The Power of Prayer Not to Heal but to Kill

"In the Middle Ages, when there was an epidemic, people crowded into churches to pray, thinking that their piety would move God to take pity on them; in fact the crowd in ill-ventilated building provided ideal conditions for the spread of the infection... Bertrand Russell... In the Philippines, the most destructive typhoon Yolanda in the Eastern Visayas destroyed billions of pesos worth in farm land, properties, and assets such as homes, hotels, schools, commercial and residential buildings, hospitals, roads and bridges, and also the death of thousands of innocent Filipinos. Quite a lot of them, as inspired by the power of prayer, went inside damaged or ruined churches to pray for deliverance. Instead, they experienced the activated horrors of nature in their respective provinces as willed by God's divine plan. . . - Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#
