55. I like the way you think
I agree with what you said. I also think that prayer is self-aggrandizing. Even though I am not a believer in organized religion, I once used to pray to god on health issues until I realized one day how pretty damn important I felt myself to be. Why? Because I knew damn well that as I was praying for whatever, others were starving by the hundreds of thousands, others were being unspeakably tortured; and still others were in other types of horrendous pain--and all praying to their god for relief. Could I believe even for a split second that I would be the one whose prayer would be honoured by god? For what possible reason? The answer was patently clear, for no good reason. So now, I just takes my chances and hopes for the best.
