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.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-11-24

Yes, "stereotype." Because NO news media outlet refers to anyone escaping from almost certain death as "miraculous" or "an act of God." You never see stories where people do amazingly brave or skilled things in large numbers to save a life which is then referred to as "a miracle."

It's so ingrained into the culture it's ridiculous. One child surviving a town-erasing tornado is called a "miracle" by every reporter who shows up. It's as grown-up as thanking Santa Claus for burning down every home in a city except one, and it often plays down tragedy as well as anyone who helped rescue someone or save a life (like surgeons, fire fighters, or in the case above, people helping get someone out of a sinking car).

Calm the fuck down, SPK.

Yup, it sure does.

I thought stereotypes weren't supposed to be true. This site more likely cherry picks the worst of the wide spectrum of piss foaming insanity that is religious thinking.

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?"

SHE WAS SAVED BY THE MYTHBUSTERS! Praise you, Jamie! Praise you, Adam! Glory be! In the Build Team's Names, Hallelujah Amen!

God tried to kill her but science saved her!

Die, heretic! This video made me find god and your pathetic attempts at worldly explanations are the temptations of Satan.

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.

Sanest Man Alive - 2013-11-24

I dunno how wet Pueblo, CO is most of the time, but I'd guess it's possible to never learn to swim if natural bodies of water aren't a common thing in your area and more importantly, if you don't have a real inclination to learn how.

You've got to actually be relatively fit and a competent swimmer to swim in street clothes, too, they get pretty heavy.

Jet Bin Fever - 2013-11-25

I say we put CatPenis in a sinking car to see how it's done!

dairyqueenlatifah - 2013-11-24

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.

Jet Bin Fever - 2013-11-25

Why are all you fuckers so goddamn negative about a video of a woman not drowning? Don't be a bunch of cynical assholes because they say the word miracle instead of "incredibly unlikely outcome" or something.

Chances are, she'll be a lot more grateful to be alive and have a great story to share with people that will make them happy. Stop being a bunch of dicks. Yes dairyqueen, I'm responding to you, but it applies to others above too.

dairyqueenlatifah - 2013-11-26

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.
