After Teen Finds Diamond, She Names It After the Person Who Helped Her Find it: God

Arkansas’ Crater of Diamonds State Park is the only public diamond-producing site in the world that is open to the public. Over 75,000 diamonds have been found at this site since its discovery in 1906 — and on Saturday, another diamond was found.

14-year-old Tana Clymer discovered a 3.85-carat diamond, making it the 396th found this year. The teen had this to say about her discovery, which could be worth tens of thousands of dollars:

“Then, when I touched it, I thought it was a marble. I think God pointed me to it. I was about to sprint to join my family, and God told me to slow down and look. Then, I found the diamond!

Of course He did…

Clymer has since named the diamond “God’s Jewel,” but she’s far from original. Just a couple of months ago, a 12-year-old boy found a 5.16-carat diamond in the same park. He named his find “God’s Glory Diamond.”

I know they’re just kids, but surely there’s a better explanation than a Higher Power to explain why people keep finding jewels in a park where thousands have been found over time. Will anyone volunteer to teach them about logical fallacies?

In the meantime, next time my keys get lost, I’ll just slow down, look around, and start talking to God. And then, I’ll stop wasting my time and retrace my steps.
