God is Imaginary: #1 "Try Praying": Part 2

In the box on the bottom of Try Praying, they discuss the rationalizations commonly attributed to prayer. The one I find most interesting is the first one:

The logic: If you pray and God answers your prayer, then God would have revealed himself to you, and you would know that God exists. That would take away your free will to believe in him.

Soviet Poster a Day has a post which quotes a Soviet Atheist Magazine, "God exists, but we do not recognize him." Knowledge of the existence of God is irrelevant. Satan knows God exists, but he does not recognize him. There is a stark difference between God, and my God. In fact, as Roman's 1:20 states, "
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." Knowledge of God in no manner violates free will. Rather, such knowledge is provided, so that only through machinations of intellect can it be denied.

Back to the Fifty Reasons.
