It Takes Prayers 2,600 Years to Reach Heaven, Scientists Say.   Leave a comment

God hears all prayers – but don’t hold your breath waiting for a reply. Astrophysicists estimate that it takes a mindboggling 2,600 years for your urgent pleas to reach Heaven!

“It is the consensus of experts that the physical location of Heaven is most likely at the center of the galaxy, roughly 26,000 light years from Earth, in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius,” explains theoretical physicist Dr. Kyle Underbrick.

“That means it would take a beam of light 26,000 years to travel from Earth to Heaven. It’s a cardinal rule of science that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, 186,000 miles per second. But even if one assumes, as we have, that prayer can travel ten times faster than light – far faster than biologists have clocked thoughts moving through the human brain – that means a prayer uttered on Earth would take 2,600 years to reach God’s home.

“If you pray for a cure for your sick mom today, the message will reach the Lord circa 4615 AD.”

The surprising calculation arrived at by a joint team of European and U.S. astrophysicists has been confirmed by computer models. But Bible scholars say the findings are no reason to despair in a time of need.

“Remember, God is omniscient,” notes the Reverend Owen Nevistown. “If you are on the deck of burning ship, He is well aware of it, whether you’ve dropped to your knees to pray or not. And He will see that your life is spared, unless of course your survival is not part of the Divine Plan.”



DEVOUTLY religious leaders like Sen. Ted Cruz believe that prayer is an effective tool.
