Welcome to the forum, Lola.

How has science beaten God?  Can you answer this question without using strawman arguments?

Who on this thread has used a strawman? People pray for healing all the time, but an unambiguously miraculous healing (an amputee completely regrowing a lost limb, to use the site's example) has never been documented in response to prayer.

The link in the OP is about paralysis victims using technology to at least partially overcome their condition. The researchers and technicians involved went to school for years and worked in their chosen fields even longer. They devoted a significant fraction of their lives bettering the lot of their fellow human beings. Some of them may have prayed, but they clearly did not expect prayer alone to accomplish this particular goal.

So here is one example where science has "beaten" god, in that this combination of technology and surgery has accomplished things that prayer has never done.
