"You cannot be a doctor if you believe in superstitions," said by my Catholic professor.
Basically, it was just another ordinary day at med school. I was taking up some psychology classes and stuff like that. Now, this professor is a clinical psychologist. Alright, I respect him for that. Before we begin our class, he'd begin with a prayer (to which I just silently stand as others join).
I didn't mind the prayer. It's ok. Though I had forgotten the exact topic we were in, it was these words that struck me and the only thing I remembered throughout the day.
You will all be doctors someday. Superstitions are not part of a doctor's mind. You cannot be a doctor if you believe in superstition because it is irrational to believe in something unrealistic.
Right. You have a point there, but is religion sort of a superstition? That was the question I would like to ask, but it is not my place to debate. It's time to be silent for a while.
