This is priceless. Chilean Miner completely disregards the months of straining, relentless efforts by the real heroes – the rescue staff – after finally getting freed; God rescued him, thank God! Right.
Of course, he never asked why God let him get trapped in the first place. Wonderful!
The 15th man trapped for more than two months in a Chilean mine was pulled to safety Wednesday as the sounds of rejoicing filled the camp in the Chilean desert where hundreds of international media were holding vigil along with family members of 33 gold and copper miners entombed half a mile below ground.
“I never doubted. I always knew God would rescue us,” Mario Sepulveda, the second miner to be rescued, said in a television interview.
When will these extremist theists realize that they are sacrificing real people over a made up deity. This is so sad.

Girl refused to say prayers with father: neighbours
By QMI Agency
MONTREAL — A 13-year-old girl whose beating death led to the arrest of her 71-year-old father had enraged him by refusing to say her prayers, according to neighbours.
Noutene Sidime died Saturday evening in suburban Longueuil, Que., three days after she was rushed to hospital with breathing difficulties, her face covered in blood.
Her father, Moussa Sidime, had called 911 last Wednesday. Sidime was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, but the charges could be upgraded, police said.
Neighbours said Noutene Sidime was a polite girl who was often unable to please her elderly father.
Others who live in the apartment building south of Montreal said the girl sometimes neglected to say daily prayers, which infuriated her father.
“(He) was mean,” said Karine Girard, who lives on the street. “I’ve seen him grab her by the arm because she wouldn’t go up to say her prayers.”
Relatives told QMI Agency they believe the girl’s death was an accident.
Today, like many other Sundays, we had Sunday School on Twitter. Since the topic was a bit long, a few of my friends suggested that I should preserve today’s stream of tweets for further reference. In fact, their suggestion was rather that I wrote these as a blog post, but my laziness knows no boundaries. My apologies.
So, to make it less embarrassing, let’s say that this is a raw draft of a future post; also, please consider that we have yet some facts that we need to review in our next Twitter Atheist Sunday School.
This is a fascinating story, in my opinion, everyone should have access to learn about these facts.
This is how we make atheists. 😉
Oh! For these tweets to make sense you need to read them from bottom to top. Sorry.
As for your last question, Ed, I have better reasons not to believe in any gods than to believe, but, if there are gods and they are just, they will not care how godly and pious you have been, but will judge you based on the virtues you have lived by.
