The DSM-IV Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

Reading the DSM-IV,Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, written by the powerful Christ Psychotics that were in control of America, ca 1840. Last time the DSM was updated was in 2000.
This manual is the GUIDE all neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologist MUST follow, the reason Christians are not defined for the CRAZY deluded, ignorant, confused, sadomasochistic, people they are. The DSM is also followed in ChristPsychosis infected Europe..no wonder English are so blind to the ChristPsychosis infecting them, from their deluded Queen down to the must humble subject.

Let's keep in mind ca 1830, ChristPsychotic Joseph Smith after ingesting entheogens Saw GODS and with the aid of two magic stones translated golden plates from god...Mormonism was founded and keep these drug addicted people theotarded stuck in the Middle Ages...

...and this is the deviant MormonPsychosis infected imbecile that want to be POTUS.. Romny?
The stupid news media in their amazing ignorance & christPsychosis affliction, never questions this man mental health after his obvious schizophrenia-like comments.
The DSM is never questioned for its biased conclusions...Schizophrenics will never question their own mental health when the schizophrenics in control of the asylum define what mental illness is writing their manuals.

Christians ca 1840 writing the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is The reason ZombieGod Belief ---bizarre metamagical beliefs created by the brain which are no different to the bizarre beliefs at the root of neurological disorders like schizophrenia, TL epilepsy---- is NOT linked to other mental disorders which also have identical imaginary friends at the root of their delusions.
Neurology shows that these irrational beliefs can be easily replicated in the brain. After all it is the brain that creates them, not the ass.

Religion is simply organized schizophrenia. A Belief that a resurrected zombie named Jesus the Christ saves with blood is for theotards suffering from brain malfunction.
Crazy is as crazy reason & does. A defective brain can only produce disturbed cognition & irrational thoughts like those of children or mentally retarded adults. 2+2 is not equal to six, but four.

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.

Sorry to see your brain has not evolved & is still stuck in the past. Cognitive dissonance must be an awful affliction to have, careful and not become a Christ Psychosis infected theotard. Remember, those folks stuck in the past, suffer from a similar disorder that you have.

I know the truth I present becomes soporific to those folks suffering from mental problems not having the intelligent to understand it. Please, with the help of a neurologist read the DSM-IV to have an inkling ofd the facts presented.
Remember only children & the retarded communicate with pictures.

Wish you the best Kate. Get well soon...

Yes, just What are you reading? which is the subject of the thread. That would be an intelligent response..

I'm reading the ICD 10- used throughout Europe and the UK for diagnostic purposes - completely different from those manuals utilised in the USA

Still being fairly new to this heathen malarky there are many books I see mentioned here that I have not read. I therefore decided to contact the tribespeople of the Amazon to see what material they could offer. I have lots of books on religion already but decided to add these to my library. For some reason I have never read a book by Sam Harris so ordered a few of his to see what I think.

Just in

Bertrand Russell: Why I am not a christian
Lawrence M. Krauss: A universe from nothing
Daniel C Dennett: Breaking the spell
The other bible (mentioned by star and ghoulie the other day)
The Hermetica: The lost wisdom of the pharaohs
The memorable thoughts of Socrates
Voltaire's philosophical dictionary
Immanuel Kant: The critique of practical reason

Arriving shortly

Sam Harris: Free will, The moral landscape, The end of faith
Victor J Stenger: New Atheism
Asimovs guide to the bible

Plus various other books not related to religion. Should keep me going a little while.

Bought at the rally: Candidate Without a Prayer by Herb Silverman (foreword by Da Dawk)
and Attack of the Theocrats by Sean Faircloth....

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

I know what you mean. I think my interest comes from all the plagiarism between egyptian mythology and the current crop/crap. That's not to say this book will reveal any of that and it will probably be the last one that I read.

I did find the Hermetica a tad boring and repetitive- rather like any woo-woo or religious book really but if you can plough through it it can be useful in arguing with the dorks who believe everything started with the babble
