The power of prayer

Here’s a demonstration of the power of prayer – or not.

This Muslim Tunisian pilot thought Allah would provide what his training as a pilot ought to be providing, if he’d just employed the latter instead of praying to the former.

Result: crash, deaths, court case.

This isn’t a gloating post, just an indication of the stupidity of believing a god will provide protection when skill in the real world ought to have been employed.

Blimey, but he could even convince himself, if it helps, that his god would actually want him to use the skills that the said god gave him. However he squares it, it’s better than a fatal crash.
