Stem Cells and Theistic Choices - Correction

Last year on the 7th of July I published a blog post called "Stem Cells and Theistic Choice". Now while I believe the argument still holds regarding theists making bad medical decisions based on their holy book. It is my obligation to report that the two male patients that have received the stem cells transplants have had their HIV return.

In contrast the Germany patient who received similar treatment is still HIV free. This shows we still have a long way to go to find a cure for this disease.

Also to note, this news comes on the heals of the Mississippi Baby case who was cured, then its parents stopped anti-retroviral treatment against doctors orders and it relapsed. The reason why the parents stopped treatment is not known.
