.... about a year ago , a woman in America drove into a flooded
river ,windows up , car sank , rescuers unable to smash windows ,
hey presto , woman comes to surface , into arms of rescuers , car
removed from water , windows still up . please explain ?
I wasn't really gonna comment on my thread again, since it was a PUI
But this I couldn't resist.
I deleted the first half because it's a reiteration of what is normally said about science (ha, and at the computer you sit at and type damnations of
it!), that it's evil, and it does harm, it created the atom bomb, and so on and so forth.
But it's also, probably the very reason you're alive right now, I wouldn't be if my mother didn't receive that c-section, or perhaps tuberculosis
could've gotten the better of a loved one, we're lucky that we had science to produce the majority of things around us, but we just go ahead and
take them for granted.
Now as for miracles.....sigh.... there simply things that are deemed unexplainable, but in well I'll say it ALL cases they are explainable.
Now for the woman, I wasn't there, I didn't see it, hell I don't even have a source!
So I'll chalk that up to a story, I've heard many miracles, my favorite one, was told by a classmate.
Her: My father was sick, sick and dying, he was a prison guard, and he was getting sick, he checked himself into a hospital, (before he was declared
as a dying individual) and he got sicker, the prisoners, opted to pray for him, and most of them did, as he was a likeable character.
He just got sicker and sicker, to the point where moving was near impossible, and was given a timeline before death.
He decided he wanted to go home with his family, and screw the medicine.
He got up and went off on his way home, struggling.
He got better and better.
It was a miracle of god.
Me: No the doctors were overdoing it, and he didn't need, or was somehow ill affected by the medicine. No divine intervention.
Her: But prayers were cast, and god heard their cries, and healed him.
Me: Not really, people pray all the time, and nothing happens
Her: He must then have work left to do.
Me: What about the children who were prayed to much more, and hadn't the chance to live, while a 50+ year old man, go to live instead?
Although, she's still a devout believer, that god healed him.
The God Phenomenon has only kept on going, because it explains the unexplainable. It really doesn't but it explains things people don't want to
There are no miracles, just things people want to believe are unexplainable.
