Before anyone screams, " It's a miracle ! ", think of the times you've had the hammer smack the primer repeatedly without setting it off . Think of hard primers in PMC brand ammo failing to go off in cheap guns that produce only a light hammer blow . Then imagine that the robber may have intentionally had the safety on some of the time just to scare people .
YouTube has clips of Richard Dawkins and The Atheist Experience, both of which will be useful to anyone wondering if prayer really works .
I guess the primers softened up when he went outside and re-hardened when he went in.
And I have seen prayer work. Believe as you wish. But I don't think you should call things mumbo jumber when it's obvious you have no working knowledge of the subject.
