  • No! I'm so mad I missed that epi!!!!....................The doctors have no idea how he survived.................all they could say was it was his sheer will to survive that helped him. They have NO IDEA how he could have survived with NO brain damage. The doctors aren't taking credit for it. So what else do you have anon 1217

  • When the survival rate is less than 90%, it's still higher than 0%. That's how I explain that the vast majority of people simply do not understand statistical analysis.

    It's easy to baffle doctors. Medicine remains in its infancy, and it is much more an art than a science even today with all the high tech gadgetry and big paycheques.

    For example:

    While diligently taking the birth control pill as directed, 6 women in every 1000 (that is .06% of all those who take it) will become pregnant anyhow. There are a variety of reasons for that (ranging from too low a dosage for their bodies to conflicting drugs or chemicals in their bodies) none of them that require anything miraculous to happen. When a woman becomes pregnant while on the Pill, she just goes into the .06% bundle (which is a very large number of people once there are 18 million people taking the drug), not the Virgin Birth set.
