Medicine has become the religion of modern times. Since Louis Pasteur, the deep Christian founder of modern day medicine and father of vaccines, the beliefs and practices of traditional Christianity have been transferred into medicine: physicians have taken the place of priests; the search for health replaces the quest for salvation; the hope of physical immortality (through cryonisation, cloning and genetic manipulation) will soon take over hope of eternal life; vaccination plays the same initiatory role as baptism; and a hypothetical universal vaccine shall save all mankind from illness, tomorrow, just as the Savior atoned for the sins of the world.sToday, the medical powers are the State's ally, as the Catholic Church used to be. "Charlatans" are prosecuted as were "heretics" in the past and dogmatism in medicine prevails over an open state of mind regarding "unorthodox" - yet quite relevant - theories. We are still being manipulated by fears and childish hopes. We must become aware of how religious beliefs and fears surreptitiously influence medicine if we want to be responsible for our own health, and if medicine is to be free from unconscious and limiting influences.
