Title: Debate Proposal: It is better not to rely on religion/God regarding illness
Post by: CausalCode on December 19, 2017, 06:15:12 pm
Title: It is better not to rely on religion/God, and actually rely on science/medicine instead, when it comes to sickness.

Note that when people avoid medicine/ science, and rely on "God", they most likely die!

Well, a quick simple -- and perhaps I should say obvious -- answer is this: if it concerns a physical illness, then get normal medical help (what we may call the proper variants and such) (while not ignoring God). If that does not work, then seeking miraculous healing from God is the next step.
