A Quote That Makes Me Sick

Strange Creature Immune to Pain

Researcher Gary Lewin, a neuroscientist at the Max Delbrück Institute for Molecular Medicine in Germany, noted, “People may say, ‘So what — it’s weird, but what has it to do with human pain?’ I think that is wrong, unimaginative and short sighted.”

This is how far the average “intelligence” has fallen — that he would even have to spell out something as obvious as that is sickening to me.

Recently I had the misfortune to be in the proximity of someone who was talking about how bad she was in the subject of science. There is no shame in that. But the response she was given by the person she was talking to was: “They give you that to make you feel stupid so you can be put in your place.”
