And you don't think God directs lighting strikes?
That was my point. Do you think that it is a random occuranance whether the victim is a child molester or a Boy Scout?
They're not that random, but you can consider them so. God most certainly does not direct them.
It was not too long ago that Ben Franklin showed that lightning was atmospheric electricity.
It's been a bad summer for the boy scouts.
Boy Scouts have accidents all the time. If you go out in the world, camp in tents, go boating, camping, rock climbing, there will be accidents.
What's happening is that the MSM is reporting everything they can get about Scouts and accidents.
Remember the Shark Summer, when shark attacks were actually way down, but media reports tripled?
I am just going to add here that last nights news report on this incident said, "the strike happened as one of the staff members was moving from one site of tarps to the next." That is loosely quoted BTW.

hey mr. z you could put your eye out with that thing
My neighbor's Christmas trees sure do.
A woman that I work with has her husband and son at the Virginia Jamboree where the four counselors were electrocuted. She said that they kept it hush hush there and the campers got their info from the outside.
Thanks for posting. That place does not look like anywhere I'd want to be in a T-storm. Pretty good elevation and bigtime exposure. What a tragedy.
A buddy of mine pit crews for sports car racing and was in Florida at an event. He was near the track talking with friends when he and two others in the group were hit by a bolt outta the blue. He spent the night in a hospital, but was none the worse after that. I gave him a T-shirt for his birthday that said something like "I Survived Being Hit By Lightning." He wears it proudly--he was lucky.
