There are no coincidences!! (Tebow edition)

God's favorite quarterback, Tim Tebow,  had a big day on Sunday throwing for 316 yards. This, of course, is a heavenly sign that must not be ignored as the yardage perfectly corresponds with John 3:16, the favorite bible verse of all sports nuts.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

If you're still not convinced that God loves Tebow consider this, courtesy of Yahoo Sports, and Ksil lo Yavin, our Chief Tebow Correspondent:

- Tebow averaged 31.6 yards per pass. 

Zowee! What are the odds?!

In all seriousness, the hoopla surrounding Tim's stats is precisely why I object so strongly to the fraudulently pious claim that "There are no coincidences!!"

If you subscribe to this nonsense idea, what do you do about Tim Tebow? Modify the claim to "There are no coincidences!! (other than those coincidences which fail to support my previously held cherished beliefs)"? Embrace the New Testament?

Better to escape the trap entirely by joining me in the insistence that coincidences are just coincidences.
