I’ve always wondered what the psychology behind prayer is; why do people mutter some words and hope that someone, somewhere will pay special attention to their specific needs–is this sanity?
I wonder how far we have evolved from the primitive man worshiping stones and fire. Hold on! I think they are even better off, they where at least believing in something they see, something physical, we, are spiritual and…I digressed, back to prayers.
….If prayer worked, Christians would be richer, healthier, more powerful than the rest of us, and have all of the most attractive mates. Yet, two of the richest, most powerful men in the world, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are atheists – and philanthropists who give away billions. If prayer worked, there would be no crutches, wheelchairs, hairpieces, dentures, hearing aids, eyeglasses, seat belts, airbags, etc. etc. We are absolutely surrounded by the evidence. We see it everyday….
