    Sounds like a placebo effect. Which doesn't mean anything is wrong with doing it, if it works.

    Yes, but even that's biased. :/ It's depressing.

    If I were to mix the whole emerging sciences with religion thing, I'd go for the angle that we simply don't know what the universe operates under. Supposedly the matter within the universe is 95%+ dark energy, quantum mechanics experiments enables the conscious mind to make changes in its results, and we could soon be measuring extra universes in the near future. In other words, god is in the details of the universe that we have yet to examine..

    Yeah, but I have trouble imagining that it makes the food healthier. Unless I'm missing something here.

    The difference is that science is backed up by evidence, and will change when the evidence say it needs to. Religion isn't willing to change, even when evidence disproving a belief exists.

    And technically a scientific "fact", or law, is something that has never failed to be correct on an experimental test. If, for some reason, a guy jumped off a building and started flying upwards without any observable cause, we'd begin reevaluating gravity. Just because something's been declared factual doesn't mean it can't still be disproven.

    Also, keep in mind that evolution doesn't disprove creationism. There are plenty of religious scientists who believe in both.

    I think it depends on if you think the prayer is supposed to change the food or the person praying. If it is supposed to change the person then the prayer is working as intended.

    Stages of Spiritual Growth - M. Scott Peck, M.D.

    Most of you are stuck in stage 3, you can't see past logic, it takes a real life changing event, or some divine experience to surpass logic. Remember that no personality is better than the other and all functions are necessary for society to function, logic is not superior, it's merely 1 of the 7 or 8 intelligences that humans are capable of possessing.
