Re: “Film Review: Christian Movie Miracles From Heaven Goes Where Secular Hollywood Won't

What about all those amputees that god isn't healing? Many are true believers yet still no cure.

Amputees are often used as an example to demonstrate that there is no interventionist god standing by to reward the faithful. Not once has an amputees limb ever grown back. Ever. Why? Because there is no god.

There are certainly medical mysteries. Periodically & infrequently there are cures we can't explain. But, this mysterious nature is because we have incomplete information. If medical scientists were able to do more exploratory diagnostics we'd be better able to understand these "mysterious" cures. But, to say that unexplained cures are a miracle is just ignorance filling in for what we don't understand.

There are no miracles - only a lack of explanations. No need to inject an imaginary friend where none belongs. That's why I won't bother watching this movie - or any other in its genre.
