    No, it shouldn't. Science is what makes the world better, it actually does positive things.

    Stupid.
    What other way is there to approach and possibly grasp more complete understanding?

    Science is a double-edged blade - it makes things better, but at the same time gives idiots more tools to **** **** up.

    I'd actually be interested in scientific research into how "faith healing" works, and to what degree. I suspect a large portion of it relies on belief from the person being "healed".

    Belief is a powerful force, literally - something like the placebo effect?

    Or...something like that.

    It doesn't. They only "treat" people that have things you can't see, so you can say "your cancer is gone!" and no one is the wiser. But, if I am missing an arm, and they grow it back for me on stage, that would be an actual healing, except, it is never ever happened, because god hates amputees.
