The link for the Union of Concerned Scientists' "The A to Z Guide to Political Interference in Science" doesn't work anymore.

Here's an archived version at the Wayback Machine:

Hey All

Great to meet other medical professionals who dont believe in fairy tales.

Newest book that looks worth reading, from one of my favourites, Ben Goldacre: Bad Pharma.

Something any non science-trained atheist needs to understand: Science is not immune from corruption and political manipulation by big corporations. Without scientific training or scientific research skills, it can be quite difficult to know the difference between truthful and science and lying science. This table might help a bit:

  • Help! I need a pediatric / obstetric / childbirth doctor to help me by providing a quote for my new book. Does anyone know one, or are you one?

  • wrt the probable outcome of a 9 month pregnant lady walking or riding a donkey for 80 miles...

I find it easier to ignore them. See they won't understand that it's human effort that helped them. No matter how much you point they will cling to their idea. Infact  they will cling harder the more you point! 

Sorry to hear about the Lupus thing mate. But many people think prayer helps and I don't think we should be the ones to correct them.

Put it this way, imagine going to a hospital to deal with the severe illness of one of our loved one only to have some douchebag doctor snort when we thank him asking us to thank the lord instead. It's just picking fights with people who have more to worry about than the supposed state of their eternal souls. (The current state of their very mortal and very temporary bodies for example...)

Just ignore it and smile, you can't change their minds and all you are doing is making them not like you. If they trample your belief then be my guest to wail on them, if they don't care and just say things like "praise jehovah/allah/vishnu" then respond with a silly "and Merck/Astra Zeneca/Bayer" to go with them.
