Ice Fishing. by AAtheist Ice Fishing. by AAtheist
I found this picture on a Library of Congress site with a public domain license, so I had to use it for something :)

If you like this kind of thing please take a look at my facebook page at [link]

I tell you what, go to google, type in "faith healers child", and take a moment to look through the results. Hell go on google and type in "Dies while trying to live on sunlight" and take a look at the pure stupidity that comes up.

Religious zealots are perfectly capable of dying while praying for fish, and never think otherwise.

Don’t switch themes.
You were speaking about fishing so was I.
Also, majority of the links you kindly supplied are about the same case, there was no need really to double them up; with all respect to Lenin, quantity not always turns to quality.

In fact here is your list, all of these children had EASILY treatable conditions that could have been cured with quickly available medical care.

[link] Russel and Brandi Bellew, let their child die.

[link] Herbert and Catherine Schaibles let TWO children die.

[link] JaLea and Greg Swezey let their child die.

[link] Dale and Shannon Hickman let their child die.

[link] Carl and Raylene Worthington let their child die.

[link] Jeffrey and Marci Beagley let their child die.

I could easily go on, but here is a study from 1998 that shows that in families that use faith healing in lieu of medical treatment, out of 172 child deaths, 140 of them had more than a 90% survival rate if they were given conventional medical treatment. Eighteen more had expected survival rates of >50%. All but 3 of the remainder would likely have had some benefit from clinical help.

LoL so you are saying that the links I gave you have no relationship with the discussion we had? That you cannot see the similarity between dying while praying for fish or letting your child die while praying for a cure? Sorry, who is trying to switch themes?

Yes I apologize, I doubled up ONCE, if you really want I can find MANY other cases, I'll give you an itemized list if that is what you want.

They illustrate my point beautifully, which is, religious people are FULLY CAPABLE OF DYING WHILE PRAYING FOR FISH. This is a fact, one that has plenty of data backing it up.
