The father of the three great religions was certifiably insane.

OK, lets do this one more time. Look up the symptoms of Schizophrenia, paranoid type. Read the story of Abraham in the Bible. Notice that Abraham displays almost every symptom. Hears "God" talking to him, auditory hallucination, sees a burning bush that is not consumed, visual hallucination. Has Ideas of reference, he is special God chose him of all people to talk to. Receives command hallucinations to kill people. Believes he is in a personal relationship with the creator of the universe,… Continue

Crocoduck as a transitional fossil?

Having watched Kirk Cameron's crocoduck discourse, I got to wondering if this guy really thinks that that is what a transitional fossil is, an intermediate species between ducks and crocodiles, bulls and frogs, etc.. Surely, this guy can't be that stupid, can he? It is utterly unfathomable that any half wit could even think that such was even possible. Is it that I vastly underestimated the depth of stupidity of which some people are capable? If he is truly that retarded, how does he survive?… Continue

Us vs. Them

We are good. They are bad.

We are sane. They are mad.

We are right. They are wrong.

We are the best. They are the worst.

We have rights. They shouldn't be allowed.

We are enlightened. They are fools and idiots.

We are chosen by God. They are dupes of satan.

We are holy and rightous. They are an abomination.

We strive for high ideals. They sink to the lowest depravities.

We are contributing members of society. They are parasites and vermin.

We… Continue

Saturday, September 12, 2009 As of 2:08 PM EDT The Wall Street Journal.

In an article titled Man vs. God in the WSJ I found this delightful definition: "God" is merely a symbol that points beyond itself to an indescribable transcendence, whose existence cannot be proved but is only intuited by means of spiritual exercises and a compassionate lifestyle that enable us to cultivate new capacities of mind and heart."
Could someone kindly translate this gobbledygook? As far as I can ascertain it says absolutely nothing. I do suffer from dyslexia, but still ...

Breeding to believe

It has always confused me that people in the mental health field do not immediately recognize that Abraham was a paranoid schizophrenic (he demonstrates practically every symptom in the DSM-IV for the illness.) Religious people suffer from a neurological disorder that they have been selecting for for thousands of generations. Religious people have been removing the skeptical, the unbeliever, from the gene pool by killing them. So we now have a significant portion of the population that accepts… Continue

Learn to recognize the illness

Several years ago there was a campaign to teach people that depression was an Illness, a disease, caused by physical factors and not just lack of willpower. Their slogan was: "recognize the illness". Maybe that should be the slogan for dealing with the conservative insanity that is rampant now. These people are obviously paranoid. Many are delusional, they are afraid of the boogie monster. Liberals are commie fascists (though the two are groups are diametrically opposed), intent on taking their… Continue
