If i was your neighbor, and everyday at 1PM i placed a 15' ladder on top of my home and yelled "help me, the have me surrounded", you would either think crazy or silly. For all you know, this could be my form or religion. Kinda weird,huh?

"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
My post was meant to refute the previous poster's assertion that prayer is okay because congress has been doing it every morning.
As the court rulings I cited back up, the notion that something is "okay to do because we've always done it that way" is flawed logic.
Likewise, if atheists make the claim (as some do, but not all) "God does not exist", they'd have to back that claim up.
Seeing as how god isn't even really clearly defined and not even a falsifiable proposition, I don't know how either side would go about backing up their claim.
