[moderator]just because you don't believe it doesn't help doesn't mean that others don't genuinely believe that it will...and knocking people for it isn't going to help in this situation. gotta learn to separate your beliefs from those of others and just because someone says they're praying doesn't automatically mean they're guaranteed not to do anything else...you could have easily suggested ways to help and donate without insulting everyone first...and it probably would have been more effective

much more important issues at hand in this thread, BACK ON TOPIC[/moderator]

And you have ABSOLUTELY no authority to say that praying doesn't work.

I bet Jesus had a plan for this! Can't believe people are still religious after seeing [expletive] like this

My mom's side of the family is in the Philippines, luckily in Cebu so I think they are alright

Dude, shut the [expletive] up. Why are you bringing up Jesus? This thread is about a [expletive]ing tsunami!

Other people are concerned about those affected by this so why are you [expletive]ing? You never have a damn thing to post unless you wanna get off about Jesus/Christianity/Religion and etc.

I have a lot of friends and shipmates in Japan and family in the Philippines. I'm happy I haven't heard any bad news.

So I'll take a different approach. Prayer in the wake of a disaster (or actually under any circumstances) is extremely offensive to me to the point of utter disgust. So seeing as how people were offended by my last post and would not like me to make such statements, I'd like fair treatment in not being offended by keeping your prayers to yourself.

Next comment about your hate against prayer Daco and it goes into your warning bar. I consider that it offends a great deal of people here.

Honolulu: Tsunami waves swamped Hawaii beaches and brushed the U.S. western coast Friday but didn't immediately cause major damage after devastating Japan and sparking evacuations throughout the Pacific.

Kauai was the first of the Hawaiian islands hit by the tsunami, which was caused by an earthquake in Japan, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. Water rushed ashore in Honolulu, covering the beach in Waikiki and surging over a break wall in the world-famous resort but stopping short of the area's high-rise hotels.

Waves about 7 feet high were recorded on Maui, and 3 feet in Oahu and Kauai. Officials warned that the waves would continue and could become larger, and a scientist at the tsunami warning center said there was likely some damage to mooring facilities and piers.

"We called this right. This evacuation was necessary," said geophysicist Gerard Fryer in Hawaii. "There's absolutely no question, this was the right thing to do."

Kobe Bryant’s parents are safe after being evacuated from their Tokyo hotel after an 8.9 earthquake and tsunami hit Japan on Friday, according to the Lakers star.
(Pamela Cox Bryant and Joe Bryant pictured.)
KCAL/9 broadcaster John Ireland, reached on the road, said Friday morning that he talked to Bryant who said his sister had been able to reach their parents.
Bryant is on the road with the Lakers, who were headed to Dallas, where they play the Mavericks on Saturday. The Lakers lost to Miami on Thursday.
“Apparently everyone is safe,” Ireland said.
The earthquake was felt in dozens of cities and villages (click here for coverage) along a 1,300-mile stretch of coastline were shaken by the tremors that reached as far away as Tokyo, hundreds of miles from the epicenter in the northeastern coastal city of Sendai. Aftershocks continue to rock the country.
Damage in the southwest area of Japan is widespread (click here for photos).
Tokyo was hit hard as well
