RE: 'Praying"
I'm still convinced that the majority of people who offer prayers never actually pray. That saying "I'll pray for you" is as far as it goes.

That was so me. Pshh. My "prayer life" was almost as non-existent as Gawd himself.

This thread just needs this.

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

When someone has a heart attack, be sure and don't pray for them. It can harm them. Cool

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Prayer works folks, you should try it.

There is no evidence that it does; in fact, quite the contrary.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Two hands working accomplish more than 10,000 clasped in prayer.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

A friend posted on Facebook "I got a job after only looking for 6 weeks. GOD DID THIS! Thank you Jesus"

I was SO tempted to say, "no, you got this because you're qualified and they needed an employee with your skills."

Another, who's cancer recently went into remission, posted about how it was our prayers that cured her (as expected, nothing about the skills of her doctors). And I'm personally dealing with a lingering health issue, am posting status reports, and I keep getting well meaning comments from people that are praying for me… <Sigh> . . You've been praying for me for a month, and I'm still sick, don't you get it??? …

Why don't some of them offer to actually HELP ME with something tangible? Make me dinner, come over and keep me company, just ask if I need anything!! … no, they'd rather sit and pray . . . .
If you have ever been on the front line in combat, you would learn..."There are no atheist in a war zone."
