Dear Professor Leibovici,
Thank you for your study.
Professor Leonard Leibovici wrote "The article has nothing to do with
religion. I believe that prayer is a real comfort and help to a believer.
I do not believe it should be tested in controlled trials."
If the metaphysical realm such as prayer has potential to improve the
health of patients, then why not test it in controlled trials so that it
can be of benefit to people?
I do not believe that prayer should be relegated to scientific study,
but if it can help ease suffering then why prevent further investigation?
