Miracle?


Don't you get tired of hearing what passes as a miracle for these soft-headed people?

Today's miracle: the plane crash on an island off the coast of Colombia: the plane was struck by lightning, crashed, broke up into three pieces, and only one person died, an old woman who probably had a heart attack

The Caribbean island's governor, Pedro Gallardo, said it was extraordinary that almost everyone survived, and joined a chorus calling it a miracle. "We have to give thanks to God," he said.
.

Did it occur to him to wonder, if God had the power to save 126 people, why didn't he have the power to save that one last old lady?

Or maybe he just didn't feel like saving 127 people today?

Maybe God's just doing the math: let this one old lady die, who's probably going to die soon anyway, so he can concentrate on saving the 3.5 million kids in Pakistan who are at risk because of the floods that . . .

well, wait a minute! Couldn't he have just stopped those floods, too?

Cha! Don't you know there are three old crones who weave the yarn of a life, and because one of 'em just quit smoking, well out comes the sheers and SNIP.

This was obviously the work of Dr. Zeus.
