This sounds like a fun experiment, and probably has more meaning than Nobel nominated work previously reported on The Deets regarding sour ball hardness.
The site “Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?” uses that question to question God’s existence. Shouldn’t a God that’s capable of curing cancer, migraines, and athlete’s foot be capable of regenerating a lost limb? Yet, it’s never happened. Perhaps believers simply weren’t focusing their prayers enough to bring attention to the issues? That’s what leads to the experiment listed below:
Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?
If possible, get millions of people all over the planet to join the prayer circle and pray their most fervent prayers. Get millions of people praying in unison for a single miracle for this one deserving amputee. Then stand back and watch.
What is going to happen? Jesus clearly says that if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. He does not say it once — he says it many times in many ways in the Bible.
And yet, even with millions of people praying, nothing will happen.
No matter how many people pray. No matter how sincere those people are. No matter how much they believe. No matter how devout and deserving the recipient. Nothing will happen. The legs will not regenerate. Prayer does not restore the severed limbs of amputees. You can electronically search through all the medical journals ever written — there is no documented case of an amputated leg being restored spontaneously. And we know that God ignores the prayers of amputees through our own observations of the world around us. If God were answering the prayers of amputees to regenerate their lost limbs, we would be seeing amputated legs growing back every day.
I think they’re biasing their experiment by assuming nothing will happen. Shouldn’t they just wait and see?
Now is the perfect time to try an experiment like this. We have a perfect combination of religious fervor in this country combined with a bumper crop of amputees to work with. Perhaps George W Bush can champion this issue during the rest of his time in office?
Bringing believers together to grow limbs through prayer would be one hell of a legacy.
