Prayer Experiement !! MAGIC !!!! READ THIS !!!!!!!!
    #1947668 - 09/24/03 01:33 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

haha...this might be a very fun idea and a completely
wonderful way of wasting our time :grin: and make
us bond !

we could all agree on some date of Universal Cosmic Significance
and every single person on the Shroomery could pray
(in whatever manner they prefer) for an allotted amount
of time (something reasonable maybe an hour) for something
very specific and calculable in terms of probability -
a lottery ticket !!! the ultimate barometer !
n lets see what happens :grin:
I'm serious btw, I have whey too much time on my hands
since I've gotten unemployed...
Let's put our cosmic conciousness to use and see where it
goes...there's some deeply mystical people on this board, and
some who claim/beleive in the power of prayer...so let's
see what happens...
yes I am this bored  :rolleyes:

Something like Swami's backpain would be a wiser choice.

:lol:
Swami has too much at stake here to admit that he's been
healed in the hypothetical case :tongue:
Lotto would be perfect - all proceeds go to charity, that
way there'd be no complications...or we could distribute...
something tells me that we don't really need to worry about
the result too much  :rolleyes:
I just think it would be a fun thing to try with conviction

I did no such thing. It wasn't Lucifer, either, it was my fucking son, Jesus... he gets a little rough with his toys.

And, what happened with all the goat sacrifices? Start em up again! I get fucking hungry, you know?
Peace.

Someone choose six numbers, and everyone pray really hard for those numbers, hell, even I'll pray, and I'll laugh at you for throwing away money on lottery tickets :P

I never buy lotto tickets.
I just thought it would be a fun thing to do.
We just need 1 ticket, we don't even need to choose
number a quick pick would do - since the idea is to
see if prayer works  :rolleyes:

You know, you are absoultely right...

God is too high class to be a brass buddha statue. It needs to be solid gold with a platinum beard and diamond eyes. And, instead of coins, we would need to throw dollars and credit cards.

I mean, it IS God, after all. Brass isn't something that would be suitable for him.
Peace.

He's not going to give each of us a frickin' lottery ticket, people.

However, I would very much like to see the outcome of us praying on a specific day for something specific, something necessary, and something positive - without getting into money or material possessions.



Actually, the lotto ticket was just an example (I starting to
think a bad one), I couldn't care less for money...
for all I care we could pick anything specific, but something
whose probability is easy to calculate (that's why I had
suggested the lotto).
As far as use goes, money can be useful if used charitibly.
The idea was not to throw coins at God, but to validate the
effectiveness of prayer...
to say that "well God won't answer such a prayer, cuase
he has nothing to prove" etc etc, shows that, logically,
prayer has no intrinsic value, but it's value is completely
subjective...which incidentally is fine by me...

But, come on, throwing coins at God is FUN!

If you throw watches, he does a dance! :grin:

How about pray for someone undergoing surgery, or in need of financial help, or other situation. It is better to pray for others before you pray for yourself.
