I think hell just froze.

Just a few minutes ago, a Religion regular who defends belief just said that religious experiences are a result of mental illness.

I imagine most extreme religious experiences, like the ones you describe, are symptoms of mental illness. The religious content is the result of mental illness, not the converse.



Yep, he agree that religious experiences are the result of mental illness. Yes, you read that correctly.

I would think he may want to argue what constitutes "extreme", but the agreement is there, and that is a place to work from.



Note: I'm not naming the poster or providing a link, for this is not a call-out of that poster. I just wanted everyone to know that he agrees that religious experiences are a result of mental illness.

I really love Rev. Al Sharpton.

I'm cooking dinner a few minutes ago and the Lawrence O' Donnell show is on the T.V. in the background. A commercial for MSNBC comes on with Rev. Al talking about making America better, yada, yada, yada, and he closes with...

"...and if we really want be a country that is One Nation, Indivisible, With Liberty, And Justice For All..."


I had to rewind the DVR to make sure I had heard that correctly. Yep, I heard it correctly.




Way to go, Rev. Al. You sir, are the fucking man!
