RE: Prayer in social media
It'd be funny if we all posted some sort of sarcastic prayer on social media. Praying to universe or just plain stupid stuff Laugh out load. Just to see the reactions. I may actually try that.

There are a lot of religious people who use social media to post prayers, especially on Facebook. Do the people who post a "dear god" followed by words followed by "amen" genuinely think there is a deity who will read their post on the Internet and grant their wish? Do those same people think there is an invisible deity who uses a smart phone or laptop to access social media sites?

I'm not trying to sound condescending, but it's hard to word those questions in a way that doesn't leave such an impression. I'm just trying to understand whether people who post their version of a prayer on a web page somewhere actually think it will do any good. I would think something along the lines of, "My thoughts are with you during this difficult time" would help the intended target feel much better, as opposed to words directed at an invisible (non-existent) being.

I think it's social attention whoring and faddism.

Maybe that too simple an explanation but I don't think there's any real thought that goes into it, just pandering to the media craze and the "keeping up with the Jones'" mentality.

My FB is nothing but atheists. I don't friend request others and don't accept any that aren't atheist. I have no tolerance for religious BS postings on my timeline. I would just call them out and then be deleted. I can barely stand FB anyway.
Laugh out load

Prayer in social media
I had posted something about prayer not being effective in regard to to recent events. No hate messages but the usual "action helps but so does prayer" BS.

You should do it. Christmas is the perfect time to do shit like that. Laugh out load

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Prayer in social media
O Grand Existence, on this day I pray to you, the holiest holy of holies. I thank you for your rationality and your unctuous ubiquity. I thank you from the entire universe down to the quarks and leptons. You are both as strong as a supernova yet as still as matter at absolute zero. You are my energy and my matter. From your entropy to mine, I pray. Mena.

Mena being the opposite of amen. It sucks but it's a start. Smile

A picture popped up on my Facebook feed today of a pile of money. It says "Money will locate you before this month ends. If you beleive type and share Don't ignore this" then says 'Type AMEN and share moneys in your near future'

Facepalm
