Apparently quite a few of them "thanked god" for their release, rather than the guys who had actually done the work. I'd like to know why he buried the poor sods in the first place and why he reckoned these guys were worth saving but the 214 poor sods killed in the Chilean earthquake back in February were not.

Amen (pardon the pun) to that.

Religion always seems to gloss over questions like that!

Each one that came out hugged the guys that got them out is that not thanks?
