Science of religion

'Cause I wuz reading Wolfe's Litany of the Long Sun, where this priest dude wuz talking to a doctor...

And Silk goes, I seen god!

And Crane goes, Man, you bumped your Wernicke.

So I hadda look stuff up:

Quote: However, because Wernicke's area also acts to code linguistic stimuli for expression (prior to its transmission to Broca's area), expressive speech becomes severely abnormal, lacking in content, containing neologistic distortions (e.g. "the razgabin"), and/or characterized by non-sequitars, literal (sound substitution) and verbal paraphasic (word substitution) errors, a paucity of nouns and verbs, and the ommission of pauses and sentence endings (Christman, 1994; Goodglass & Kaplan, 1982; Kertesz, 1983a; Hecaen & Albert, 1978). Patients may speak in a rush (e.g. press of speech) and what is said often convey very little actual information; a condition referred to as fluent aphasia.

Either that, or temporal lobe epilepsy make Johnny a prophet. Well, that and that dang Gwynnies. Big Grin

RE: Science of religion
Yes, I've noticed this Wernicke wrinkle in the writing of every Theist I've encountered in the wide, wide world of wez. Just talking to them is ... well... entertaining, but so is removing bits of tissue from my nose after a somewhat complicated maneuver. Embarrassing, might be a word I'm searching for here.

The thing is, it's so perpetuated - even hailed superior! Ignorance seems to experience boundaries far beyond patience. I fear brain damage by virtue of association. Undecided

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Now that's some funny shit right there. I'm gonna use it at work in meetings. "Dude, quit stubbing your Wernicke." Big Grin

RE: Science of religion
I would love to see a psychologist write a paper on Absolute Truth.

To explore the attraction to never changing ideas, and the lazyness of thought that such an absolute truth system holds.

That's thinking like a priest. To think like a prophet, absolute truth begins with I AM. Thumbsup

Philosophical causality either reduces to I AM or paradox. Absolute truth for this I AM reduces to I love my Gwynnies, but that is a dynamic rather than static condition. Within is contained the moral sola fides position of I love.

As it turns out a quick google search shows that psychologists have tackled this.

Black and white thinking is called splitting.

Usually in terms of pschological disorders, it's asscociated with narcissistic personality disorder, and borderline personality disorder.

What does "black and white thinking" have to do with absolute truth? You're not listening to a thing I say!

Probably a good thing. Big Grin

Lol I wasn't following the philosophical aspect of absolute truth. Rather I'm trying figure out and explain how a religious person can turn down a theory.

How they lump things into good and bad, absolutely true and absolutely false.

I know not every one of them do this but it seems very prevalent in religious debates.

Kind of like this clip.
