The Girl Gets No Credit!!!
« on: December 17, 2012, 02:49:28 PM »
A 6.5 year old girl was the only survivor in one of the classrooms where all the other children were killed. Well he does give her credit at the end

Quote
"Of those who were left in the classroom of first graders, she was the lone survivor," Solomon said. (Law enforcement officials and witnesses say seven pupils survived in a second classroom by hiding in a closet.)

"Somehow, in that moment, by God's grace she was able to act as if she was already deceased," said Solomon, who spoke at the community interfaith vigil Sunday night on the same program as President Barack Obama.

Solomon said the little girl couldn't have survived "outside of divine intervention."

"She has wisdom beyond her years," he said.

I say fuck you Rev!!!

Of course she gets no credit.  That is the way of the creator of all, the loving father, the king of kings.  He's taking young lives too early, and saving one or two for the miracle.

God - killing millions and saving a few for centuries.

Oh yea? Well fu..... wait never mind. 

The stupidity I've been reading and hearing from the religious about this event is inching me closer to getting back into debating them again.  I got rid of my facebook a long time ago but I've browsed my wife's to see what people were saying about this.  My patience didn't last very long.

From the beginning they have not been able to brush this one away with the old mysterious ways and God's plan lines.  They seem to be searching themselves and as a result come up with this crap.

When your god has to act in mysterious ways more than, say, once a year, he's not too good at what he does.

Find another one.

Or understand that he doesn't exist. Which makes the most sense when things make no sense.

Ugh, yeah. And WHY wasn't the firing pin blocked by divine intervention again?? Oh, maybe something to do with the iron chariots.  &)

What an ass. But you have to realize, WWGHA Peeps, tragedy is the best time ever to scour for new or reluctant members of your flock.

Solomon said the little girl couldn't have survived "outside of divine intervention."

Therefore, ALL the other children died because god deliberately withheld his divine intervention.  I'm sure that will be a great comfort to their parents. 

Screw that guy, if he were in front of me I'd punch his face in.  I wonder if HE would get any divine intervention?
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

Read the comments section. It's amazing. Twenty years ago, even just 10 years ago, you wouldn't see such a backlash from non-believers against the stupid religious statements.

Jesus, God gives girl a lifetime of trauma. Hope she moves to a less violent country as an adult.

Religious people always have been saying this. I saw on the news years back about a tornado that destroyed a home, and the mother/daughter who was not home but her mother and children were; well, all were killed in the home but one child who was found flung up a tree without a mark on her but some minor bruising.the mother said to the news person: "God was looking out for my daughter." Yet, apparently, not her own mother or other child.

Idiocy.

Ahhh yes, the good old argument from incomplete devastation. I notice the concern of many believers after such tragedies to be more with rationalizing God's inaction than with the tragedy itself. Cognitive dissonance alone doesn't always suffice which is where those cohesive ingroup dynamics come in handy; as long as they're out and loud about it conformity behavior will reinforce the idea that God was there somewhere. So many believers couldn't possibly be wrong!

How can 26 murdered people and one injured be considered a miracle.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

It's a good thing that god operates in mysterious ways, otherwise his actions couldn't be explained.

So God saves 1 out of 27 children and this is seen as a good performance?
I hope for their sake God doesn't exist because he's either a sadistic child murderer or laughably incompetent.
Or it was all part of his plan, maybe there are some hungry priests in heaven that were getting bored of the selection of dead children to molest.
If God exists at all he clearly wishes to reside exclusively in the imagination.
