People are thanking God and calling the survival of the passengers on Flight 1549 a miracle. I don't understand the reasoning. If God was involved, why'd He send those (poor) geese into the engines in the first place? Was He just showing off? Just providing an opportunity for the pilot, the passengers and the rescuers to show their stuff?
All I can tell you is that if I were a goose, I'd be offended. But I'm not, so I'll just stop right here.
