O rlly? Faith is the number one survival tool? I'm speechless. ok, let's say all those people on the surface just had faith that the miners would be saved. . . ummmmmmmmm what would have happened? They would have DIED. . . . Human ingenuity and gumption saved those people. Period. All praise should go to the rescuers. Huzzah!
No. 1 Survival tool: Wanting to not be dead....real BAD.
A pioneering feat of science and technology and God gets the credit.well done God.Oh by the way, why did you kill all the other miners die when you caved in the mine?
I heard "some of the miners said they were struggling with the devil" being mentioned when I watch the Sky News live broadcast. "That's something mental health professionals would need to look into", immediately followed.
Faith that the mine was well constructed...Yeah that theory holds up.
Faith in which god? There are so many, how does one choose?
Oxygene, food, water, decent temperature etc... all go before delusions
Wow... dozens of rescuers working non stop to get these people out and who do they thank? God? I say put them back in and see if their god will show up to help them.
I think that helps explain why faith / religions survives despite logic / rationale.No-one is denying that science / dedicated people actually saved the miners - although some would maybe argue god acted through them!However, the video's main premise is that faith in a god helps people survive.The premise is either true or false and can be evaluated as such. The question which follows is does this prove god is true, or that the idea of faith is what helps people, i.e. believing in something makes peoiple optimistic and increases their survival rate vs negative people.
So what game is Rupert Murdoch playing at? Is it just greed or does he think he is the devil? He surely doesn't believe the garbage his priests are putting out.
i guess we're all gona die early then loll!
"the #1 survival tool in a crisis is faith in god"; Bullshit! I spent 8 years in the military and "faith" was never a subject in survival training. Don't they realize that 'god' buried them under ground in the first place.
So good loves Chile but hates West Virginia?

If "faith" was my most powerful survival tool, I don't think I'd ever risk leaving the house.
