A scientist is religious. The media tells us that the scientist is religious.
A scientist is not religious. The media doesn’t tell us that the scientist is not religious.
Then millions of idiots jump around the world with joy and tell everyone that scientists believe in god, it means god exists.
Today’s BBC news: Joseph Murray, US organ transplant pioneer, died today.
Working at Boston’s Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, he and colleagues managed to successfully transplant kidneys on dogs.
In 1954, using the new surgical techniques, he took the healthy kidney of 23-year-old Ronald Herrick and transplanted it into his identical twin, Richard, who had kidney failure. Richard lived another eight years.
In 1962, with the arrival of drugs to suppress the immune response, he completed the first successful organ transplant from an unrelated donor.
Dr Murray shared the 1990 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Dr E Donnall Thomas, a pioneer in bone marrow transplants.
And then comes subheadline: Deeply religious
Dr Murray was a deeply religious man. He told the Harvard University Gazette in 2001: “Work is a prayer. And I start off every morning dedicating it to our Creator.”
Because of media, people know which physicists, philosophers, politicians, poets, painters, Nobel prize winners are religious. They do not know who are atheists. Most people have no idea that most scientists are atheists, they do not believe that god exists.
