Comedian Tracy Morgan Thanks Everyone but God in First Interview Following Accident

Earlier today, comedian Tracy Morgan gave his first interview since being in an accident that killed one of his friends.

During the segment with Matt Lauer, Morgan thanked lots of people involved in his recovery: The doctor, the nurses, his family, the police, the passers-by on the side of the road who stopped to help him out, his drivers, the people piloting the helicopter that took him to the hospital, etc.

Never once did he mention God.

How refreshing to hear someone give credit where it’s due. That’s not to say Morgan is an atheist — he’s never said that as far as I can tell — but it was a notable omission for an interview involving anyone recovering from a serious accident.

Reader Ryan, who pointed this out, says it reminds him of Daniel Dennett‘s “Thank Goodness I’m Alive“:
