Side effects of the Leibovici RCT of remote, retroactive intercessory prayer
An important side effect of the Leibovici paper is its impact on the
religious community. Please search in Google: “Leibovici” and then
“prayer” on ‘search within results’ (at the bottom of the page). You will
have a lot of entries where many religious congregations take the
Leibovici ‘experiment’ as a proof of the prayer benefits or of the
existence of God.
Evidently these persons didn’t read the Leibovici auto-reply
(Author's comments, BMJ, 12 march 2002, Leibovici L).
