As I was reading Benjamin Radford's article "The Power of Prayer", it reminded me of a story I had read a few weeks earlier in which a couple in Wisconsin had recently been found guilty of reckless homicide when their 11 year old daughter died from complications due to diabetes. The young girl was lying on the floor unable to walk, talk, eat or drink and yet neither her parents nor any of their friends called for help or took her to the hospital, instead relying on prayer to heal her. I felt very sorry for the young girl, as I do for the newborn from Radfords story, but I was also happy with the precedent that this court case was setting. How any person could just sit there while their child was dying and be convinced that "God" was going to save them if they just prayed hard enough is beyond me. It seems to me that more and more people are willing to throw out the laws that we as a cohesive society have deemed necessary in favor of "Gods Law". It is time for people to stop putting their faith into something unknown and sometimes unbelievable and instead turn to the more concrete things like medicine and science.
