    Yahoo News is full of crap; that's all I got out of this story and anything else I've read over there.

    No, I don't read or watch any of those sources for credible news. CNN is the least dubious cable news network, but they're just as desperate for page hits and ratings to repeat this crap. Dumb sites posting a dumb, phony story on a day of the week when the most gullible people are most likely to believe it.

    Not really surprised a Catholic priest would show up. There was a teenager trapped in the car after all.

    Angels and miracles don't exist, they're literary concepts meant to balance perspective in the face of adverse or morally questionable outcomes. Commercial journalists have an incentive to bypass their traditional standards and present this as truth on a day when people are most likely to believe and respond to the story. Now you can stop hiding behind redundant hyperlinks and admit you naively believe in angels.

    Admit that your original excuse of being "Yahoo news" was wrong, and now you're backpedaling. Admit that you're having trouble discussing the article in the OP because you can't get away from vague philosophical assumptions.

    Personally, I don't believe in articles like this and it doesn't really change my beliefs in anything. But I am genuinely curious to hear more facts come to light and it seems like it would be much more useful to discuss what might have actually, factually happened here instead of insulting others with defensive atheism.

    I'm not backpedaling at all. Yahoo News allows user-generated submissions by non-professional journalists, it would stand to reason that editorially they're less critical of questionable stories such as this, especially when there's an obvious commercial and promotional motive to post this story on a Sunday. The story is crap because angels and miracles aren't real, that was implied as much in my initial post. That's not a philosophical assumption, either; they were literary devices meant to symbolize moral balance, and there are no facts anywhere to document their existence. Incidentally not believing in angels or crap stories like this has nothing to do with atheism.

    OK... OK... admit it. Who among you pretended to be a priest and saved the people?

    LOL your main argument is flawed because you didn't even check the post date. August 8TH

    That particular aspect of one of my arguments is flawed. But the fact that you felt like posting it a Sunday just transfers the deceit from them to you as the OP.

    You know why? Because I go to church and I heard about it there. So I decided to post about it when I got home. Is there a problem with that?

    I'm not particularly religious, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate something uplifting. I never understood why some people feel the need to venomously put down everything having to do with not only the concept of God, but anything even pertaining to something we can't understand. Does it make you that uncomfortable? Or do you really hate the idea of God so much that you make it your personal mission to be angry at other people over a concept? We are still in very infant stages of understanding the world. As a matter of fact, we still aren't clear what consciousness is. Who are you to tell everyone else what to think in such an abrasive manner? One thing I've realized is that many people have a problem with religion because it is constantly pushed upon them. This is understandable. You and many others like yourself, embody the same action only worse. I suggest perhaps reading some books on quantum physics. There is an increasing wealth of information at your disposal and maybe with a little more knowledge you'd realize that our views of the world are rapidly changing. At the very least, be happy. A girl survived a horrific accident. There is no need for you to bring hate into this.
