There are higher priorities in the universe than one's own life, don't you think?
Faith is better than medicine and far more effective. Science cannot help solve everything Faith can.
Make as many medical discoveries as you want, but why allow the world to suffer and keep from supplying those most in need from medicine? Science is getting almost hypocritical in the purpose by which it exists. Neither Faith nor religion created the atom bomb; science did, and yet, modern technology is seen as some sort of "savior" of mankind's problems. People are still suffering, and they suffer far more where most needed while in first-world countries, well, why would they even want to care? It's like scientific research and medicine is only for high-society; medicine only for the rich.
Consider that. If people cannot afford an appropriate way to access medicine, what else do they have to look to?
Also, blood transfusions are like turning human beings in self-righteous, desperate Frankenstein monsters. Why extend life a 5, 10, 25, or even 50 years when higher priorities reap greater, everlasting benefits? Maybe medicine focuses on the short term benefits, not the long.
Science is getting at the worst in human beings' value of themselves and the world.
