The "Power" of Prayer
« on: March 02, 2009, 03:32:13 PM »

What do you think? Is there a supernatural being who is able to connect to the telepathic signals that you emit when you put your hands together, close your eyes and bow your head?

And if they are able to tune in, are they prone to giving a shit about what you are requesting of them?

I believe in telepathy. Our intuition is a type of telepathy. I believe in humans it is under-developed and not for our time. The act of praying is telepathy. Who knows, in the future when Bible prophecies reveal themselves, that the people of the new order, won't be using telepathy to communicate? I think it is feasible and anyone knowing the phone is going to ring or someone is coming to your door, knows it is feasible too.

Why are you bringing up religious shit BraIn, you're a sceptic. You're just doing this to bump post counts, aren't chew?

No why in hell's half-acre would any "superior being" give a flying rat's ass about what we inferiors would want? (Except maybe to fuck with us for sake of amusement)

The whole point of this forum is to debate topics such as this. The reason why it came to mind is because I was watching the live coverage and reading the comments about the 4 football players who disappeared in 21' boat while on a fishing trip. One of them was found thus far clinging to the boat after a day.

http://www.tampabays10.com/news/custom/story.aspx?storyid=98476&catid=20

Putting aside the sheer idiocy of venturing 15 foot waves in the open ocean in a 21 foot boat, all the people can do now is say they are "praying" that god intervenes on their behalf and does something. If a fraction of all the people "praying" would  get off their asses and charter a boat or a plane to go look for them, Im pretty sure the chances of finding them would be much better.

Praying to God is a last resort.

If a person believed in prayer, then the correct procedure is to pray and then set into action a positive outcome....meaning, you prepare to go looking for them....in the right direction...the ocean is a huge place and when you're lost in it, you're not even a blimp on it.

Check out all the nutbag comments about god and praying. My poignant comments to all those people (to the effect that maybe Neptune, god of the sea would fashion a giant tidal wave and miraculously sweep them to shore in a giant hand made of water) were censored.

Like the ENTIRE basis for religion, most only pray when they are shit scared or in the face of something that they are powerless to control.  Its almost like some sort of child like retrenchment from that nasty wasty old world praying for some bright ray of hope.  The real pisser is that 99/100 prayers are obviously unanswered but the 1/100 positive outcome is hailed as proof of gods existence  :rotf:

Personally I think that these cunts with religion should buck up their fucking ideas and pray in a church at least 20 times a day so that we can unclog some of the fucking roads.

Can I get a FUCK NO up in here? Seriously. If I see one more story with 500+ comments of "Praying for you/prayers are with the families" etc - I'm going to fucking puke. Does society ever get intelligent enough to know you have to get yourself off your ass and do something or just deal with being sad when you can't do something.

I serve a God that can take the impossible & make it possible. Through human eyes, we see no hope-no chance of survival, but this is the perfect setting for my Jesus to grant us a miracle, I'm just excited to see how he will do. What good news!

These people are really convinced they are doing something constructive by sitting there and sending some kind of telepathic signal to a supreme being asking him to intervene..

Serge, how about you spend your time saying a prayer for these unfortunate men instead of making asinine comments. Show some respect and compassion.

I don't wish any harm on these football players and hope (not pray) that they are found alive as much as the next guy but Im sorry to say that if there IS a supernatural being tuning in to the thoughts of these silly people on the Christian Emergency Thought Broadcast System, then it's rather presumptuous to think that their God would want to act on their behalf, isn't it? He's all knowing and has a firm grasp on things, why the fuck are people trying to tell him what to do???

I mean, these 4 four people, 2 of them of which are rich NFL players, took a 21 foot boat at least 35 miles out in the ocean with no gps or emergency beacon which they can easily afford on a day when the forecast called for 15 foot waves and 40f/5c degree temperatures and they weren't even wearing their life vests when the boat flipped over.

As revengeful and bitter as we all know know the mythical Christian god to be, maybe this is his way of sending everyone a message to check the fucking weather reports and dont go out on a 21 foot boat in the open ocean when the seas are forecasted to be 15 feet.

What Christian out there wants to make a bet with me that between a divine miracle and supernatural intervention OR death by hypothermia after being in cold ocean waters for 2 days, death will be the end result? Not much different than the ending to the Titanic and those who were praying with all their might back then.

I'm about to have a cup of tea. I have a cup of tea because I made it, not because I prayed for it.

I wish I could comment on that newspaper page but obviously I got flagged and all my comments are censored. That;s why we have places such as this to speak out on things without censorship from some hypersensitive dickwad who doesn't agree with what you are saying, deleting your comments.

I find the arrogance of these righteous religious people unsettling. That they put themselves above other people on account of their "praying" and some cockmong like "Joe" chastises others for speaking their mind instead of praying shows the medieval mentality that these people have.

I have no doubt that if I had a boat, the time and lived in that area, that I would be out in the sea looking for those people right now instead of sitting on my ass and "praying" like Joe which is akin to doing jack shit and hoping that someone else does the work that you should be doing yourself. I'd love to have an exchange with some of those morons and hope some of them find this thread via Google.

The fuckers are dead.  Period.  Praying won't bring them back to life.

Besides, fuck Smith.  I had the misfortune to be raised a Lions fan, and the prick was going free agent anyway.

A LIONS fan? AHAHAHA, that puts you in the company of Sinister!  :rotf:

Ole Sin must have violated his probation in the celebrations after they finally fired Matt Millen.

As more time passes and more news gets out, it appears that stage is set for "Debra's" Jesus to perform a miracle. Hopefully, he won;t let her down and come through. The Coast Guard are about to call the search off in 2 mins, 6:30 local time.

Quote
The only man rescued so far from an overturned boat in the Gulf of Mexico told Coast Guard investigators a bizarre story about the fate of the other three.
...

Nick Schuyler, 24, told investigators that about two to four hours after their boat capsized Saturday in rough seas, one of the two professional football players gave up hope and let himself be swept away, according to family members of two of the missing men.

A few hours later, the second one did the same.

"We were told that Nick said the two NFL players took their life jackets off and drifted out to sea," said Bob Bleakley, whose son Will, 25, is also still missing.

 With former Tampa Bay Buccaneers Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith gone, only Schuyler and Bleakley remained clinging to the boat.

Then, sometime Monday morning, Will Bleakley thought he saw a light in the distance and decided to take off his life jacket and swim to it, hoping to get help.

"I think he was delusional to think he could swim someplace," Bleakley said.
