If you were praying and God is outside time, then if you don't know the result, what's the difference in praying for something before or after it occurs?

So my answer is, if you were praying, potentially. But The likelihood that you were praying based on your post seems unlikely, so I voted no.

Also, I'm an athiest when it comes to nicing.

I believed in magic for a long time, and never found any.

So you're a "nice" Nazi? That's not really nice of you.

I started to say "Easter Bunny" or "Tooth Fairy," but I decided to keep the pressure on.

So, are you saying 'premature congratulations' warrants more brownie points for you? or someone else? or ...?

Ultimately, this answers the question. Did he win? Then you can't nice him. Did he lose? It was definitely a retroactive "nice" in action.

I do like the modern physics explanation that someone else supplied.

People who believe nicing can have a retroactive effect are the same people watching a recorded sports game hoping for a different outcome.
