I couldn’t help rolling my eyes at this story (with my bold):
Daniel Walker was on his final lap jogging in his high school gym class when he collapsed, his flawed heart giving out on him.
More than four days later, his heart at a standstill, kept alive by a bypass machine, it began beating again. The 17-year-old's parents called it divine intervention. His physicians were no less amazed.
Walker's father described his son's recovery in spiritual terms. "God turned around, put His hand on my son, and recharged him," said William Walker, 58, a retired sanitation worker.
Two days after it began to beat on its own, surgeons were able to fix the flaw in Walker's heart, increasing its capacity to 60 percent.
Let’s review. God allows this kid to have a faulty heart, and the kid collapses. And the kid would have died but for the bypass machine. After four days of indifference, God decides to step in and start the kid’s heart. Lucky about the bypass machine, or God would have been too late – kid would have died. Even then, God can’t be bothered to actually fix the heart, he leaves that to the surgeons. And the parents credit God, not modern medicine, for the recovery.
Seems it would have been easier all round if God had just fixed the kid’s heart at the outset. Ah - he was probably too busy fixing a football match, or something.
