I, for one, am very glad that the "debauchery of the medical profession and their minions" were around not too long ago to save my 3-year-old little girl from dying of dehydration.

I am quite happy that the "sorcerers" saved my sister from acute, sudden appendicitis this past summer.

I suppose the oddball who authored the original post would blame scientists, mathematicians, and engineers for all the other evils in this world.

The irony would be that the troll would likely still visit the ER when his/her children get sick (due to lack of vaccination) and, due to lack of proper financial arrangements (health insurance), foist the cost of his idiocy upon others.

GOOD GRIEF! How I wished there had been a vaccine against whooping cough when I was a child and I not had that awful sickness....and how I wish my friends that had polio before the vaccine had had such protection..and escaped the crippling and pain.

The map showed the outbreaks along the Eastern Seaboard from Florida up to New England. Texas and Nebraska had some additional outbreaks as well.

Hey! How are you doing? I just got around to reading through this thread... I see the original poster has been banned/suspended. He claimed that only 2 people have died from MRSA! 19,000 died in the U.S. in 2005 alone! It is now considered worse than AIDS, SARS or the Bird Flu as a threat.

So when can I get that Cajun dinner? LOL!

No one’s poo-pooing anyone’s grief over anything—especially a huge loss like a treasured mother!

What color is the sky in your world?

I have a significant list of folks who’ve profited greatly from Pastor Wright’s works and ministry . . . including myself. Rock throwing seems to be adding yet another potent pastor, it appears.

If it 'works' it must be true huh? Pragmatist at heart, aren't ya?

I guess I wouldn't consider Wright 'potent.' Any more than Satan is 'potent.' By default then you are throwing rocks at Tommydale and me, your fellow believers! For shame.

In the interest of being proactive:

prag·ma·tism      /ˈprægməˌtɪzəm/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[prag-muh-tiz-uhm] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation

–noun
1. character or conduct that emphasizes practicality.
2. a philosophical movement or system having various forms, but generally stressing practical consequences as constituting the essential criterion in determining meaning, truth, or value.

I seem to recall Hegel's though gave birth to pragmatism.

http://gyral.blackshell.com/hegel/

Hegel's influence on the thought of Karl Marx can not be ignored. Marx borrowed Hegel's dialectic, dropped the idealism, threw in a healthy measure of materialism, and called himself a communist. No Marxist or materialistic historian can ignore Hegel's dialectic and his interpretation of world history. Ironically, though Hegel's thought was generally regarded as a powerful attack on materialism, his greatest student eventually became the Western world's most famous materialist.

Hegel's thought had other important effects, even in America, the land where British empiricism planted its flag on firmest ground. For instance, Hegel's thought opened the path towards pragmatism, progressivism, and relativism. William James borrowed heavily from the work of the German idealists to construct an American intellectual tradition that he labelled "Pragmatism" (not to be confused with either pragmatism nor Charles Peirce's "Pragmaticism"). John Dewey began his ever-evolving philosophical career as a Hegelian, and other Progressives were especially influenced by Hegel's emphasis on the training of the mind through education. Finally, Hegel's emphasis on the individual and even the Absolute as a constantly evolving process, continually subjected to the influence of external as well as internal forces, became a starting poing for relativism.

Hegel's thought was also crucial in sparking a revolution in American educational policy. The "Kindergarten Movement" and John Dewey's Democracy and Education are only two examples of the accomplishments American Hegelians made in the field of education.

Thus, Hegel's influence in America has been overwhelming, although we often lose sight of his original, though admittedly peculiar, philosophy. Although students of Hegel often complain of his lengthy digressions into incomprehensiblity, his thought has played a major role in how we study history. Hegel's dialectic was a major influence behind Marx's influential brand of socialism. Without Hegel, pragmatism, progressivism, and relativism may never have become popular philosophical systems. Hegel's emphasis on the mind and the need for human interaction in order to achieve true "selfhood" led to a revolution in American educational policy.

Hegel was so potent! Just...Wow!

I was looking at replies to the originating troll.
They’d already ailed that guy.
Ailed?
Umm.. nailed.

Yes, sparks and induced flourescence do make wonderful colors.

> I got to spend 8 additional days in the hospital getting twice daily an I.V. with an antibiotic so caustic that each time it was administered it would destroy the vein. It felt like battery acid eating away at me for twenty minutes twice a day. It did however save my life and for that I only hate Doctors a little.

I had a similar experience with an incision that went septic 3 weeks after a knee surgery. Was the antibiotic Flucloxacillin? Felt like gasoline being poured into your vein, even after they diluted it with saline?

I walked around with a hole in my leg the size of a golfball for nearly six months, an open wound that needed to heal from the inside-out. Lucky to have kept my leg.

(Private medicine paid for the original knee operation. Social medicine paid for the subsequent infection treatment that saved my leg — but that’s a whole different debate.)
