Why Won't God Heal Amputees? / Re: humans healing amputees!!
« Last post by jdawg70 on August 27, 2016, 12:30:59 PM »
So many mentions of god's blessing in the comments.

So, so many.

The surgeons that made this possible getting very few props here.
The technicians that made this possible getting very few props here.
The administrators that made this possible getting very few props here.

There were many, many, many human beings involved in making this possible.  It's difficult to imagine how many different people need to be thanked - from the technologist that maintains the biological storage facilities to the building maintenance staff who ensured the hospital and operating room had stable and reliable power to the government inspector who ensured the operating room was up to code...
...so many different human beings involved.

And so many thanks to god and proclamations of how much he is and is going to bless Zion and his family.

Sometimes I think that if people took the time to think about and give gratitude to the entities who were actually involved in making amazing things happen the world would be a better place.  People would really and truly understand how their actions and decisions impact other people, even if it seems unrelated at the time.

But, you know, invisible magic hands-off deity who lacks basic communication skills...yeah make sure to pet his damn ego.  Fuck the rest of the hard working people out their.  No need to remind them how impactful they have been.  I mean, if someone wants to give thanks to god that's fine and all but I just hope it isn't at the expense of forgetting about all the 'little people' who were actually involved in making it happen.

By broadening the Pacific Remote Islands National Marine Monument from almost 87,000 square miles to more than 490,000 square miles, Obama has protected more acres of federal land and sea by executive power than any other president in at least 50 years and makes the area off-limits to commercial fishing.

What a horribly short-sited lying satanic President who is only interested in ruining the planet.     &)

Really, in the ridiculous news cycle we get over and over, some things never get the thanks they deserve - just keep the "Bundy" fisherman out of the area

Edit, sorry looks like to read article must let washington  post into your email

Chatter / Venus and Jupiter so close, they will look boring.

In a few hours on the US sunset, Venus and Jupiter will be 2-3 arc-minutes apart. They will be pretty close for European veiwers as well.

In Australia, they were 30' apart, which is not so amazing. So I will have to wait for the next one. ... which will be in a few hours time, because we get two bites at the mediocre cherry.

Those hands came from a dead child's body.  That's the only sad part for me.  Something in my mind automatically went to seeing those hands as a dead child not necessarily "regrowing" limbs. 

Don't get me wrong I'm glad Zion got the hands but I'm sad they came from a dead child. 

If a god would help out then there does not have to be a dead child.  Sorry so gloomy this morning.  I'm just really sad about the dead child.

What I find amazing are the hand-less artists that paint and play musical instruments despite their handicaps.

General Religious Discussion / Re: Killing in the name of Charlotte's Web?

Let's just sum this up.  People don't kill in the name of Charlotte's Web because it is not violent.   

You can however get very inspired to kill somebody by reading the bible and thinking this is what a God wants me to do.  History is my evidence.

One thing that always gets me about this BS is that there were less people on the planet, in the past for instance in 1983 bc the was about 250 million people on the planet. there is now 27 times that many. So if past life was true then millions of us all lived the same past life, it makes perfect sense doesn't it. The other thing is nobody seem to be anybody insignificant. they are always someone special or have something eventful.  Total BS anybody believing it is an imbecile.

Maybe you mean year 983 there was 250 million  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population_estimates

If you want to compensate for higher populations, you just reincarnate people faster. Also, you can pull people in from parallel universes, that have had mass extinction events.

yep. Zion seems like a pretty cool kid and I do hope he does very very well.    Again, the gods are failures and humanity has gone ahead and done what their believers constantly make false claims about.

Religion & Society / Re: God and Earthquakes

I was thinking of that too.   One can pretty much guarantee that the parents were treated medically when they were children but they want to experiment with their religion by sacrificing their children to it.

You should say "I now know what Eddie was saying".
You clarified what you meant, so further comment by me would have been superfluous.
