Redspectre , how does faith healing work?
Redspectre says2014-07-28T18:37:56.8864163-05:00
@comrade_silly_Otter, if vaccinations and medicine work how come people die despite receiving those things?
dietorangesoda says2014-07-28T18:39:41.1873785-05:00
Because they help but there not miracles or magic if a person is too far gone nothing can save them
Comrade_Silly_Otter says2014-07-28T18:40:10.9241939-05:00
Because vaccinations don't insure immortality. Vaccines insure immunity to a specific kind of disease. So I shall shoot you the same question, why do priests die with a connection to their God?
Redspectre says2014-07-28T18:41:33.6837854-05:00
Because god has a plan for them.

Whats gods plan for babies who die. Faith healing is a farce.

He needs angels
Comrade_Silly_Otter says2014-07-28T18:43:29.6096147-05:00
God has some messed up plan that is for sure.. If that is the case.

Original sin. That means that dead babies go to hell

I think I misunderstood faith healing. Would using a hot spring or acupuncture count?

Placebo effect
Kreakin says2014-07-28T19:10:52.5084083-05:00
Faith healing is letting a delusional person rant at you in the belief it will cure you. In the mean time you lose valuable time that may have saved your life! Get proper treatment from a Doctor not a wannabe Leper Messiah.

"Original sin. That means that dead babies go to hell" Babies don't go to Hell. Ever hear of something called the age of accountability? A baby is not old enough to understand about sin and salvation. They go to Heaven by default, because they never had the chance to repent.

"Faith healing is letting a delusional person rant at you in the belief it will cure you. In the mean time you lose valuable time that may have saved your life! Get proper treatment from a Doctor not a wannabe Leper Messiah." There are countless examples of how people, who doctors have given up on, have made complete recoveries. I'd call those miracles. Medical experts can't explain them, so faith healing is a valid option. I can't prove it, but neither can you disprove it.

Medical science is disillusion beliefs and hocus pocus magic. Vaccines have been shown to cause autism and other disabilities. Why would i trust in something that causes the problem? Miracles are proven and exist. Science is nothing more than a way of secular people telling people that its not religion

http://www.safeminds.org/research/New-Scientific-Evidence-Links-Autism-to-Vaccines-and-Mercury.html I can find a website that just lists things as well. Reality is that science is a biased political machine used by both sides to conjure up results to help them. Same thing with people who say homosexuality is "natural". Its not natural but while i cant prove my side, you cant prove your side. Therefore, your evidence is just as biased as mine and neither one of us can know whos right or wrong. The only thing that can prove it is god and god says that praying to him is good. Prayer is the only way to heal.
Sfaulkner says2014-07-28T21:04:14.4764298-05:00
"Medical science is delusional beliefs and hocus locus magic." Well, then why does it work? Why can an atheist be healed using medicine or having surgery? Miracles are not proven to exist, it is all the placebo effect.
Comrade_Silly_Otter says2014-07-28T21:11:47.8551818-05:00
Wow, you still linking autism to vaccines? That was disproved a while ago... I hope your not anti-vaccine, children deserve vaccines
Redspectre says2014-07-29T16:48:24.7122420-05:00
Im only against vaccines that have been proven to cause aliments. Im also against vaccines because if we use them then germs can become more powerful and more resistant to common medicine and thereby making it even harder to combat germs
Kreakin says2014-07-29T19:30:05.1659856-05:00
I very much doubt you could even explain the action of a vaccine?
Sfaulkner says2014-07-29T21:25:44.8420995-05:00
Redspectre, so you would rather have people die or be miserable? Also, you can improve vaccines if germs were ever to adapt to them.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-30T01:21:51.7898124-05:00
Maybe the belief that you'll be healed is good for you
The_Immortal_Emris says2014-07-30T08:56:58.3411355-05:00
Only certain types of germs actually "get stronger" and they are viral. Bacteria does not evolve the way viruses do. Neither do fungi or protozoa. Redspectre, this is basic biology.
