Medical Science Versus Religion?

In another odd and peculiar story on CNN, we see the media once again trying to draw a distinction between medical science and faith that does not really exist.

Perhaps most disturbing is the quote

"Sise, a Catholic doctor working in a Catholic hospital, said miracles don't happen when medical evidence shows death is near.

"That's just not a realistic situation," he said."

First of all, I agree with the premise that doctors should lay the scientific cards on the table and tell family when something is very, very unlikely. But, to say that miracles don't happen AT ALL? That's obviously not true. Check out this story for instance. I'm kind of disturbed that a "Catholic doctor" said this.
