    It all depends on the intensity of the prayer vs the intensity of the destined event. Do you feel like the hole in your roof was destiny?

    LOL! Might be better off praying for some cash for something worthy then spending it on the roof. Then, repent. Sorted.

    No. You're all wrong. The way to get the hole in the roof fixed is to steal some cash, or slates, then pray for forgiveness.

    That's not magical enough for me...

    Don't you want to see if this stuff works? They've got diagrams so it's probably all true!

    I love that they've put percentages to all this as though it's some actual measurable force they've conducted tests on. If you choose to have faith in a higher being, that's up to you, but don't dare try to tell me it's science.

    Certainly not me! A religion based on the writings of a Sci-Fi author who was alive in living memory and is on record as having said that the best way to make money in this world is to invent a religion; how on Earth can anybody possibly buy in to that carp?!
