Victor,

                Thanks for checking in! We are OK. My immediate neighborhood did not flood, though areas less than a mile from me were completely inundated. The Marines were using huge amphibious vehicles to rescue people from their roofs. Fifty inches of rain in three days defies comprehension. The university just reopened today, so this is the first I could get back to my e-mail. Thanks much for checking in!

Keith

Thank God you are ok Keith, it was a miracle the flooding stopped less than a mile from you. I prayed that you would be spared and you were spared so my faith in God and my knowledge that he listens to prayers and works miracles in response to them is confirmed yet again :-)

I thought it highly antecedently probable that Keith was OK. I didn't pray to support an argument.

" I didn't pray to support an argument."
--A very great many people pray in the belief that god is listening, and if god feels like it he will intercede in physical affairs to the benefit of the subject of the prayer.

On an omniscient god such intercessory prayer is incoherent.
