Proof of god

Here's your proof.

No one saw lightning strike the pine tree on Suburban Drive in Orange County, Florida, where teddy bears and flowers mark the spot where 2-year-old Caylee's remains were found on December 2, 2008.

But long, diagonal strips of exposed wood scarred the tall pine tree, WESH reported, and bits of bark lay scattered across the road.

"It could be a sign from the angels that they aren't happy with what's happened," a visitor to the site told the Orlando Sentinel newspaper. "The rain, the lightning, the storm – it's the heavens indicating they aren't happy."

Oh how trite you are. Lightning? Why not a goddamn earthquake, tsunami, hurricane, tornado, and to top it off, flaming space debris.

We need better math education, specifically, statistics. This reminds me of a book I read recently. To paraphrase and mold to this story: How many people die terrible deaths, with unjust outcomes and there's NO lightning strike at the 'memorial'?
