Your prayers, thoughts and actions have powerful effects on a quantum level and reverberate throughout the universe. If you are going to pray, wouldn't you rather do it in a way that has been proven to work?
Do our bodily functions "reverberate throughout the universe" too? I suppose that would explain the "Ghost fart" phenomenon.

Then why is yours right? Why is their only your heaven? ... Oh and by the way Im catholic
Then you should understand basic Christian doctrine/pre-Vatican II Catholic belief.
Sounds like separation to me
What you've brought up has nothing to do with people of different religions separating themselves here on Earth.
Well that clears a few things up for me anyway.
Its none of my business what you are. As long as its working for you, that's great.

No one will deny or dispute the power of the Almighty to make such a communication if he pleases. But admitting, for the sake of a case, that something has been revealed to a certain person, and not revealed to any other person, it is revelation to that person only. When he tells it to a second person, a second to a third, a third to a fourth, and so on, it ceases to be a revelation to all those persons. It is revelation to the first person only, and hearsay to every other, and, consequently, they are not obliged to believe it. It is a contradiction in terms and ideas to call anything a revelation that comes to us at second hand, either verbally or in writing. Revelation is necessarily limited to the first communication. After this, it is only an account of something which that person says was a revelation made to him; and though he may find himself obliged to believe it, it cannot be incumbent on me to believe it in the same manner, for it was not a revelation made to me, and I have only his word for it that it was made to him.
That which is now called natural philosophy, embracing the whole circle of science, of which astronomy occupies the chief place, is the study of the works of God, and of the power and wisdom of God in his works, and is the true theology. As to the theology that is now studied in its place, it is the study of human opinions and of human fancies concerning God.1 It is not the study of God himself in the works that he has made, but in the works or writings that man has made; and it is not among the least of the mischiefs that the Christian system has done to the world, that it has abandoned the original and beautiful system of theology,2 like a beautiful innocent, to distress and reproach, to make room for the hag of superstition.

Another case of religious fanatic coming on ATS to preach. I dont know what it has to do wth religious conspiracies either.
Frankly I dont give a crap what your opinion is, and you shouldnt come here pushing it onto people. I dont understand why you even care what other people believe in

Zarp, when I read your thread title I got the whole body shivers and goose bumps.
That tells me you are correct.
