Creationism is taught in schools as scientific theory while non-religious views still need to be voiced and respected in them. Assisted dying is deemed a no-go area and only the religious bodies can attend remembrance ceremonies at the Cenotaph in Westminster; humanism is excluded.
As a British Humanist funeral officiant I was asked to be a hospital visitor to people who are not religious but want someone to talk to.
A local priest who I had never met rang me up to tell me that although he was obliged to have me on his list, I could be certain that he would personally see to it that I was never requested. You say that creationism is taught as a scientific theory in the schools? I find that a bit hard to believe. Those of you who are very disappointed and disgusted by this sacking want to do something, may I suggest that like me you write to the head of Cochrane and his fellow board members — esp.
Cochrane has gone beyond a ship taking on water, more like a sunken wreck. Sad and disappointing that Criminal Pharma has won this round. However a book with this titel is also written by a journalist of science, Robert Whitaker and a great book which scrutinizes the treatment of psychotic patients since early history and the reading of which i certainly scary. I surely recommend the reading of the book.
Care dependency and cognitive impairment are also expected to have a restricting influence on the selection of activities, e. The Bill Room is updated weekly. Irrespective of the different theoretical models, the activities offered were very similar. President Obama made a powerful point when he said we would not accept just a percentage of people with cancer or diabetes receiving treatment, and we should not accept the disparity for individuals with behavioral health disorders," Dr. Brenner is renowned for his hotspotting project and achieving significant savings in healthcare costs by focusing on the highest users of hospital care in Camden. Currently, the directory includes collection sites in 50 states, including New Jersey. For all studies, we assessed the risk of selection bias, performance bias, attrition bias and detection bias.
I agree. I think that psychiatry that primarily medicates without talk therapy and cognitive behavioral modifications does mostly harm and not much good. I surely read that book too — very revealing about the Big Pharma corruption of psychiatry.

Yes, I saw the same thing with a family member: years of SSRIs, then bipolar diagnosis and electroshocks, all ending very tragically. As a GP in mid sixties , used to relying on Cochrane for unbiased open evaluation amid an increasingly difficult and biased platter of medical and health information , this is disturbing news. Thanks for alerting me Malcolm.
You may think me the fuddiest of duddies, but I would automatically be suspicious when a hired hand at the Cochrane Collaboration wants to be styled CEO. Anyway, to more concrete matters — who the devil can think that a five minute, heavily badgered inquisition is a sensible way to pursue your personnel policies? They are a product of technological advances in society bound up with influ7nces firmly;y rooted in the attributes of fiat currency.
This excludes some people from the justifiable economy. That exclusion needed be a problem if only we could all take the benefits of advance back in time and back in kind. But unfortunately we all rely upon fiat currency money to mediate our dealings of time spent and effort expended. People who otherwise be excluded from the genuine economy have to conjure new means to participate. The net result is an economy based upon fictions: You must have this. You must heed this. I must prescribe this.
You will be at risk if you do not take my prescription. See it now? Only in Swedish but though as I understood now being translated into German. What is striking is that the countryside basically very rapidly has turned empty on people and where the very few remaining are isolated individuals and where accordingly social relations are few today.
Passing farms today you seldom see any people. My Swedish farmer friend is a typical close by example for me.
Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. Yes, lots we can learn from traditional societies.
The World Until Yesterday paints the picture of a pretty brutal world. At least that is what I thought.
But we lost an understanding of the web of life, something that comes naturally to traditional societies who are more integrated into their environment. Sasha I read that statement by Chief Seattle 5 decades ago. There is so much truth in it. And this wisdom has been ignored even in the past 5 decades as well…Humans think they are the most important part of the web and can do whatever they like……. Yes, very true. The last 50 years even sped up the process of destroying the soil with industrial agriculture.
I wonder what happens next…. To Sasha and Gary. Not wishing to turn Dr Kendricks blog into book club but have to say I agree re Native American sayings, many years ago read Bury my heart at wounded knee. Wonderful, heartbreaking.
It all kind of feeds in to the discussion. Soul destroying news. How you continue weathering the storm Dr. K is beyond me. Joyce: I would suggest that Dr. Kendrick weathers it well because he is comfortable with the clarity to see truth where it lies, and bullshit where it is deposited on the ground. And he relishes solving a puzzle I admit I do, as well. Maybe not directly related to this article, but the following appears in todays Irish Times and i am limited in my capacity to understand where he is coming from.
Jerome, just likt the rt of us, you will just have to learn to ignore the bloody experts like Professor Vincent Maher. Thanks Bill. The constant bombardment from the establishment can get on my nerves. I certainly dont need the stress potential from the cardiac careerists. Tho on a positive note, more and more i become interested in crowd behaviour, and the causes of tribal thought paralysis. I feel obliged to make another comment on autism and vaccines.
It will probably be my last because I find it difficult being out on a limb here. On this blog we purport to be seekers of truth and true science yet still manage to display some biases. Please hear me out. I have spent my working life looking at personality traits in young children fascinating!
Autism was only properly acknowledged by people who worked in the field and there was a reluctance to diagnose it because of the often awful implications. Less severe cases were not diagnosed. When the autistic continuum became accepted, people were less reluctant to talk about it and we had another umbrella term in which people could be categorised and pigeonholed. It develops in the very early years generally shows before 36 months and many parents do not recognise that their children have a propensity for it.
One child is seldom like another and people tend to seek reassurance rather than trouble. There have been plenty of stories in the past of normal children being spirited away by the fairies who leave a demon in their place.
I, and my colleagues, have seen lots of children displaying autism when their parents are unaware. Children with autism have high levels of anxiety. A British working party under the chairmanship of Dr Mildred Creek in produced nine points to help in the diagnosis. The children cope with this by switching off to their surroundings which can hide the anxiety. It is responsible for rituals, obsessions, outbursts….
This acknowledges both genetic and environmental components. The strong genetic component suggests that both twins have the propensity for autism. If there is enough normal behaviour, mild autistic traits tend not to be diagnosed. This will apply to a very large number of children and adults! Bearing in mind the high levels of anxiety and heightened reactions of these children, what is more likely to upset them than being taken into a strange room where a strange person sticks needles into them while they are held by an anxious, uptight parent?
Children without such a propensity can be strongly affected by such unsettling events the stuff of nightmares so it seems entirely reasonable to assume that the act of vaccination is often a trigger for autism to those with the propensity. Our systems are at full alert at such times. So if there is anything in the vaccine to hurt us, being in a hyped-up state is a bad time to receive it.
