>>7764132 If you want the short answer: autism. And not the buzzword kind that's thrown around all over 4chan, I mean actual Aspergers that at least of half of the posters on this board suffer from.
If you want the longer version: Biology because it's too far removed (i.e. derived) from math (pic related). Physics is applied math, chemistry is applied physics, molecular biology is applied chemistry, etc etc. So anything past pure math (300k starting any job I want) is automatically shit, basically.
Animosity towards medicine, however, is due to jealousy, as doctors know 1/10th the math yet make (at least) triple the money. Same reason /sci/ hates computer science.
>>7764132 It doesn't. If 20% of people in a country loudly scream that they hate x, would you ask why the country hates x? The people who bitch about biology,cs,med etc. are just a butthurt minority who attempt to establish superiority by impressive demonstrations of autism. If most of /sci/ truly hated these subjects, we would not often get threads relevant to the subjects, which is currently not the case.
>>7764292 Because they can't do it anywhere else. This kind of autism is laughed upon in serious academia, so they are only left with internet forums to materialize their frustration. They have great aspirations but know they will never be great themselves, they want to be alpha but know they never will, so all that is left is cursing everyone else citing their autism as proof of greatness. Similar phenomena include high school alpha males dogging on nerdy guys, but both instances are at least equally annoying.
>>7764132 It's not the field of study so much as the students. You can do some hard core shit if you go deep enough down the rabbit hole in these majors, but the vast majority of biology/med students don't.
Most students get into these fields because they're not spergs and want a degree that's relatively easy (not counting actual med school), interesting, and has decent job opportunities.
/sci/ hates them because a lot of these students want to join the dick waving club of STEM, when their undergrad degree programs are objectively less mathematically or scientifically rigorous than most other STEM fields. Also it seems like a lot of them are into pop-sci, which /sci/ hates to no end.
