Thank You

"Thank You"
I find myself stunned when achieving a great goal, or overcoming 
something fantastic that religious people inevitably say "Thank God I 
....." Why do they do this? Was god the one who put in all of the 
effort, and time needed? No. They did.
If a man gets paralysed below the waist for example, and strives, and 
exercises, and pushes himself to the limit so that he can walk again, 
why doeshe thank a god? He was the one who went through the pain, and 
humiliation to be able to barely walk with crutches.
Consider the same man. Now if he was laying in his hospital bed, or his 
bed at home. He prayed and prayed to his god but did nothing on his own 
and suddenly by some miracle, he could stand and walk. Then YES Thank a 
god. My question is, does this ever happen? Even an idiot would shout NO!
Most everyone has heard the following. "God helps those that help 
themselves." Well excuse my language but shit! If I could help myself, 
what need would I have for a god?
I could go on and on, but my main point I am trying to get across is 
that if you achieve something great, overcome a terrible illness, or 
anything along those lines...... DON'T thank a god.
Thank YOURSELF, because you deserve it.
