Creationism is a mental illness (Page 16)
AretoNyx: Sure anything can be turned into religion, but that is not the topic. Are there creationists that have mental illness or cause it? Sure from rape or molestation of kids getting PTSD to health conditions ignored because of dogma. This includes cults that are anti vaxxers to those that pretend they cure everything in chiropractor quackery.
The fact is even if theist or nonotheist religion prevents care many laws allow neglect of children in waiver or otherwise. Creationists also often force censorship of education and prevent health care because of religious beliefs. Including if some one needs meds to if mental health issues are seen as demons rather than go to a doctor. Such faith healing of neglect and abuse does happen to kids, and some times leads to death. Though I would call that a planned faith healing murder when all health care is ignored instead of sending to a doctor, or alternative meds like bleach is administered. I even heard of a story of a church leader leaving a kid in a hot car for to rid of demons until the toddler died.
AretoNyx: True Hell. We got in trouble for posting off topic as well. Some of these things maybe should be under religion, but even some would claim cults and some religious views not religious ( or a real religion). Even for holistic or alternative views based on placebo people would claim it science , but obviously that stuff is nonsense.
kittybobo34: As far as abiogenesis, I am leaning toward asteroid/comet delivery, Panspermia I think they call it. Although the RNA based bacteria found at the deep ocean vents might mean it happens everywhere there is volcanism and high pressure water.
ghostgeek: Why should we assume that life exists elsewhere? Maybe this is the first planet on which it has developed.
kittybobo34: Ghost,, the why is because they have found organic proteins in asteroids, as well as possible fossil traces of bacteria. Still too tenuous to say for sure though.
Conspiracy Theorists are the next step! The fossil record from asteroids proves the logical existence of advanced life out there and that evolution is working to combat their ever-growing menace.
