This is a good example of a horrible news headline:

"Calm and prayers help steer stricken plane back to Singapore."

The pilot did give the passengers credit, but he said:

"The best that we can ever ask of passengers is to stay cool, stay calm ... which you did. And for that we thank you."

It's funny, he failed to mention prayer, so why did Reuters have to give prayer credit?

And let's not forget all the Chilean miners last year who gave thanks to God for saving them after hundreds of dedicated people had worked round the clock, employing human ingenuity and high-tec equipment to rescue them.

Every time some idiot news service prints a story like this one, readers should remind them that there's also stories like this one: http://www.gadling.com/2009/03/25/tunisian-pilot-who-prayed-while-c...
