I know folks can't help it because of their brainwashing into the ancient god thing but prayer is bullshit. I know it's bullshit because of what I witnessed from my youngest memories. When I was born in 1934 the average life expectancy of a White male in the United States was 61. If someone survived their first heart attack they would mope around essentially
incapacitated for a couple of years then die. Cancer was a death sentence. The only treatment was surgery and over half the time the tumor metastasized and spread all through the body and usually they lasted a year after that at the most.

Wednesday evening prayer meetings all over this country were crowded and prayer lists were a foot long. Every family either had a member or a close friend who was sick or dying. People prayed till their knees were bloody and the aflicted suffered and died anyway. Either the almighty supreme being didn't answer the prayers or he doesn't give a damn.

Now the average life expectancy of a White male at birth is 78. Thanks to the spin offs from the moon landing in the late 60's we have sophisticated diagnostic systems, MRI, CTscans, ultrasound, endoscopy, colonoscopy, heart catheterization procedures, stents, bypasses, transplants, stem cell technology, chemo, radiation and limited invasive surgical procedures
which produce much lower mortality statistics. The foolish prayer bunch think god is watching out for them. What about the millions upon millions who died or suffered unmercifully before all this technology and research came about through countless months and years of human dedication and effort..the ones who regardless of the dedication of those who prayed...suffered and died.

A few weeks ago one of my high school mates about 79 years old actually ask all of us to pray for positive results for an abdominal ultrasound and colonoscopy she had scheduled. Turned out she had indigestion.

The total ignorance of those who cling to ancient god worship knows no bounds.

Don't sweat the "Judge-Its". The fundie christians (and other assorted trolls) have little else to fill their days. The fact that they "judge" and run without leaving a reply is evidence that they had nothing to begin with.

As to use of the "Judge it" icons:

Matthew 7:1-3

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

As to all the public "prayer meetings" and other prayer in public:

Matthew 6:5-6
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

This has been another public service announcement from the atheists who know the bible better than the fundies, helping said fundies see the error of their ways. I don't think any of these folks have ever actually read their bibles.

It's confounding how these praying fools continue to believe the bible which clearly tells them that any request made in his name will be granted, and that just don't happen. They are being repeatedly horns-swaggled, and are lining up for even more.

Exactly. My maternal grandmother brainwashed me when I was a child. I lived the church way until I was over sixty years old. Yep....I went through all the motions even was a member of the brotherhood, taught Sunday school, worked on the building committee and others. I tithed my gross. Then one day I admitted to my self that I had never believed any of it...I mean the heaven/hell part. This one verse should tell any intelligent human what a farce the whole thing is:

Revelation 21
8 ~The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death~.

These folks actually believe that anyone who doesn't believe a 2000 year old tale construed by ignorant sheep herders who believed in witches and thought the earth was flat...or, what they believe will burn in fire and brimstone forever. What a load of it.

Religion is a crutch. People who would have zero social life need a "church family" which they can meet with weekly and share stories about their children and their grandchildren and when someone is sick they can all do a little praying. Wednesday evening "Prayer Meetings"
"Hymn Singing" and covered dish suppers are just other ways to satisfy their social needs. When somebody comes at me with "God Works In Mysterious Ways" or "It's Just God's Will" I see a crutch the size of an elephant. When somebody tells me they would have not been able to handle a situation without their "Faith In God" the crutch grows.

At the end of the the day, you're blabbering liars with no evidence of god.

Your mental illness is a burden on society. There should be more regulations against your cults that damage public understanding of science and atheism.

Are you nuts? I'm an agnostic and you obviously didn't read or understand what I keyed.

I always get a laugh off these threads. You have people who believe in something to the exclusion of all logic and rationality on one side. On the other you have these smug anti-theists trying to argue a point based on what they perceive to be logic and rationality. You're all trying to crowbar the triangle shape into the square hole, retards
So let's see.....do you believe that you will rise from the grave, meet a ghost floating on a cloud, fly off on gossamer wings to live in a compound behind pearly gates to sing hymns of praise to the invisible man in the sky forever?

I'll be in the middle of hell getting reacquainted with some of my friends from the 60's and 70's....mostly chicks.
