Holy crap, dude. This is nuts. Seriously, dangerously nuts.<quoted text>
I can appreciate your logical reasoning from a human standpoint. But the creator knows what is best for us. You want to think that is a probitition from eating or drinking blood. I'll give you a senero that will help to clear your understanding. Lets say you were in a terrable auto accident, the Dr. says you need blood, you agree for him to give you whole blood. The nurse comes in with several pint glasses of blood and tells you to drink it all. Yuck you would never do that. Now explain the difference! At least if you drink it, it passes through your digestive system and cleans it somewhat of some impurities. But if you shoot it straight into your viens there all kinds of risks including AIDS Hepititus C any number of STDs Jaundice etc. Really blood is bad medicine no matter what a Dr. might say. And too there are blood subtitutes like saline solution that does pretty much the same thing as a blood transfusion without the risks.
First off, you lose with the statement that the "Creator" knows best.
There is a fundamental and HUGE difference between injection and consuming any substance. One enters your stomach through the throat, the other goes through the skin and into the bloodstream directly. If I put food in your stomach it gets digested...broken down into usable and unusable components then dealt with correctly, if everything goes right. If I put a cheeseburger into your blood stream it would surely kill you. It would be like putting sand in a gas tank.
Now, there are risks to infusions. There are risks to eating a peanut butter sandwich. When I was about 9 my cousin got choked eating a pb sandwich. My aunt had to Heimlich him.
Should we avoid eating pb sandwiches?
Medical procedures all carry risk. You have to do the cost-benefit analysis and decide if they are worth it. Clearly, absolutely UN-controversially (outside of certain fringe belief systems) blood transfusions are worth the risk in cases where blood is needed.
Someone else mentioned that organ transplants are now ok with the JW. Is that true? Because I guarantee you will not get an organ transplant without getting some blood. And I'm not just talking about your own banked blood. There's almost certainly going to be some blood from the other person in that organ, even if it is trace amounts.
