    Missing 11yr old boy, Proof of god? Or stupid?

    Honestly, if you havent heard about the 11yr old cub scout who got lost in Utah the other day and was found. Read this:

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,160309,00.html

    The details missing, that I got from CNN during the "breaking news" said the kids were at a Boy Scout camp (as cub scouts) doing a get together thing with activities. A "chaperone", or whatever, watched this kid complete an activity and turned his attention to another kid. When he turned back the kid was gone. Being as his campsite was 200 yards away, the chaperone thought he went back on his own, no biggie.

    Now IMO, here i go, the kid is a moron. He was with people and wandered off; at 11 years old, while he was learning the ways of the Boy Scouts, all nature and compasses. So instead of going back 600 feet (within clear site of his last known whereabouts, or at least a toddler can recognize the way back when taken somewhere within 600ft) he goes in the completely opposite direction for days, and because of that he wasnt found right away. SO IMO everyone is an idiot, they didnt do a CIRCULAR search of the area going away from his last known whereabouts, NOR did this kid have the brain power to wander off, see his is lost and go back the way he came...

    "People say that the heavens are closed and God no longer answers prayers. We are here to unequivocally tell you that the heavens are not closed, prayers are answered and children come home," said Brennan's mother, Jody Hawkins.

    yes, god is listening. Thats why he didnt point the kid back the right way when he left to go get what could only be assumed, was fruit snacks at his campsite.

    Yes, millions of children die each year of poverty and disease, but God helped your kid get found.

    the kid "had trouble with his sense of direction" in other words, he wasn't taught basic directional skills, it's not a sense so much as a skill. (he may have screws loose too)

    in my opinion, many kids don't get out and build forts in thw woods, and do all those things that help build those skills, they're looking for the HUD map in the upper lef thand corner, too bad life isn't a video game.

    I was in scouts, honestly, I felt it was dumbed down stuff, but then again I spent my summers in the woods on my dad's back 40 acres, having adventures bulding stuff with little tools, etc. I guess I'm a purest.

    glad the kids was found, but I'll be teaching my children young basic survival skills and landmark navigation.

    I have never bought into the "God provided the good in my life", but has nothing to do with the bad.

    IMO If god saved him, god put him in that situation as well. So..

    If there is a god, he has a cruel sence of humor and likes messing with us.

    Sorry, I thought this was off topic.

    FTR - I have no issue with religion, just do not understand it some times.

    WTF?!? I don't remember any rules saying religeon is off limits. People can be free to say what they want, if the mods want to step in then they will.
    Just rest assured that we will all be burning in Hell for this and don't bother reading any more topics that have God in the title.
