Prynhawn da!
Good Afternoon All,

I have been lurking in the forums for a few days and thought I would peek out and say hello.

I hail from sunny Wales, UK and raised a Pentecostal Christian but due to experience and education now Atheist. I would like to share an experience of the 'power of prayer' that I look back on and IF God is real, it makes him one sick SoB!

as a small child I had to wear custom boots that were meant to straighten my hip and strengthen my ankles. At around 7/8 the school doctor advised my parents I had a spinal problem and would have crippling trouble as an adult. My parents who at this time were Born Again Christians, held prayer groups with and about me and 'Praise the almighty', the nurse advised several weeks later there was no longer a problem.

Roll on 30 years and after nearly 2 decades of back pain and issues, I have been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondulitis of the hip and have some of the 'spongy' material missing between 2 of my lower discs. Therefore I can only draw 2 conclusions;

1. There is no god and prayer is bollocks
2. He healed me at age 7 but as an adult atheist he gave it all back 10 fold making him one sadisitic MF.

To end confusion, I believe conclusion 1.

Anyway, look forward to many enjoyable conversations with you all.

Regards
Steve

Bore da, welcome to TTA. You will find like-minded people here.

And a few nut cases.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Welcome Steve the cheesemaker from Wales. I actually haven't ever tried any Welsh cheese, but that is more for the food thread.
