does leads to a fiery hell.  :D

I can't argue with you here.  I suppose if we were created that way, we may not know that we are mental slaves.  Maybe we are mental slaves right now?

Heck no. I'm so kind it's ridiculous. But I've noticed over the last 60+ years that there are others don't fall into the category. They don't even come close. And that there are a lot of them. Which caused me to use a generic "we", if only to make myself sound humble.

Edit: clarified my mumbling.

Isn't that how the whole Christian religious system works? A survivor amongst hundreds dead is a miracle? Seems messed up to me. >:(

Pretty much. Here's the full version:

Everyone survived? God was looking out for them and/or it wasn't their time.
Only one died? It was his/her time.
Only one survived? God was looking out for him/her.
Everyone died? God had nothing to do with it; it was people/Satan.
Many/Few survived? God was looking out for the survivors and it was time for the others to die.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?
We choose our own gods.
