Well, so much for free will. It turns out that we're all just puppets, and all we are really allowed to do is choose a puppeteer.
If that's the case, I'll take Frank Oz.

Car accidents aren't random (usually). They're the result of one (or, more often, both) drivers doing stupid things behind the wheel.
And what David said.

Doesn't satan have better things to be doing than causing fender benders? Cmon, give the devil some credit.

But apparently it is a hard concept to explain.

Some one needs to read the book of Job.

Here's a strange and revolutionary concept to consider:

Unless you can find something bad the victim has done. Then it's God's will again. The goalposts, they're a-shifting...

Ouch, My Head
And if my car accident led me to god, is the accident a good thing and thus caused by god? What if the accident also killed my little girl? Is the accident also a bad thing caused by satan?
As for my raise, if I donated the extra money to the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science, is the raise now a bad thing and thus caused by big daddy satan?
I'm sorry, Lord_Peac|-|, but this concept seems far to superficial.

Karma plays a role in "My Name is Earl".

It's not a hard concept to grasp.
True but it does not necessarily mean that's what's the root cause of every good or bad event.

What a moron!
So traffic accidents have nothing to do with drivers being drunk, incompetent or talking on their freaking cell phones, then?
Also, if something good happens to an atheist, is that due to god, too?

a mind far far away
It's called Karma, and it's an eastern concpet. You're goiong straight to hell.

Of course they don't happen randomly.
There are morons who don't know when to put their goddamn cell phones away, therefore there are car crashes.
