    I believe there have been studies on whether or not prayer works.

    Turns out it doesn`t but it can`t hurt so knock yourself out.

    Gerry1of1,

    Actually, I seem to recall that in those studies people being prayed for in hospital had measurably worse outcomes than the others.

    Prayer is wishful thinking.
    And wishful thinking is good!

    But it will never replace actual pain killers.

    Lil story/joke I like that illustrates prayer:

    There was a flood, and a man was stranded on his roof. The waters were rising so he prayed for God to save him. Just then a man in a boat came, offering to rescue him. But he declined, saying "No thanks, God will save me!". The waters rose further and the guy was now perched on top of the chimney. Another boat came offering rescue, but again he declined, "No thank you, God will save me!". The waters rose even higher and the man was now treading water. A helicopter came and a man was winched down to rescue him. But again he refused rescue, "No thank you, God will save me!". The man drowned and went to heaven. In heaven he asked God. "Why didn`t you save me?", God replied "I sent 2 boats and a helicopter, what more did you want?!".

    Prayer may seem useless, but on the other hand don`t wait for supernatural intervention.

    @danthew- Except there is no good reason to believe that prayer had anything to do with the 2 boats and a helicopter in your anecdote. Life presents me with all sorts of wonderful opportunities, and I never pray. Prayer is beneficial in that it allows a person to get in touch with their intention, but there is no evidence that it influences events outside of one`s self.

    The closest thing I`ve experienced to a miracle occurred under the influence of psilocybin mushrooms- after a year of daily pain from a sprained ankle and a fresh re-injury, I was healed overnight. Haven`t had any pain in it in the past 4 years. Even then, I didn`t pray for it to happen- it just did.

    If Debbie learned to spell, perhaps God would give her a washing machine. And a Mercedes Benz. Her friends all drive Porche`s (FYI).

    @Trojan- and YOU failed to point out that you don`t use an apostrophe to pluralize a noun. "Porche`s" would be incorrect even if Porsche didn`t have an s in it.

    I genuinely don`t understand how, in 2011, people still believe in things like Gods when we now know the answers to the questions that previously God was used to fill.

    @Siora:

    Do we now? Well, how about you explain how the matter and energy that caused the big bang came into existence. Because I was under the impression that energy and matter can`t be created nor destroyed. But silly me, I know I shouldn`t use science in my arguments, just a lot of voodoo crap, right?

    As to the post, as a Christian I really can`t stand the Facebook posts from some of them.

    at one point of time nearly everyone believed in it (back then it made more since then what science did) and you weren`t allowed to argue. This continued for thousands of years. A lot of people don`t think about things and just go by whatever their parents taught them. People also like to cloud logic with optimism, so this will continue for who knows how long.

    @FoSchizle:
    Before making comments on big bang, do some research. Some rules about big bang:
    1. It is not a singular event. The big bang theory primarily involves the proven continuing expansion of our universe.
    2. The birth of the universe is considered to be the point of time that our universe began to expand from a single point in space-time.
    3. Because time only exists in space, and space only exists in the universe itself, there is no time outside of the universe.
    4. Due to part 3, nothing outside of the universe could have `caused` the big bang, because nothing outside of the universe exists in the same space-time.
    Now with these things you have just learned, there is STILL the possibility that our universe can begin to contract, eventually closing in on itself until a point where the only possible reaction could be to expand from a single point in space-time once again (similar to solar system or galaxy formation) and someone else can ask this stuff in a

    @ForSquirel yes you are wasting your time praying to imaginary dude

    @doopliss75 science is trying to prove or disprove the big bang theory with a particle accelerator religion are trying to prove their "theory" by pushing it in to the mind on young children...
