[quote]Most doctors are nothing but indoctrinated clergy serving a church. They also often push products and preach bullshit. Dentists are the same. These are the people that pushed regular circumcision for “hygiene”, ingesting fluoride tablets for teeth health (I can attest to this personally), restricting fat from our diet, etc. They don’t look at facts or statistics and certainly lack the critical thinking to see that many prescribed doctrinal treatments either don’t work or have better alternatives.
Orthodontists and surgeons are the exception.
Interesting comment I came across. True to a far larger extent than most realise. Most “experts” are just fudging their way through, especially in “soft” sciences. The “soft” sciences usually pertain to highly complex systems, e.g. the human body, human society, human mind, etc., and even the best experts often only manage to rely on woefully inadequate analogies / models. Some systems are just way too complex for any human mind to adequately study within a short human lifespan.
Practical example: two doctors will often give different diagnoses / recommendations, because (1) at least one doctor is incompetent, or (2) the disease is too unusual / complex. But they want to look good and take your money, so they’ll pretend to be more sure than they really are.
Similarly, ask two different religious teachers on any important religious issue, and they’d often give two very different answers, assuming they are not indoctrinated by the same cult. They will also usually act like they perfectly understand what they are talking about, when they really don’t. They’re usually (whether consciously or otherwise) just after your approval / support / money.
