Short prayer for a sick friend
If someone is sick and youre an atheist, do you still tell them prayers to get better?As an atheist, I donu2019t believe in gods, so thereu2019s nobody to pray to.
Iu2019m also a rationalist, which means that I think that there are no supernatural effects.
In short: prayers donu2019t work.
,So, being the friendly neighbourhood atheist that I am, I do things that are helpful in real life instead.
I take on their duties at the office.
I get groceries for them.
I get medication.
I help them to the ER and at the ER.
I water their plants, feed their cat, bring the mail in.
,And I hold their hand.
,Those are things I know work.
