    Nothings wrong with it, just like there is nothing wrong at laughing at people that honestly think this will solve any problems.

    Pray in one hand and **** in the other. See which one fills up first, lol.

    If you would like I will look them up and if you say it would make a difference I will, but there have been many studies that show prayer does the same thing. Many studies have shown that while nobody can correlate prayer with getting better, those that prayer often times do better when ill.

    Same principle.

    There are chemical reactions in our brain when we experience prayer as well. By your own example, that makes prayer logical.

    (looking for the link, but dont hold your breath, it was like three years ago when I read about the study...)

    Yes, that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you hug or kiss can be explained logically. Im sure you that you really do not experience that same feeling after one prayer.

    "The particular faith that motivates each of us can promote a greater good for all of us," President Obama

    ****ing moron. As if people need prayer and faith to promote a greater good. What a deucebag for infecting the world with talk of prayer and faith.

    Can you back that claim up? and not from a religious organization. I'd like to read the real science.

    Not the same one. The one I experience is peace of mind.
