We could look at it this way.
Religious fanatics rather believe in the Bible with their eyes closed. Atheists rather open their eyes and believe in what they see.
A man is walking and carrying a backpack with him. Suddenly, a gunshot is heard and that man falls down. OMG! He's shot! Everyone rushes to check on him. Wait! He's okay! Apparently, the bullet didn't get to him. It was stopped by a Bible that he had in his backpack! Praise the Lord! God was watching over him! Hooray!
Now, let's look at this from a different point of view. What if this man was carrying a phone book instead of a Bible? The effects would be the same. What would people say then? "Oh, dude... you're lucky! Wow, that phone book caught the bullet for you! Whew!" In other words, he was just lucky... no mention of God's involvement.
So, in this case... people are being realistic. To me, a bullet was stopped by a book... Bible, phone book, any book... that's all that matters to me. I'm not going to start "Praising the Lord" if that particular book was a Bible. It's still a book. In other words, that person was just lucky.
