Default God & Tebow: What do you believe?

"According to a recent survey, 43.3 percent of people believe divine intervention plays a role in Tim Tebow's success with the Broncos.

Only 42.3 percent of those familiar with Tebow said divine intervention does not play a role in Tebow's success (14.4 percent gave no opinion), meaning there are more respondents who do believe Tebow is receiving a little extra help than there are who don't." (in this survey


This breaks down the demographics of the recent survey.



So where does the 'Mane' stand on this issue?

Do YOU believe that any of Tim Tebow’s success can be attributed to Divine Intervention?

We joke it about it, but it comes down to pure heart and desire to do whatever it takes to win. That passion is felt, throughout the whole team...

His success can be attributed to his work ethic, skills, and insatiable appetite to succeed. These are God-given. Does God directly intervene in games for him? No. But God preserves the universe in being and acts in and with every being in all they do, directing them to their final end. It's called Divine Providence, which I do believe exists.

Religion is fiction used to help start society. People needed laws and morals to life in giant populations. Religion helped with this. This means the answer is no.

Not directly. A lot of Godly attributes, hard work, determination, not wasting your free time doing sinful things like drinking, partying, etc. If you live your life with these attributes you will see yourself excel at whatever you focus on.

You don't have to believe in God to have these attributes. However there are a lot of people who do believe in God who have them and they enjoy the benefits.

No, other than God created the physical universe, that's as far as his involvement in the NFL goes.

I was fully expecting you of all people to vote yes.... As I did.

Since there is no such thing as "divine intervention" then, no. But there is the untapped power of human beings, and that is their capacity to believe. Belief itself is a power. Also, if someone believes strongly enough, they tend to move the stresses of performance aside and their own performance becomes more relaxed and confident. In other words, the guy who makes the biggest mistake is often the guy who worries the most about making the biggest mistake. If you truly believe you are in the hands of a superior power, you free yourself from self-judgment, and ergo, perform better. The superior power is yourself.

If we're talking about Tebow getting special favors from god, not just no but hell no.

I used to believe that the miracle like aspect of the Tebow saga came from Tebow's "belief" creating it.. like a placebo effect...

But after this bizarre 3:16 game I am leaning the other way... there may be something really weird going on here. Tebow may be some kind of prophet.

I might beg to differ that evolution is divine intervention.

its just ridiculous that people in this country are stupid enough to believe god, jesus, a higher power... whatever would or even could come down and just change the results of a football game, tebow was good in college, hes decent in the nfl. he has his moments and hopefully one day he'll be great. theres nothing to it besides it is what it is, and religion and/or god has in no way changed anything

Why not run this line of BS by Tim Tebow, I would love to hear his response.

What would that option be then?

I mirrored the Poll so we could compare our results to the national survey later on.

btw, good responses by all so far. Very interesting.

It makes Tebow who he is, and thus has both a direct and indirect influence on his play.
