put the magnets on your surfboard and build surf boards with magnets in it.  i was loooking up the elements in chemistry and i found this 'How to Repel A Shark Attack:  Hunting the Elements  PBS America'  . its on utube, it shows how it works magnets repel sharks.

They found out that magnets , and rare earth metals repels sharks, so you can wear them and be safe.  Scientist just found this out.  Please tell everyone.  Its on utube, the scientist show an experiment, it shocks the sharks nose and they turn away.  Wear magnets in your swimming suit,  get swimming suits made with magnets in them.  Tell everyone please, shark attacks will stop.

Did Jesus want the shark to bite Bethany's arm off? That must be Christian logic 101. If the shark missed, that would have also been the will of Jesus. If the shark killed Bethany, that would have also been the will of Jesus. You just can't lose using Christian logic. Your religion is stupid, all religion is stupid. Grow up brainwashed believers.

If you personally have children, you must be the creator for these children, and you will have to make them sacrifice things so that they may enjoy their life's. This the same with God, He created us and the world and He makes us sacrifice things so that it will help our future. You may not see the plan, but there is a will and you may not believe in Him, but if you don't believe in Him, find out why and seek answers to your questions. Do NOT have a question without figuring out the answer, and pray and you will see GOD.

+Zoey
"He" has never even been demonstrated to exist. So how you say it cares is a lack of good sense.

There are many different and conflicting gods people believe in, none of them demonstrated to exist.

If people from the five major religions are told conflicting information by their respective gods, should any of them be believed?

If a hundred different religions have to be wrong for yours to be right, does this show that people from all over the world like to invent gods that don’t exist?

Clearly you're a brainwashed religious person, and like all religious people, you cannot account for your imaginary friend.
Demonstrate your god, or shut the fuck up.
Or don't. Keep making a fool out of yourself with your sky man myths, it's funny and delusional.
Zoey Rebecca
Zoey Rebecca - 4 years ago
+DaGingerHeadMan He does care. He gave Bethany the bravery and the strength to get back in the water. Believe what you want, but its my belief, but you cant tell me that my God doesn't exist when you dont believe.

Everything happens for a reason, my ass.
Your imaginary friend god is too busy not existing to know or care about anything about you, or anyone else.
Zoey Rebecca
Zoey Rebecca - 4 years ago
Everything happens for a reason, sometimes we dont know why things happen. God does things to people so they can use that to tell people about him. For example when Bethany got bit she said she will use his to tell her about her faith to the world! She was truly blessed! I am a christian, thats my reason. God bless you ;)

I think Bethany and her family are by far more amazing than the movie ever showed, or ever could. Their tremendous faith, so strong, and pure, saw them through the life-changing horrific ordeal in a way that Hollywood is just not able, nor does it seem willing, to portray, with its penchant for high drama. Bethany, and her family, though, accepted it all with the most remarkable, and calm grace, and unflappable perserverence. Truly awe inspiring~+~

I' m only twelve and watched ur movie, actually my whole family watched it and it was so touching. This summer my dad is taking me to Hawaii and he said it right after we watched Soul Surfer. Don't ever turn your back on God and never forget his love. U ROCK!!!

I can assure you doubting Joes and Joans that many others know that He came, He died, and He rose on the 3rd day to conquer death and sin. Bethany knows. Josh Hamilton knows. Many on here know; and one day all who ever walked the earth will know. And really, do you who refuse to believe need to lash out with profanity and hatred. How could someone you think is a fairy tale be such a catalyst for such emotional outbursts? I know why, and pray you will too someday.

Dr. Garza's hypothesis, transcends the shroud, and it is being taken seriously by archaeologists, microbiologists, and even those most closely associated with carbon dating that once disputed the now arguable proof that it is indeed older. I personally do not need one bit of researcher's evidently compilation. My faith is strong enough to securely know Jesus Christ gave His life for the sins of humankind. He has made himself known to me in many ways. I have my proof. It is in my heart.

No matter what ANYONE retorts, Jesus Christ walked this earth. He was really here in flesh and blood. That is a scientific fact that has been unfolding for years in research centers around the world. This one piece of evidence may reflect His remarkable journey to bring back humanity to their maker is the Shroud of Turin. Read my next post.

I dont see whats so inspiring about her story? Her arm got bitten off by a shark and she continues to surf. The survivors of the USS Indianapolis were in the ocean for 5 days without food or water surrounded by thousands of sharks, men got bitten by sharks and they had to continue life with the memory of watching their friends die and get eaten.

Well, you're the one who was bitching about how it was stupid of cupcakelover125 to say that she feels like God took her arm for a higher purpose or whatever, as if to say that she would need that arm to surf. I KNOW she changed her surfboard, I didn't say that she didn't. I simply said that she has obviously proven that she doesn't need her arm to surf, in reply to your snide comment. I don't need your tutorial on adaptation, as I have a disability. I never said that she didn't adapt......
Elle Keener
Elle Keener - 9 years ago
Are you an idiot or? Did I say her arm prevented her from surfing? I can obviously see that she can surf just fine. She lost her arm, she adapted. She changed her surfboard, she found different techniques that worked for her. She adapted. If I lost my leg, I would have to adapt and learn new ways to adjust. Simple as.

