Unfortunately, education is not the answer. While none of us knows all the answers, if one carefully researches, you would see that in the past, even the late 20th century, there have been documented cases of God providing limbs for such people (miracles). Doubtless, fundamentalists have covered up much of the documentation, because they do not wish to believe all of God's love. These miracles have probably occurred more in other nations, where faith is stronger, due to their uneducated, yet believing minds, and tender hearts.

For one example, a man who was a dear friend, now no longer on earth, had told me that while he was a overseas minister, he knew of cases like this. He would not lie to me. There were some in USA. Yes, it is a real issue to discuss. The concern lies within posting this where so many people can see it.We do not see it now, admitally, but will, and mainly due to our USA nature of intellectualism, doubt, etc.

Thank you for your time, and asking good questions.

Wow.  Evidence or it didn't happen.  Sorry, but special pleading about hearsay cases doesn't cut it around here.  If you have a well documented case of God healing an amputee, than bring it.  If not, then don't bother because you will be ignored.  By the way, God is imaginary.

NO He is lying to you.  It can't happen. Never did never will.
The whole point of science is that most of it is uncertain. That's why science is exciting--because we don't know. Science is all about things we don't understand. The public, of course, imagines science is just a set of facts. But it's not.  Freeman Dyson

LOLWUT!? Education is so the answer!

By doing your research, you’re actually educating yourself. See? It is so the answer and you just contradicted yourself.

If that were true, then this site wouldn’t exist and we all would have known that! You failed.

Can you verify any proof? Why would someone do that? If I’ve had evidence of people’s limbs growing back, I would show it to the world and that’s coming from an ATHEIST!

These miracles have probably occurred more in other nations, where faith is stronger, due to their uneducated, yet believing minds, and tender hearts.

LOLWUT!? So for people to have their limbs grow, they’re supposed to be retarded? That makes no sense!

Smart person: Dear God, please heal my arm.
God: Hell no, you’re too intelligent.
Dumb person: Dear God, please heal my arm.
God: You’re dumber than shit, so I will heal your arm!

Nice fictional story, now provide evidence please, not some stories you cooked up.

I love to read books, just not your Bible. i support gay rights and women's rights. Why? Because i'm tired of the hate, stupidity, and your desire to control us all and make up lies.

Why not? You know when someone wouldn't do something towards you? Are you a mind-reader?

How about in other nations which lack audio and video recording equipment?  Hasn't happened, can't happen, and won't happen.  Search your own heart and you will know I am telling the truth.

Thank you for using proper grammar. Can you ask some of your co-believers to post here? I find these kind of posts both very depressing and infinitely entertaining at the same time.

We've heard claims of healed amputees before, but for some reason none of them are documented.

Well, there is the part in the bible where Peter cuts off soeones ear and jc puts it back on. Christians of course consider this documentation.

Since I don't believe any of the other religious claims in the bible, I've no reason to believe this one either.

If christians are so insulated from the concept of "facts" that they have no idea what one is, how do they know anything ever happened anywhere? I, for one, don't know. This faith things appears to ruin all of their interactions with reality.
