Rain prayer rain prayer go away

The Skeptic Society’s online magazine eSkeptic has a great article about the governor of Georgia praying for rain a couple of years ago during a particularly nasty drought in 2007. I wrote about this back when it happened (here and here and here, in that order), and I’ve talked about how intercessory prayer doesn’t work, but this new article by Gary Whittenberger is a thorough and well-done piece, and it’s a very interesting read. Discuss.

[Update: I’ll add a link to this without comment. Thanks to Derek for pointing it out. Sigh.]
