Prayers might help.



  • Jimbo says:

    here’s hoping a good recovery is made. Prayers! There are scores of reports evidencing non intercessionary prayers yield better results. Pray to the person directly. Don’t use a middle “man”. A supernatural power.
    Religion is belief in the supernatural based on revelation maintained by dogmatic tradition.

    • Novagerio says:

      Jimbo, the meaning of prayer for some moderate un-dogmatic or even secular christians, is to pray for Nature being “nice” to the sufferer.

  • Misha the Menshevik says:

    Didn’t the President-For-Life tell us not long ago that Russia had eradicated coronavirus?
