Computers need thinkers

to design the programs that do the computations in research! Someone needs to know math in order to design the programs.

I do not agree with the way math is taught but it does teach something about how to think analytically and come to conclusions. I would hate to see a researcher in science who relies only on a machine.

Seems like your opinion is extreme. Both sides of the brain are needed right side imagination, and left side analytical. A scientist who cannot deal with formulas is crippled and dependent on a machine programmed by someone else. And if the world as we know it ends and there are no machines...
