Polls indicate how people think, not how true the thoughts are

I found an article via CBN about a poll conducted to see how many people believed prayer made the difference in saving Rep Gabrielle Giffords’ life.

Most voters credit prayer with Giffords’ miraculous recovery from the Jan. 8 shooting in Tucson, according to a new Fox News poll.

The poll revealed that 77 percent of voters believe prayer helped save Giffords life while 17 percent disagree with that notion. Eighty-four percent of Republicans agreed that prayer saved her life compared with 74 percent of Democrats.

I think fast acting by everyone around her and great medical support is what saved her life, not mumbled words to a sky fairy. I’d rather give the credit to the doctors for knowing what to do with their training, myself. Three cheers for qualified doctors!

  1. Now now! Now, how do you know that person’s really a fairy, huh? 😀

    I don’t even know who first coined the term “sky fairy” to refer to a god. It is kind of a goofy phrase…
