Indeed – fair enough.
But I must comment on:
… Tony Dungy thanked God for his Super Bowl win …
I could care less what he says – he’s not a government official making policy.
But it is an absurd thing to be thankful for. I mean, what beef does God have against the Bears? If the Bears didn’t pray enough – that is akin to gods needing sacrifice and honors in order to perform an act on behalf of humanity. That just screams superficial to me for a being that should be so wonderful. And if God doesn’t like the Bears – is it likely they will be banished to Hell when they arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Maybe God had money riding on Super Bowl XLI. Could you imagine being a Colts player arriving at the Pearly Gates if they’d lost? Old St. Peter would give him the "tsk tsk tsk" while shaking his head. "Too bad you lost Super Bowl XLI. God had $100 riding on that. Guess where you’re going?"
But, if Dungy sees fit to thank God, it seems to imply that he would have been helped to victory by God which means God would not have left the game to chance. This, of course, means 1) God cheats when betting, 2) God appeases those who pray to him over those that pray less and 3) FATE.
