TIME 100: Only Two Medical Nominees in the 100 Most Influential People in the World

TIME magazine released the list of the 100 most influential people in the world and there are only two medical nominees. Is medicine really that insignificant compared to music or sports?

  1. A point worth thinking about.

  2. I saw this. Only 6 scientists in total? Sad times.

  3. It troubles me that apparently only two folks from the world of medicine qualify for Time’s “most influential” list, yet so many people who literally play make believe for a living are revered and idolized as if they actually do something meaningful beyond distract us temporarily from reality (not sure exactly how many of the 100 are from the entertainment industry but I am confident many more than two). There is no hope for our society if we think Daniel Day Lewis or Jennifer Lawrence are genuinely contributing anything meaningful to the advancement of mankind as a species, which should be the true measure of influence.
