RSE addresses Dr. Keay’s released letter

In March 2014 Thurston County released a November 2012 letter to its health officer from Dr. Brian Keay, a Yelm-based physician, wherein Keay requested an investigation into his allegations about a former patient, JZ Knight.

The Nisqually Valley News (NVN) and KCPQ-TV 13 FOX News in Seattle published interviews with Dr. Keay April 18, 2014, and many facts (listed below) were omitted from both reports.

1. Dr. Keay stated under oath in deposition in April 2013 that JZ Knight was a former patient. In Keay’s November 2012 letter to the Thurston County Public Health Officer, he made a diagnosis and prognosis WITHOUT having examined JZ Knight.

2. Knight did not authorize Keay to communicate with, or divulge any healthcare information to, the Thurston County Public Health Officer.

3. Dr. Keay testified that he relied on information given to him by other patients and that he failed to investigate their accuracy in any way.

4. Dr. Keay’s medical opinions in the letter may constitute a breach of HIPAA and the standards of professional conduct of the Washington Department of Health Medical Quality Assurance Commission.

5. The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office reviewed Dr. Keay’s letter. In an email to County Manager Don Krupp, Undersheriff Tim Braniff stated, “We reviewed the letter you provided addressed to Dr. Yu from Dr. Keay, and there is no current investigation pending on the individual mentioned, and without first-hand knowledge, we cannot continue our investigation.”

6. Dr. Keay failed to disclose to the media that when he wrote the letter, he was involved in an intimate relationship with one of his patients, Virginia Coverdale.

7. Dr. Keay failed to disclose that while involved with Coverdale, she was also working in his office and had access to the medical records of his patients.

8. Dr. Keay failed to disclose that Coverdale was the defendant in a lawsuit in Thurston County in which two judges ruled that she made improper disclosures of Ramtha School of Enlightenment (RSE) materials.

9. Dave Champagne, Coverdale’s brother, issued a statement to the media in October 2012 about his side of a long-running family drama that has been ignored by the media.

10. Virginia Coverdale was only an RSE student from September 2006 through 2010. She never received any firsthand knowledge of the mineral tonic formula, which was given many years before she came to RSE.

11. The same tonic students learned to make for themselves has been — and still is — available commercially through online sources.

13. Dr. Keay has never been a student of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) and has no firsthand knowledge of the school.

14. Dr. Keay placed a display advertisement in the April 18 NVN saying he is closing his Yelm Office April 30, 2014.

In the Q13 Fox interview clip, Keay was right about one thing. If people in the mid- to late-1990s had actually consumed a lye solution, they would have had severe burns in the mouth and throat. So if hundreds or thousands of people in Yelm really were drinking lye as Coverdale alleged, why didn’t she hold up voluminous newspaper articles about the 911 calls?
Why didn’t Dr. Keay wave a stack of ER reports?
Why not? Because there were none.
Because Coverdale and Keay epitomize ignorant rumormongers in their attempts to demonize RSE with lots of scare tactics but no facts. And Q13 Fox drank the Kool-Aid Coverdale and Keay served up.

JZ Knight addresses Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment students, November 7, 2013

JZ Knight’s exchange with Nisqually Valley News (NVN) Sports Editor Tyler Huey was published and released in their print edition Thursday, April 17, in response to his opinion column.
“You should know and be glad you attended Fresh Air II and what you have been taught at RSE about physics.”

Dear NVN Editor,

Sports Editor Tyler Huey’s April 4th column said “Belief Is a Powerful Asset for Everyone,”
and that “The notion of Ramtha being real seems silly” and that “Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) appears to be a cult.”
In correspondence with one of my staff, Huey said, “No credible scientists believe the assertions taught of quantum physics,
and how one can literally predict the future and change your reality.”

Yet he received a published paper link to the American Society for Psychical Research co-written by the then-foremost leading parapsychology researcher in the US, Dr. Stanley Krippner, describing how I allowed him to conduct 3 PUBLIC tests on my body in 1997 to demonstrate if science supported my channeling Ramtha was authentic. Who would allow that public testing to occur if not genuine? Krippner publicly said “[JZ Knight] is not a fraud,”

Huey was also shown quotes from two of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th Century about the validity of quantum physics taught at RSE:

1. “I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness.”
Max Planck, one of the founders of quantum theory, which won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918.

2. “The first person to suggest that quantum theory implies that reality is created by human consciousness was not some crank on the fringes of physics, but the eminent mathematician John von Neumann.
In his quantum bible [Mathematische Grundlagen der Quantenmechanik or The Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics] …, the most influential book on quantum theory ever written, von Neumann concludes that, from a strictly logical point of view, only the presence of consciousness can solve the measurement problem.”
Physicist Nick Herbert

I asked Huey if in his opinion there is no scientific basis for Ramtha, then what is his opinion on creationism, the talking snake story in Genesis
and that the world according to Christian belief is only 6,000 years old?
Where is the scientific basis for these stories?
And, how DID Cane & Abel have children? Who did they marry?

He responded, “I do not believe in the talking snake story; I do not believe in God; I do not believe the universe, living organisms, etc., originated from divine creation; I believe in evolution and science; I believe anyone who thinks the Earth is 6,000 years old is like an ostrich who sticks its head in the sand, follows a book that was written thousands of years ago, and ignores modern-day facts that have disproven many things they believe to be true. Perhaps I am wrong on some accounts, but that is what I believe.”

I said,
“Great answer.
And we let folks believe whatever they choose,
even in talking snakes and a 6,000 year old earth”.
That you and your newspaper solicit community debate is an important role in fostering understanding in our community.
I acknowledge Sports Editor Huey for his views on science supporting the knowledge of our world today. And, on this we agree:
“Belief Is a Powerful Asset for Everyone.”
