This represents current thinking on religion and God. I have tried to say that worship is a matter of faith. Faith? So let me start with with myself; I have had to pray for help, and help has come, and not only material help, but courage.. Yet I am not Christian, and I am not agnostic.When I look back at my education, most of my intelligence have come from teachers, and many of them were Jesuits, and men of God. When I look at my country of birth almost the entire population, prays for mercy and help.Then to whom are we praying? One cannot pray without sacrifice, even I know that! How many of you know this? Very few I bet! When I look back in time almost all the great thinkers in history, including scientists, were God fearing persons. So where is the data that supports your conclusion? Billions of people have prayed; I do not know who or what they prayed to or prayed for, and I would not be privileged to know. Many persons hold in their minds and heart their relations with Divine Providence. They pray to God, and this prayer serves them with courage and inspiration. I understand an Irish Scientist has predicted that by 2041 God will not exist. What nonsense! He must be God to know the future, by 30 years..
