And now we have Grey's Anatomy...
That in the way itís almost impossible to separate the history of religion from the history of science
Brilliant observation, Mr. Mudede. Something to ponder.
It may have been crude but at least they were diving into science.
Itís almost impossible to separate the history of religion from the history of anything. Art, architecture, literature, government... just about everything was related to religion in some way.
And these same people(well their blood family you know, the ones that were not scientists) had the nerve to label the Inca, The Mayans, and the Aztecs savages. Yes,they were andvancing science, but when does that very painful experiment stop on the living.
Knowing enough is Knowing enough, thats science. No need to
Doing it because they get a thrill out of it is sick, twisted and religous. I sure wouldn't wish that on anybody, what they did back in those days.
Thank god for the future to come along.
There are surgery shows on television, here in the future.
Are we sure the guy on the table in the second etching is supposed to be dead?
#7 thats what I was thinking. How do we know? either that or I read to many horror and sci-fi novels.
i like this logic but in a way charles' inference is using circular reasoning, which we all know is a fallacy.
Are they making people soup in that little cauldron there. I say witchcraft.
And what about the birth of Anatomy Musical? Would you say that's "Sweeney Todd"?
"Indeed, itís far better to be a living dog than a dead man."
Unless you live with Descartes.
I think some dogs have it a lot better than some living humans.
if you enjoy thinking about 17th century anatomy theaters, then i highly recommend the book "stiff: the curious life of human cadavers." pretty interesting stuff.
@11- Sweeney Todd is not comparable- it's about the character more than his bloody acts.
I'd probably say something similar of today's medical dramas- they tend to be a little better written- with their dose of surgical voyeurism.
CSI might be more up that alley- all pseudoscience and no plot.
