Question... [#315]

Doesn't this story http://www.nbcolympics.com/swimming/news/newsid=232071.html

kind of punk out your argument?

I mean, if this person (and there was another in olympic table tennis) can go to THE
FREAKING OLYMPICS than that's more PROOF there IS God than your lame argument esp if God
did heal an amputee, you wouldn't believe it if you saw it with your own eyes since you
ALREADY decided there was no God.

Methinks you should change the name to your site to:

My parents wouldn't take me to DisneyLand when I was 9 even though I held my breath until
I was blue in the face - therefore I KNOW there is no God dot com.

haha

Not in the slightest.  It's not like the dude grew back a limb.
If we come together and do not fight over religion, class and borders then we hold the key to a peaceful world. There are two possible futures in store; either a March of power and greed or a March of a unified human race.

What you have shown is that people are amazing in so many ways -- without a god of any kind lifting an ethereal finger.  Here are two other examples of people being amazing;


Smart people believe weird things because they are skilled at defending beliefs they arrived at for non-smart reasons. --Michael Shermer

The history of religion is a long attempt to reconcile old custom with new reason, to find a sound theory for an absurd practice.  --Sir James George Frazer
