We pretty much know that somebody has not had a limb grow back.
If you want to tell me that it has possibly happened somewhere, and we just might not have heard about it, do you really believe that, or are you trying some silly logic trick? Me thinks... no, me knows, 'tis the latter.
And you do too, unless you are lying to yourself about that, as well.
I used it merely to illustrate the dubious nature of some of the claims surrounding a belief in a god...people do cite certain things as miracles...and I have pointed out that these miracles are occurrences that are not really that miraculous at all...in these cases, just the course of nature, or a doctor, could execute the exact same thing.
Don't know what your point about somebody flapping their wings across the Atlantic is, I do see it as just another technique to obfuscate and confuse the issue, so that the real point of dubious miracles can be muddied up and avoided.
On one hand, you say "we don't know that somebody hasn't grown a limb back", which is really an acknowledgment on your part that this might be a good example of a true miracle...and then you go on to try and establish that hey, true miracles aren't important to the establishment of the truth of god's existence...
You can't have it both ways.
And no, nobody has had a limb grow back.
Don't be silly. It smacks of desperation.
I don't blame you, because you don't have much else to go on, but c'mon.
