Robertson isn't the only one praying, and it was downgraded for all , so equal safety , equal .. even for the mockers and the haters ..for now.. so the fools can for now continue in their foolishness.
the rest of his people will continue to play Seek and Find, ask and it is done . Obey.. then command and it happens... baby games with him..

Rev 22:11

Let the one who is doing harm continue to do harm; let the one who is vile continue to be vile;

let the one who is righteous continue to live righteously; let the one who is holy continue to be holy.”

I think Pat Robertson and all of his ardent supporters should go on the beach in the path of the downgraded hurricane and pray for it to stop and go away. If that happens, I will no longer be an atheist. Hurricanes can become weaker without prayer. Taking credit for one losing strength because of prayer is like Trump taking credit for a good economy that started long before he was in office.

Default Pray to decrease force of hurricanes?

I listened to George Noory on Coast to Coast AM and a caller suggested listeners pray to make Hurricane Florence less dangerous. I'd heard some Christians/Evangelicals were doing that, so I figured, why not? It would be an interesting experiment. I know Noory had made it rain a few years back, possibly more than once in difference drought stricken areas, when he asked his listeners to pray for rain. In one case it flooded!

I woke up this morning to hear Florence which had been predicted to strengthen, had actually weakened to a Category 2!

So keep praying that it totally fizzles out!

But you wanna bet he and those that prayed with him will take credit for it?
Actually, I don't care what forces weakened it, I'm glad they did but he should have asked for less "water" , too

The bible warns about times when good is viewed as evil and evil is viewed as good...shouldnt be a big surprise to actually see that happening.

The weirdest thing here is that people are paying attention to Robertson, keeping up with his activities, actively thinking and talking about him.

The guy is a waste of time, and not worthy of attention. But you clowns are facilitating him and supporting him with your attention. You're part of the problem in keeping him a household name. He thrives on attention, and without it, would fade away into obscurity.

There are millions of people in the paths of major hurricanes that make landfall. Thus, it is abundantly obvious that as those hurricanes are approaching, there are many people (by definition, even a small percentage of millions still qualifies as 'many') praying that they dissipate, turn back out to sea, whatever.

Let me guess...

When a hurricane does weaken, or turn, it's proof that prayer works!

And when a hurricane gets stronger, or swerves toward land when it otherwise appeared that it would not make landfall, that totally doesn't count and isn't evidence of anything... right?

Same with droughts. Do you really think that this radio clown was the first person to pray for rain during said drought? Obviously, some stricken farmers were praying, because invariably, some subset of them would be pious Christians who believe in the efficacy of prayer. And since all droughts end sometime, it is inevitable that whenever any drought ends anywhere, some people were praying for it to end - just as it's inevitable that whenever any drought persists anywhere, some people were praying for it to end.

You don't appear to really understand the concept of the scientific term 'experiment'.
