"Hi Gregg, this response appeared 4 times. I'm guessing you had a computer hiccup, so I deleted the other three. After all, one rule should really be singular :)"

"In a region where the right hand is used to eat and the left to clean post-defecation material from your arse, cutting off a hand forces the person to eat and clean his arse with the same hand. That is considered to be heinously gross."

The Psychology of Prayer

Posted on November 15, 2015 at 11:56am 14 Comments

Before I start, let me emphasize this is opinion without source evidence other than general personal experience and you can dismiss it at will, although it would be nice to hear why you choose to do so.



We are faced with people of faith who claim their prayers work and they receive guidance from their deity. Further, it doesn't seem to matter how profound or minuscule the subject matter of the prayer - the claim remains that these prayers work.



Now we can easily refute… Continue

A while back, I had a long chat with my niece, trying to explain what I believe is the inevitability of events and the consequent contradiction of the concept of free will.  She puttered off and posted on her page/site/whatever, what was probably a two hour conversation condensed into a short explanation.  I post that here to give the benefit of brevity to anyone who is interested.

Thanks for the welcome. I am a very weird Christian in the fact that, though I'm very religious, I have this almost fascination with other religions. I also have several Athiest friends, but any time religion comes up, we end up fighting. I guess I'm hoping this website will help me not only clear up some misconception about Christianity ( of which ere are many ) but maybe gain inside into how to talk to an Athiest about religion without fightin with them.
