#1 Too Lazy to Pray???03-23-2009, 12:04 AMWhen computers address the Almighty
Saturday 21 March 2009
No time to pray? The site, "Information Age Prayer" caters to busy bigots in the digital age. For a few dollars, a computer can transmit prayers to the Almighty.
Can machines address God? It’s a question that would undoubtedly interest Isaac Asimov, the father of science fiction.
The website "Information Age Prayer" does not shy away from such lofty theological debates and offers, for a few dollars, to recite prayers for the faithful who are too busy in this Information Age.
The concept is simple. Users have to click on their religion of choice on the home page, which leads them to a list of prayers such as the “Our Father” for Christians and the "Fajr" for Muslims.
Prices are based on the length of the texts and therefore vary. For Catholics, for example, the monthly fee for a daily prayer ranges from 70 cents for the “Hail Mary” to $49.97 for the rosary. And for the hesitant ones ($50 dollars, it’s a lump sum), the button offers a reminder: "Show God you’re serious - Get the complete Rosary Package." It’s an offer that’s hard to resist.
Once the payment is done, a computer belonging to the site's host will recite the requested prayer, every day, using the software, "The Last Cry." For Muslims, the site specifies that the computer speakers are turned towards Mecca.

This is so 20th century. The Buddhists were on top of this back in the 90s: digital prayer wheels.
Try to keep up.
