Prayer and science?

An excellent New York Times column points out that “responsible religious leaders will breathe a sigh of relief at the news that so-called intercessory prayer is medically ineffective.”

I for one breathed a very deep sigh of relief. The column concludes by observing that “scientists who undertake the work of theologians are as reckless as theologians who pretend to be scientists.” Amen.
