Although a small minority of us don’t think of them and their vocation in this way, medical doctors and the profession of medicine are perceived by the vast majority of people as priests working in a church. The entire structure of the medical profession has been intentionally designed to mirror a religious experience.

When you walk into a house of worship, you enter a domain that is considered sacred by the members of the congregation. Inside a church, temple, synagogue or any other religious chamber, there are specific rules that are generally understood and followed by its members. Out of respect for the belief system, any types of criticism, skepticism or questions concerning the veracity of the organization’s major premise are off limits. In other words, members of religious congregations can never publicly question the church about anything.

In medicine, the doctor (priest, minister, rabbi) customarily wears a white gown (robe) that absolutely identifies him as the high priest in the congregation (practice). Within that practice there are nurses (nuns) that assist the doctor in taking care of patients (members of the congregation) when they become ill (possessed by evil microbes). Patients do not usually question  a doctor’s (minister’s) advice.

There are a variety of techniques (rituals) the profession of medicine uses to rid the body of diseases (evil spirits). Some of these techniques include introducing synthetic drugs (holy water) in patients, mass produced by petrochemical companies. In other situations, doctors cut out diseases in the body by performing surgeries (exorcisms) in an effort to remove infected tissues and organs (possessed body parts).

Question the intentions or integrity of the medical man and his large support group of medical personnel, and you will be looked upon by the citizens of most communities as a nut job (the devil). Question the medical protocols (biblical passages) that have been written by the petrochemical corporations and firmly established within the base curricula of every medical school program in the world, and you will be labeled as a charlatan, a quack or a pseudo-scientist.
