An open letter to the Chilean miners

I am so proud for you.

No one can possibly understand your fears those first days before you knew you would be rescued.

In a situation that would have driven most of us mad with terror, you kept your heads, you followed your leaders instructions, you all co-operated and you survived.

You have shown the best of what humanity can accomplish under unimaginable circumstances.

God Bless you all, and your rescuers alike.

I am truly happy for them and their families. Great things always happen when people cooperate towards noble goals. Bravo to them all!

A wonderful achievement. It just goes to show what can be acomplished when people work together for the good of all. Brilliant.
God bless you all.

Terrific news that they were all rescued safely, and sooner than was originally envisaged.
A fantastic job by all concerned!

Funny how it was actually scientists who saved them, yet people feel the need to thank an invisible magical being instead.

How does the comfort one feels from believing in whatever they choose, inspire you to post such ridicule?

If you don't believe, fine. You have no right to make fun of those that do.

Back off!

The harm caused by religious belief makes it my duty to ridicule ridiculous beliefs.

Throw the baby out with the bathwater?

Its not religion itself, its the power structure behind it that does the harm.

Go find another thread to post your venom.
