    Prayer does do something. It helps those whp have been affected by this tragedy cope with their loss.

    If thats all it does then it's well worth it.

    I didn't feel enough hate from you in that post, maybe you should try it again this time with more feeling.

    Exactly,

    Takes allot of faith to believe there's no God.

    Atheist have to rely on Faith to justify their position that there's absolutely no God.

    This is a stupid argument, but more to the point, completely off topic. If you have wish to discuss the vast amount of faith an atheist has, take it to the Philosophy forum. Don't need to gunk up another thread with this tangent.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Makes me glad to be American and to have the Right to own a pistol.
    Ahh its the "more guns means less shootings" crowd. Awesome philosophy there. Blame this on their strict gun control laws. How many school shootings have they had down there the last couple of decades? I mean, if you are going to criticize the gun laws for that one shooting why not take a wider and more comprehensive look at shooting results eh?

    Doubt it'll happen. In fact, they'll keep letting in refugees from the Muslim world. Pro-Multiculturalist yahoos never learn.

    You can no more disprove Gods existence than I can prove it.

    We both need faith to justify our beliefs.

    Deal with it, your'e one of the faithful.

    Remain calm and if there is really nothing you can do, wait for someone to come help you. If there is something you can do, do it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
