...and it wasn't brought up to spark yet another debate over evolution, either. It was used as an example of how you are doing exactly the same thing you fault others for doing.

No god of any kind had anything to do with the safe landing of that plane. Even if a majority of Americans believed that, the only thing it would mean is that all the fools are on the side of the majority.

What would it take to make people say that it was a work of God? Anyone?
It would take a video of high quality, preferably by a news crew, which had footage that showed the unmistakable image of a giant hand gently holding the airplane and guiding it to a smooth landing or something equally dramatic.

And yeah, I'm sure we'll get some believers in here saying it was the hand of god, and god's will...they always do. But I found it refreshing that the co-pilot would speak up on the record and say it was not a miracle.
There ya go

And if it was god saving the plane why not get them to land at Newark like they were trying to do? He must have terrible aim to get them into the river.

*kind of funny when I started typing this that the Foo Fighters "Learn To Fly" came on. lol Great video BTW*
