This website represents a rather comedic extreme of the stereotype that very religious people see god in everything because that's the way they have been brought up to think.

I think looking for "miracles" in a situation like a huge tornado flattening a town (to use SPK's example) is because we desperately want there to be some bright side, some shred of hope to be found in such a fucking horriific disaster. If a survivor is found despite the odds against their survival, then damned right some people are gonna hallelujah and say it's miraculous, and I won't fault them for it, no matter what I don't believe in. It's celebrating that things are not as awful as they could have been, even if that only means the death toll is slightly lower than estimated.
Now, if somebody wants to grouse about the habit of TV heads calling some unlikely sports victory "a miracle", I'll be right there with you.

Once the car was full of water and the pressure was equalized inside and outside the vehicle, she opened the fucking door and escaped. The door then closed itself because of water current/debris/whatever after she was out. She probably doesn't remember doing it because she was in a blind panic as anyone would be.
Also, how can you be unemployed and still referred to as a "store manager?"
Windshield wipers still running indicates the battery's working, she could have rolled the windows down before she sank. And she's how old and hasn't figured out swimming? I'd have been the guy filming.
You've got to actually be relatively fit and a competent swimmer to swim in street clothes, too, they get pretty heavy.

I say we put CatPenis in a sinking car to see how it's done!
Half a dozen or so people help to successfully pull a woman from a sinking vehicle....
Is the miracle that completely strangers amidst a disaster actually gave a shit enough about a fellow human being to not let them drown? That's the closest thing to a "miracle" I'm seeing here.
There's a difference between simply calling something a miracle (which I don't have an issue with) and another to tell someone "This is UNDENIABLE PROOF OF DIVINE INTERVENTION BY MY GOD THAT YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN!" when it's anything but.
It's the latter that I find stupid.
