Once, about forty years ago, one of my kids was hit on the head by a car. She was taken immediately to the local ER.
I flagged down a cruiser to follow. Even in those days, one could get immediate updates by cruiserphone (… so far okay … so far okay … um, check with medical resident … )
So the cops and I rushed through the ER doors.
It wasn’t hard to find her; I could hear her screaming from four emergency rooms away.
Later, a medical attendant told me to carry her upstairs to paediatrics.
She was still screaming and screaming. But after all, she had been hit by a car.
Now, of five possible things the attending physician didn’t “believe in,” what would a reasonable person think should be of least concern to a parent?
1. What people choose to do matters (not all just “fate”)
2. Children matter more than cockroaches
3. Science-based medicine
4. Sterile procedure
5. “Evolution” – Darwin’s theory or any other
Reader, if you have kids, I sure hope you got this one right.
Apparently, most US doctors don’t “accept” evolution (Darwinism). Should they lose their licences?
