Good question, It's like a conscience, love or hate you can not touch it, taste it or see it but it still exists. Makes him more tangible. Plus when you are running with a hot pickel it's nice to know someone else with a higher power understands.

If I was to become homeless, jobless, and my family was killed I sure as hell wouldn't give thanks to some imaginary being. If I was religious I'd be livid that some asshole decided to test me by destroying my life. Seriosly, why not just speak to me in a dream or come to me as an image of Jesus on a piece of toast?
I think natural disasters are different than recreational or action related crises. Having experienced both, in a natural disaster it's not identifying or bonding with the crisis so much (although that does happen) it's really putting things in perspective and you either find something to be thankful for (like being alive) or you'll lose it. It's also a shared experience and you are lucky that you lived, even if others didn't, you lost your home, work,etc. It's crazy because of devastation and the rest of the world marches on. in my experience it's a lot different than your personal example, tho i'm not sure i explained it well.
