Don't vote, pray for good leadership and let god anoint the winner.

Because we all know that faith healers can cure amputees.   /sarcasm.  (And yes even the nuttiest Xian has to agree with that point.)

My dentist believes that a severed limb can be regrown through prayer.  

Science: future progress.  Religion: medieval regression.

Dale, I suggest you find a new dentist... tell your current one you decided to pray instead of visit them.

Dale, but what will he charge to grow you a new tooth through prayer ?  Or doesn't it work for teeth?    ;)

Wow

I wouldn't have thought that someone could be so fucking blind.

At least with the other sorts of things faith healing alleges it can cure, there is a chance it will get better anyway, or there will be a placebo effect, or what have you--all sorts of ways you can claim the faith healing did the job.

No amputated limb has ever grown back so there is no false "evidence" for this.

Maybe I'd be a smart Christian but I'd pray for science to find a solution. lol

Science helps amputees.

Some 'good' work was done by church folks over the years. Surely being frustrated by 'simple truths', could bring out the best in us?
