Of course Mississippi is near to bottom state when it comes to education.
Prayer has the same 50/50 chance of being granted as wishing on a star or doing nothing at all. Most religious people are too ignorant of reality to realize that.
Baltimore is far worse on the education totem pole. I live in Mississippi. Just because there are a lot religious people down here, does not make them stupid
@snytiger6 I think it takes irrationality to embrace religion. In other words, the religion doesn't make you irrational, you were irrational to begin with. I like to quote Hermann Hesse here. "The concept of god is an insanity". So to embrace an insanity takes a Nobel Prize in Irrationality.
@snytiger6 how so? By your logic, Buddhists are less rational, even though Buddhists are atheistic.
@Healthydoc70 not necessarily. Francis Collins, a scientist working on the human genome project, is a person of faith and so were people like Kirkegaard and Isaac Newton
Well I mean sure...prayers got them this far...and I am sure they see themselves as being encircled by this new case surge due to the Delta variant...and then there is the new (Lambda??) variant they found in Peru...yup...pray muthafuckers...you are about to meet your destiny. Smfh ...
Because that has worked so well in the past. Just imaging the disaster we would have had if instead of prayer we listened to medical health experts. Oh! The horror!
What a load of religious bollox!
The answer to everything that solves nothing!
Dear god, please give the stupid quick deaths. Hah.
I think the odds are a lot lower than 50/50, but yeah almost nay action that involves magical thinking is not going to work or change the odds of the desired results.
