well now, It seems praying at the beach saved a 12 year old kid after he drowned. Glad the kid is OK but praying had nothing to do with it. Why didn’t they jump into the sea and save the kid. If god was around he would have helped. Ignorance just kills me. Could it be that medical science kept the kid alive??
I watched this being reported by Diane Sawyer last night and she used the word 'miracle' quite a bit. I'm getting so tired of this sort of reporting, aren't you? Relying on sentimentality instead of science in these 'feel good' news stories.
The age of the boy, the fact he was healthy, and the cold temperature of the water have more to do with his survival than any prayer vigil. Give credit where credit is due, for pete's sake. The boy was given the medical attention he needed to survive another day and the credit goes to the medical team and the fast medical response. (The definition of prayer is: how to do nothing and still think you're helping.)
