RE: Are we all mentally ill?
I think humans are hard wired to find answers, and when they can't they create an explanation.

Of course, years ago in the time of the Bible stories, there weren't a lot of answers to natural events. People made up their own.

'This thread doesn't need to be deleted and please feel free to ask questions here, that's what this thread is for. It's intended to be safer than the main board. That is a concept we try to uphold but sometimes that rule gets bent. Sorry about that.'

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

This is correct. If you're not going to be supportive do not post in this section

Edit: Thread moved - the point above is now moot.

The answer to the question? Yes.

Is that necessarily bad? No. Smile

Wouldn't one have to define 'ill' first, to answer the question?

... this is my signature!

RE: Are we all mentally ill?
The old "utilitarian" argument. Religion is good because of it's useful effect(s). No matter whether it's true or not. It's useful. Their desperation is showing again.

There are a number of things that can easily explain the Harvard findings, (better social support systems, among the "religiously connected"). He has in NO way even begun to show there is an actual correlation between unbelief and anything bad AS A CAUSATIVE factor. So since they have moved beyond the "just shut up and beleieve" crap, now they have to label it as "unhealthy".

Another adult. with a "mis-spent" youth preaching to the choir, (just like Augustine of Hippo), cuz he's pissed at himself, not everyone does the same.

Religion is not "hardwired" in Homo-sapiens. Primates do just fine without out, and for a most our time on the planet, so did we. The gods had their day in the sun. It's over. Get over it.

Yabut, the subject doesn't warrant this being in the Support forum.

I think that's right. It's an interesting topic which can't be fully explored in this section and doesn't appear to be a particularly personal issue for Leonardo da Alex. Someone should ask him if he's got a problem moving it to "Health and Psychology" forum.

A mod has to do it. I don't see him minding any.
