Prayer Efficacy Studies: Let's talk about them.

Heard different studies cited by folks like Francis Collins and Rupert Sheldrake that assert Prayer shows marked correlation to improved patient health

I've also heard people like @mike and Richard Dawkins cite studies that actually show an inverse relationship between prayer and patient health

I just wanted to get a discussion going on what these studies actually are, their methodology, what might be driving different results, etc

Currently I am at the Methodist Theological School in Ohio studying Ecology and Justice

Just read these at my course at my seminary the "Methodist Theological School in Ohio." Check them out if you are curious about a history of the movement and how faith/religion might be a part of it.

is seeming pretty white.

Also, seems like a potentially privileged task.

How do you feel about this? Do you think this is the case?

Also - I am happy to be here. Thanks @mike

Hey all I am curious what all books y'all are reading.

Also, not so sure about this whole toot! thing...
