Yes, I am healed and grateful!
Of course I give credit for part of my ability to heal to McDougalling. Without certain nutrients that are abundantly provided by our nutrient dense diets, healing would be impossible. So I thank our Father for the good food and I thank Dr. McDougall for nutrition education.
The details of my healing may not impress you but I will share them anyway. I had a common accident with a common result. I cut myself while shaving. The blood streamed form the small incision. The cut was so close to my nose that I noticed it whenever I looked in the mirror. For the first two days, it was ugly. By day four the affected area appeared almost normal and six days after the injury (in less than 144 hours) it seems to be completely healed! (Perhaps you young McDougallers can heal even faster!)
Here is a question to ponder: If the first living cells/organisms lacked the ability to repair themselves (to heal), would they have survived long enough to have reproduced?
Do you have any ancestors who lacked the ability to heal?
It seems to me that this ability to heal/recover is essential for survival since our bodies (cells) are constantly incurring insults. While I say this only as a layman, it is consistent with what biologists call the irreducible complexity of living systems.
In other words, there are no simple livings cells/systems/organisms. Living organisms (at least in the view of educated scientists) are extremely complicated. There are no exceptions.
So if, for example, the ability provided by DNA (and I believe by our Creator) to heal was lacking, the organism would not be reproductively successful. Add to that many other abilities that are essential for survival and reproduction.
For me, all of this points to the Creator, a great Planner and Designer. Living organisms are able to survive and reproduce only because they are sufficiently complex--equipped by their DNA to thrive.
If you find the subject of irreducible complexity interesting, see:http://www.rzim.org/justthinkingfv/tabi ... fault.aspxhttp://www.apologeticspress.org/APConte ... ticle=1338http://doesgodexist.org/NovDec98/Irredu ... tting.html
So the next time you experience healing, think about the amazing ability your body has to heal itself. I do not believe this ability is the result of accidents...and I am grateful to be healed!
