What Good Is Prayer ?

http://tonyjordan37814.blogspot.com/

So, just what good is there in praying ? The short answer is absolutely nothing. If you are a Jew, Christian, or Muslim, then you believe in Yahweh alone, or Yahweh and his son Jesus who is said to be of one substance with him. If you're Muslim, then you believe in Allah and his prophet. But in all three cases God is believed to be Omnipotent (All powerful), Omniscient (all knowing), and…

The Tinkerbell Effect

"If you believe," he shouted to them, "clap your hands; don't let Tink die." J. M. Barrie 1860–1937

 

The Tinkerbell Effect and the National Day of Prayer in my way of thinking are identical. When the Disney fairy is about to die, she speaks to Peter Pan and tells him that she could get…

Is This Really Necessary?

God Fearing Guy
IN GOD WE TRUST - This religious display is quite appropriate and didn't need an act of Congress to do.

I'm an Atheist, but I like most Theists. Really, I do. Admittedly I don't agree with them, but I'm also…

Venting on Prayer for Rain

"Dear god, I am asking that you alter the natural state of global weather patterns and focus precipitation in my local area. I am praying to you, oh lord, for rain. I ask this in your name, Jesus Christ, Amen."



<vent>

First of all, if there was a god in charge of making things meteorologically happen, to produce weather at will, then it would be justifiable to blame the sky daddy solely for tornadoes, hurricanes and floods. In fact, it would be within our rights to be…

Help Get 'This Non-Religious Life' to Texas for 'The Response'

Our Story



‘This Non-Religious Life’ was born out of a chance interview on Zombie Popcorn’s other show, ‘The Talking Dead’ which was meant to cover the May 21, 2011 rapture prophecy. At the last minute, Brother Mike of May-212011.com threw his hat into the ring. Bob, interested in being in on the conversation from the start, jumped at the opportunity to be in on the discussion.

After the two-hour live show was over, we decided that the material was too good to allow it to… Continue

Assism

Normally, I tend to be easy going, relaxed and even laid-back, but when the time comes for sucking it up, moving out with determination and purpose or lending a helping hand—I get the job done. I ask no to do it for me, although I might ask for help—once. This morning I received a chain email prayer for the President. I voted for Barack Obama and personally, I like the man even if I don’t agree with everything he does, but…

Give Me Something I Can Feel

I have cancer. I wrestled with chemotherapy for six months then stopped treatment to gather my health. I mention this to tell a story that is related to my cancer. To keep my veins from collapsing during my treatment, a doctor placed a PowerPort on a large blood vessel just under my skin to allow treatment through the port. The surgery takes about 20 minutes. Before they put me under, the doctor asked if I minded if they prayed for me. Without hesitation I said that I didn't mind. After that,… Continue

Story of Religion

Religion easily has the best bullshit story of all time. Think about it.

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky.

He watches everything you do every minute of every day.

And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do.

And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream,… Continue

Cranston, Rhode Island Prayer Banner Removal sparks Religious Meltdown

Following up on a local issue here in Rhode Island that has begun to mushroom into a full fledged First Amendment battle, we return to the issue of the prayer banner that has been ignobly displayed in Cranston West High School since 1958. I first covered the story here. In the interest of full disclosure, I am proud to report that Jessica Ahlquist, who has…

Why Religion and God are Unnecessary in the Modern World

I was originally going to publish this at Associated Content but they don't give up front payments for opinion articles so I published it there under a non-exclusive license and will publish it else where including my blog.



Introduction

Beliefs in gods is as old as civilization as is religion. But is the belief in god(s) and religion necessary? Does it benefit society or does it harm society? It is my belief that a belief in god(s)… Continue

God Needs Your Prayers And Fellowship For His Survival

Does God need your prayers? This is a question I placed recently to some Christian friends of mine. The answer I received was interesting, 'As Christians', they claimed 'we know that "God does not need our prayer but he needs us to pray to him"'. 'Why' I asked, '"Because it is one of his requirements"' they reply. So as God's creation you are required to pray to him according to Christianity.

Also, the Christian religion teach that the reason why God needs us to pray to him… Continue
