Holy Experiment Day

While you math and science people were busy with π-Day and Talk Like a Physicist Day festivities on 3/14, you may have missed out on Holy Experiment Day a couple weeks ago (3/4)!

What does one to do celebrate?

Holy Experiment Day is a day to try something religious. It is a chance to try something, or ask for something, and to measure the results.

There are a lot of things that can be viewed as religious or holy experiments. Some examples could be:

  • Pray for someone to get better
  • Pray for snow
  • Pray for your team to win the superbowl
  • Pray someone will ask you on a date
  • Try saying grace at dinner and see if others join you
  • Try to get a person to attend religious services
  • Plan to convert someone to your religion

In our examples above, God may grant all, some, or none of the desired results. He may be too busy with the problems of the world to make it snow. He definitely doesn’t have a favorite sports team. The Lord truely works in mysterious ways. Sometimes, he has his own plans for an outcome that we may not understand.

In other words… pray for something. If it works, it proves God exists. If it doesn’t work, it just means God works in mysterious ways.

More like hole-y experiment day…

(Yes, I know, I’m *hilarious*.)

    This sounds to me like satire.

    Whether it “works” or not doesn’t prove anything one way or another. God is not a vending machine and prayer is not a magic trick.
