It is YOUR assertion that, and I quote "Number one....prayers are NEVER answered... "
If you can't provide evidence for that, then it's only your opinion.
So which is it? Fact or opinion?
The number of prayers "answered" in any way is less than doing nothing, according to statistics. Not that you'd care or even actually accept that fact.

First you would have to demonstrate a god exists and we can go from there.

Rather you repeatedly demonstrating you are unable to understand let alone answer questions.

Sadly you are a typical ignorant racist bigot with a below average IQ.

No, I had it right the first time. Y'all atheists all got this huge, unwarranted ego that's fun to poke at.
Alright, let's compare:

1. Christians think this entire universe was "created" for them, that's egotistical and self-centered, lots of false pride there actually.

2. Christians think humans are "unique," ignoring the fact they cannot show how, which makes them egotistical and self-centered, even more false pride.

3. Christians think that the Earth is the only place in a vast universe that CAN have life, overflowing with arrogance already we can chalk this up to just being self-centered.

Atheists, we don't believe any of that nonsense, we admit, rather often, that this world is but a grain of sand on the beach that is the universe, we are not unique, we are animals. So .... how are we more arrogant than you?

Your view of it is slave to to its position. Your use of the term set is archaic, and is indicative of an assumption you are the center of the universe.

Your deficiency in understanding the English language has evidently affected your world view and logic system. You dumb shit.

The world needs people to wash dishes, collect trash, scrub toilets and dig ditches too, so we see there are plenty of roles for someone on your level.

Remember your place RR.

You're still using that burden-of-proof fallacy.

I know this has been explained to you before - I think I've done it myself.

Now are we including minor accidents like him bumping his head getting out of a car Magooing around?

I'd also like the odds on how many fingers he will chop off himself in the next few years?

HA !

If you were smart, you'd know that nobody is smart because of a belief system.

But you're not smart, you're just an atheist parrot with the power of google.

For starters, you're the one claiming to know what 2 billion people think about.

You don't call that arrogance?

No you are not.

And again you are making assumptions based on your own sad faith.

1/ did I say It was me who prayed?
2/ did I mention to whom the prayer was offered?

Darfur. People the world over kept up a'prayin' and prayin'. Them babies just kept on a'starvin' and starvin'. How do we know that wasn't God's answer, right? Ok, God didn't just want them to die, to make some ineffable point beyond our ken. No, it was his will that they be born, because of that whole sanctity of Life rule of his, and then suffer a long slow lingering death, to horrible to imagine.

I don't know about you, but some time ago, even as a believer, I had to release God from such responsibility. There may be a God, but it obviously doesn't answer prayers.

Is that what's known as evidence 'round here?
