Why do Protestants wave their hands in the air like those Khalimar worshipers in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom"? Are they making sure God "sees" them? Trying to get his attention?

I don't know. You'll have to ask them. Maybe they're just being obedient.....

1 Timothy 2:8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;

Been on FR a long time, this is the way it always works out:
Catholics question Prods for things seen in Scripture.
Prods question Catholics about man made tradition that often contradicts Scripture.

There are some verses which seem to indicate that as an instruction from God.

Many seem to ignore HIS preference in such matters.

And you are not Protestant?

I should have known it would be a mortal by the name of Paul the protesters obey. Talk about traditions of men!
