Some people suggest that god always answers their prayers.
However, I am yet to see proof positive evidence that god does answer prayers and that it isn't all coincidence.
Why would god help someone find their car keys and not heal an amputee?
Prayer now seems to me to be several things including; positive thought, abdication of duty, delusion, desparation, worship, gratitude etc etc.
I would like to see obvious evidence for the answering of prayers but haven't seen anything that is provable beyond anecdote or personal opinion.
God can't lose if the answer to prayers is always:
2. No. (I am god I know what's best for you)
Because no matter what we ask for we may receive by coincidence immediately (Yes), later (Wait) or not at all (No).
In each case we could claim that god has answered our prayer.
I am unsure if there is a god/superior being or not. I certainly do not feel connected to anyone/thing.
This thread is on the debate board. I'll see what comes back.
