Why DOES god hate amputees?

January 2, 2010

This was are part of a list of questions that should be posed to “believers” that I ran across some time ago. I did not think much of it at the time but a thought recently crossed my mind.

The premise of this argument is that prayers “appear” to help people who are sick. A gravely ill person recovers, cancers go into remission, all because of the “power of prayer.” And yet, there has never been a case where an amputated limb spontaneously regenerated upon the amputee and his/her whole family and friends praying for it to happen.

That, in itself, should prove the non-existence of god.

Here is the thing that popped into my head. Starfish, lizards, sea cucumbers, etc. can quite easily regenerate lost body parts. Do they have special access to god? Can they even pray?

How about this? Humans can regenerate; we regrow our lost baby teeth. Children can also regenerate lost fingertips. The human liver can regenerate from as little as only 25% of the tissue. No prayer necessary.

By studying the animals listed above, scientists and doctors hope to someday provide real help to amputees, not just the imaginary kind that comes from prayer. Until then, you can either send your checks to the tv person representing the imaginary god, who will ¬†perhaps “answer” all your other prayers, or you can send it to the research centers working on regeneration. If not for yourself, do it for the kids (and grown ups too) who have lost arms and legs in the holy wars. Oh hey, perhaps god likes to take limbs, not give them back.

HAHAHA, How poetic is this! [update: original link was dead so it has been updated. You can find out more about this story at: http://michiganoidv.blogspot.com/2009/10/meleanie-hain-murdered-by-her-estranged.html]

She would get a Darwin award if she had not given birth already. Now that the parents are dead, hopefully the kids will grow up smarter. I can only hope.

What was that about an armed society being a polite one?

You might be a fucking idiot…

If you have a bumper sticker that reads, “An armed society is a polite society.” It shows you don’t know how to think. Why would a society where everyone has a gun be polite? Cuz everyone is walking around making sure they don’t piss off anyone else lest they get shot. The bumper sticker should read, “An armed society is a scared society.” Dumbass.

You might not be an idiot if you like living in fear.
