this is progress?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 08, 2007

Both of the following statements are true. Which is more remarkable?

1) Doctors in Argentina have announced that the human race is divided into two sexes: male and female.

2) Their findings are regarded as controversial.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I shared this with my class of High School English learners as a critical thinking exercise. They all said, "What?!" and/or "Of course!" Come to Him as children? It all makes sense now.

    Are the smiles and apparent laughter on the part of those in the pic because of their outlandish attire?

    Sounds like that America magazine that had as its headline (you better sit down for this shocker!), the brains of men and women are different. Hey, not to worry! It only took a few hundred thousand of our tax dollars to fund this revolutionary research! Next they'll be telling us that sex results in babies! My! What will they come up with next?

    No 1. I suppose that there is not APA in Argentina. The fact that theology and science could say the same thing clearly is not remarkable, but the human will to stand above the bruhaha of human secularism is, and to do it with humans so closely aligned to science for their everyday existence is. Now if they could believe and espouse life's beginning at conception, that would be truly remaqrkable.

    No. 1 is more remarkable. Do you suppose for one moment that you could find a group of doctors, or even a single doctor, in the United States or western Europe to make that statement?
