  10. A little surprised at this flak...I've done my homework guys... Why even bother with EMS? I guess a fair question, but truth be told, EMS is where I discovered my love for medicine and I do love what I do. Plus it does pay some small pittance and I could use the cash and the job. As far as the bachelors degree and pre-med requirements go, there is no pre-med major, you simply add those classes in to whatever you're already doing. You are encouraged to study "what you love." Many people go the biology route because much of the pre-med coursework applies directly to that degree. The o
  11. I'm aiming at medical school, or at least PA school, so I don't see extra medical education as wasted. The medic would allow me a bachelor of emergency medicine which would set me apart from the crowd. Also, I'm working quite a bit already so I feel like I owe it to my patients not to be that EMT who decided they knew enough. Thanks for the advice! I was already planning on taking A&P and now I'm even more excited. Still though, any recommendations on a medic book?
  12. So...I disappeared from the site a little while ago after a certain thread aggravated me to no end. I come to you all now purely as an EMS provider who recognizes all this site has to offer. I'm strongly considering taking my medic next year (when it is offered again and after I've had time to complete the rest of the pre-reqs). It would put me in college probably an extra year, however, and sadly long term EMS is not an option for me (back injury). Thusly I am conflicted about it. What I am not conflicted about is my search for more knowledge. I am currently an NREMTI, but I feel wo
  13. Yes. Yes. Yes. I am a college student myself. I work a 48 hour shift nearly every weekend to pick up some extra cash. That being said, I wouldn't look into EMS for riches. It sounds like a surefire thing on at least two of your points, and probably/hopefully all three. I say go for it.
  14. And then, if you really wish to stop looking silly, take a look at some of the actual 'science' supporting your dearly held ideal...I'd love to talk to you about it after. I read the links you posted. The link from the Heartland Institute is little more than a statement of a viewpoint. It contains no more evidence than my initial post on this matter. The link from the telegraph was slightly more scientific, but was still an opinion piece. Some of the points are valid and worth discussing nonetheless. I like how you took away my science card as if I'm a complete idiot. I'm not one
  15. Perhaps I was a bit vitriolic, and for that, I apologize. I can see where you would think it arrogant to assume we have such control over the biosphere, but, in reality, we do. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7f/Oldgrowth3.jpg http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/editorials/archives/2010/05/15/2003472977 http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=34779&Cr=Biodiversity&Cr1= I'm sure the link from the UN will be popular. http://www.planbureauvoordeleefomgeving.nl/images/development%20of%20world%20biodiversity_tcm61-38885.jpg http://www.learner.org/co
