why faith fails
This video is spawn from the subject matter discussed in the last. It has to do with why faith fails/why God does not answer prayer.

RE: why faith fails
Why doesn't God answer prayers?


For the same reason that leprechauns don't hand out gold at the end of a rainbow...

Because it's fantasy. The expectation of an answer is delusional.

Faith fails because, after the big bang, there weren't enough atoms left over to form magical nonsense.

ironically you are right here.

In that like the idea leprechauns hand out gold at the end of the rainbow, people create their own lore based on tradition, and the canonical view gets lost. If you are trading good deeds for answered prayers, then why would the God of the bible who said he does not do this honor your own construct?

like wise if there were  leprechauns they would not be handing out gold at the end of rainbows. Why? because according to canonical lore they hid their gold at the end of rainbows not hand gold out. They mended shoes and granted 3 wishes if you caught one. that's it.

So yes again thanks for giving a personal example of how unmet expectations often have to do with your perception on how things work verse how things work.

Maybe you are the one doing something wrong

close after the big bang and the whole of evolution/dragons running the planet, monkeys morphing into men, magical global heating and cooling that can only be fixed by a tax on all energy usage, I would say most of you do not even have the faith of a mustard seed left in you given the expenditure of faith you have already demonstrated trying to hide from God.

God does not answer prayers because fictional beings do not exist. Prayer is merely someone talking to themselves hoping a super hero exists.

Says the guy who has been guilty of every fallacy there is (this is an obvious ad populum), and actually believes he's the rational one.

At one time, the vast majority of humanity believed the earth was flat, the sun orbited the earth, disease was caused by demons, etc, etc. How did all that work out for the 'majority'?

I actually thought you were smart enough to accept the observable fact of evolution and climate change. I must have been mistaking you for an intelligent theist.

You'd believe if you just opened your heart" is a terrible argument for religion. It's basically saying, "If you bias yourself enough, you can convince yourself that this is true." If religion were true, people wouldn't need faith to believe it -- it would be supported by good evidence.

RE: why faith fails
If by 2.4% of the world Drich means percentage of the world's population that is atheist; he seems to be making a point that being a minority somehow makes us wrong. That isn't true, which is good for him, because the percentage of the world's population that is Christian is 29.81%; also a minority. But it's argument ad populum anyway, which means it really doesn't have anything to do with whether we're right or not.
I'm not anti-Christian. I'm anti-stupid.