Don't talk to me about what you perceive to be adaptation, okay? I have Cerebral Palsy, so I have to use a wheelchair to get around. Bethany is still surfing, so my point about how she has proven that she obviously doesn't need that other arm to surf, still stands. Bethany doesn't need that other arm to surf, being that the loss of that arm HASN'T PROVENTED her from surfing.

If Bethany, who went through this trial, can give God the credit, why can't anyone else? If you watch the movie, the character says "I wouldn't change what happened to me because it allowed me to embrace more people than I could have with one arm" (paraphrasing). How many people, whether or not they have a faith, would have that attitude? I can only hope to have as much as faith as this young woman.

Gods anger and punishment went on Jesus and he forgave all sin every sick person that asked Jesus to heal them, Jesus never said no to one of them He healed every single one

@bLaCkKiTtYcAt0910 God also sent the earthquake to japan, then the tsunami, THEN the nuclear crisis, what a great guy, whether he's sending sharks to bite people's arms off or killing thousands of people for no discernible reason, he never fails to impress.

I think the species of shark behind Beth's attack is the tiger (so called because of the tiger-like stripes seen on juveniles) not surprising to me. When it comes to unprovoked attacks on humans, the tiger shark (galeocerdo cuvier) is number two the great white. (carcharodon carcharias)

@bubbleboo778 not it isn't just about religion in the least. It's about never giving up. And this is coming from a christian. I think she was blessed by him, I do honestly believe if it's not your time to go no matter how bad it is you will live. It wasn't Bethany's time. But I hate when christians or any religian says only people that follow by these rules (christianity) will get into heaven and will be blessed by god. How does anyone know what god wants? Can someone answer that fr me?

I've seen her movie 2x now, its the most inspirational and emotional movie i've ever seen. Bethany's a true gift from God, no other way to say it. If watching her movie and her story doesn't help you to know God's absolutely real, i don't know what can. I surf myself an its hard to get up with 2 arms and rip and she's doing it with 1 arm and ripping up huge haves, UNBELIEVABLE. She's an inspiration to anybody, surfer or not, God Bless Bethany Hamilton for speaking about God and her story.

@luxfero What is your problem? It could have happened to any surfer. It's not as though she went out there knowing she would be attacked. The reason she's an inspiration is because even though she suffered a tremendous loss, she didn't let it keep her from living her dream despite the fact that it seemed almost impossible to do so.

@luxfero what do you suggest we do ya fool?

And i mean it when i say you are a propper SHITHEAD. Great motivation. dont give the credit to jesus tho.. you earned it all yourself.

Rachel Reising
Rachel Reising - 10 years ago
@bubbleboo778 Well, I probably shouldn't have worded it that way. What I meant was that God spends a whole non-Christian's life trying to reach to them, but a lot of times they reject him. Although yes, you may realize all your blessings in your life if your not Christian, but when you turn to God, you realize what you can do with them for God's glory, and it's definetely and eye-opener....do you know what I mean? If not please ask questions...:]
Rachel Reising
Rachel Reising - 10 years ago
@hooch123456789hol Just a book on how to live? If you're talking about the Bible, then I highly disagree. The Bible is record of events that have happened during Bible times. It's another way for God to speak to us. Without the Bible, our whole world would probably be doomed because noone would hear the message. God wrote it himself. For us. So we can hear the message about how Jesus Christ died for me and YOU so YOU and I can go to Heaven. People just reject it.
bubbleboo778
bubbleboo778 - 10 years ago
@rachellauren996 wait, so ur saying, that god blessed us but only Christians realize it?
Rachel Reising
Rachel Reising - 10 years ago
@bubbleboo778 however, "kaYboi8o8" was wrong in saying that..........God has blessed all of us. Christians are just the one's who realize it. And Christianity is not a religion. fyi. All the stuff that we know has happened during Bible days is true. I don't see how people can say they believe it happend, because it is very apparant that it did. Christianity is a relationship with our Father, who died on the cross to save YOU and I so YOU can go to Heaven. Please accept him. <3

Rachel Reising

@bubbleboo778 I don't think you understand....actually, the movie is supposed to go out ESPECIALLY to non-Christians. The movie was a way to witness to them and show them the love of our savior and what he can do when you put your trust in him. Look what God did in her life! It's amazing! It's all God. All God. The movie was made in hopes that non-Christians would realize that and turn to God. Bethany's story is proof that God exists and is for everyone. It's so amazing what God can do.

@hooch123456789hol I'm sorry you feel that way but I do understand what your arguement is and why you think religion is so complicated. Because honestly, it is. But many peoples' religions have to do with their cultures and where they come from and is very big on spreading their love of God due to their region and/or family. For me, religion plays a major role in my family's lifestyle so I was born into the Christian faith.
