Jasper is a 10 year old dachshund, whose fate - in accordance with God's Divine Plan - included having paralyzed hind legs. Can you just picture the almighty creator of the universe having a good old chuckle looking down and seeing Jasper crawl around like a mutated worm, while his able-bodied brethren ran around in joy.

But alas, thanks to a clinical trial which involves a transplant of olfactory ensheathing cells by atheist scientists who believe in evolution, the dog has made rapid progress and is now able to walk! Click the link for video of "before" and "after".

Hallelujah, praise the Lord, amen! Who said science was heartless and cold? :)

Though it was a little insensitive of you to present it this way, I am really glad you presented it at all. ;P And anyway, if it's your opinion you might as well share it. Heck, this is a journal.
All these people un-watching you are losing insight from a terrific artist. Their problem, not yours.
I admire you for being able to proudly state your opinion with confidence and evidence. :thumbsup:

Not me, I love science. Never said anything was wrong with it. Science is amazing, it can do some pretty incredible things. But so can God, who said that it was his plan to punish that dog? Maybe everything doesnt go according to plan, I'm sure you've experienced that before. And besides, if it was His plan, then it was for a reason, to make the dog stronger or appreciate life! But He wouldn't have done it for entertainment and to laugh at that dog!

Not if you're an all-powerful all-knowing creator of the universe.

As if that means you dont have anything on your plate, besides, I like how you picked to argue that side of what I said even though I went ahead and said this side of my arguement too.

If you'll remember:

|And besides, if it was His plan, then it was for a reason, to make the dog stronger or appreciate life! But He wouldn't have done it for entertainment and to laugh at that dog!

Plus we humans still have to take some of the blame, yet we are too stubborn to let ourselves, so the atheists blame God and the creationists blame Science and its just a never ending cycle that goes around and around.

We have to take blame for the shit that we've caused, not blame it on other people or deities.

I could've gone off to say, "Well if science is so graceful and pure and amazing, then shouldn't they have been able to save the dog of those 10 years of suffering by using their science earlier in the dogs life!"
Just as you have said, "Well if God is this all-powerful all-knowing creator of the universe, shouldn't he have saved this dog from the 10 years of suffering by some gracious miracle or something?"

But we can't blame others for our own problems caused by our own hand, you could just as much have said why do people die in wars, why doesn't God save them from the fying bullets and the dropped bombs? Because we (the humans) are the ones who invented the guns and the bombs. He gives us free will. Yet all we do with it is go on to make our own mistakes and then blame others for them.

Can you honestly say that that isn't exactly what we do?

Wow. Reading this really broke my heart, as a person who loves animals, and also as a Christian. I'm sorry, but this is has pushed me to my limits. I'm un-Watching you.

Just the over all thing really, I'm a very sensitive person, so the smallest things can set me off. I do apologize though, I'm not wanting to start anything; just merely stating my opinion. The title is what got me though. God tortures little dog, I mean, that is a very....uhmm....well, a very strong statement that makes more than a few people squirm with un-comfortableness.
