Science! It works (AGAIN) bitches!

Last night I watched the news, and saw a story about stem cell research that has basically cured sickle cell anemia! Yeah, take that bitches! Science works once again. This story actually caused me to be quite amused. Not at the misfortune of the peole who suffer with this terrible disease, but exactly what this potential cure meant. Let's see if I can explain why I was so amused (and yes, my intent is to be sarcastic and insulting, if you don't like it, fuck off).

You see, sickle cell anemia is an evolutionary adaptation (mistake even) in response to Malaria (a killer of MILLIONS). Now, to some, malaria is some sort of god(s) given punishment (or at the very least, the psychotic sky dady created it). You know, yet another very obvious sign of a loving and benevolent being... Anyway, with malaria being such a horrible disease, and it killing millions, it actually produces a very strong evolutionary tendency on quite a few folks who may have a random mutation that allows them to survive. Not that evolution is true though, right? So now we have scientists that come along, and use STEM CELLS to virtually cure this disease in 90% of the tested patients. Notice how prayed didn't play into this in the slightest (because prayed in no way works...). If anything, the scientists are fighting against god's creation, and winning! Suck on that you impotent imaginary skydaddy! :P And then the thing that really amused me... Most of the religious people in the world opposed stem cell research! Even after it was shown that fetal stem cells were not required, they still opposed stem cell research on some misguided principles that I just can't understand (like attempting to understand people who think the earth is flat).

So far, in all of history, no god(s) have ever healed an amputee. Eventually, I am quite sure that scientists will develop a method for humans to regrow severed limbs. Like I said, "Science! it works bitches!" So, if you are in a life threatening situation where science has the answer, what would you do?

(Waits for the standard apologetic's answers of skypsycho gave us brains, you can't measure prayer, we prayed for the scientists, etc... They are so predicatable.)

How can you possibly say that an amputee has never been healed, ever? This is by far the most ridiculous argument advanced by atheists. The Bible in fact has one account of this happening.

Harry Potter has people flying on broomsticks. Care to take a broomstick up to a tall building and test that?

You probably are too dense to recognize circular reasoning when you see it, aren't you?

You're probably too dense to realize that you do not posess 1/10th of 1% of all of the knowledge in the universe. How can you state that in the history of the world, that God has never healed an amputee? Furthermore, how can you know that God does not exist? (Please spare me the "criticism of religion" response to this type of question that becomes tiresome after awhile)

The god as described by every world religion's holy books does not exist because it is logically impossible and contradictory. If I say that item A has property B, and the affects people in way C; yet B and C show no evidence what so ever, I would say that Item A as described does not exist. It's called logic... I don't need knowledge of the entire universe...

And again, what EVIDENCE do you have for a human amputee suddenly regrowing a limb?

The universe behaves EXACTLY as it would and as we predict without the need for any god(s). They are totally unnecessary, and soon the gaps will evaporate in which they currently hide.

A more correct statement would be that not all religions could be right. Islam rejects the Triune divinity of Jesus Christ. He cannot be God and not God at the same time.

And again, what EVIDENCE do you have for a human amputee suddenly regrowing a limb?

"And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him. But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. But Jesus answered and said, "Stop! No more of this." And He touched his ear and healed him." Luke 22:47-51

The universe behaves EXACTLY as it would and as we predict without the need for any god(s). They are totally unnecessary, and soon the gaps will evaporate in which they currently hide.

That sounds oddly familiar Lunk. Quick, who made the following statement?

""The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death, A slow death has something comforting about it. The dogma of Christianity gets worn away before the advances of science. Religion will have to make more and more concessions. Gradually the myths crumble. All that’s left is to prove that in nature there is no frontier between the organic and the inorganic.”

A free cookie for the correct answer ;-)

So you quote Hitler, a christian.... Your point? And again, you quote the bible as "evidence"? The bible is true because the bible says it's true? Circular much? Your post contributed nothing, much like any christian intellectualism, absolutely empty...

Sometimes I wonder why I even bother responding to you vacuous posts...
