while i totally agree with the premise, its not a fair study. If you go to Duke for heart surgery, you die.

How do they know that half of the people were not actually praying for them to die because they were indeed atheists like you Gordon?
This article definitely proves God doesn't exist. Damn, I've been so mislead all this time. Thanks for showing me the light. I should have known all along that science would eventually disprove religion.
Seems like all these atheist ramblings of yours is more of an attempt to fill in your own religious insecurities than it is to convince someone else to examine theirs.
You keep believing what makes you happy, man.
I'm not a New Testament fan, but it does say this in the bible ...
Then the devil took Him into the holy city; and he had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God throw Yourself down; for it is written, 'He will give His angels charge concerning You'; and 'On their hands they will bear You up, lest You strike Your foot against a stone.'" Jesus said to him, "On the other hand, it is written, 'You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'" (Matthew 4:5-7)
as i've said many times, i probably respect life more than religious people. i don't eat meat and i make an effort not to kill bugs. atheists are not "bad" or "mean" just because they think religion is BS.
btw, what is the point of all your theist ramblings???
"You shall not put the Lord your God to the test, as you tested Him at Massah."
( I believe Jesus quoted Moses on this one)
(The complete section)
10 And it shall be, when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not, 11 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full; 12 Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.  13 Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. 14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; 15 (For the Lord thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
16 Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.
Religion is the opiate of the asses
