Why won't God heal amputees?
 
I found a website that asks, "Why won't God heal amputees," and here is my answer.

FWD: To whom it may concern,

The process of regrowing a severed limb would be much too painful for
the human mind. The amputee would suffer major shock and trauma during this process, and would probably die or suffer a massive heart-attack. This is why God won't heal amputees. Does God hate amputees, does he single them out, or is it a cruel test of faith? Certainly not, he is avoiding a great deal of pain and suffering by not healing them. When we hear of God curing cancer and many other illnesses, we know he is healing the pain and suffering, not causing it.

Now you may ask, "Why an omnipotent God can't heal an amputee without pain and suffering?" Good question, and here's my answer; God is not going to prove his existence by healing amputees without the pain and suffering it would take to regrow a severed limb. The process would take months, maybe years! Many years of agonizing pain and suffering.. It wouldn't be worth it! You would scream in pain for the process to stop!

> God is glorious!

Losing the limb in the first place is a piece of cake, though ? No major shock or trauma?

You must be too stoopid to pray for some brainz, but that's how God planned it.

Oh, COME ON!

How is this not a fake theist troll???

Edit: Yeah, what Philboid said.

Yes, losing a limb does cause shock and trauma, but as far back as humans can study, we have always been able to repair an amputated limb, and save their life. God did not program the brain to re-grow severed limbs for that one simple reason. The excruciating pain and torment would be too much for the human mind, and you would probably suffer a massive heart attack during the process, and probably die!
Now you know why God won't heal amputees.

TROLL!!! (and not a good one at that)

You have no way of knowing if the regeneration of a limb would cause more pain. You have no frame of reference to base this assumption on. Skin cells regenerate constantly, as well as many of the cells in your internal organs. Bones mend using basically the same process. Were you to get a cut on your finger, a scab would form to protect the new skin while it regenerates and prevent further infection. Do you go through an excruciating amount of pain when a cut is mending? I doubt it.

This is obviously a fake post. No one can possibly be this abso-fucking-lutely obtuse, retarded, insane, illogical, and ignorant.

P.S. There are several species on the planet that regenerate lost limbs at great cost to their energy intake and survival needs. If it were incredibly painful, why would they continue to regrow it? What makes their brain any more capable than ours to deal with this supposed agony?

P.S.S. Your god can't honestly think he's sparing an amputee the suffering of regrowing a limb, that you claim would be incredibly painful, when he allows myriad sufferings to be so commonplace in the rest of the world. Face it, he's not real.

It is rather obvious that the new Dumb-fuck of the Forum (TM) is a trolling twat - and is probably about to undergo a rectum transplant to replace his/her recently removed brain chamber.

Is it time for a ban or solitary confinement?

nkb 09-02-2008 12:56 PM

In my opinion, solitary confinement would be fine, but I don't really care.

DoC? do you actually own a bible or are you just making crap up to irratate people? . . . never mind I think I just answered my own question.

What makes you think the process of the leg bone growing through the skin would not be painless and agonizing? You cannot compare a cut on the finger, or a scab to an amputated leg. That is insane and illogical. And I'm talking about humans, not lizards. I don't know why the regrowth of a limb is not painful to certain species. Ask God, not me. God did not program the human brain to regrow severed limbs to save us from excruciating pain and suffering.

When God heals us, he is taking the pain and suffering away, he is not causing it.

This is why God won't heal amputees.

Yes, I have a Bible in my household. Why would my answer irritate you? I'm only being honest and sincere. Does my answer sound logical?

God loves us, why would he cause pain and suffering just to heal an amputated limb? His omniscient mind knows it would take several years of pain and agonizing torture to re-grow a severed limb. God is love, not hate, and he certainly does not want to hurt us.

This is why God won't heal amputees.
