Stop calling medical marvels “miracles”
A fan sent me a picture of this poster he found at a local Hospital in Britain. It states “[t]he miracle of cornea transplantation can help restore sight”. Miracle? That shit drives me crazy. Cornea transplants are medical marvels, made possible only because of our ever growing understanding of the human body. If it was a damn miracle, you’d be able to do the operation with a fucking toothpick and a communion wafer.
I’m sick and tired of this type of nomenclature when it comes to serious medical science. Can we start admitting this is all because of the continued progress of science and not the supernatural, people?
