Those Chilean miners trapped for two months after a mine collapse have begun their return to the surface. Here in Arizona, one man said in an interview, “it’s a miracle”. Really? I thought that there were people drilling a rescue shaft over the last two months to reach the miners. There is heavy equipment and quite a few workers on the scene and these miners are now taking a fifteen minute ride to freedom.
This is not a miracle. A miracle is if people gathered around the breathing hole, prayed and the earth opened up, forming stair steps with a hand rail so that the miners weren’t trapped for two months. That’s a miracle. That did not happen.
