Should he have prayed?

104 posts in this topic

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.

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
