Re: Instances of prayer in the series "Forensic Files"
I’m pretty sure most people would be praying their hearts out while the bad guy tortured and killed them. You found two that lived through their ordeal. Hundreds of others didn’t.

This is answered by probability. Statistics.

Prayer is ineffective because your god doesn’t answer prayer. It can’t. It ain’t there.

Re: Instances of prayer in the series "Forensic Files"
So I think your assumption that people do pray in such dire circumstances is unfortunately not true.

Like your knowledge of geology, genetics, politics, your knowledge of human psychology under stress is also woefully inadequate.

God doesn't always give us what we pray for. There are certain categories of prayer He seems to always answer for me but other categories He doesn't, so I figure He doesn't want me to have what I ask for in those cases.

Interesting how gods's's answers to prayer break down into standard bell curves.

Those are the ones I want to document here.

So this is to be an ongoing thing?

Good. More to ridicule.

Re: Thread is for reporting answered prayers
Well, here's praying your program has more saved victims.

This thread has a high entertainment potential.
