Thank goodness for Dennett

Prof. Daniel Dennett is a noted atheist and author.  Someone forwarded me this link, which is Dennett's reflection after having major surgery.  He spends some time talking about the people who helped him get through an often fatal emergency.  He does a lot of thanking, but he only thanks people who really exist.   

All snark aside, it's a moving tribute to everybody who makes health care possible.

And, because he's Daniel Dennett, the rest of the article is a excellent reflection on the place of science, and the issue of 'faith' in medicine.

Enough from me, go read it:

Oh, and be sure to vote!
