Fractured fairy tale: Everyone Knows what Muslims say .
They Can't decide if Saudi Arabia or Iran has the right Interpretation of Islam given by the So Called Prophet Mohammed.

Zanjan: Ghost: “all those in the mental asylums who hear God talking to them. Are they in some way different to those, er ... prophets, that we do get to hear about?”
Yes, the institutionalized are non-functional. They can’t make an egg salad sandwich for themselves. You don’t hear of their names because they can't organize their own pill schedule.
If the Prophets sound unintelligible to you, then you’re the crazy one.
ghostgeek: As for who was the saner, those running mental asylums or those condemned to them as patients, I think the jury is still out on that one.
The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum was built to house 250 patients, but by 1949, the hospital had over 2,400 people in its care. Shockingly, overcrowding was the least of the Trans-Allegheny's issues. A 1949 investigation conducted by The Charleston Gazette found unruly patients locked in cages, lobotomies being performed with rudimentary instruments such as ice picks, and hundreds of neglected patients, conditions that undoubtedly contributed to the tens of thousands of lives the asylum claimed over its years of operation. Amazingly, the institution only came to a close in 1994. Now, it's billed as a "haunted asylum" to paranormal seekers, who can stay overnight if they can summon the courage. ...
36 black-and-white photographs was all it took to take down Byberry Mental Hospital. Charlie Lord, a conscientious objector assigned to duty at the hospital, compared the wards to "nazi concentration camps," describing overcrowded conditions where patients were sleeping in their own feces and urine. The facility was filthy, and hundreds of patients were allowed to roam the facility naked. Lord's images of the inhumane conditions were published in a 1946 issue of Life magazine, and sparked widespread reforms of mental health facilities. The pressure of the negative publicity also resulted in downsizing of the hospital, and eventually, its closure. Thank god for Pacificists with cameras. ...
If intentions counted for anything, Greystone’s noble mission to provide a sanctuary for the mentally ill might have meant something. That is, had they not went on to interpret “sanctuary” as squeezing 2,412 patients in a space meant to hold no more than 1,600. To make matters worse, Greystone adopted controversial treatment for its patients, regularly administering Insulin shock therapy, and electroconvulsive therapy to veterans suffering from PTSD.
As accounts of sexual abuse, suicide, death, and even a well-publicized escape of a rapist became to accumulate, there was increased pressure for Greystone to conclude its program. Yet, New Jersey's mental health officials have since made plans to replace the facility with a smaller hospital. One can only hope the new 750-bed facility will provide more humane humane treatment.

In 1919, two orderlies at the Byberry mental hospital confessed to strangling a patient until his eyes popped out. The orderlies blamed their actions on having PTSD from World War I. Not only were they not prosecuted, they were kept on staff — at a higher pay grade.

Zanjan: "Murdering, stealing and lying his way into myth. "
How many names of infamous leaders are that old? Farthest back I can think of are King Herod, Caligula, and Empress Wu. They had one thing in common - nobody chose them to be their leader. They were quite mad.
I should send you a good book on human behaviour. People aren't stupid; while they sometimes do stupid things, they won't tolerate being wronged for very long.
The mentally ill are too sick to help themselves and your articles show how loveless everybody else was.
Fortunately, we have a lot of watchdog groups today and the media are just itching to get their stories on-screen across the country. Society has turned its attention away from the daily grind to zero in on others.....we have the extra time now.
This is the day of exposure - everybody is naked in the light.

ghostgeek: Well, we agree on one thing. Moses was definitely bonkers. As for the mentally ill, it's getting hard to point to anybody who isn't off their rocker.
So, Moses gets the Pharoah to let all the Jews leave Egypt.
Then he does some fancy smanchy stuff during the forty years he leads the Jews around the desert to wean out a number of generations of slave mentality and then and only then does he lead the new generation of Jews to Israel.
Crazy? Bonkers? Mentally ill?
No, just the opposite...
Moses was brilliant.
ghostgeek: Read the book. Moses was a liar, thief and murder. If that's your idea of someone who's brilliant then God help you!
Ghost, you are not correct. You are suggesting that a very large number of people, were led out of Egypt, endured unbelievable hardships for 40 years, still leading them to Israel....as a thief, liar, and murderer?
So you think that Moses was Hitler?
This is what I believe, you are the one that is mentally ill.
The world of Moses occurred over 3500 years ago. His story is still being told today as historic, as a lesson of courage, honor, and integrity, in leading a large number of Jews out of slavery. And as I said, led these people around the desert for 40 years to wean out their slavery mentality. Then lead them to Israel. That is the short story.
What will be remembered of Hitler? That he murdered 6 million Jews and millions of others. A man who caused the deaths of close to 100 million people.
If you see anything close to Hitler being courageous, honorable and having any integrity, you are mentally ill.
Mater of fact, if you believe that Moses was Hitler...you are a card-carrying Nazi.
Zanjan: Ghost, I don't agree that Moses was bonkers.
With Moses and the exodus, nobody ever reported discovering thousands of human bones laying around the desert, or even any graves. Not then, not in modern times either.
That doesn't mean the story is a hoax. It means you don't understand it.
