  1. I heard that Mr. T once pulled a kid outta a coma after praying for him.
    So the question is, since everyone who knew the kid had prayed. was it the fact that it was Mr. T, or was it that one extra praying person?

  2. Definitely Mr. T

  4. Praying: A practice that involves one to do absolutely nothing useful and make them still think they’re helping.

  5. Yeah, the comic is fine and dandy and all, but how about some empirical evidence? I want to see that prayer really does work, and I want hard proof that it isn’t just the suggestion that affects people, but rather some actual divine force interceding on behalf of someone’s prayer. At best, prayer is nothing more than a placebo.

  6. Ah, but what language to pray in? Which prayer? Which version of the bible to pull the prayer from?

  7. “At best, prayer is nothing more than a placebo.”
    Well, duh; but if it helps people or at least gives them hope, I don’t see a problem with it.

    I never said you had to have a problem with it, EB. False hope is still hope, after all. Still, it would be nice to know that prayer actually works for the reason it is supposed to work, not because of the power of suggestion.

  9. Praying continuously has basically the same effect as sitting around the house smoking pot all day, you get your own little type of “high” but don’t accomplish a damn thing.

    I’ll stick to the pot, it’s a better high.
