"The implicit idea behind "prayer" is that if the individual remains without prayer, he remains a single unit.  But if the subject of prayer, then he's absorbed into the tribe.  His formerly solitary tribulations now become…"

"Most of the time, I just keep quiet, but I have been known to reply: "No need to pray for my benefit, but if it makes you feel better, go right ahead."  Comes off a bit snarky, though.   And when my religious friends ask for…"

"Christ. Yeah, 4x is not enough, if you're dealing with a fairly potent, concentrated toxin, before you start diluting it.  That's only a 1/100,000,000 dilution.  You could potentially build up a good deal of the original…"

"Officially, I believe it was supposed to be 4X, but there was actually huge variation from lot to lot."

"To put it another way, if you're going to give someone water, don't dehydrate it first. What the hell dilution were they using?  10x dilution is sufficient to make even pure bleach perfectly safe to consume."

Humble Pie replied to Angel Chasse's discussion What do you guys say when someone offers to pray for you?
"Well, someone needs to tell it to the homeopaths.  If water was going to cure anybody, we'd all be cured already. On the other hand, the poisons sold as "homeopathy", even though they are in much too low of dilutions to be…"

"I'd specifically be sure to share my thoughts, any time the mindless, prayer-squad stuff showed up on my page.  That's why I don't have Facebook, either.  I'd love the discussion, but I can't afford the time, right…"

Welcome, Angel! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Women Atheists, Female Atheists, and possibly Feminist Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

On a personal note, I've developed an animated gif technique, sort of “pull quote marries slideshow”. Samples are scattered across various groups, but you can find them easily by going to my twitter account. Each tweet has a link (after the description and before the hashtags) to a visually rich example here at Atheist Nexus. If you like them, please follow me
