Churches seem so solid, with their huge spires, their billions of pounds of land and their impressive titles. It's hard to believe that it was all just made up by a few blokes thousands of years ago. In fact it's hard to believe that anyone still believes this stuff, but they do. So don't worry about whether God exists or not, just pray to Him anyway. Go into any of the thousands of churches up and down the country. They're mostly empty, so no one will see you. There you can sit in silence and discover your own invisible magic friend. Believe me, if you sit there long enough talking to yourself, he will come. There's not enough praying being done. If people had prayed more then Nazi Germany would never have started. Even today, if the people of the Middle East spent more time praying then there wouldn't be so much killing. The Middle East needs more religion.
