How is prayer a non scientific property? It may involve some non testable things (like god), but assessing whether or not it works is completely within the bounds of science. "Prayer works" is a positive claim, and it is testable. It has failed many tests.<quoted text>
I don't pay too much attention to a scientific study of a non-scientific property.
Besides, I KNOW that prayer works. God has answered my prayers.
You don't have to believe me, but you're being pointless by arguing it with me.
And you can believe that all you want, but the evidence says that prayer doesn't work; also, you should realize that your strong belief means about as much to a skeptic as someone strongly believing in ms. cleo.
And how am I being pointless? I don't plan on changing your mind, but you can't expect to make claims that are substantiated only by your strong belief and not expect to get called out. Prayer doesn't work, as far as we know, and it is easy to explain why people believe so strongly in it without invoking the actions of some unknown deity.
