Sounds like a clear message from DA LAWD, IMO.
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?

   I don't think they mentioned zip lines in the bible.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

They just can't help themselves ... near tragedy still gets contorted into some kind of miracle where God gets credit for exercising fine control over lightning - just enough to scare the bejesus out of everyone but not kill:

^ Wait, so their explanation involves God zapping the guy and saving him from the zap?  Talk about convoluted.

I've lived in Florida for over 30 years, have seen 10's of thousands (or more) of lightning strikes and never been hit though one struck about 15 ft in front of me once. Not saying I want to be struck but you'd figure Biblegod  would have better aim. ;)

YHWH speaks in an ancient aramaic dialect and "duck" sounds an awful lot like "tithe" so it is a bit confusing to xians frolicking outside in thunderstorms

The level of stupid is mind-blowing. I'd have interpreted it either that god is pissed at the stupid creation museum, or that a zip line has no place at a creation museum, or that god didn't like that guy working at the creation museum ... but, no, god is apparently still on everybody's side, no matter what happens. Duh. [insert head-slap here]
