What has Giles ever done to you? Actually a friend who knows him says, he

He thinks (Thought for the Day) that petitionary prayer is just "hoping"
or "wishing" which rather misses the (religious) point.

And he refused to be drawn on whether God actually exists when questioned
on Today.

Anyone who looks for proof that God exists and doesn't accept it as a fact
because other people think so gets a big thumbs-up from me. Religion as a
moral code for living together harmoniously makes a great deal of sense to
me; but then they go and spoil it by asking us to belief in something whose
existence can't be proved - and even make a positive *virtue* out the fact
that there is no proof. That goes against my ethos of believe nothing;
question everything; if observations don't fit the theory, maybe the theory
is wrong.
