CCHR UK Spokesperson Brian Daniels says: "No proof that 'schizophrenia' exists"
Jul 6 2009 Birmingham Post

Quote
Dear Editor,
Media reports on the latest research into so-called “schizophrenia”, is just another attempt to shroud a psychiatric label in medical legitimacy.

After a century of research, there is a complete absence of objective proof that “schizophrenia” exists as a physical brain abnormality. The first patients to be diagnosed with “schizophrenia” were later found to have been suffering from a virus that caused inflammation of the brain resulting in bizarre behaviour.

In practice, there is abundant evidence that real physical illness, with real pathology, can seriously affect an individual’s mental state and behaviour. Yet psychiatry completely ignores this weight of scientific evidence, preferring to assign all blame to illnesses and supposed “chemical imbalances” in the brain that have never been proven to exist, and limits all practice to brutal treatments that have done nothing but permanently damage the brain and the individual.

Rather than returning the patient to good health, the drugs used to treat “schizophrenia” cause damage to the body’s nervous system and result in permanent impairment and even death. Completely ignorant of what they are dealing with, psychiatrists simply prefer the expedient approach of “throwing a hand grenade into a switchboard to fix it”.

Ty C Colbert, author of Blaming Our Genes, says, “Diagnosing someone as schizophrenic may appear scientific on the surface, especially when biopsychiatry keeps claiming that a genetic brain disease is involved. But when you step back and observe from a distance … you wonder how they can justify their work. This is not science.”

And Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus Thomas Szasz states: “Schizophrenia is defined so vaguely that, in actuality, it is a term often applied to almost any kind of behaviour of which the speaker disapproves.”

He further states: “If schizophrenia, for example, turns out to have a biochemical cause and cure, schizophrenia would no longer be one of the diseases for which a person would be involuntarily committed. In fact, it would then be treated by neurologists, and psychiatrists would then have no more to do with it.”

Psychiatric researchers have dissected, labelled and analysed the brain, while assailing the public with the latest theory of what is wrong with it. What is lacking, as with all psychiatric theory, is scientific proof.

I find the comments of Mr Brian Daniels amusing to say the least, considering he is the spokesperson for the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a front group for The "CHURCH" of Scientology and "DIANETICS - the Modern Science of Mental Health."

Scientology was founded by a sci-fi writer L.Ron Hubbard, who had criminal convictions for petty theft and fraud and was found to have traces of the drug hydroxyzine ( brand name Vistaril ) when he died.

Mr Daniels, since you seem to be big on proof and scientific evidence I would like to know what independent evidence is there that Xenu, was the dictator of the "Galactic Confederacy" who, 75 million years ago, brought billions of his people to Earth in DC-8-like spacecraft, stacked them around volcanoes and killed them using hydrogen bombs. Scientology holds that the essences of these many people remained, and that they form around people in modern times, causing them spiritual harm.

Brian, you state that there is "no proof that Schizophrenia exists". Yet there is also no proof that "Scientology works and it helps people" despite the many frequent clams that it does from the brainwashed lips of Scientologists. Not once in over 50 years has Scientology ever been able to produce one true "Clear" with the super powers that someone is supposed to receive once they have shed their reactive mind through hundreds of thousands of pounds of Scientology brainwashing courses.

Dianetics, Scientology, CCHR, Youth for Human Rights, Narconon, Criminon and the various other "front groups" that Scientology hide behind have never been independently scientifically verified has having any truth or effectiveness at all.

I assume that you are familiar with L.Ron Hubbard's writings sufficiently to know that he wrote the best way to cure cancer is to smoke more, and the best cure for radiation poisoning is to wash it off with warm water? Hundreds of independent studies and cases over years have proven him to be wrong, so for Scientologists to be providing medical services and treatment for mental conditions with no medical training is nothing short of criminal.

Why has a CCHR discussion turned into a discussion about Scientology? Because Scientology's reputation is so bad, it has to try and hide behind various front groups like this to claim it is doing something good for society, when all it does is destroy families, and make people lose their independent thought, friends, sanity and quite often their lives through the desperation when they realise that they have been conned. When someone becomes no further use to Scientology (in other words they have run out of money) they are simply dumped and left to fend for themselves, rather than being helped like a real religion.

Before they turn to their usual tirade of 'being attacked by religious bigots' and start complaining to the editor or threatening legal action for printing the truth, may I remind the readers and staff of the Birmingham Post that Scientology is not considered a religion under the laws of the UK, or the guidelines as set out by the Charity Commission therefore they are not relevant. Also, L.Ron Hubbard wrote that Jesus Christ "did not exist", and that the Prophet Mohammed was a "small town booster who moved to Kansas, Middle East because business was bad", that's before I start listing examples of homophobia, racism, disconnection or many other Scientology policies that fly in the face of common sense, equality or human decency, it makes you wonder why the Government here has not investigated the dangers of the cult of Scientology fully. With the fraud trial in France, lawsuits regarding labour law violations and forced abortions in the US, banning in Kazakhstan, investigations in Germany, it is no wonder that so few people are proud to stand up and say "I am a Scientologist", yet hide behind legitimate sounding front groups to push Scientology's agenda onto the unwitting public.

Another critic's comment:
Quote
Psychiatry is a science that continues to develop and improve. Even if we may be a long shot away from truly "curing" mental disabilities, treatments continue to improve over the years.

Scientology, however, cannot truly improve because it's not allowed to. Constant brainwashing of its members makes them believe that everything about it works, and to change it would be criminal. It's kind of like taking a huge step backwards to the dark ages when no one was allowed to make observations or theories contradictory to the church.

I sat through the CCHR display here and it really made me mad.  This and sci ability to kill an discriminate tie as the worse of the cult.

Although 1/2 truths are nothing new to the cult their attempts to control what medical advice, and treatments I have access to boils my blood.  No one has that right

I don't think most people knew exactly what Cruise was saying with the whole You don't psychology I do rant on the today show.  It was so much more than his "melt" down.  It was a brain washed cult member spewing the "tech "  he lives to promote.

FOUND: "creepy CCHR blog":
http://howdoyouknowthatthen.blogspot.com/2008/03/are-bloggers-addicted-to-internet.html

Aside from the subject matter, are there any obvious connections you've found?  Is this possibly someone who just has the same opinions as CCHR?

Fair question. It was implied that the blogger was known to be "supportive of CCHR." Thus a more accurate description might be "this blog articulates opinions shared by CCHR."

This group is particularly dangerous for many reasons.

They appear to be active in attempting to get anti-psychiatric legislation passed, their "Psychiatry: Industry of Death" touring exhibition is full of anti-psychiatric propaganda about frontal lobotomies that are not current routine practice of psychiatry and other scare tactics.

http://www.scientology-lies.com/organization/front-groups/cchr.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/index.html?curid=3882331

Sci is anti-psych, therefore members who might benefit from psychiatry are prohibited/encouraged /brainwashed against seeking psychiatric treatment. As in any population, there are those who might benefit from treatment and may be suffering needlessly.

Unfortunately, there have been some devastating results:

The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.
