Welcome, Shmedelle. First, ignore the post by that moron, harrissteve. He only signed on today, and he’ll either leave after being a stupid troll or he’ll be banned soon if he keeps up that kind of dumb posting.
Second, I agree with Macgyver, but to expand, data that is dumped into the minds of very young children, before they develop the ability to reason, is accepted uncritically, and is often in “logic proof compartments” in the mind. This means people who are in technical fields such as the sciences or medicine but who have been inculcated (brainwashed) as tiny children will reason quite clearly using critical thinking in most areas of their lives, but the god junk is inaccessible to logic so they will still believe no matter how irrational it is.
I certainly agree with your evaluation of the silliness of those who think praying for you will help, however, as was pointed out, that’s there way of trying to be nice.
I wish your daughter well and hope you keep us informed as to her progress. Welcome again.
