    | The Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD FAQ |
    | Version 3.45, February, 2004 |
    ---------------------------------

    Introduction
    ------------
    New people arriving in sci.med.cardiology (s.m.c.) are often puzzled and troubled by the vitriol
    directed at Dr. Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD (Dr. Chung) and want to better understand the reasons for
    the hatred that some folks have for him. This FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) does provide some
    truthful answers (there are versions of this FAQ put out by detractors that are useful only for
    comparison purposes). All answers given herein can be independently verified either via Google or by
    using the third-party resources at http://www.heartmdphd.com/profile.asp. This FAQ has been posted
    in the past in a manner that permits authentication. The veracity of both the posting email address
    and domain name can be independently confirmed via Google (http://makeashorterlink.com/?G5EF42A77).

    The FAQ is arranged in typical FAQ form, i.e. a series of questions followed by simple answers. For
    those who don't wish to read the whole FAQ, the following summary is provided.

    Summary
    -------
    Dr. Chung is a well-respected licensed cardiologist, who is board-certified in internal medicine and
    cardiology (cardiovascular medicine). In this capacity, he responds truthfully to medical
    questions on s.m.c. He does this out of sincere altruism when he has spare time outside his
    private cardiology practice, where he sees patients as a cardiologist. If that was all he were,
    there would probably be no controversy.

    The controversy arises from Dr. Chung being Christian, in particular:

    o He continues to publicly profess that Christ is his Lord and Savior.

    o He freely helps people to lose weight in an altruistic Christian fashion
    (http://www.heartmdphd.com/wtloss.asp).

    o When attacked on the above issues, he turns the other cheek in a Christian manner.

    o When challenged about his faith in Christ, he witnesses steadfastly without hatred.

    o When insulted for his faith in Christ, he openly calls it a blessing.

    o He remains truthful, as a servant of Christ, despite being libeled and defamed
    (http://www.heartmdphd.com/libel.asp).

    o Other Christians have affirmed Dr. Chung's strong faith in Christ.

    The above lists only the highlights of Dr. Chung's Christian behavior on
    D.r.a. If anything, it understates it. Everything can be verified in the Google archives. He
    witnesses to all at http://www.heartmdphd.com/healer.asp.

    People arrive in this group looking for help. Dr. Chung has graciously provided this over several
    years (http://makeashorterlink.com/?H10A13167). Dr. Chung consistently demonstrates the breadth of
    his knowledge and experience. This is archived many times over in Google.

    The purpose of this newsgroup is to establish electronic media for communication between health care

    researchers, students or recipients with interest in the field of cardiovascular problems."

    (ftp://ftp.uu.net/usenet/news.announce.newgroups/sci/sci.med.cardiology)

    3. Aren't Christian discussions covered by the charter?
    --------------------------------------------------------
    They are if these discussions represent "communication between health care providers, scientists and
    other individuals with interest in the cardiovascular field." It should be noted that Christ remains
    a healthcare provider (http://www.heartmdphd.com/healer.asp), who has demonstrated an interest in
    the cardiovascular field when He "resuscitated" Lazarus.

    4. So Dr. Chung is Christian... What's the problem with that?
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Some people are fiercely anti-christian.

    5. But it's just a little "tag line" in his signature, isn't it?
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Yes it is. But it offends those who are anti-christian.

    6. But I'm a Christian too! Should I worry?
    ----------------------------
    No. You have Christ's promise of eternal life and the unimaginable riches of God's kingdom.

    7. Well, why not just ignore his Christian nature?
    --------------------------------------------------
    Anti-christians are unable to do that.

    8. But isn't it wonderful that Dr. Chung offers this free medical information out of the goodness
    of his heart?
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    God is wonderful.

    9. How does a practicing physician have so much time to spend on Usenet?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    God makes time for those whom He blesses.

    10. Won't challenging Dr. Chung drive people away?
    --------------------------------------------------
    Do not concern yourself with the free will of others.

    11. Doesn't the "fault" for all those posts lay with those who challenge
    Du. Chung?
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    God uses anti-christians for His purposes. These posts are according to His will.

    12. Why do I see so many "ad hominem" attacks?
    ----------------------------------------------
    This is how anti-christian folks are identified so they can be culled from His flock.

    13. I'm sick of seeing all this!
    -------------------------------
    Not really a question unless you ask yourself "why?"

    14. What is the Two Pound Diet (TPD) approach?
    ----------------------------------------------
    See: http://www.heartmdphd.com/wtloss.asp

    15. Is discussion of the Two Pound Diet "on topic"?
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Yes. It cures metabolic syndrome (MetS) which is a condition that leads to higher rates of
    cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

    16. Who is Mu?
    -------------
    A Christian (http://makeashorterlink.com/?S5A631E57).

    17. What is Mu's role?
    ----------------------
    To serve God's will and purpose.

    18. Who is Steve?
    -----------------
    An anti-christian (http://makeashorterlink.com/?A20055A37). He authors the untrue version
    of this FAQ.

    19. What is Steve's role?
    -------------------------
    To serve God's will and purpose.

    20. Who is Bob?
    ---------------
    A food worshipper (http://makeashorterlink.com/?T48662E57). He is obsessively drawn to the 2PD
    approach (http://www.heartmdphd.com/libel.asp)

    21. What is Bob's role?
    ----------------------
    To serve God's will and purpose.

    22. Who is Stephen?
    -------------------
    An anti-christian Jew who believes that "Jesus is no more the Messiah than Elvis Presley"
    (http://makeashorterlink.com/?J1B623B67). He is so obsessively drawn to Dr. Chung's Christian
    beliefs that he is now a cyberstalker (http://makeashorterlink.com/?Y25611B67) by his own
    admitted actions.

