God vs The Doctor

The things that people want you to do.
One of the most pernicious trends of our time has been the creeping Christianization of medical services and access to medical services. It's started creeping up into Canada and the UK.
So here's just another article that goes from the ridiculous to the ridiculous.
Americans choose God over doctors for saving lives | Otago Daily Times Online
When it comes to saving lives, God trumps doctors for many Americans.

An eye-opening survey reveals widespread belief that divine intervention can revive dying patients. And, researchers said, doctors "need to be prepared to deal with families who are waiting for a miracle."
When asked to imagine their own relatives being gravely ill or injured, nearly 20% of doctors and other medical workers said God could reverse a hopeless outcome.

It's hard to say much to the common person if nearly 1/5 DOCTORS is willing to wait for God.
"You can't say, 'That's nonsense.' You have to respect that" and try to show them X-rays, CAT scans and other medical evidence indicating death is imminent, he said.
Yes, actually you can. Watch: That's nonsense. I don't respect it.
