“Chapel Perilous, that vortex where cosmological speculations, coincidences, and paranoia seem to multiply and then collapse, compelling belief or lunacy, wisdom or agnosticism.” ~Robert Anton Wilson

    The Church of Medicine

    Had a good conversation about this today and felt inspired to pool some resources on the topic. I have worked in health care for quite a few years, and have found that people DO worship the gods of medicine, certainly above nature. These articles and books would suggest that people have transferred their religious tendencies away from organized religion and toward those high and mighty men in white coats...what do you think? Is the white lab coat really a priestly robe?
