A friend just told me that all prayers are answered, we just may not know how. Another comment is "all prayers are answered, and the answer is "yes", "no" or "maybe later". How do I point out to a friend his lack of logic. My belief is nobody is listening or nobody cares to answer (I'm agnostic).
God works in mysterious ways, if you take the possiblilty of God route. Everything happens for a reason, if you take the Spiritual Atheist route. And prayers are completely uselss, if you take the militant atheist route. Deity Bless!
