In case you need an example of why I grow increasingly skeptical and anti-religious as the years go by, let me share with you a bit of something to make you think:
The rescuers were there in uniform, and the girlâ€™s parents were interviewed. A reporter asked, â€œWhat do you want to say to the rescuers?â€ The father responded, â€œI want to tell them that we thank God for sending them!â€ Folks, letâ€™s get some priorities in place here. This wasnâ€™t a miracle, in any way. God didnâ€™t send the rescuers, a telephone operator did. God didnâ€™t supply the oxygen that the child received, nor the other first-aid techniques they applied. The rescue squad saved the girls life, after the omnipotent, all-seeing, omniscient one to whom churches have been erected all over the state â€“ allowed the child to fall into the water.
