As far as I can see, we don’t know why most cancers that go into remission go into remission. But there is definitely a natural explanation… we just don’t know it yet.
Cancers that “miraculously” disappear happen to people who pray for them to disappear about as often as people who don’t pray.
Think about miracles beyond medical healing–Eucharistic miracles, statues of Mary and Jesus crying or bleeding…Our Lady of Guadalupe’s image. Padre Pio’s stigmata. These have been studied and examined by entirely secular scientists, and there is no “natural explanation” to those, either.
Actually, there is a natural explanation to all of those. You just don’t want to accept it. They are usually hoaxes.
A lot of the time, however, miracles happen based on the amount of faith that the pray-er has.
If you could demonstrate that in proper testing conditions, I know where you could get a million dollars.
Now, however, nobody seems to have the right amount of faith in God to walk on the water. If a person does not believe that God can heal their amputated arm, their amputated arm will not be healed. If a person does not believe that God can cure their disease, their disease will not be cured.
Convenient that God has set it up that diseases that go away on their own take less faith to heal than conditions that don’t, isn’t it?
How much faith does it take to heal an amputated arm?
And since there are many stories about miraculously-cured cancer, people are more likely to believe with their whole heart that God can and will heal them.
And then God will heal them at exactly the same rate as people who don’t have the faith in God.
Of course, such a committed skeptic is unlikely to take any answer to that question, simply because he doesn’t want to believe.
Yes, sceptics have a perverse desire to reject things which appear demonstrably untrue.
