I came across it researching types of dementia other than Alzheimer's Disease.

Honestly, I don't care if fundamentalists' behavior resembles any mental disorder or not. I try to stay waaaaay the hell away from them.

However, the next time they show up in my WalMart parking lot with 2(the "demon possessed" ones) of their 5 children gagged and bound to the bumper of their mini van, while they (the fundamentalist parents) went in to the store and bought tarp, duct tape, and a baseball bat, I won't wonder what they might be up to. I'm sure everything's just fine. Drinking Beverage

You're right. I missed that. I'll read it later when I have more time than I do right now. Thanks for pointing that out.

Yeah, but it also has "amental" in the middle (and we all know what adding the "a" in front of a word does...) so that doesn't make it clear at all. Tongue

Yabut. Otherwise rational posters such as you and Ghost argue that it is not, indicating that simple exposure to the term makes one fucking nuts. Big Grin

They've been HADD. Big Grin

Feeling less anti-theistic since originally posting, more like a theist kinda prophet - for educational purposes only Tongue - and have come to a conclusion. HADD followed by assignment of Identity, usually in the form of projection, is made of fail. Identity is a totally local, environmental concern. Limiting the limitless in such a fashion, is ego. Bad enough using words to talk about god... Dodgy
