earth goes boomCan you imagine if prayer really worked? Can you possibly conceive of how totally screwed-over this world would be if whatever you asked of God actually happened?

I'm not talking about Butterfly Effects from finding a miraculous extra ten quid in the sock drawer at the end of the month, I'm referring to the mass slaughter of millions, possibly billions of people by those who would instantly use the power of God to amass fortunes and effect devastating wars for personal vain-glory.

Yes, I realize there'd be a sizeable proportion of do-gooders praying for world peace, but their matter of good intentions would be a drop in the bucket against the anti-matter of greed and hate.

Personally, I'd be in a spaceship made entirely of tits flying in excess of light-speed towards distant planetary systems looking for a muffler that doesn't cost too much. It's my dream, okay?

So let's all be thankful that religion is just the mental defect that it is and thank our lucky stars there exists among us a large contingent of altrustic intelligentsia working hard to make the world a better place. You know... engineers, doctors, physicists, Bill Hicks. If you have to pray for anything, pray for them. It won't help, but at least you made the effort, Sparky.

Doc: "Science can be such a slut."
