If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

This was not a fucking miracle. There is no magic in the universe.

Extreme luck is not a magical miracle. People do NOT have good luck because a god fairy waved its magic wand to make it happen. This is called "reality".

It is one heck of a story. A cook on a tugboat survives at the bottom of the sea only because he found an air pocket, and also fortunately because he was rescued by divers before he would have been unable to breathe. This was not magic. A fairy did not save this lucky Nigerian cook. The divers who were looking for dead bodies saved him.

"To this day, Okene believes his rescue after 72 hours underwater at a depth of about 100 feet is a sign of divine deliverance."

It's too bad. This person will spend the rest of his life believing in bullshit.

It's the 21st century. We know things these days. Scientists have chased the god of the gaps out of all its hiding places.

A god fairy is not real, it's not necessary, and it's ridiculous.
