I would've loved it if JAM Project sang it instead.
Surely results would also vary from banana to banana.
"Just because we cannot disprove it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist" <------------- The most common argument for this kind of thing ever.

Hey. You have Skype, AIM, MSN, anything like that? I'm actually interested in talking with you.
I hope I haven't seemed too hostile in the past.

...that must have been very very weird for the boy who survived, having been through such a horrible event but then also being used as the object of people's divine aspirations. I suppose many confuse the idea of 'miraculous' with 'unlikely', when there's little that's astonishing about probability.
When I asked those questions to religionists they said that I was 'treating god like a cosmic vending machine,'...so okay, praying for eternal eupheric rewards and pampering is acceptable but asking for a leg to be restored for a maximum of 80 years is pushing it?

Hmm, like thanking god that a relative survives an operation, rather than thanking the surgeon.
It's a bit similar to ancient egypt, if you exchange the pharoah for a pope. x3 and yes unfortunately the temptation of a reward can distract people from the means by which they achieve it, which is ironic because christianity's doctrines say that temptation is bad. I think routine is pretty crucial too, even when I stopped being religious I still prayed regularly for a few months eventhough I knew nobody was there, I suppose because I had become used to the routine.
Speaking of watch maker arguments and first causes, it's so much fun when 'chicken and egg' comes up; if somebody says 'the chicken came first because god made it', it's good sport to say 'yes I agree, but the egg came first because god hatched from an egg' ;3 it really gets some people irrate.
Do you draw?
