  •  Slightly more pathetic than Obama (0+ / 0-)

    Afterall, he ended his pathetic, useless speech on the BP crime with an appeal to prayer.

    What a fool since prayer has been shown by scientific experiments to not work.

    •  Actually there is some evidence that prayer (5+ / 0-)

      helps people's mental states in difficult time and I think that was what the president was referring too. But if you have a knee-jerk opposition to anything religious, you wouldn't understand.

      •  Helping people's mindsets... (0+ / 0-)

        ...is not equal to fixing the gulf.  Prayer is a waste of time when it comes to the oil spill and just about everything else tangible.

        and what You need to do is to demonstrate that sectarian/religious prayer is more efficacious than secular relaxation/psychological techniques

        prayer is inherently religious -- claiming a benefit of a religious behavior that can not be achieved through secular non-religious techniques requires more than Your say so that there is "some evidence" -- Ya know, REAL actual evidence
