You can argue against anything I say because anything I experience can be put down to ‘controlled hallucination’. --Simon
I probably wouldn't say that, because I can't evaluate your experience remotely. What I can do is learn about all the similar situations that people have reported throughout history and all the evaluations of them that have ever been done. There is not one case that can show some kind of causal link between the prayer and the answer. What you did was take one of those things that popped in to your head, Cor 3:8, looked it up, and it related to your question. I would bet that other things popped in to your head. If Cor 3:8 wasn't the answer you hoped for, you would have moved on, maybe forgotten about it, then found a different one that did, and you'd be reporting that one to us.
But, I’m not in your head, so I don’t know. That’s the problem with God stuff, it’s personal. You can’t transfer that experience to me or anyone else. Anything that can be used, like singing together, chanting, or some ritual, those are universal to all religions and don’t depend on the name of the god, or if the god is alive now or dead for 2,000 years. They even work without gods, like at a music concert. So, I “put down to” science, the science of religion.
