They're not. Just hating on the people who deny a person's achievements (in this case, a doctor's work, and all the medical advances ever made to make it possible) by calling it an act of God. Like, imagine you've just pulled someone out of a flooded river or something, saving their life. And then they turn around to you and go "God saved me!". You'd be a bit miffed, no? You would at the very least be entitled to reply "Actually, my name's xxxxx, but you can call me God if you want".


Personally I'd just throw them back in, saying "sorry, God changed her mind". And leave the ungrateful sod to drown.

I find this is just the worst in speech. I'm constantly stopping myself mid-sentence to explain which homonym I mean. If I just said, "Don't go there!" Then, well. Imagine. They might think I was saying, "Don't go they are". And then they'd just be confused.

You pronounce "they're" the same as "there" and "their"??


Yeah. How do you pronounce them?

Sure you do.

Record the following sentences.

They're not.

The original post wasn't; Cahojama's could have been.

If it was any other topic, someone asking "can we not hate on <x>" would have gotten the original poster and anyone who defended them bashed down. Why is religion any different?

And I'm pretty sure that unless the people involved are complete idiots (which unfortunately an extremely up-front and loud minority of my faith is), they weren't saying "Thank you God for healing him", they're saying "Thank you God for sending/helping us find a Doctor who could."

Given that you can't know the religion of a stranger, thanking a god they might not believe in for them coming to rescue them seems quite shitty anyway. "Thank you, and thank [deity] for sending you" seems fine to me, for the record.

No, pretty sure that applies in every topic outside of SB. This topic is no exception. It's highly dependent on the X.

Wow, that sounds like my fiance talking to me! Funny enough, keeping a plant alive is much harder than keeping a cat alive. Or 3 cats. Or 3 cats and a few fish. Cats bug you for food. Constantly! So, ISHTST, but plants dying in my care doesn't mean every living thing will die in my care. :lol: (more towards obnoxious pet store people than you or anyone else)

When I was fifteen, somewhere in some woods with a couple of friends, the two other guys really wanted the girls to make out with each other. They didn't accept the bargain that if I kissed one of them, two girls would make out with each other. I was sad about this.
