What are we praying for? For him to finally get a woman? For him to just relax and chill out? For God to have mercy on him? I'm not religious, but if I'm going to pray for a guy I kinda wanna know what to ask for.

"Dear God, in your infinite wisdom you have seen fit to make our brother, u/211, a total lost cause. Please, oh Lord, help him get his dick wet just once so he can calm the fuck down... If not for him, for the rest of us who have to listen to him ask when we are going to join his incel rebellion once a week. Amen."

I think he's in pain from taking erectile dysfunction drugs, and having one of those 12 hour boners, that won't go away. Or that could just be something I've made up in my head, as I've never once read a single thing he has ever posted, and don't care to figure out what any of this is about. Oh poor boner boy. Hope you get well!

Ahhh, let me modify my prayer then.

"Oh Lord our God, thou knowest the turgid ache that maligns the trousers of your childe, u/311. By the passage of the sun, it has been greater than 4 hours, and yet the rigidity of his member remaineth. Lord, in your mercy, strike down his one eyed devil that it may rest comfortably in his pantaloons once more, forever more, and never again sully his thoughts with it's swollen wickedness. Amen."

devil

You missed your chance to call it the "serpent"

[–]NastyWetSmear 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Damnit. You're right. I'm sorry. :(

[–]Titanic[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

That could work. This guy is off his rocker and some day I think he's going to hurt someone

[–]NastyWetSmear 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Oh c'mon, he's harmless. And I don't just mean he's unable to harm people, I mean he's just trolling. The dude has, like, 30 post asking what you'd do if various height men looked at your wife. Nobody can ask that seriously... The answer is: "Threesome". Duh!

[–]Titanic[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

He's harmless

You don't know that. He's got to have autism or something. But not the Thomas Jefferson kind of autism, the Dylan roof kind.

[–]NastyWetSmear 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Sure, almost certainly, but it's a funny kind!

[–]211 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (11 children)

Thank you for your prayers but sadly as an atheist I must say that they don't work. If you really care about me please send me some bitcoin so I can buy Andrew Tate's course on getting girls.

[–]Titanic[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (5 children)

I don't know how to use bitcoin.

That said, ever consider getting a foreign girl? You don't like white ones anyway. I heard the ones in Africa will submit and obey.

[–]211 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

I'm too lazy to go abroad and thanks to whitey they're all feminist whores. Even in India they're doing the whole white woman thing. Maybe when the west collapses I'll get a submissive asian or something but until then I'm fucked.

[–]Titanic[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

"I'm too lazy."

Well then fix that first. If you pray the rosary it might make you less lazy because God may give you divine grace which could re-orient your brain cells and cancel out the lazy neural connections.

Pray your rosary, and then go abroad and get fucking

[–]211 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

I'm not going half way around the world for a gf bro. Why can't I just buy a girl from the store like my ancestors could? Fuck feminism.

[–]Titanic[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

How tall are you? And would you mind a girl that wasn't super hot?

If you're not hot you can get a ratty woman.

It also depends on just how ugly you are. Are you sure working out won't help?

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Would you mind an non-attractive bitch to stick your pecker into?

[–]iDontShift 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

work on liking yourself

woman like confidence, want to be with someone already enjoying life

read the Power of Now

or Abraham-Hicks material

the 'God' you rail against is most likely the parental authoritarian god archetype ..

God is everything.. God is you .. you are God .. all is part of the same show

silence the mind the truth becomes apparent

the mind will never shut the fuck up because it is scared it will die

i only found out after i saw life was shit, the satanic assholes rule the world, and i figured death was better

my mind got silent

peace, love, joy anchor a happy life

love those you can, make peace with those you can't, and be joyful that all is well

Pantheism. A total heresy.

How to Get Girl ingredients list:

  • Rag

  • Chloroform

  • Duct tape

  • Van without windows

Use a pickup line like: "hey baby, does this rag smell like chloroform to you?"

I just saved you all sorts of hassle with buying a course.

Also he will get a lifetime of sex from big bubba!

[–]SneakyBishop 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It's like a win-win.

Intercessory prayer has no discernible effect.

Are there demonstrable effects of distant intercessory prayer? A meta-analytic review

Prayer and Health: Review, Meta-Analysis, and Research Agenda

If you want to help, you need to find some more tangible way.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (24 children)

What religion were the people praying, and were they in the state of grace?

[–]ActuallyNot 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (23 children)

What religion were the people praying,

Various. Biased towards Christian.

and were they in the state of grace?

I don't see that that was controlled for. So there would have been both amongst the people praying.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (22 children)

Well there's your problem.

[–]ActuallyNot 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (21 children)

You think they shouldn't have been Christian?

Or you think people praying not in a state of grace will cancel out the prayers of people in a state of grace?

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (20 children)

Not in a state of grace might not work as well as state of grace.

So if 99 of 100 were not, you'd get 99 weaker prayers and 1 strong one.

[–]ActuallyNot 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (19 children)

So if 99 of 100 were not, you'd get 99 weaker prayers and 1 strong one.

Neither the strong ones nor the weak ones made a difference that was measurable.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (18 children)

We don't know how many were strong and how many were weak

[–]ActuallyNot 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (17 children)

That's right. We only know that none of them worked better than not praying.

If you want to help people, you really need to find some tangible way to do it.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (16 children)

Well if you repeat the study and ask people if they are obeying church teaching and doctrine and believe themselves to be in the state of grace and then try it again, then I'd be very curious to see.

It could be that the prayers were just too weak for God to change the course of history over.

Or maybe the prayers weren't genuine and they just did what they were told.

On the other hand, and this is unfalsifiable so take it with a grain of salt, maybe doing the test pissed God off because he says right in the bible that he hates being put to the test, and so he deliberately ignored it.

[–]fschmidt 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (15 children)

No. He doesn't respond to comments. He deserves nothing.

[–]Titanic[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (14 children)

That's the point. Christians must pray for those who DON'T deserve it, too.

Also, if we get God to change his heart, maybe he'll stop spamming and we won't have to humiliate him into doing it

[–]fschmidt 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (13 children)

Thank God I am not Christian.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (12 children)

Are you a deist?

[–]fschmidt 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (11 children)

Hell no. I follow the Old Testament.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (10 children)

So you're a JEW!

(Don't worry I won't tell oyveygoyim...)

[–]fschmidt 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Judaism follows the Talmud. I don't.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

There are jews that don't, which means you are a jew.

Can I tell oyveygoyim just to see his reaction or should I keep my mouth shut?

[–]fschmidt 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Just the Karaites don't, but they have other issues.

You can tell whatever you want to whoever you want, I don't care.

[–]Musky 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

He's one of the good ones.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (5 children)

Most Jews I've met have been nothing but nice to me, I've never met the kind so many people are afraid of.

[–]Musky 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

Behind a lot of evil in this world you will find Jews if you look. The stereotypes weren't pulled out of someone's ass. Greedy, bloody thirsty, dishonest, subversive, etc.

It doesn't mean the individuals are all bad but they suffer a racial/cultural handicap.

[–]Titanic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

I've never seen any dishonest or greedy ones. I've only seen nice ones. What is a list of this greedy or evil kind?
