The reason that so many people still believe praying makes a difference is that when they were young they were taught, or indoctrinated, that ‘praying’ is a way to get a god to change the world to their preferences.
In reality there is no god, there are just people, like priests, who claim to speak on behalf of a god.
The reason that so many people believe that voting makes a difference is because when they were young they were taught, or indoctrinated, into believing that ‘voting’ is a way to get a government to change the world to your preferences.
In reality, there is no government. There are just people, politicians, who claim to speak on behalf of a government.
The reality is that there is no god and there is no government. There are just people and their silly ideas.
