Proof of God? All passengers on the downed NY flight survived?

As many of you may be aware, all of the passengers on the recent US Air flight that water-landed in the Hudson River in NY were devout Christians.

Is the proof of their survival proof God exists?

It should give all of us pause and reconsider the old adage "God is my copilot."

    God is a pretty bad co-pilot if he's piloting a crashing plane.

    It proves that an experienced pilot can land everywhere in an emergency. The "Miracle on the Hudson" is incredible because of the fact no person died and as the pilot replaced into waiting to land the airplane devoid of submerging it. very few pilots interior the international are able to doing that. And to assume God is American is particularly retarded despite in case you're an atheist enjoying as a theist.

    If the NY flight was proof of God,

    what was 9/11?

    Your logic is faulty. Believing in God is an act that is accomplished by opening your heart and stepping out IN FAITH that God exists.

    It's proof that a skilled and experienced pilot is a good thing...

    But that's all.

    Now, maybe if "god" had prevented the birds from flying into the engines to begin with, and it was obvious that "he" pulled them away at the last second, that might be worth discussing.

    That statement will come as a real shock to the Non-Christians on board... for shame!

    The Pilot (the HUMAN one) was credited for saving those on that flight by ALL the passengers...

  • Listen Captain Amen,

    I am going to tell this for once and no more:

    The God(s) of the Bible and the Torah are both imaginary (man made).

    The true God is not interested in such things like plane crash .

    So, God put them all on the plane.

    Put birds in its flight path.

    Crashed the plane into the river.

    And then saved all of the passengers.

    At this point, I recognize the pilot, who saved the day.

    No, it's proof they had an extremely well-trained pilot. The very fact that they're alive almost proves there is no loving God who watches over us, because then there would be NO planes crashing or deaths.

    Why would God choose to save them when he didn't save anybody from the 9/11 attacks?

    God didn't save them. The pilot and the crew did that.

    If all passengers surviving a single plane crash is proof of God's existence, what do you make of all the other plane crashes no one survived?

    Their good fortune is only proof of the pilot's extensive experience and great skill.

    Riiiiiiiiiight....every single one of them was a CHristian. Have any proof of that statement?

    Also, its not like the plane fell out of the sky - it was brought down in a controlled descent by the pilot, who performed a water landing. Nothing miraculous about that.

    This is only proof that it was a good pilot.

    It's only proof of a heroic and intelligent pilot who knew what the hell he was doing. There was nothing to do with God.
