Too bad this is not about Michael Collins and the Easter Rising of 1916...

He (Francis Collins) always struck me as a competent and diligent scientist. I never knew about his religious views, and frankly, didn't care. I still don't.

So who is Collins?

Francis collins.
Head of the national institute of health in the USA and a seminal figure in the human genome project.

Oh.

Yeah.

And he's also a devout Christian, as if the NIH or the human genome project gave a shit about that. 🤪
