Nick Vujicic still doesn't have arms, and neither do many landmine victims and Iraqi war veterans.

As for faith, it is not required by your God.  Look up 1 Kings 18.  If you don't understand what I'm saying, come by the forums and I'll explain it.
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

Listen to Nick Vujicic's testimony.


Healing amputations is not making someone accept their fate.  Any deity has been claimed to do that, and if you can prove to me it was only ever the Christian God, go to it.

Healing an amputation is growing a limb to replace that which was lost.  Amputations are not a joy to live with.  You get ulcers on the stumps.  No amount of "positive thinking" will get rid of those.
