Don't trust him just because he's a doctor

The tabloid newspapers have been throwing their arms up in horror that doctors - those nice medical people - were amongst the plotters, planners and would-be suicide bombers that attempted to attack London and Glasgow at the weekend.

However, as was coincidentally noted in the Bad Science column on Saturday, doctors do not have a stain free reputation as a profession.

Doctors had been active participants in the Nazi project, and joined Hitler's National Socialist party in greater numbers than any other profession

We need to remember that education doesn't automatically make people decent and rational. Even more, we need to remember that applies to us as well.
