Great article! I initially thought that it was written by some poor, honest 
genuinely struggling with the logical consequences of his beliefs. But then 
such a 
person would quickly either fall back on blind faith or reject his beliefs as 
false, so 
there can't be many around. 

On the other hand, I once spoke to someone who claimed he saw God miraculously 
fill a cavity in a tooth with amalgam while the faithful were invited to 
observe with 
little flashlights, so I guess someone will say that God *does* heal amputees.
