@JSH, this is the first time I have ever gone to a conference where there were bible thumpers in the exhibition hall. There were also a couple of FLDS complete with their poofy hairdos we see on TV and 1890s style poorly fitted dresses. They driven in and escorted to all of the classes by who I assume to be their husband. One of the MD presenters started her lecture with "I am not a scientist, but...." and then threw everyscaremongering myth going around at the wall, including the thmerison MMR/ Autism 'link'. The other two lecturers appeared to be embarrassed. I gave her lecture a scathing review although I wish could have done more. If you are NOT a scientist and don't understand the process, why not get a REAL scientist to explain things?

Hello, I've been an ICU nurse of one sort or another for a gazillion years now. You would not BELIEVE the amount of woo in our profession nowdays! I just paid $375 for a conference and several of the classes (mixed MD/RN) were promoting woo, and Gideon was giving away their bibles in the convention room. I did NOT want to engage them, as I am not out of the 'closet' at work!

Hi Kate! I'm about to start on my nursing degree. Nice to meet another nurse-to-be!

I was so glad to find this group! I am a second year Nursing Student surrounded by theists. This doesn't bother me much, but I find myself craving some balance.

My guess is that when one of the wives of these damn hypocrites gets a fistula, especially one beyond surgical repair, he will say "I'm just not that into you!" and move on to his next victim!

I don’t know about you but when I do a pelvic on a female bible thumper I do it with both my hands on her knees. What a bunch of ignorant dumabass MoFo’s. You know, if everything is “in god’s hands” or is “god’s will” ,don’t even come to my ER. There are plenty of sane sick people that I can help.

JSH, you have got to be fucking kidding me!!! What if the only specialist for her particular deadly complication is a male OB? He thinks SO LITTLE of his wife/child that he is willing to LET THEM DIE!! Will he do the same for himself if he finds himself in the ICU?? The ratio of male to female OBs is probably something in the neighborhood of 8:2, the ratio in the ICU (if he is lucky) is 2:8, and on the general ward 1:9 or 0.5:9.5. What's good for the goose goes double for the gander! Or he is a damn hypocrite. He is still a misogynous asshole.

Once we were in the middle of coding a kid and a woman walked up and started to wave her hands over the bedside, the doctor said " who the hell are you?" She said "I'm summoning help from the spirit world!" Of course the doctor yelled "get her the fuck out of here!!!".

Hi! I am glad to see this group exists. I have been trying to advance the Atheist acceptability abroad at St. George's University where I am getting my medical degree. Even in an international school with many cultures represented, Indian, Asian, Caribbean, African, and the already diverse American, we have God in our Hippocratic Oath and my efforts to change this has of course gotten me nowhere. Maybe one day the world will beat my bleeding heart out but not today. :)
