  1. Prayer changes things

    Atheism is not healthy for children and other living things

      "Prayer changes things"

      Prayer doesn’t not; you are such a LIAR. You have NO proof it changes anything! A great example of prayer proven not to work is the Christians in jail because prayer didn't work and their children died. For example: Susan Grady, who relied on prayer to heal her son. Nine-year-old Aaron Grady died and Susan Grady was arrested.

      An article in the Journal of Pediatrics examined the deaths of 172 children from families who relied upon faith healing from 1975 to 1995. They concluded that four out of five ill children, who died under the care of faith healers or being left to prayer only, would most likely have survived if they had received medical care.

      The statistical studies from the nineteenth century and the three CCU studies on prayer are quite consistent with the fact that humanity is wasting a huge amount of time on a procedure that simply doesn’t work. Nonetheless, faith in prayer is so pervasive and deeply rooted, you can be sure believers will continue to devise future studies in a desperate effort to confirm their beliefs!*!.~

    Sorry, Belief Blog – your determined focus on Christianity, with space in the margins for Judaism and Islam, isn't really adequate coverage of the spectrum of religion in our nation or in our world. No vote from me. You will have to do better.

  8. Reality

    Eliminate the word/fragment filter and restrict screen names to one per person and you will get my vote. And you might want to add some religion scholars to your advisory board. S. Protero does not make the "scholar" grade. For some recommendations see: http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/theories.htm - the names of most of the contemporary historical Jesus scholars and the t-itles of their over 100 books on the subject.

      This is the perfect comment for this particular article. It embodies the spirit of...oh never mind. wtf.

      Wow, gotta love the lunacy of some people. What an idiot you are to believe such an as.sinine conspiracy theory.

    The award may be for attracting the most posters—and that would be true, but as William said: “Fix the …....word filter...” which is a lot of nonsense because if people want to use words that aren't so nice they will get around it somehow.

    An award??? The blog is pixelated rhetorical pornography.

    Award for what? Posting biased stories and attracting some of the most vile and putrid comments on the face of the earth? No thanks.

      Freedom of speech doesn't mean much to some people sadly.

    Maybe if you fix the damn word filter I might get a few of the boys to vote for you.

    And we want cookies before bed!

      Come to the dark side. We have cookies and some nice cocoa.

      Is that you Father Dart?

      I never told anyone!!!!

      Please don't send me to hell, or make Bachman my foster mom again.

      Ok, if you have to do one, please send me to hell. It's more merciful!

      April 26, 2012 at 3:29 pm |
    • Darth Roger's Neighborhood

      William, the time has come to tell you the truth. I already told you that I am your father – sorry about calling you Luke; I might have known your name if I hadn't abandoned you to go on a 30 year drinking binge that included the destruction of a lot of planets and some really ugly and crude incidents at lesbian river-dancing discos, but we won't get into that right now.

      Now I must tell you about your mother. Your mother was not Lady Gaga, so stop dressing like her already! Your mother was . . . (long pause of antic . . . . . . . ipation) . . . Christine O'Donnell. Sorry, I was really drunk and I think she slipped me something, because all I can remember is strange screaming about "Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, and a voice was screaming: Holy Jesus. What are these goddamn animals?"

      I woke up the next morning without any idea who this woman was next to me and why she had a squirrel duct-taped to her head, but she was kind of cute in a MILFY way . . . but then she opened her mouth and started talking. OMG! I told her I had to go because I had a scorching outbreak of gonorrhea and needed to pop by the free clinic, but the damage was done. Nine months later, out you popped with your searing red demon eyes and your screechy demands for a trust fund and, well, I just had to ditch you and go destroy the universe.

      Sorry about leaving you with Lady Gaga for all those years. Well, I'm not really sorry, because I am shallow and self-absorbed, but I think I wold be a lot sorrier about it if I wasn't so sedated.

      So that's the story. Want your cookies now?

    • William Demuth

      So I guess mom wasn't really a virgin after all?

      Well now at least me and Jeebus have something in common!

      As for mom, she is has got the naughty witch thing down pat!

      She woulda been a hit with the Secret Service!

    • J.W

      I think world's most brilliant Christian by itself would be ok lol. I dunno about that next part lol. I could be the world's most open minded Christian.

    • William Demuth

      J.W

      You are the best open minded Christian, and you are the worst open minded Christian, because as of this moment I suspect you are the ONLY open minded Christian
