Faith Hospital December 30, 2006

Faith Hospital

The Atheist Ethicist had a great posting the other day.

To sum it up: If you were sick, where would you rather go? A hospital based that relied solely on Science? Or one that relied solely on Faith?

The question may be irrelevant. I’d assume even the most religious of people would opt for Science Hospital, even though they’d pray while there. But maybe I’m wrong on that.

However, the question does underscore how important Science and the Scientific Method are. We wouldn’t want to be in a world without it, and yet you see so many fundamental religious people demonizing the whole practice in general.

Regardless of where you stand on faith, let’s admit that Science is essential and we’d be lost without it.
