Merry Christmas to you too, George.
If you choose to see the modern developments in
medicine as a form of unholy worship, then perhaps
you might not want to engage in them.

Oh come off of it. I have significant disagreements with Nancy on this,
but your initial post on "writing worship" or whatever was absurd, and
no analogy in response to it could be criticized. You said, "humanity
got along for millenia without X." Nancy said, "humanity got along for
millenia without Y." Exact parallel. Stop being a quibbling fool.
