An old Chinese proverb

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Give a man a religion and he'll starve to death praying for a fish.

--Judith Bandsma

And so too he'll pray relentlessly for cures to every disease. Funny though. It isn't until hundreds of thousands of scientists and engineers rack their brains and work their butts off that surefire, readily available cures start arriving.

Funny too that this man brings his dengue/leukemia/appendicitis/gastroenteritis/ ... -stricken daughter to the ER and then prays. A man of little faith in the power of prayer and in his omnipotent deity indeed!
