    "... he was conscious and breathing. The boy received only minor burns.."

    Sounds pretty lucky to me.

    Don't forget, there have been plenty of people who've been hit by lightning over the years, and this exact situation, though uncommon, is not impossible, and is not necessarily any supernatural sign of any sort.

    Pre-emptive strike on observational selection!

    EDIT: WOW, I have SERIOUSLY got to stop "debating" with young-earth creationists.

    What about all the other 13 year old kids that die every minute (though this one didn't die right). This is not even a coincidence it's just like selecting shocking data without revealing/knowing that somebody else also died the minute before and the minute before that.

    I haven't seen a single creationist nor a debate around here, what are you talking about >.>

    It's an amusing coincidence, that's all, and I think it was the point of the thread.

    Yeah. It must be pretty unlucky to be struck by THUNDER. I'd hate to be struck by thunder. It must really hurt. Then again, only that kid would know.

    Shocking News!

    A boy, 13 years old marries a woman, 37 years old.

    It was on 13:37 that the 1337 boy of 13 married the woman of 37 on the 37th of the 13th month.






    That just ain't right!
