I don't want to come across as a huge douche for replying to the first comment, but this is something that needs to be read. IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE A COMMENTS SECTION WHERE YOU FUCKERS DON'T ARGUE OVER RELIGION AND/OR POST FLAMEBAIT COMMENTS ABOUT IT.

Here it is, a scientific study on Prayer. Results: "1) “Intercessory prayer had no effect on recovery from surgery without complications.” 2) “Patients who knew they were receiving intercessory prayer fared worse.” I'm not going to get into a lot of detail, but essentially they had three groups of patients in a hospital who need the same surgery: ones who weren't getting prayed for, ones who were getting prayed for and knew it, ones that were getting prayed for, but didn't kno

Actually, that logic is flawed. Just because one does not receive what they prayed for or get a "yes" answer to their prayer does not mean that prayer "doesn't work". Ultimately God decides what happens and can decide "yes", "no", or "not right now". Therefore, just because one doesn't get the answer that they hoped for does not mean prayer is ineffective. God does not work like a genie. I have seen many people get what they asked for as well as

"Yes" is a coincidence. "No" can only happen if you die. "Wait" is the flawed logic that Christians use to wait for a coincidence.

@99 So, essentially, you agree prayers are useless. I'm glad we agree on that. If your invisible man in the sky ultimately decides what happens, and he has this grand plan for the human race, you think he'd give a fuck about your prayers? Why should he mess up his grand plan for you little people's wishes? @OP, YDI for being overly religious.

That's called God failing the test on purpose. You don't test someone who wrote the laws of the universe itself, dude. You just don't. They WILL screw with you. By the way, saying that the test was "Double blind" doesn't mean that God didn't know.

I agree with tubasaurus too Anything who ACTUALLY thinks prayers are effective haven't really thought it through. Let's assume you believe in God. What makes you think he's going to suddenly up and change things just because you put your palms flat against each other and spouted some requests? I'll accept prayers as being a method of communicating with God, but he isn't some kind of genie @OP: Ok, whatever... I'm surprised you didn't know that. We may do a lot of things unintentionally, but ye

Religion is merely a method of gaining a false sense of hope and security. It can make certain people happier in life. People like to believe religion is true, so let them. We all know religion is false, but for those who like or need a little more faith in life, they use religion. Leave them be.

Really? You bother to post your atheistic views why? Are you trying to save the world from their horribly ignorant and mistaken ideas? Bring them to reality? What is wrong with you that you choose to post this here? Just STFU about religion. Either laugh at the FML or go away, don't make this a religious argument HERE of all places. Take your stupid views somewhere else.

it's totally possible. sometimes i'll be singing and i'll just zone out, but still be singing. sometimes ur body just goes on autopilot.

All I did was simply pass on the results of a scientific study. I'm not putting my "atheistic views" into this, I just summarized the study. And don't act like some superior douche who just doesn't want anyone to debate religion and then call my views "stupid" in the same post. It's like you're ASKING to drag this out. and to 99 - Yes, the prayers failed. If i say "Dear God, please let Jim W.'s surgery go successfully without complications" two things can happ

#170--now, assuming heaven and God exist, and that God created everyone and everything (bare with me), in heaven, there is no time. And heaven is where God is, so he is able to see every moment of existence (assuming there is a beginning and an end caused by him, keep baring...), and he gave humans free will. That means we can do what we want, but wait, how can God make a plan if we get to choose what happens? Because he KNOWS what happens, he knows what prayers we will say, because he can see

And chveya, God specifically tells us NOT to test him. So what do you think is going to happen? He's not going to give up on his word. If a parent tells their child, "don't watch TV," if the kid decides to watch TV anyway, and the parent finds out, the result isn't just going to be nothing happening, as if he/she had never told his/her kid. It's essentially the same here. God tells us not to test him, and if we do (ie through that study), the result isn't going to be what would th

If this religion had been masterminded by just one manipulative genius, I would be in awe. This is ridiculous. You guys have some way of dodging EVERYTHING that shines doubt on your religion. God doesn't like being tested? Well that's awfully convenient! Look, would it really be a GOOD thing for God (Mr. Omnibenevolent) to care more about his ego and 'not being tested' than he does about the lives of thousands of people this test was being performed on? Is that what you think is right, and mor

actually you did act like a "superior douche." if you don't want people to share their religious views, don't share yours. enough said.

@bbobe900000 This was a double blind study! The people that we're praying for the better of their loved ones didn't know that they were part of a study. They were not the ones that we're "testing" God. So why would they have to suffer for it? Seems that God is unfair!?! Or is this another study that gets closer to proving there is none? Answer for yourself.

Ugh, this explanation is beyond bullshit and is not cannon of prayer. the "yes, no, wait" explanation is obviously a tactic to confuse people in the attempt to reinforce belief in god. Personally I find prayer magic to be absurd.

Reply

You make the mistake of assuming that the simple act of praying HAS to bring about result if God exists. Do you realize how stupid such an assumption is?

Reply

Notice something about what you said. You said that some people got what they wanted, and some didn't. Doesn't it seem possible that maybe, just maybe, the outcomes of their problems were RANDOM and perhaps, not even remotely affected by prayer?

dane cook is an asshole for that. he might be really hott and pretty funny but i dont like him for that one joke

Reply

Agrees with #89, Dane Cook is the most overrated piece of mediocre crap I've ever listened to. How do idiots like this get so famous? A lot of his material is stolen from other (funnier underground) comedians.

Reply

Dane Cook sucks! he is an annoying douche bag. Really he fucking sucks and the people who like him are also douche bags. He is not funny at all, just annoying

Reply

i agree 100%. i love any type of comedy, and almost every comedian, but when watching dane cook, i just felt embarrassed for him, and it just reminds me of a bad family guy sketch (only much more dramatic).

As far as magic words go, I'm more fond of Harry Potter spells. They're probably more effective, actually.
