I wonder if anyone at the church had a heart attack they would want CPR or just someone to pray for them?

There are many times when CPR is performed, and they die anyway.

The feelings of the crowd were communicated to him, that he was still wanted here.

You are only looking at the surface of events.

Prayer can make a difference. ;)


Confirmation bias: events where things go fine are presented as proof of prayer working while every other event where things go wrong is ignored.

If God is bigger than science why do the CPR at all?


Because god needs a vessel of course.

The alleged creator of the universe, the flood and the plagues needs vessels now? He must be running out of mana.

He should grind some levels and spend some points on INT.

I don't believe for a second you actually believe in any of the stuff you post. You're just a contrarian. You ignore scientific evidence and common sense in favour of ghosts, UFOs, bigfoot, religion, conspiracy theories and right-wing propaganda.

Don't be so certain. I know people who seem to believe in almost every type of pseudo-science, miracle cures, voodoos, and hocus pocus.

 

 

Confirmation bias: events where things go fine are presented as proof of prayer working while every other event where things go wrong is ignored.

 

I think that's called selection bias. You remember the hits and forget the misses. They talk about the time one guy was saved, but ignore the thousands of pious people praying in hospital beds across the country who die anyway.

 

I think confirmation bias is when you set up an experiment to find evidence confirming your belief instead of trying to disprove your hypothesis.

It's also an interpretation of events to confirm a belief:
-If events go the way they were prayed for then prayer works.
-If they don't then god has another plan.

In any case, spurious relationships out of cognitive bias.
