God Not Manipulable

Last week Reuters reported on a study of 1,800 patients that showed that prayer by outsiders had no impact on patient outcomes.

Scrappleface had his own unique take on the study:

A team of scientists today ended a 10-year study on the so-called “power of prayer” by concluding that God cannot be manipulated by humans, not even by scientists with a $2.4 million research grant.

The scientists also noted that their work was “sabotaged by religious zealots” secretly praying for study subjects who were supposed to receive no prayer.

That sounds correct to me.
