National Day of Prayer

Tomorrow, May 1st, is being promoted by as the . So they all get together and pray for... what? It's hard to believe that nobody has ever prayed to end the war or feed all of the starving children or end poverty or rid the world of all suffering, etc. And if they have (and they surely have) and we still have all of these things (and we certainly do), then how the hell can they still believe prayer works?

It's the same old thing. The - just can't lose! If Christians pray for something and they get it, they thank him for answering their prayers. And if the thing they prayed for doesn't happen, they excuse him with something like, "It wasn't God's will" or "God has his reasons." (I wonder what his reasons could be for allowing innocent children to suffer through sexual and physical abuse, starving, and disease.)

And if their god is going to do whatever the hell he wants to do anyway, then why the hell pray in the first place?

No kidding. It's funny (or perhaps not so funny) how those who pray don't seem to realize that.

Exactly. These are the types of realizations that you get when your mind is CLEAR of the murky "logic" used when you are a Christian. Who made God if a design needs a designer? Why has God not answered the prayers of billions to end war and starvation? Why has he ignored the prayers of 2000 years for unity? Why did he ignore his own son's prayer that all Christians be as one? Why pray if God is already in complete control of the outcome? If he's omniscient and knows the future, praying is a tad superfluous.

And on... and on...

How many errors can one religion contain?????
