The Chilean Mine Rescue – Did God help out?

Religious doublethink in operation - all the good things are definitely down to God and prayer - all the bad things are - well, it's a mystery. He saved 33, but allows hundreds of thousands to die in tsunamais, floods, wars etc.

Perhaps the risible explanation advanced for the Great Lisbon earthquake (1755) might come in handy - the tectonic plates had been given free will by God ...

As the hospital doctor on the video/audio link wryly observed, religion and prayer comforts those few who get a result, but those who don't are resentful and feel betrayed.
