Im the OP and here were the results with my sister. She came up with data that said the divorce rate for real Christians was 42%........so "prayer works 58% of the time" was her answer.  I excused myself from the conversation at that point.

Well the death rate for Christians is 100%, exactly the same as the death rate for atheists, Muslims, Hindus and Santeros. Prayer fails 100% of the time. So there.  &)
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

"Real Christians"? What's a fake Christian?

A god is like a rock: it does absolutely nothing until someone or something forces it to do something. The only capability the rock has is doing nothing until another force compels it physically to move.

The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously.
