"It wasn't until well into the 19th century that people began to question the value of bloodletting. Scientists such as Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, and Robert Koch showed that germs, not humors, were responsible for disease. Furthermore, medical statisticians tracking case histories began to collect evidence that bloodletting was not effective. Eventually the practice died, although it continued in some parts of rural America into the 1920s."

Baloney. Phlebotomy is the preferred treatment of choice for hemochromatosis patients today.

A Canadian physiologist, Norman Kasting, recently discovered that bleeding animals induces the release of the hormone vasopressin, which reduces fevers and kicks the immune system into high gear. Moreover, leeches are used in modern medicine because they work. Leeches serve as extremely effective artificial veins after replantation of an amputated body part by drawing off the excess blood or the congested blood, until the person can actually grow back small, venous capillaries.

You honestly think blood letting and phlebotomy are the same thing?

Please explain your rating of sin.
I know of only one Sin God rates worse then all other. I have never seen a rating system for any other sin.
Why did your god list his jealousies and insecurities first? that is more important than not killing each other?

the answer is humans made up your god, that is why he has human traits...

so why do you have other gods as the days of the week?

Do you know what blood letting is? Are you that stupid to think that careful needle drawing up blood in a sterile manner with a gloved technician and a band aid is the same as a holy man talking in tongues and slicing people with the same unwashed knife he sliced a dozen people before them?

Same thing?

Wow your IQ keeps dropping. No way have you earned a high school level education.

You make a distinction where none exists, numbskull. Bloodletting is bloodletting whether by sterile means or otherwise.

What works better is not the issue. The fact is modern medicine now uses an ancient practice once discredited by science as voodooism.

These loons will discuss bloodletting, calendars, Tolkien trivia etc. They will not discuss their nothing.

March, march, march, hate that God, march, lash out, march, march, yell at that nonesistent entity, march, march, march.

Still waiting for an examle of evidence or accountable position you would like to present vs a prime mover. A prime mover is the only evidence backed position. Thus you rightly cower.

Nothing to see here in Stumpville.

Your forum loon. I've exposed you relentlessly. You have no evidence that meets the criteria you hold others accountable to. You have no way to determine which possibilities are most or least likely. Why would I flatter a bigot as if he was the arbiter of evidence. You've looked. Nothing suffices. End forum. Oh, but this is about much more than your nothing.

I will compare the evidences and reasons to believe in a prime mover vs whatever it is your forum wants to make a case for. That scares you loons to death. You realize there are many disciplines that have concluded the likelihood of a prime mover. Not one. Many. You got zip.

Another day responding to nothing. Pathetic.

Uh huh. And people also tend to die. What's your point besides the one on the top of your empty head?
I see you must be another of those mindless True Believers™.

Just by your hateful comments alone, I can guess that one.

But bloodletting did not work--ever. It tended to kill people it was allegedly trying to help.

But idiots who also believed in imaginary gods, pretended that it did-- and continued to kill people by bloodletting.

Your references-- wait-- you didn't give any references, did you?

Nope. You just referred to some nebulous "history"...

... as imaginary as your god.

Thanks for playing.

BBSting is a brain-dead moron.

To be blunt.

What else, from a True Believer™, but mindless sheeple?

More bullsh7t. No references. No links to actual University websites.

Again, you lie.

Just like ALL True Believers™ do, of course.

I seriously doubt that BBSting knows much of anything.

He likely get his "information" directly from creationists' websites.

The things he posts, are that stupid.
