Mogellons.org Disinformation?

http://www.morgellons.org/doctors.html states:

Note: Some county and state health departments are unaware that the CDC has a team assigned to investigate Morgellons Disease.

That's because the CDC does NOT have a team assigned to investigate Morgellons. How can morgellons.org claim this?

They also state:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) , physicians who have patients suspected of having Morgellons disease, should engage the public health system in the following way:The physician should contact the county health department and inform them that they have a patient suspected of having Morgellons disease, etiology unknown. The county health department should then contact the state health department, who will in turn inform the CDC about the patient in question.

Okay - this text appears nowhere else on the Internet except on this morgellons.org page (and now, here). Did they just make it up?

Then on another part of morgellons.org, we have:

http://www.morgellons.org/medical.html

The CDC has no program to test Morgellons…They're being a little disingenuous

Sounds like a contradiction to me.

What's the real deal with the CDC and Morgellons? Here's what is sopposed to be their form letter:

CDC has been aware of patients' concerns about a skin condition knows as Morgellons Disease for some time; to date no parasites or other agent have been identified as the source of disease.Specimens received directly from patients are typically not appropriate for diagnostic purposes. CDC laboratories are available to examine clinical specimens received from physicians or health departments to try to clarify the cause of disease. CDC encourages people who think they have Morgellons disease to work with their physicians to seek appropriate diagnostic testing.Thanks,Public Inquiry

Sounds about right. Note that they are aware of "patients' concerns", not the disease itself. Maybe I should email them and see what they say.

(UPDATE May 24, 2006: I've heard the news reports of the CDC "task force", but I'll refrain from comment on that until I hear exactly what the CDC says on the topic).

Thank you. Listen, I can give the MRF team of "experts" the benefit of doubt, that all of them are ill and know not what they're doing, except my perceptive instincts prevent me from it.

They're motivated for some reason to string people along with deception
...people that are such easy prey to begin with.

What's really driving them, if they aren't, themselves, quite ill, to mislead their believers?

People aren't holding them accountable. The believers can't EVEN reason for themsleves.

I see this document has been attributed to CDC:

It was introduced by 'AKAJess' at the Lymebuster's forum:
http://lymebusters.proboards39.com/index.cgi?board=rash&action=display&thread=1146812508&page=1

The document looks fake to me. here is the way the real HHS logo looks on a letterhead:

Lots can be done with photoshop, and within the Morgies it looks to me like there are some pretty evil people 'trolling'. I see this within the "chemtrail" hoax as well.

Actually the CDC letter looks surprisingly genuine to me - if it's a fake, it's a good fake. It matches this one from 1999.

http://njcfsa.org/CDCLET.html

Gerberding's signature though, looks like it's printed, as someone noted in that thread.

If it is genuine, I feel like it's a stock response that is given when an inquiry is made indirectly via someone like a state Senator.

You can read between the lines - it's not actually saying anything is being done - just that they recognize that people who have "Morgellons" are actually sick (and they obviously are). And that it's a problem (which it is). It's very diplomatic.

Gerberding is apparently familiar with Morgellons - she has been quoted as telling a Florida Senator that it's a "matter or concern".

Which is literally true - but it does not mean anyone takes the fibers seriously.

CDC is obviously concerned about Delusional people who are convinced they have a novel infectious disease. Just not for the reasons the Morgies hope.

In my opinion, Chemtrails are not a hoax, nevertheless I don't think they are related to the condition people are calling Morgellons other than serving to lower immunity. Chemtrails, however, for some unknown reason, have recently stopped. This may be related to the planned invasion of Iran.

I don't think chemtrails are a "hoax" either. I think it's a mistake that people are unable to let go of. Much like "orbs" and "rods" in digital photography.

This is just my opinion, but the way things are, I think that our legislators are eventually going to tire of pacifying the morgies, and their orchestrated effort to gain recogniton is more likely to have a backfire effect, resulting in new mental health legislation. I'm not expecting it anytime soon, but I can envision it.

This blows me away, from the MRF home page, the place
that you end up by clicking on:

"For All Medical Practitioners"

Note: Some county and state health departments are unaware that the CDC has a team assigned to investigate Morgellons Disease.

Once again...do you recognize that you are questioning extremely respected Doctors and scientists based on your own ignorance and laziness to consider the facts?

Smileykins, I am anything but easy prey.

Perhaps once they start labeling this disease...this country is going to be turned inside out!? Hum? How about exposure bloggers?

They haven't found it because they haven't looked. Either have you all.

What are ya'll gonna do when this is recognized? This is funny enough to watch the same people go on and on about something they have no personal connection too. Like some cackling hens. This is fun to watch. You boys are funny.

What?

Are you sure that you "recognize" what you asked? Because, no, not here, I'm not "recognizing" that I've done any such thing. I question everything, though, because I was born that way. I'm anything but ignorant and lazy, but, to me, you come across as an idiot to say so, without knowing me personally.

Whomever-you-are, saying that you aren't easy prey... what caused you to say such a thing as that?

Give me your proof that these are extremely respected doctors and scientists based on your own non-ignorance and non-laziness to consider the facts, please. No nonsense.

Ah, shoot. Nevermind, I didn't see your name at the bottom of the Anonymous post.

You, and "your people", as you've called them, presume far too much about other people, their lives, and what motivatations they have. That, among many other things, reveals a lot.

Your "extremely respected" Doctor Stricker is quoted in the June 2nd San Francisco Chronicle story as saying...

"There really are physical symptoms that occur in people who are not crazy, although once they have it, it usually makes them pretty crazy."

That's not nice, whether you realize it, or not, and in my opinion, that sentence sort of shows he's not quite hooked up right.
