God and Prayer - First draft posted on Facebook on October 9, 2017

There is no evidence for god; none of the known physical laws are inexact enough to support effects of "divine influence"; the universe is so enormously large and complicated that it is absurd to think that a supreme being organized it all for the benefit of a primate species that has only existed for a tiny fraction of the age of the universe.

So, prayers are really only hopes. Think about that. When something bad happens, politicians basically say, we hope it won't happen again. That is absurd. We need to do more than just hope. We need to take action.

On the Covid-19 pandemic
On climate change.
On gun control.
On inequality.
On relief for Puerto Rico.
On fixing the redistricting process.
