Conservatives degrade, debase and insult the Holy Bible by insisting that Creationism be taught in public school science classes alongside the Theory of Evolution (which, after all, is only a theory) -- while omitting other, equally important sections of the Bible.
How offensive to God are these vain creatures of Kansas by not insisting that the Holy Bible also be studied in medical school.
As important as Creationism might be, how can it possibly compare to the following indispensable dermatological treatments which should by Divine Right be taught today in every American medical school.
Do you want real health care reform? How about Biblical Dermatology? Here it is:
Infections on the Skin
13:1 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron: 13:2 “When someone has1 a swelling2 or a scab3 or a bright spot4 on the skin of his body5 that may become a diseased infection,6 he must be brought to Aaron the priest or one of his sons, the priests.7 13:3 The priest must then examine the infection8 on the skin of the body, and if the hair9 in the infection has turned white and the infection appears to be deeper than the skin of the body,10 then it is a diseased infection,11 so when the priest examines it12he must pronounce the person unclean.13
A Bright Spot on the Skin
13:4 “If14 it is a white bright spot on the skin of his body, but it does not appear to be deeper than the skin,15 and the hair has not turned white, then the priest is to quarantine the person with the infection for seven days.16 13:5 The priest must then examine it on the seventh day, and if,17 as far as he can see, the infection has stayed the same18 and has not spread on the skin,19 then the priest is to quarantine the person for another seven days.20 13:6 The priest must then examine it again on the seventh day,21 and if22 the infection has faded and has not spread on the skin, then the priest is to pronounce the person clean.23 It is a scab,24 so he must wash his clothes25 and be clean. 13:7 If, however, the scab is spreading further26 on the skin after he has shown himself to the priest for his purification, then he must show himself to the priest a second time. 13:8 The priest must then examine it,27 and if28 the scab has spread on the skin, then the priest is to pronounce the person unclean.29 It is a disease.
A Swelling on the Skin
13:9 “When someone has a diseased infection,30 he must be brought to the priest. 13:10 The priest will then examine it,31 and if32 a white swelling is on the skin, it has turned the hair white, and there is raw flesh in the swelling,33 13:11 it is a chronic34 disease on the skin of his body,35 so the priest is to pronounce him unclean.36 The priest37 must not merely quarantine him, for he is unclean.3813:12 If, however, the disease breaks out39 on the skin so that the disease covers all the skin of the person with the infection40 from his head to his feet, as far as the priest can see,41 13:13 the priest must then examine it,42 and if43 the disease covers his whole body, he is to pronounce the person with the infection clean.44 He has turned all white, so he is clean.45 13:14 But whenever raw flesh appears in it46 he will be unclean, 13:15 so the priest is to examine the raw flesh47 and pronounce him unclean48 – it is diseased. 13:16 If, however,49 the raw flesh once again turns white,50 then he must come to the priest. 13:17 The priest will then examine it,51 and if52 the infection has turned white, the priest is to pronounce the person with the infection clean53 – he is clean.
A Boil on the Skin
13:18 “When someone’s body has a boil on its skin54 and it heals, 13:19 and in the place of the boil there is a white swelling or a reddish white bright spot, he must show himself to the priest.55 13:20The priest will then examine it,56 and if57 it appears to be deeper than the skin58 and its hair has turned white, then the priest is to pronounce the person unclean.59 It is a diseased infection that has broken out in the boil.60 13:21 If, however,61 the priest examines it, and62 there is no white hair in it, it is not deeper than the skin, and it has faded, then the priest is to quarantine him for seven days.63 13:22 If64it is spreading further65 on the skin, then the priest is to pronounce him unclean.66 It is an infection.13:23 But if the bright spot stays in its place and has not spread,67 it is the scar of the boil, so the priest is to pronounce him clean.68
A Burn on the Skin
13:24 “When a body has a burn on its skin69 and the raw area of the burn becomes a reddish white or white bright spot, 13:25 the priest must examine it,70 and if71 the hair has turned white in the bright spot and it appears to be deeper than the skin,72 it is a disease that has broken out in the burn.73 The priest is to pronounce the person unclean.74 It is a diseased infection.75 13:26 If, however,76 the priest examines it and77 there is no white hair in the bright spot, it is not deeper than the skin,78 and it has faded, then the priest is to quarantine him for seven days.79 13:27 The priest must then examine it on the seventh day, and if it is spreading further80 on the skin, then the priest is to pronounce him unclean. It is a diseased infection.81 13:28 But if the bright spot stays in its place, has not spread on the skin,82 and it has faded, then it is the swelling of the burn, so the priest is to pronounce him clean,83 because it is the scar of the burn.
Scall on the Head or in the Beard
13:29 “When a man or a woman has an infection on the head or in the beard,84 13:30 the priest is to examine the infection,85 and if86 it appears to be deeper than the skin87 and the hair in it is reddish yellow and thin, then the priest is to pronounce the person unclean.88 It is scall,89 a disease of the head or the beard.90 13:31 But if the priest examines the scall infection and it does not appear to be deeper than the skin,91 and there is no black hair in it, then the priest is to quarantine the person with the scall infection for seven days.92 13:32 The priest must then examine the infection on the seventh day, and if93 the scall has not spread, there is no reddish yellow hair in it, and the scall does not appear to be deeper than the skin,94 13:33 then the individual is to shave himself,95 but he must not shave the area affected by the scall,96 and the priest is to quarantine the person with the scall for another seven days.97 13:34 The priest must then examine the scall on the seventh day, and if98 the scall has not spread on the skin and it does not appear to be deeper than the skin,99 then the priest is to pronounce him clean.100 So he is to wash his clothes and be clean. 13:35 If, however, the scall spreads further101 on the skin after his purification, 13:36 then the priest is to examine it, and if102 the scall has spread on the skin the priest is not to search further for reddish yellow hair.103 The person104is unclean. 13:37 If, as far as the priest can see, the scall has stayed the same105 and black hair has sprouted in it, the scall has been healed; the person is clean. So the priest is to pronounce him clean.106
Bright White Spots on the Skin
13:38 “When a man or a woman has bright spots – white bright spots – on the skin of their body,13:39 the priest is to examine them,107 and if108 the bright spots on the skin of their body are faded white, it is a harmless rash that has broken out on the skin. The person is clean.109
Baldness on the Head
13:40 “When a man’s head is bare so that he is balding in back,110 he is clean. 13:41 If his head is bare on the forehead111 so that he is balding in front,112 he is clean. 13:42 But if there is a reddish white infection in the back or front bald area, it is a disease breaking out in his back or front bald area.13:43 The priest is to examine it,113 and if114 the swelling of the infection is reddish white in the back or front bald area like the appearance of a disease on the skin of the body,115 13:44 he is a diseased man. He is unclean. The priest must surely pronounce him unclean because of his infection on his head.116
The Life of the Person with Skin Disease
13:45 “As for the diseased person who has the infection,117 his clothes must be torn, the hair of his head must be unbound, he must cover his mustache,118 and he must call out ‘Unclean! Unclean!’13:46 The whole time he has the infection119 he will be continually unclean. He must live in isolation, and his place of residence must be outside the camp.
As you can see, I always wanted my son to be a doctor.
