Prayer Study Tomfoolery
According to this article at the Washington Post, there are studies still being done on intercessary prayer. Jebus! I thought that whole load of crap had gone away already.
Here. I'll save millions in research money: IT DOESN'T WORK! Come on, people.
The "healers" of all stripes, along with their supporters, are doing the typical wiggle-jiggle whenever science puts the kibosh on one of their pet beliefs. What really pisses me off, although it doesn't really surprise me, is that the WP is giving this story the Fox "fair and balanced" treatment, giving at least temporary legitimacy to the woo-woo crowd.
This is a waste of time and money. But confirmation bias and anecdotal evidence apparently trump reality once again.
