    how about close your eyes, bow your head, hit your knees, and PRAY?
    I forgot….it’s unACCEPTABLE to mention GOD…anywhere!

    Double Blind-Studies on the efficacy of Prayer show NO effect.

    Sorry, believers.

    (BTW-Why does God hate Amputees? Plenty of virtuous, deserving, God-Fearing Troops are returning minus substantial portions of their Anatomy. Why doesn’t your Loving God regenerate ANY of them?)

    And it seems unacceptable to some for those of us who don’t believe, not to mention Him.

    Never heard of “the power of prayer”? Even if God’s not behind it, hope and positive thinking has been shown to do wonders.

    AMA reports study results that prayer improves patients recovery. Their prayer, not someone else’s.

    Paul is strangely mute through all this. In my family the in-laws have the most to say. We’ve been taught not to talk. And Claire better be polite to the doctors. There was a recent Dilbert comic about the doctor leaving his Rolex in a patient’s body cavity for safekeeping while he went for a run.

    Since you don’t take anybody’s unsupported word (A VERY GOOD strategy, by the way) start at Wikipedia by searching under “Studies on intercessory prayer” from that it’s relativly easy to “backtrack” each study to it’s original publication.

    By the way, STILL no Regenerated arms or Legs. I guess God just HATES amputees, eh?
