    Maybe because you're reading Texas bike forums?

    I just noticed that this is from the Hatfield family... they probably just pissed off the McCoy's again.

    I don't think that posting well-wishes or prayers on an internet forum that this guy doesn't even participate in, is going to have much of a positive effect on his condition. I mean, I get the sentiment and all, but logically speaking...there's really no point in typing it if thinking it or "praying" it would have the same effect.
    Therefore, this thread is pretty much good for nothing except the usual insults.
    Hope you understand?

    So if he doesn't wake up and I prayed, does that mean God hates him?

    On the contrary. If your healing prayers don't work, it means he doesn't want to listen to you....


    Hope he gets better. That could be any of us... then again, most of us aren't in Texas.

    Then maybe God should have gotten off his ass and intervened before the car hit him?

    (Hardly seems fair that God would let a third party die because he doesn't like me. He seems like a bit of a dickhole, doesn't he?)

    I hope the rider does recover and his family is able to deal with it. Like someone else said, " that could be any of us."

    Bitingback was only trying to do something positive and a bunch of you guys dumped on her and the thread subject. Pull your heads out of your asses and either say something positive or don't say anything at all.

    as far as i see it...there are lots of monkeys in TX...anyone of them could be connected some how some way.

    on a broader scale...i'd think ALL mountain bikers would want to remain vigilant in the fight against this sorta sh*t...with one of those ways showing compassion and respect for those that are affected albeit on a forum where JUST perhaps a family member could come to read it and feel a little comfort and support when all they are feeling is pain.

    and i for one don't doubt prayer...and i definitely believe in positive energy.
