In his article, the author explains that religion is all about the Bible and the Bible primarily focuses on the explanation of the origin of the world. He puts forth the point that this concept is far different from what science is and that they do not complement each other. This essay intends to prove that religion and science can work together with no issues.
According to the article “Created Equal”, Milton and Rose Friedman discusse three different ways that are considered to be equal. It includes equality before God, equality of opportunity and equality of outcome. They also believe that the “freedom preserves the opportunity for today’s disadvantaged to become tomorrow’s privileged in the process, enable almost everyone, from top to bottom, to enjoy a fuller and richer life.” Finally, Friedmans conclude that a society that puts equality before freedom will get neither, and those that put freedom before equality will get a high degree of both. From my point of view, I do agree with Friedmans that equality of outcome is in clear conflict with liberty which government gets more power and getting bigger.

While the doctors in Italy are fighting for a better system, America is experiencing a shortage of doctors and nurses (“13.4 Problems of Healthcare in the United States” np). This is a major problem because physicians are needed to help the patients and if there are not enough physicians, then who will care for the patients in dire need of medical help? One of the main factors contributing to a shortage of doctors and nurses is that emergency rooms, where the majority of patients come to for help, are understaffed (“13.4 Problems of Healthcare in the United States” np). The reason behind this lack of medical professionals is due to the fact that they too are being underpaid which leads them to not want to volunteer for difficult work when they are not receiving enough pay (“13.4 Problems of Healthcare in the United States” np). If America was to begin paying doctors more than maybe more would volunteer to help out in emergency rooms, which unquestionably require an immense amount of medical professionals to treat emergent illnesses.
