Prayer Doesn't Aid Recovery, Study Finds
Praying for other people to recover from an illness is ineffective, according to the largest, best-designed study to examine the power of prayer to heal strangers at a distance.
The study of more than 1,800 heart-bypass patients found that those who had people praying for them had as many complications as those who did not. In fact, one group of patients who knew they were the subject of prayers fared worse.
Surprisingly, 59 percent of the patients who knew they were being prayed for experienced complications.
No shit... that's because there is no God, you freaks.
