Does Scientology promote or advocate ignorance? Do they believe that medicine curing the ills of the world is a myth?
In an appearance on the Today show back in 2005, fellow Scientology member Tom Cruise harshly spoke out against psychiatric medicine and said that there is no such thing as a chemical imbalance. From what I gather, what Tom Cruise said in his interview with Matt Lauer is that chemical imbalances are a myth and psychiatric medicine is not the answer for those like Brooke Shields who suffer from depression. From what I have heard from him and other followers of Scientology is that only the belief in that faith can heal, not medicine.
