If my questions are all "incorrect", please tell me how, and what are the "correct" conclusions we can reach when you pray for me, yet I still am unmoved to believe in your god?
I have a lot of people praying for me to see the "truth" - many Christians, and some Muslims. Maybe their prayers are working - because as I see it, the truth is that your god, and theirs, does not exist, but if it did, it is not powerful, is not merciful, and knows very little - probably no more than the men in the Bronze Age who wrote the stories down in the first place.
