I'm guessing that prayer is going to be somewhat less effective than steering currents.

... whyyyyy?

To show god's power over natural events. 

Thing is, a cloud blew over just before totality, and that was good enough to claim success.

The adults can go ahead and do that silly nonsense, but why drag those kids into it?

Why humanity, why?

I hate the idea that Irma's going to come in and destroy so much shit, but it would be a real pisser from this end if it didn't.
It's a no win situation.

Um.. do they think that  not a single Texan got the bright idea to pray the storm away??? 

It's like watching Natives pray to an active volcano to get it to stop being angry. Same diff. Primitive and somewhat chilling. Mostly just sad though. They probably can't get out of town. I do hope they left and took actual precautions in saving they and their children's lives..

I pity people who do this and really think their "praying" will actually work. 

How awesome would it be if they all suddenly became atheists because the reality of life smacked them around hard enough to wake their silly asses up to the fact that their precious "god" doesn't give a shit about them.

Did they not sacrifice a virgin? Always works, though these days it's hard enough to find a virgin.
As a species, we are fucked. To the next generation, I offer my inadequate apologies.

All the pretty ones were taken. Don't want to sacrifice second choice meat to god, might piss him off! 

Ok that was bad. But seriously I didn't know a single pretry church girl virgin growing up and I lived in church town Kansas USA. Our middleschool had a "breakout" of 6th grader pregnancies my senior year, at least 20 of them.
If I were to create self aware beings knowing fully what they would do in their lifetimes, I sure wouldn't create a HELL for the majority of them to live in infinitely! That's not Love, that's sadistic. Therefore a truly loving god does not exist!

Quote:The sin is against an infinite being (God) unforgiven infinitely, therefore the punishment is infinite.

Dead wrong.  The actions of a finite being measured against an infinite one are infinitesimal and therefore merit infinitesimal punishment.

Quote:Some people deserve hell.

I say again:  No exceptions.  Punishment should be equal to the crime, not in excess of it.  As soon as the punishment is greater than the crime, the punisher is in the wrong.

I think that a lot of these people are just looking to meet so that they can have sex later on; prayer is an aphrodisiac for them.  Don't you listen to Delilah?
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)
