So I have been taking part in the Atheist Prayer Experiment for a while now.
 
I have been praying to the pantheistic goddess Amaterasu (You can see my prayer log below).
 
Nothing happened until Saturday night when I had the chance to make a totally unsupported inference that I am pissing her off (and she is expressing her anger on my family) from a unrelated coincidence.

Why?

'Cause I just found out that my sister has been having an affair for a long time and is now getting divorced.

But I won't make that sort of inference.
 
Prayer log:
 
Method:
1. clap twice;
2. bow head and hold;
3. close eyes, visualise Amaterasu and pray;
4. raise head when finished praying; and
5. then bow quickly once more.
