Every fucking year it's the same thing.

The confederate states just can't seem to get a break. You would think their "faith" in their imaginary friend would spare them these natural disasters.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Ricky Gervais gave some excellent advice via Twitter last year at this time - loosely; Instead of praying for the victims of the tornadoes, donate online to the Red Cross so they can actually get some help.

Since then, I've donated ten bucks every time they set up a special disaster relief fund - not much but, it's better than ten million prayers at least.

In this case, the only reasonable explanation is that if you de facto elect a god by worshipping him, you get the whole package.

If you don't elect a god, He takes no interest in you and you have to struggle through life without magic miracles. This means that if you lose your car keys, it's down to you to find them; if you are a pro-footballer, when you score, you have no choice but to accept it was your own skill. Basically, you're screwed.
Nobody says “There are many things that we thought were natural processes, but now know that a god did them.”

The cosmos is also within us. We are made of star stuff.

The only thing bigger than the universe is humanity's collective sense of self-importance.
