IMO, not a very good argument, as there is as extensive evidence to the opposite point of view.
Those who cannot really pray (like myself) - can just think about Roger. Whatever you call it, its still a prayer...
And when comes from a non-religios (but otherwise exceptional) person as Dennis, the call for prayer appears quite appropriate and even necessary. Particularly, in regard to Roger, who is a great engineer and List contributor, and a good person.

>From what I can tell by your posts, you are an intelligent, well read man.
However, blanket statements about the benefits of religion are puzzling to me.
While my mother was the most religious person I ever met, her life was plagued
By a terrible set of personal circumstances and health problems that culminated
in a horrible, painful death.
If this is the way ?God, Allah, Buddha? or whomever rewards piety, I have to wonder.

I?m not a religious person, but I know many of you are.
It?s times like these where I feel especially thankful that I am. And I heartily suggest to those of you who aren?t, that you take an occasion like this to reexamine your assumptions quite seriously.
