Pay for Pray - please, I pray, let this be a hoax. Information Age Prayer is a subscription service utilizing a computer with text-to-speech capability to incant your prayers each day. It gives you the satisfaction of knowing that your prayers will always be said even if you wake up late, or forget.
  • So, if you're not actually saying it yourself it still counts? how cool! On the other hand, there are some prayers I wouldn't want to keep repeating.
  • So soon the Electric Monk will also be a reality, right?
  • I was thinking more of Buddhist prayer wheels.
  • Get in on the fast start. Should you really pay for prayers?
  • The eLifeProjects scam is brilliant. - They don't have to do anything because "metaphysical" actions cannot be measured, even in a court of law. - If your request is not solved then have promised nothing and they owe you nothing. - But half of human problems have a way of solving themselves (health, romance, emotional distress etc.) - And half of the people promising money are gullible enough to pay. (With no refunds!) - So they rake in (say) a quarter of all the money promised. It is mechanized religion, without the effort of preaching, and it looks like it will be a money printing machine.
  • This came to my twisted mind. "overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out."
  • I went to the site. I paid to have it say this prayer: "Please have disappear from the internets"
  • Phil Dick predicted this.
  • The answer is *42*
  • I don't see a problem with this. I'm going to pray for a free account.
  • Ah, it's like the Reformation never happened - let's open up the chantries and get some serious industrial praying going! Also, I want my dog-saint back.
  • Flurker, when you open up an account, you get a free set of prayer beads or a toaster! Here he is, jb!
