I think you will find it happens in all religions, people who choose to live their lives on the basis of their particular brand of "Sky Fairy stories" rather than the evidence of their own eyes are by definition not rational.RogerS":1qiaxr5q said:My other question is why is it only islam that seems to breed these intolerant nutcases? Or is it a question that Hinduism, Taoism, Buddhism all equally have their nutters but that the press demonise Muslims? Any affirmative answers require documentary evidence!
Of course Islam is not a race but the Mail spouts such populist propaganda that the OP's story is heaven sent for it. The point was that it would not normally be so scientific.Digit":2mdf0bmv said:Islam is a race? Did you miss the comment about Christians?
Perhaps you'd be happier with a comment from the Guardian?

No?The point was that it would not normally be so scientific.

Recently the Guardian published an article about a climate 'skeptic' having changed his mind, made quite a spread about it.
Unfortunately, IMO, they failed to mention that his co author disagreed completely, in fact the Guardian didn't event mention her name.
Bad. An excuse for airing the silly person sceptic point of view.The Mail published the full report, both pro and con. Not bad eh?
I'd be a bit careful there and avoid jumping to conclusions if I were you. I don't suppose it is unknown for periods to cause back pain. But then again I am not a doctor, saw, muslim or otherwiseRogerP":1jid428b said:

#1, I suspect the relevance is the biology which is referenced in the article and Darwinism is pretty important for biology in fact it is pretty much key to many concepts.Dibs-h":1ifqmjnu said:I read it in the Sunday Times yesterday and once past the "shake head, is this real" bit, I found myself wondering
1. What relevance is Darwinism or in fact Creationism to a Medical Degree? I'm struggling to find an answer other than none.
2. Does being awesome in either make for a better GP, Surgeon, etc.? Highly doubt it.
I personally see no point in either being studied in a Medical degree. Had it been me on the course - I would have boycotted the lectures, from a "not wasting my time" perspective, and better spent the time reading up on some other course material, etc.
My 2p worth
Or worse still, based on the scribbles and mutterings of some old guy wandering around a desert.Pvt_Ryan":rjpokjrr said:.....
#2, Don't know about you but I'd rather have a doctor who gets A*s in Biology and fails RE rather than the other way around. Call me old fashioned but I would kinda like the guy doing the operation to know where everything is instead of relying on 'GOD' to guide his hands.
It was, yes she did. The health authority claimed that he had the right to treat whom so ever he wished, or not!Was this NHS doctor? Did you report it?
Because I would have expected better from them.So what, why unfortunate?
She wasn't menstruating, hadn't been for a week and was there on referral from the same hospital having been ealier admitted tied to a stretcher from the pain having taken a fall.Bad. An excuse for airing the silly person sceptic point of view.[/quote
Seeing as your next comment shows that you haven't read the report Jacob you know norrhing of the view espoused nor the qualifications, experince, arguments etc of the individual involved, just like the Guardian.
Any links? Yes, take a stiff drink, grit your teeth and read the Mail, at least then you will see how the Guardian applies its own censorship.
