Should he have prayed?

On 60 minutes yesterday Sully, the captain of the plane that landed in the Hudson, said he did not pray during the crisis and just stayed focused on the task at hand.

My question for the very religious is would you have prayed? Should he have prayed? If he prayed and the plane crashed, would it have been god's will? If he prayed and they all survived, would it have been heralded as a miracle from god and not the skill of an excellent pilot?

Thoughts?

Excellent points. I can tell you what they're going to say, though. They'll say he prayed the night before, or some other time, and God heard him.

Kind of why I never got the whole "Miracle on the Hudson" title. It wasn't a miracle, it was the skill of a great pilot. Leave the miracle status for true miracles, like parting an ocean or something. Wife and I fought about this one night after the incident, the couch gave me a bad kink in my neck that night.

It's pretty brave of him to be honest about that.

That guy represents what I expect from a senior pilot. So far he is taking all of this attention very well - but I told my g/f and her dad that pretty soon we are going to find out that one of the flight attendants is having an affair, or the copilot owes back taxes, or something - what good are heroes if you can't tear them down?

I would like to know who the idiot was who opened the back door up, that's an internet phenomenon waiting to happen.

You're right. I fully expect the southern baptist convention to form a lynching mob any day now to go after him.

Poor guy.

Those people were meant to die! He interfered with God's will!

God allowed that plane to land so well because someone at 60 Minutes prayed for a ratings booster to save their job.

An Arab on the plane prayed to Allah that the plane crash, and everyone else started praying to their God that it crash as safely as possible. Everyone's happy.

And here we go again. I dont guess anyone else on that plane might have been praying when it was going down. There is no way to answer this without ridicule like always. Thanks again for starting another thread about how prayer is stupid, people who pray are stupid, blah, blah, blah. Im glad you guys have nothing else to talk about.

Um, I believe I started the thread with legitimate questions that can have multiple points of view , and never labeled any of them as stupid. Not sure why you would conclude that praying is stupid.
