"Alcor is not a cult and it's not a fly-by-night operation. It's a science-based medical organization," Bentley said." (Eric Bentley, an attorney for Alcor)
Is Mr. Bentley aware that the majority of people who have performed Alcor's procedures, over the last 30+ years, have been lacking medical credentials? Once he is, will he still want to call them a "medical organization"? Is he implying their personnel have been performing legitimate "medical procedures"?
Any company that, for more than 30 years, frequently allows laymen, with little-to-no formal medical training, or experience, to dress up like doctors and chop off heads is not a "science-based medical organization," it's a joke.
