I can’t believe this is really real… -Cam
the thing that makes this really bad is not just that this is in there, but that it is the FIRST thing. smh.
Strange, doesn’t this sound weirdly similar to your bigoted statement that a disbelief in evolution should disqualify doctors from practicing medicine? You are not against bigotry, you are against religious bigotry and for atheistic bigotry. Shame on you for this nauseating double standard.
The understanding of biology and physiology are intrinsically tied to the theory of evolution. Only by that theory do the observations of those fields make any sense at all. To think that I’m a bigot because I demand such an understanding from my medical professionals shows an astonishing misunderstanding of the term “bigotry” on your part. Would it be bigotry to disqualify someone who denies the germ theory of disease from a obtaining a medical license? But, perhaps most troubling is the disregard for evidence and critical thinking required to deny evolution. Qualities which are kind of important in a doctor, says me. Pardon me for wanting a doctor who values evidence over their own personal beliefs. It’d be nice to have a doctor who can explain why I have an appendix or wisdom teeth or why that majority of my genes are useless vestiges (beside “because god is a crappy designer”).
Even the biggest and most powerful Christian institution in the world, The Vatican, accepts evolution (as well has the big bang and age of the universe). Now why would they make such a huge concession if they didn’t feel that their credibility (what little they have) was at stake?
But alas, I can’t say that I’m surprised that a right-winger would misunderstand the meaning of bigotry (or scientific qualification). Afterall these are the folks that think preventing bullying is religious bigotry against bullies and equal rights for gays amounts to bigotry against Christians. And now demanding a basic understanding of science (namely: how evidence works) to be a doctor is a “nausiating double standard”. go-away-bright-light.
