I was just talking to my husband about this today. I'm so sick of hearing people say "I'm praying for everyone in Japan". It's so trite, empty and meaningless. Donating a buck to the Red Cross or any other aid program would be so much more effective and meaningful than a stupid prayer.
I can see what you mean and how you feel !
I concluded that it is not easy to be an atheist in a world like this ... we think in ways theists cannot ...
the other day I couldn't literally sleep after discussion religion esp Islam with a friend ... he is a great friend and open minded otherwise i wouldn't dare to discuss religion with him . Anyway , I sent him a video on his FB about the origins of religion some other proofs that's prove that there are no scientific miracles in the Koran ... actually they were very good proofs and strong ones that I hoped he would take some time to ponder on them !! his reply was instant and full of bullshit ... I don't think he even read the message or saw te lnks ... I couldn't really sleep becaus I realized that i should be ready to deal with this bullshit for the rest of my life ..........
