    It causes harm if people see prayer as an alternative to personal responsibility.

    You think that's what the bible teaches? People use all kinds of stuff as an alternative to personal responsibility, and it ain't nothin's fault but their own.

    I see the analogy with government that you're trying to draw, but don't think it holds. It is much easier to predict what happens with government, with prayer you don't assume any outcome.

    Again, there's nothing wrong. It's just silly.

    There's a difference. Logic is not used when prayer is used. Logic can explain why we feel that way we do when we feel emotions.
    There's a chemical reaction in our brain when we experience these emotions. That explains it logically.

    You think chemical reactions explain the warm fuzzy of hugs but not prayer?
