If you believe that your god is omnipotent and we are all his children and he offers his protection through prayers....
I'll tell you why!
Because you're all hypocritical stupid pussies!
For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.
Do not dread the disease
If you pray hard enough, you can make water run uphill. How hard?
Prayer is the worst thing religion has done to society. The concept of prayer has convinced billions of otherwise sane humans that they can merely say an incantation and "help" someone. It has convinced billions of people that other forms of help aren't as important or necessary.
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer*
Believe is only applicable to belief in Jesus Christ (if he existed).
Whatever is limited to anything that is possible within the laws
of nature and physics to be deemed possible to occur on its own.
One of my good friend's dad just suffered a stroke. He's alive, but not doing well. Everyone is offering prayers, literally writing out prayers on facebook.
It just aggravates me that people are literally doing nothing but talking to an imaginary friend to help this person, and acting like they've made a difference towards bettering this man's health. Prayer, does, not, work. You have done nothing but pretend to have helped this man.
Even if it did, why ask the God who just gave this man a stroke to make him well again?
HE JUST GAVE THE GUY A STROKE, EVER THINK OF THAT SHIT?!
We need to stop valuing the act of prayer as an effective means of contribution towards well-being. It's not. Stop it, if you want to actually help, donate to a charity that funds research for stroke victims - go visit the person and sit next to them in their time of need. Give what you can spare to the family to help them in their trying times.
Don't, fucking, pray and pretend like you've done something meaningful.
It's not an excuse to do nothing. It's a way to feel good about yourself, while doing nothing.
