While everything is taken place in the world right now, how many of you have starting talking to God, and Pray that you stay alive, and well?
Anyway, to your point, I personally don’t pray like that, but sayings like “there are no atheists in fox holes” Do not generate for no reason, imo
As has already been mentioned somewhere on this site, Yah Is the one who made the pandemic, and after all 80% of us are not even going to notice it when they get “infected”
Let me see...ZERO!
I felt no need to talk to a god when my daughter lost a pregnancy at 17 weeks. I felt no need to talk to a god when my brother got killed at work at the age of 43 (he would have turned 60 two days ago). I never felt the need to talk to a god when I found out my husband had been cheating on me for five years (and fathered a kid--or maybe two-- during that time). And, I feel no need to turn to a god during this. I will look toward reason, common sense and science.
The concept of praying to and asking for help from something that supposedly created you makes absolutely no sense. Why would a so called god put his own creation in peril in the first place or not Alleviate it’s suffering .These are the traits of a sadist and a psychopath. But this is the god invented by man as depicted in the Epicurean paradox which assumes human and divine definitions of evil are the same .
I started talking to my TV. Wait, are you saying my TV is a god? Makes sense. Knows everything, always watching me. If one dies, it comes back, though sometimes in a different form. It works in mysterious ways (the remote doesn't always work, and it can change its own channels). Sometimes, I yell (a prayer) to the TV to let things go my way for my sports teams and it makes it happen. Sometimes, I yell (a prayer) to the TV to let things go my way for my sports teams and it makes it happen. Hell, even kids know this inherently. Leave a child in front of a TV, they will get on the ground and just listen to its words as long as you let them. I suppose that is a form of worship.
Dude, we gotta get the good word out, TVs are gods! Praise be unto the TV gods.
No gods yet BUT I have started talking to my lamp. I was getting a tad lonely there for a while in my self-imposed isolation but then I noticed how attractive and steadfast Lamp was. He's tall and slim, doesn't prattle on and is always there for me. I turn him on every night. Ahhh; he just lights up my day.
