Unimpressive Arguments - Debunking Christianity: Science Is Doing What God Can’t Do: Answering Prayers for Healing

Spray-on skin, made-to-order muscle, and print-out kidneys aren't just science fiction anymore. Dr. Anthony Atala and Dr. Stephen Badylak, two pioneers of regenerative medicine, talk about the latest methods for building new body parts, and the challenge of growing complex organs like the heart, liver or brain.

What the Doctor Ordered: Building New Body


Harry McCall seems to be laboring under two false assumptions:



1. That God does not heal people.

2. And that regenerative technologies are not from God.



He also neglect the fact that there are documented cases of people's organs like kidneys being miraculously replaced after being surgically removed and subsequent prayer. Just look at what  Dr Gary Habermas says about miracles: CMW054: How would the Gospels Look Different if? Part 5, Interview with Dr Gary Habermas



McCall also neglects the fact that medical science and technology is not in spite of God but gifts from God.



26 He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.” - Exodus 15:26

  1. You may want to consider an alternative view by reading my book "Making Stuff Up is Unwise."

  2. "Making Stuff Up Is Unwise"? You mean like assuming that God does not heal people?
