900 deaths a day! I hadn't realised it was that much. Amazing that he was president for 9 years if that was a case, because it's the sort of thing you'd think would be noticed and shown as proof they were wrong. But I know that there are other factors at work over there.

In a lot of the Western World, HIV/AIDS is still considered to be a "gay disease" by a heteronormative public. But elsewhere it's just a sexual contagion, relying primarily on bad sexual and drug use practice, and poor screening of blood donation. I think it speaks volumes that the philosopher Foucault died of an AIDS related problem, while denying that such existed!

But also I think that faith vs science is a false dichotomy. I'm a pagan, but that contradict my following and understanding the the process of science. It's not an either/or situation, but folk confuse "truth" - an emotional validation of a concept - with facts and evidence.
