Oh, yeah. It's a legit site. They even say you can email them videos and pics at wewillacceptproof @ gmail. LOL They have zero photos of feet. But there are 3 videos of the pastor, some other church elder, and the woman all talking about this miracle that no one seems to be able to verify. (I am SOOOOO shocked by that.)

This kind of thing pisses me off so much. If this had actually happened (it didn't) the pastor and woman would be falling ALL OVER THEMSELVES to show those toes and their full functionality after a single day. People like this are the worst.

GetlostMaps t1_jddwhzi wrote

No he did not. Sounds like you read a one paragraph summary and not the source material. Open a book. He was more about moral restraint and not having children until you could afford them, with nothing about people killing themselves by being stupid. The guy was probably a racist, was against birth control, and certainly didn't foresee mechanized farming, but there are small nuggets of gold in his shit, and you not even reading it to critically assess it to find them, then making up things he didn't say does you no favors. He was way off base on a lot of things, probably bigoted, oversimplistic and unrealistic, but not everything he said was ridiculous, and he didn't say what you're ascribing to him at all. The 3rd grade poster assignment you got your information from was inadequate. Do some more reading.

Jesus inspired numerous genocides. You don't seem to understand your own point.


handsforhooks44 t1_jdchdih wrote

They're tacking onto their story that a medical doctor who attends the church confirmed the existence of regrown toes. The doctor is married to one of the women who prayed for the lady. I don't understand why they're trying an appeal to authority. People who believe bullshit like this are usually skeptical of science at best and conspiracy theorists at worst, so how much would a medical doctor's attestation help their case?

I once had a friend whose mom always told the tale of how her younger sister was born dead (like came out blue, not breathing, and no pulse), but then miraculously came back to life an hour or two later without the doctors resuscitation cause they all thought she was dead.

I only remembered it the other day and had the realization that the only thing I had to go off of was her mom’s testimony. Never found any kind of news about it besides one article and one radio interview years later that was just her telling the story (in a Catholic magazine and a Christian radio station, respectively). Nothing at the time it happened, and not a word from any doctor. Curious.


solarssun t1_jda1eee wrote

The thing is is I doubt that the doctor wouldn't have tried to get the baby back. My brother came out with his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and was blue. The doctor isn't going to just let the baby sit there dead since it's blue.

vezwyx t1_jdamzjc wrote

> that’s really all prayer is, isn’t it?

I'm no lover of religion but "begging for things" is a gross misrepresentation of prayer. Lots of prayer is focused on the simple act of communing with a deity, without asking or having any expectation of getting anything in return.

There are plenty of valid criticisms we can level at organized religion or Christianity in particular. "Prayer is begging" isn't one of them

Let’s assume for the sake of argument that prayer DID regrow this woman’s toes.

Why would this be newsworthy? It would be newsworthy only if it were unexpected.

And it would be unexpected only if nobody really believed that prayer could have this effect.

If I believed god existed, I’d expect woman to be regrowing toes through prayer regularly. And if other people really believed in the power of prayer, I don’t think that this event would surprise them either.

Maybe in the Ozarks, they are part salamander. It is Lake Country.

Just a little research: "Salamanders, such as axolotls, hatch in ponds alongside hungry siblings that nibble on them. This may explain why they evolved the ability to regenerate missing limbs and gills. In contrast, humans have a rolling programme of replacing about 10 billion cells per day."

So it would take several weeks to regrow the toes, so I call bullshit.

Prayer gave me back my knees. All my life I’d been last in sports, I’d run in circles instead of straight for a fly ball or a pass- and don’t get me started on my ten minute hockey career. Well, the doctor said while actually laughing and breaking the news that I had two left knees. My mother wept. I never saw her again.

I wondered what to do. i knew I needed help, but everywhere I turned was… right. I was making no progress. I paced one square metre of the streets for hours, deep in thought. And then in church I saw the light. I prayed for the ability to take the left path, others yelling, “No! You idiot- you mean the right path!”

Little did they know. And one day, my prayers were answered! A local lunatic shot up a daycare full of ripe little knee donors!

It turned out that one was a match for my preferred skin tone, so I grabbed it before anyone from some other religion could.
