Thought for the day - Atheist prayers

An inability to pray, or a visceral aversion to praying, is a sign of mental damage. Mere lack of God belief isn't sufficient to explain this - there's either a belief at work, or something which requires some psychological spelunking to eke out.

to whom, exactly, would an atheist pray to?
Zeus? cthulthu? my neighbor's dog? Bob the universe farting unicorn?

or would "talking to oneself" qualify as prayer to you? in which case i think everyone mumbles quietly to themselves from time to time. i do it at the grocery store a lot, "hmm... eggs, pepperoni, umm... what am i missing..."

Hey, thanks for showing up to prove my point. The mere suggestion that the inability to pray highlights a faculty failure draws you out, because it stirs something in you - and you have to act out.

You know why that is? It's because I'm touching a nerve in you - a faulty wire, that you really should look into fixing.
