Where agnostics and atheists can freely discuss
You raise a very valid point. Dad does consider things and I should give him credit for not desperately pulling out some ridiculous apologetic argument that isn't even related.
Society and its morals evolve and will continue to evolve. The bible however remains the same and just requires more and more apologetics and claims of "metaphors" and "symbolism" to justify it.
Prayer is like rubbing an old bottle and hoping that a genie will pop out and grant you three wishes.
There is much about this world that is mind boggling and impressive, but I see no need whatsoever to put it down to magical super powered beings.
