Tennessee Supreme Court Hears Case of Mother Who Tried (and Failed) to Heal Her Daughter’s Cancer with Prayer

atheistassessment:

In early 2002, a doctor told 15-year-old Jessica Crank she needed to go to an emergency room because of what was later diagnosed as Ewing’s Sarcoma, a cancerous bone tumor. Instead of doing that, her mother Jacqueline Crank turned to Jesus instead.

Jessica died later that year.

Hi Black Atheists, My cousin, who is my age and the only other non-believer in my family, gave me some Ray Hagin DVDs and believes they will change my mind about being an atheist. Have you heard of Ray Hagin? If you have, what can I expect?

I’ve heard of Ray Hagin, I’ve seen some of his videos. You can expect from him a lot of things that make a lot of sense. He speaks about a lot of things that should be common knowledge. When I watched those few videos, I didn’t feel like I was going to change my mind about atheism. I seen it as someone with common sense about what’s going on all around us. There are a lot of pastors like him. I agree with a lot of what he says in his videos, but that doesn’t convince me that I should reconsider my atheism. He can make all the sense in the world, but that doesn’t inexcuse religion as a whole.

In interviews conducted across the nation, leading anti-science activists expressed their concern that the American people, wracked with anxiety over the possible spread of the virus, might desperately look to science to save the day.

“It’s a very human reaction,” said Harland Dorrinson, a prominent anti-science activist from Springfield, Missouri. “If you put them under enough stress, perfectly rational people will panic and start believing in science.”

Additionally, he worries about a “slippery slope” situation, “in which a belief in science leads to a belief in math, which in turn fosters a dangerous dependence on facts.”

At the end of the day, though, Dorrinson hopes that such a doomsday scenario will not come to pass. “Time and time again through history, Americans have been exposed to science and refused to accept it,” he said. “I pray that this time will be no different.”

What is the hardest part of being Black and an atheist for you?

The hardest part is getting over the fact that your black friends and family may not agree with you and decide that you’re not worth being around anymore. To see other black people so brainwashed and giving their time and money to a sky-daddy and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Prayer does heal!

Yea, just like how water is holy. Prayer heals does it? You got a lot explaining to do about all these amputees.

Let's say there is no God, what is there to live for? It's pretty depressing just to think we were put here for no reason, and once we die, we're dead for good.

You think you need a god to have a reason to be here; to have a reason to live? Well let me go on ahead and get this 12-gauge shotgun and blow my brains out.

Why do you use tags like 'faith' and 'prayer'? People go into those tags not to see atheist posts.

Uh no. If they pertain to the the topic or image in question, I will use them. Thank you!
