← How prayer can crack crime

chawinwords's Avatar Jump to comment 11 by chawinwords

It reminds me of a friend who went to the Casino and regularly played the slots. He kept a list on his calender of his winnings, but not his losses. If a positive claim is made on one side (positive results of prayer), then the failures (negative results of prayer) need a pro/con column as well -- testing the illusion.

Or as advice from an old sage of my youth: "Pray and wish in one hand and poop in the other to see which fills the fastest."

Yep, there are definitely two sides for any claim, just like there are two hands to fill.
