I am not opposed to your disbelief, but your
lack of rigor on this.
Prayer may have more than one definition.
You may pose a kind of prayer which you wish
to refute, but have not refuted all kinds of prayer. Nor have you accounted for the fact that
CHOICES of how to use one's mind have consequences ... and therefore prayer does create effects, which you have not shown you have measured or studied.

Al said all processes in nature are simply mathematical consequences of initial conditions

1) "belief" is itself a phenomenon in nature, whether the belief is scientific or not.
Beavers go in search of trees to chew, believing
they will be there. If not, the beaver will
be disappointed, but the belief is phenomenon.
Sometimes the beaver does find the trees to chew.

2) However, human thought goes beyond that.

This has been covered in earlier posts.
