I was meditating this afternoon and the very same thought came to me about "how quantum physics works to make prayers get answered". Weird. I haven't heard of the book you mentioned. Can you give me more info? Author or catagory? Sure hope it's not some New Age thingy but, I'd give it a shot, if you think it's worth reading.
I consider myself a very devout Christian (Roman Catholic, to be precise) and have to agree with you that many here would look down their noses about those things which they cannot yet comprehend, bless their hearts.
