25. You're awfully quiet, Leo. Here, let me help you out.

Some instructive examples:

Don't get me wrong. I make no quarrels about my anti-theism, and I do think religious upbringing plays a role in the development of religious delusion; but I've been trained in the behavioral sciences. While not a clinician myself (social psych is my area of expertise), I've seen enough cases of psychosis to tell the difference between a mentally ill person, and person who believes stupid shit.

Within the RCC, belief in the existence demons is not only normative, but taught as incontrovertible fact by people who have been invested (undeservedly, of course) with enormous authority. They're stupid, yes, but not mentally ill.

I also happen to believe religious belief, generally speaking, does not satisfactorily meet the definition of "delusion".


There, hope that hel...

Oh...

Wait...

Those are examples me saying precisely the opposite of that fucking puke I apparently spout "all the time". Whoopsie!
