Does anyone else find it interesting that the study costs $666K?
Religion needs to be kept out?
What about the scientists? They're the douchebags that spent the money!
What makes you think that scientists [which generally hold a bias against religion anyway] could possibly be fair in the study anyway?
Maybe government should find better ways to spend out money than trying to disprove something that it's already made a law to keep separate from.
You are so funny!
I knew you were dumb, but not THAT dumb.
This is how a study works; you form a hypothesis. You perform the experiment, and see if there is a statistical correlation.
In straightforward studies like thes, it's very easy to prove if there is a correlation
In this case, praying was not found to heal AIDS. there was no link found between praying and healing of symptoms.
Thank you for agreeing with me that religious nonsense should be kept out of taxpayer's money. They should be investigating useful things, not things that can't be proven!
Try again next time! :D
It's hard to reply politely to such a post. You do not refute an argument by insulting the person who presents it, expressing pity, calling them funny or stupid, or whatever. Science and spirit have no commonality BY DEFINITION. Science is everything that can be measured, spirit is everything that can not be measured.
Stupid government, whoever let that happen needs to go down and fast..Jeesh religion causes more death than healing.
McFly you know I'm far from being the religious type. That being said due to the concepts of quantum mechanics, I do support research into "group thought". I believe the human mind is quite capable of amazing things. It doesn't need to be about religion. Let's say it was set up where all 8 billion citizens of this world truly hoped for one single person to be healed. I'd love to see the results.
pretty sure that !00% a case of scientist showing how they 'rock and roll' like for the past 80 yers. invent something, spaceboys
What if it worked????
