Woman describes hearing sound for the first time at age 40. I remember back in the 90's when they first pioneered those devices. There was a great episode of Nova about the first person who received the implant.
I can't wait until an implant allows for greater sensitivity than our natural organ. Can you imagine getting artificial ears and eyes? Seeing new colors, hearing new sounds? These thoughts make me happy.
Also, science > Jesus. Science actually does the miracles claimed in the bible.
