I'm going to guess there are some miraculous Toyotas in the the area as well but we won't be hearing about them.

Is that a gaping chest wound he's got there?  Because that sure counts as a scathing in my book.

Of course it's still standing. He was making sure the job was done right.

So... this time around God decided to sacrifice everything except his son?

Fair's fair I guess.

at least god has his priorities straight.  thousands of people died, but at least the statue survived.  that shows how much god loves them.  i promise i'm trying not to sound incredibly cynical about this, i just can't help it.

How long until some local militant athiests are demanding the statue be removed because they claim it is against the separation of church and state.
/Yes, militant athiests can be as assholish as fundamentalist christians.

More like this is the type of statue I would have expected to see survive all this destruction:

Not in Phillippines but in SW OH, the gre' big one overlooking I-75 (? I-71 if not 75) in front of church @ ~Trenton is back up again. Not as big as huge one overlooking Rio de Janeiro, but big enough for porpoise,. Methinx meknows someone who goes there --

This is going to surprise you; you might want to sit down.  (A) the Philippines are not actually part of the US, so our Constitution does not apply to them.  (B) This statue is not (as far as I can tell) on state-financed public property, so it wouldn't violate the First Amendment even if it was in the US, so no atheist would make that claim.

Now I realize that you are under the impression that people who don't subscribe to your beliefs are "out to get you," but the fact is, you're just paranoid.  The only one making you feel like a victim is yourself.

 Aww, god flattened the homes of hundreds of thousands of people killing several thousand in the process.
But he saved a Jesus statue. He really does care. wait I think there's some mold spores in the air I'm starting to get all teary.

The Great Buddha at the Kotoku-in in Kamakura, Japan, survived several storms which destroyed the temple housing it. The monks kept rebuilding the temple until finally, after a tsunami carried the entire structure away in the fifteenth century they decided the Buddha wanted to be outside and didn't rebuild.

I see some other concrete miracles in the background. There are a couple of miracle concrete buildings and a few miracle fences that aren't concrete.

I can't do it with cutesy strikethroughs and a "FTFY" because mobile Fark sucks, but I think you meant to say "Mocking absurdity. Fark national pastime."

FTFA: This statue of Jesus Christ is located in the town of Tanauan, in the Philippines, and, in what's being called a miracle

Really? That's the miracle? A small hunk of concrete survived  a typhoon that killed thousands and left thousands more homeless and destitute.

I guess if you believe in magic in this day and age you have to be able to find miracles in the mundane. In my book a miracle would have been if a great big giant hand came down from the skies and shielded the entire island from the effects of the storm. But hey, that statue thing... well that's pretty impressive too.

How the fark did politics get dragged into a thread about a tacky cement statue of some shoeless hippie?
Users of the "libtard" portmanteau, I am looking at you.

I wonder if you look closer you will find it was built by an engineer with training brought to you by the sciences.

And to the guy above saying we are mocking Jesus. I just want to say at least I am not. There are a lot of good things ascribed to Jesus that I admire. What I am mocking is GOD, Inc that has built up around him over time.

Dahnkster: "Thousands dead. Statue survives. It's a miracle!" Idiots everywhere


That's the one that gets me fired up.  Total devastation, thousands of families torn apart, billions in dollars of damage to personal property and loss of livelihood, and you're going to have people pointing at that statue saying "He's watching over us!"  If He is, then He is a Giant Dick.

"Out of the death, the ruin, and the rubble, a Cross appeared in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11/2001.   It just appeared out of nowhere. The steel structure was riped (sic) away from it, and it stood in a place open and solitary. No one put it there, or erected it somehow. That's right, it simply appeared. Many there thought it as a miracle, a sign of hope, and it gave them a small comfort to know that God has not abandoned us."

Again, if this is God's plan, then He is a Giant Dick.

I can't believe people are mocking the fact that this Jesus statue survived and now it's giving people hope. I think it's great that people who have lost everything are able to look at this symbol of hope to help them get through this and rebuild. Sometimes that little bit of hope is all people have. Who cares if it doesn't make sense, it's what is helping them survive right now.

The mockery is for people who think a statue surviving is a "miracle," but ignore the fact that a couple thousand people (at least, possibly as many as 10,000) were killed.  If God is going to do "miracles," protecting the people would be a much better one than protecting a statue.

You want to know what's giving a sense of hope to the people affected by the typhoon?  The crew of the USS George Washington, the 3rd Marines Expeditionary Battalion, Doctors Without Borders, and a wide array of public and private charities.

If Christians really want to put their money where their mouth is, they should stop worrying about statues and start worrying about people.  In my interpretation of the Gospels, that's what Jesus would have suggested.

I see what you did there, subby.  Heard that one long ago on Dr. Demento.  Was astonished when I learned about the Border Blasters and that it had *not* been done as satire!

Militant atheist response: Haw haw, stupid cristdum, believing that your magical sky fairy does stuff, you're stupid, you should die haw haw.

Fundamentalist Christian response: This proves that the gay is wrong because Jebus statue survived herpdederp.

See this is why you build your buildings out of concrete instead of flimsy wood in hurricane zones. Even if debris can penetrate a concrete wall, I guarantee you a well built concrete house will survive a hurricane or a tornado WAY better than a well built wood house.

It's un-Christian to think about the affected people. God wanted them dead for a very good reason I'm sure. Praise Jesus.
