So I've been reading all the articles about the plane crash in NYC. The headlines say "MIRACLE IN THE HUDSON!" or similar things.

mir⋅a⋅cle
 –noun
1. an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.

Poor pilots! they're 20+ years of experience had nothing to do with it. the pilots quick thinking had nothing to do with it.

I think that its terrible that the pilots receive very little credit for what they did. This shows just how ignorant our country is.

Sorry makes me think of Voltaire "...I hate people who blame the Devil for their own shortcomings and, I hate people who thank God when things go right.."

Can't agree more. I've had this same conversation with two pilot friends of mine and one serious flying enthusiast. They all agree it is stupid to say it was a miracle and they are religious. Military training, years of commercial flying experience, repeated safety training and drilling... nope, had nothing to do with it. God came down and belly flopped that plane into the Hudson. Friggin' media.
