That toddler was in freezing cold water.Ã‚Â Extreme cold is known to reduce the metabolism of a body.
Yes, that is true, but did you read the rest of the article? There was alot more to it than that. Take a look what happened even after the toddler was removed from the freezing cold water.
Paramedics were unable to start Oluchi breathing again. A medvac helicopter rushed her to the Royal London hospital where doctors gave her a 2% of surviving.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“For days we were thinking is she going to live or is she going to die.
Doctors were telling us she was never going to pull through.
They said that if she had not started breathing again in six hours she would probably not survive.
Six hours went by and when the doctors discussed turning off the machine we asked them to hold on.
Three days later my daughter suddenly started breathing again.
The doctors said she would never pass urine again because her kidney failed. But she is passing urine normally now.
They said she would not be able to talk anymore, she would not walk again - she would be a vegetable.
But she is walking, she is eating normally and she is able to say what she wants.
That woman was constantly being resuscitated.Ã‚Â The extra medical care that she received may have also had something to do with her recovery.
There were constant attempts
at resusitating her by her husband. She had been clinically dead for 15 minutes. There was no pulse, no heart beat and no oxygen to the brain in that time. Read quote below:
The usual result, even for those patients who survive such a prolonged period without a heartbeat, would be life in a vegetative state.
This boy received appropriate medical attention and survived. Ã‚Â How is that a miracle?
Before the boy had received appropriate medical attention, he had been without oxygen for a double the time that irreversible brain damage would (should) have already occured. Again, read below:
Dr. Jim Hayes was working in the emergency room at Martin Memorial Medical Center when the blond-haired boy was brought in that morning, apparently none the worse for having been without oxygen for double the time it normally takes to cause irreversible brain damage.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I told everyone then it was a miracle,Ã¢â‚¬Â Hayes said.
It's natural because it doesn't involve praying, sacrificing chickens, or dancing around shaking a gourd. Ã‚Â It's just the application of science. Ã‚Â Modern medicine has gone a long way to improving the average length of life of human beings. Ã‚Â It has nothing to do with the big bang, but if you can show me a force that has to have a supernatural source then I'm all ears.
What you're talking about is an artificial (though wonderful) machine that has been designed/created to help towards keeping a person alive. However, no such machine is miraculous in creating life itself, or bringing back the dead. No such machine is "natural".
There's nothing "unnatural" about praying! Especially in trying situations. Though the results themselves may prove miraculous and even defy medical or scientific explanation in some situations, the act of prayer is perfectly natural.
Many creation believing scientists/medical men have been a great part of science/medical breakthroughs throughout history. It isn't an issue attributing the "natural" to a God that created nature. It's actually quite...natural. It is in fact wonderful to be able to observe his handiwork on a daily basis.
I'm unsure how I can show
you a force itself, but the effects of such a force at work is another story. If one however refuses to acknowlege or accept those effects as ever being a result of a designer (or miraculous intervention by such a designer) (even if the doctors themselves are baffled), then perhaps it's not possible afterall. To those who do not believe, so often, no explanation is possible.
The power of prayer by the way is well known in medical situations. I've not heard of sacrificing chickens as having any results, or dancing around shaking a gourd.
