Kneeling, folding hands, and closing my eyes does not serve me, looks ridiculous, and showy. My relationship with God does not depend on such theatrics.
Or, I'm guessing, coin tosses.

Really? You prayed to a God you don't think exists. He must have been surprised to hear from you.

My experiment seemed to indicate that prayers to the Giant Space Crabs were more effective than prayers to the Christian God.

My only problem with this story is that I am in the firm conviction
that enlistment in today's armed forces is wickedness and a snare
of the devil.
If the archangel Michael saved this man, and for others he may save,
rest assured it's not because he approves of American foreign policy.

Obviously god (and St Micheal) would object to all the aid and relief the USA provides, not to mention the BILLIONS Israel gets so they can provide FREE COLLEGE and government funded abortions on demand.

If the god of the OT doesn't annihilate America, he had better seriously apologize to the indigenous peoples and ALL minorities..

But hey, that is just me flipping tables in the temple with Jesus...
