How many of you ever feel this way?
I understand the desire for comfort. But when you know there’s no God listening to your prayers, it seems downright silly to resort to praying… unless, I guess, it’s the only way you know how to deal with difficult situations. Some atheists prefer a kind of secular meditation instead, which at least makes more sense to me.
Whoever wrote this postcard isn’t alone, though. Polls show there are a handful of atheists who pray. If only they were asked the natural follow-up question.