    23. What is Stephen's role?
    ---------------------------
    To serve God's will and purpose.

    24. Is this spam?
    -----------------
    No, this is a FAQ.

    25. Who is the author of this FAQ?
    ----------------------------------
    There are multiple contributors and they choose to remain anonymous although they respect Dr.
    Chung's choice not to be anonymous.

    26. Do Dr. Chung's posts fit the definition of "spam" as some allege?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    No. Spam on Usenet are stand-alone advertisements and not unique responses to the posts of others.

    27. Are Mu and Dr. Chung the same person as some allege?
    --------------------------------------------------------
    No. Mu, John, CarolT, and Andrew are 4 distinctly different Christian individuals.

    <LOLOLOLOL>

    Did you look at the domain from which this phony-baloney FAQ comes from? Here it is:
    A. B. Chung FAQ <[email protected]>

    Remember this <Domains by Proxy, Inc.> It'll come up in a minute.

    This is just too funny for words. A while back "Steve" wrote a truthful Chung FAQ (by comparison
    with this smarmy paean to Chung written by Chung) with a reference to "faqbot." Poor transparent
    Chung obviously liked the idea so well that he appropriated it for his own use. What a guy...

    So I looked up a "whois" about this domain name. I laughed so hard I spilled my tea. Here's when I
    started laughing: <Created on: 19-Feb-04> It was created LAST THURSDAY. <LOL>

    <Domains by Proxy, Inc.>

    Then I really laughed when I saw this: <Registrant: Domains by Proxy, Inc.> It's registered through
    an anonymous registrant so the owner of the site can't be identified. <LOLOL> It's really gonna fool
    people into thinking that it's not Chung, right...? Looks like, walks like, quacks like...

    I just love watching him be such a fraud as to register a domain name with an anonymous registrant.
    It's so, um, "honest." <LOL> And did I mention "truthful?" As in the whole truth and nothing but the
    truth. I wonder what weaselry Chung will offer to justify this further chicanery.

    I sent a post with the copy "test" to the address. I got as autoreply that said, "We appreciate your
    comments and will give them thoughtful consideration." I'm sure...

    I'm going to leave Chung's whole exercise in self-praise, self-forgiveness and self-centeredness
    intact. Everybody should wade through it once. Like blowing one's nose and then looking in the
    handkerchief. Once. Not worth repeating, but the one time is eye-opening.

    > Dr. Chung is a well-respected licensed cardiologist, who is board-certified in internal medicine

    > The controversy arises from Dr. Chung being Christian, in particular:
    >
    > o He continues to publicly profess that Christ is his Lord and Savior.

    >> ---------------------------------
    >>
    >> Introduction
    >> ------------
    >> New people arriving in sci.med.cardiology (s.m.c.) are often puzzled and troubled by the vitriol
    >> directed at Dr. Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD
    >> (Dr. Chung) and want to better understand the reasons for the hatred that some folks have for
    >> him. This FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) does provide some truthful answers (there are
    >> versions of this FAQ put out by detractors that are useful only for comparison purposes).
    >> All answers given herein can be independently verified either via Google or by using the third-
    >> party resources at http://www.heartmdphd.com/profile.asp. This FAQ has been posted in the
    >> past in a manner that permits authentication. The veracity of both the posting email address
    >> and domain name can be independently confirmed via Google
    >> (http://makeashorterlink.com/?G5EF42A77).
    >>
    >> The FAQ is arranged in typical FAQ form, i.e. a series of questions followed by simple answers.
    >> For those who don't wish to read the whole FAQ, the following summary is provided.
    >>
    >> Summary
    >> -------
    >> Dr. Chung is a well-respected licensed cardiologist, who is board-certified in internal medicine
    >> and cardiology (cardiovascular medicine). In this capacity, he responds truthfully to medical
    >> questions on s.m.c. He does this out of sincere altruism when he has spare time outside his
    >> private cardiology practice, where he sees patients as a cardiologist. If that was all he
    >> were, there would probably be no controversy.
    >>
    >> The controversy arises from Dr. Chung being Christian, in particular:
    >>
    >> o He continues to publicly profess that Christ is his Lord and Savior.
    >>
    >> o He freely helps people to lose weight in an altruistic Christian fashion
    >> (http://www.heartmdphd.com/wtloss.asp).
    >>
    >> o When attacked on the above issues, he turns the other cheek in a Christian manner.
    >>
    >> o When challenged about his faith in Christ, he witnesses steadfastly without hatred.
    >>
    >> o When insulted for his faith in Christ, he openly calls it a blessing.
    >>
    >> o He remains truthful, as a servant of Christ, despite being libeled and defamed
    >> (http://www.heartmdphd.com/libel.asp).
    >>
    >> o Other Christians have affirmed Dr. Chung's strong faith in Christ.
    >>
    >>
    >> The above lists only the highlights of Dr. Chung's Christian behavior on s.m.c. If anything, it
    >> understates it. Everything can be verified in the Google archives. He witnesses to all at
    >> http://www.heartmdphd.com/healer.asp.
    >>
    >> People arrive in this group looking for help. Dr. Chung has graciously provided this over several
    >> years (http://makeashorterlink.com/?H10A13167). Dr. Chung consistently demonstrates the breadth
    >> of his knowledge and experience. This is archived many times over in Google.
