The Power Of Prayer
Since the high price of gasoline puts a big burden on individuals and the economy, the Atheologist would like to thank everyone who participated in prayer vigils back in April and May. We are now seeing the results at the pumps. In the Atheologist's neck of the woods prices for regular gas have not been above $3.00 in a long time. The Atheologist actually paid $2.839 the other day.
Obviously then, prayer does work. Look at how much money and time was wasted on studies such as this one which supposedly showed that praying is a useless endeavor. Some people won’t be convinced until God grows back a missing limb or organ through the power of prayer. Can you believe that? Maybe those people should ride their bikes or walk to work from now on.
With his wedding anniversary coming up in a few months, the Atheologist is also very thankful that the price of gold, (look at the chart below!), has been dropping since those good people started their gasoline prayers. It seems that God doesn’t differentiate between commodities.
(Luckily the Mrs. doesn’t read the Atheologist’s blog or it would ruin the surprise. She thinks that she’s getting flowers and a Dunkin Doughnuts gift card.)
