The blood on the carpet and clothes, the scar, and the boy telling us what happened, along with the eyewitness of both parents is plenty of evidence for me to believe what happened. Especially since I saw the before and after of the carpet and ear. "

I am quite aware of what you've convinced yourself of. You don't need to keep reiterating what you believe. Every logical person here has explained why the basis of your belief would be insufficient as proof.

I will add that I could walk up to any given three year old, pretend to pull a penny out of their ear, and if I was pretty smooth they would be completely convinced that I just pulled a penny out of their ear. What they thought they saw would be enough to convince them. And they would probably argue with people that told them otherwise.
Right, because the boy screaming in pain and freaking at the sight of blood could have been an illusion. All of that pain equates to his dad fooling him like pulling a penny out of his ear.
Haha. Whatever. You say 1 witness is enough, then try your best to discount 3 witnesses.
Proof, evidence, whatever you want to call it, it is convincing enough to me, as it would be to any one of you that had this happen to a close friend of yours that you have always trusted as an honest person, as well as their spouse.

You all claim that miracles aren't possible because they are always a coincidence. I give you a good example of one that could not be coincidence, and you all treat me as if I am a fool. Thanks for fulfilling scripture.

Have you heard anything about bubbling? I understand the no porn policy, the JWs had a strict no policy as well. Some Mormons have found away to make a girl wearing clothes look naked even tho they aren't. It works even tho you actually see less of them but they seem naked. I guess its not considered porn but it is funny. Here's a link if anyone is interested.

No I haven't heard of it. But I do agree that porn can tear marriages apart and can cause boys to grow up and see women as less than daughters of God.

why do we have poodles, yorkies, pit bulls, wolves, and coyotes on top of that. cuz they are all of the same species in the tree. the same as lions, tigers, cheetahs, and cougars are all the same thing as the little siamese kitten. the monkeys and apes that are here now also evloved from that same ancestor and they evolved in there own direction the same as we did. it takes very little to see what im sayin here if u just look at DNA.

First we're not Bible thumpers. That's a word you anti-Christ came up for insulting people who witness for God. No we're too smart to believe in those things. Too bad you're too stupid to not ask such a dumb question. Hugh?? Sp/Ch. Go jack yourself off dweeb! Shows how intelligent the comments you offer up here are.

Hence the miracle. The scar healed too quickly for science to be the answer.
No, of course I didn't have the blood DNA tested. I don't have a general distrust for my close friends or assume they are too delirious to remember the details of something that happened hours before.
Wow, you really didn't even pay attention anything I explained at all, you just want this to be a miracle so much you are willing to avoid all possible answers just so you can still tell yourself it is a miracle. Here are a few facts that should shed some light onto things, but I doubt you will even understand why they happen:

99% of all wounds are unknown to the person, even scratches and cuts will often never be noticed by the living organism, including humans. Even cuts in areas we commonly look at go unnoticed, such as on the hands. Often they heal, even scar, without us ever noticing until one day we notice a small scar of one and can't recall ever getting hurt there.

Most wounds that are "stitched" up by doctors do not actually require stitches, it's a precaution actually, to help reduce the risk of infection ... at least that's what they once thought. Turns out stitches are responsible for more infections than without, thus now doctors prefer to use the medical tape in place of stitches today, or staples if the wound is unable to remain closed with tape.

Even wounds we saw happen are often misrepresented in the memory, many events are, actually. As time goes on, the longer you live, the less likely you are to remember any specific event and the greater the chances of you remembering them incorrectly. This is a compression algorithm employed by the brain itself, so everyone will have this happen. When an event matches another close enough, instead of recording the new event, the brain simply alters some details with the old event to blend the two. A very well known, and understood, phenomenon. Technically, most senility is caused by boredom.

..... that's just a small portion of the facts your "miracle" ignores, a very small portion.

Are you completely ignorant? I know your religious leaders want to keep you stupid, and thus they make you feel like being stupid is a good thing, but seriously? Nothing evolves because it "wants" to, and nothing has stopped evolving. Sheesh, pick up a real book once in a while.

A child's story based on their memory of the event, assuming they are even being honest and not trying to get attention from adults since I know the Mormons hate actually listening to them ... ironically a crayon drawing from a child would be more reliable, but I gave you a small increase in the quality of the evidence you presented. Then you just ran with assumptions without ever actually looking into it or simply doing what any rational mind would. You considered it a miracle just because you wanted it to be.

Heheheeee... you are a smart cookie.
"God" is either a sadistic bastard or non-existant.
Let's give "him" the benefit of the doubt and go with the second choice.
No, they happen because of the hate and sin that abounds in the earth. The acts hate filled sinners commit. They commit them because they hate God. Kind of like a person as yourself. The very reason God hates sin. In the 10 commandments alone he told people not to do these things. Kill, lie, cheat, steal, hate, envy but when we put these commandments up in schools etc. you want them took down so you can complain that it is all God's doing that horrible things happen. You hatemongers don't want to see it because you are GUILTY! Don't blame God for your miserable excuse of a life and existence. Keep spewing this venom and you will eventually find yourself hanging at the end of a regretful choice. "Know this one thing, God will not be mocked". Your time is coming. Wait and see.

Growing up I had a Bible class in my school..... I learned verses and recited them and it earned me a week at summer camp..... paid for by churches. Therefore.... I feel there should definitely be separation of church and state. The state should not require any child to participate in any religious activity, be it a Bible study or a prayer or whatever the observance may be. With that being said.... the state also should not prohibit the personal observance of ones religion. Otherwise, church and state are no longer separated, but instead governed. The fundamental principles of christianity and democracy are free will and the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness have been obstructed. How each person defines happiness is up to who? That person. It doesn't matter if you're 8 or 80. I had a Bible teacher when I was in school,,,,,,, but my mom took me to church at least twice a week.... much more often than I heard the Bible in school...... A Bible school teacher,,, or a Pastor won't save your child's soul,,,, you won't either.

They have never stopped evolving... even human have Never stopped evolving... Just a few hundred years ago the Average human was several inches shorter than the Average human today... Our genetic makeup has been altered by our own technological advancements and ability to mix with previously separated populations.. But we as a species have lived in a fairly stable eco system for 1000's of years so change is very slow because environmental pressures do not force faster adaptations.. But placed in a Drastically different environment that rate of change speeds up Dramatically.. For example when humans are placed in space under zero G our bodies drop calcium very fast and muscle mass deteriorates.. Not that's not a problem except that you have to come back to earth and such adaptation could kill you if allowed to continue.. but place a small group of humans in space for several generations and the offspring might not even be recognizable as Human Being...
