Well Ozzy I think some Christan's are morons too. Blind faith is stupid in my opinion. Some beliefs are idiotic to say the least.
From the Webster dictionary.
I was using it like the second definition meaning. I believe to follow something on blind faith is stupid in these days and times. I can understand it back thousands of years ago when no one knew any better, but in these times it is a different story. There are many things that pertained to then and do not apply now, but people do not know how to let things go. The blood issue just cracks me up. Also from what I was told by the Doctors and people that work with the JW. They seem to think the blood is bad if it leaves the closed system of the body. Not because of disease. That is my understanding, and the only reason they allow the use of the heart lung machine is because it is an extension of the bodies closed loop circulation.1 usually offensive : a mildly mentally retarded person
2 : a very stupid person
Again I will say. What do I know I am just a confrontational Tard today.
Andrew yes you can go and donate blood for yourself before surgery. When you do that they let you donate a little more frequently than you would if donating for a good cause like I do. Of course this only works if the surgery is planned and not an emergency.
