Introduction:

Psychiatry is founded upon the "biological/chemical model" which is opposed to the "Moral/spiritual model" revealed in scripture. Psychiatry views man as wholly physical, just a bunch of chemicals and denies the both the existence of God and the spirit of man.

Psychiatry openly mocks and ridicules God and Christians, calling Christian theology "foolish, misleading and obsolete". The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is called the "Bible of Psychiatry". The DSM-IV is the central and most important book for classifying and diagnosing mental illnesses in North America. The most recent edition (2004 AD) has this to say about the Christian view that man has a spirit that is distinct from his body: ""organic" versus "non-organic" dichotomy foolish and obsolete" ... "misleading derivative dichotomies" "Ryle's exorcism of the "ghost in the machine" (DSM-IV-TR Guidebook, 2004 AD, p 85, p14)

Saying, "Psychiatry is a vicious enemy of Christians" are harsh words. The truth is, the only one's that are unaware of this are Christians. Psychiatry openly declared war on Christianity over 100 years ago! Psychiatrists are trained to subvert Christianity. Christians are simply ignorant of the battle by confusing Psychiatry as a legitimate field of medicine. When Psychiatrists read this page their response is: "Those dumb Christians, we have been kicking around for 100 years, have finally caught on! The cat is out of the bag! Now we are in trouble! What took them so long?"

Just as it is impossible for a young earth creationist who believes in Jesus to get a Phd in geology so too it is impossible to get a Phd in psychiatry if you reject a the chemical imbalance cause of insanity.

A psychiatry industry study confirms psychiatry and Christianity are at war!

There are Psychiatrists who reject the Biological/chemical view, but they are very rare! The Biological/chemical view is taught as a foundation in Psychiatry just like evolution is taught as a foundation to biology.

"I actually have no objections to real science in the field, if, for example, it can help me make better medication decisions or develop newer and better medications. But in general biologic psychiatry has not delivered on its grandiose and utopian claims, as today's collection of medications are woefully inadequate to address the complicated clinical issues that come before me every day." (Against Biologic Psychiatry, Dr. David Kaiser, Psychologist, Psychiatric Times, December, Dec. 1996, Vol. XIII, Issue 12)

"Biological psychiatry has not made a single discovery of clinical relevance in the past 10 years, despite hundreds of millions of dollars of research funding" (Pseudoscience in Biological Psychiatry, Colin A. Ross, M.D., & Alvin Pam, Ph.D., 1995, p. 116)

Mental illness is a spiritual problem, not a biological problem. Giving drugs to fix the brain of mentally ill people is like overhauling the engine of a car because the driver keeps hitting telephone poles.

The Psychology Industry relies on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV) of the American Psychiatric Association, for many of the names and labels it uses . The original 1954 version served to crystallize the nineteenth-century belief that mental illnesses were biologically based and similar to physical diseases. But unlike medical diagnoses that convey a probable cause, appropriate treatment and likely prognosis, the disorders listed in the DSM-IV are terms arrived at through peer consensus, designed to be used in communicating information, conducting research, providing treatment and doing billing. (Manufacturing Victims, Dr. Tana Dineen, 2001, p 86)

Humanism and Evolution

Christianity

Biological/chemical View

Moral/spiritual View

There is no God or creator.

God created the world in 6 literal 24 hour days about 6000 years ago.

The human mind is the result of an evolutionary process of random chances.

God created the mind of man in His own image.

Man has no purpose on earth.

Man's purpose on earth is defined by God.

Man ceases to exist when he dies.

Man continues to consciously exist in the spirit world after he dies and awaits the great judgement by God.

Man has no hope apart from life on earth.

Man has the hope of living in the paradise of God in heaven for eternity.

Man is nothing more than a physical collection of chemicals and neurons.

Man has a physical body controlled by a non-physical soul that consciously survives death: Eccl 12:7

The mind is a creation of the physical brain.

The mind uses the brain to interface with the Body.

Man is a monochotomous physical being, comprised of flesh.

Man is dichotomous, comprised of the physical (flesh and electricity) and the non-physical (spirit)

The mind and the brain are identical.

The mind is made of spirit and the brain is made of matter. They are two different entities. The person exists after the body has been cremated and retains all memories and thoughts of life in the body.

The idea of freewill is a myth. Every action we take is predetermined by chemical reactions, wiring and neurons.

Man was created a freewill agent by God. That freewill animates the body as the spirit chooses.

Morality is a relative thing determined by random chances and the joint consent of individuals.

Morality is determined by God regardless of whether the majority agree to pass a law legalizing Gay marriage.

You are sick and you are therefore not responsible for gunning down 25 fellow students in a psychotic, jealous rage.

There is no exception for sin in the Bible on the basis of mental illness. You have committed the sin of murder and need to repent! Luke 13:3

You are not responsible for drowning your 5 children in a car because you have a chemical imbalance in your broken brain.

Chemical imbalances in the brain are a myth with no scientific evidence. Actions are choices the spirit of the man makes. Your body is perfectly normal.

You can't help cannibalizing the young boys you raped. Its not your fault. You have an error in your DNA. You have a family history of doing this.

All behaviour is a choice. It is a myth that mental illnesses are inherited from the genes (DNA). There is no scientific proof of this.

Anxiety and depression are best cured with drugs.

Anxiety and depression indicate something real is bothering the person. Drugs defer addressing the real problem.

Psychiatric drugs are a cure for mental illness.

Psychiatric drugs remove the symptoms of pain, anxiety and depression but never address the actual cause of the mental illness.

Psychiatric drugs fix chemical imbalances in the brain.

Psychiatric drugs create chemical imbalances and cause real brain damage.

You need drugs

Your spirit is making your body sick, not the other way around. (Psalm 38:1-5) What actions and choices can you change to fix this?

A. The anti-Christian view of Psychiatry today: DSM-IV TR

"DSM-IV TR" stands for: "The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition, Text Revision."

The DSM-IV TR is the "Bible" of psychiatry today that is used in clinical practice in North America. It describes the Christian view that man is a non-material spirit inside a physical temporary body: "foolish, misleading and obsolete".

The vast majority of psychologists and psychiatrists aggressively teach that the idea of man having a spirit and the existence of God himself is "foolish, misleading and obsolete".

Following are the quotes from the DSM-IV TR that prove the predominant view within the field of psychiatry is the "chemical view": Man is nothing more than a pile of chemicals and neurons.

The DSM hides behind "Descartes" which is actually a direct attack against Christianity. The dichotomous view of man with body and spirit that Descartes taught, was exactly what is taught in the Christian Bible. It doesn't raise as many red flags attacking Descartes, rather than Jesus Christ! When psychiatry refers to Descartes, they substitute Jesus Christ, for that is their real target! Descartes believed that the human soul was located it in the pineal gland because it was the only brain structure that was singular and not paired. Of course this does not mean that Descartes believed that the soul died with the pineal gland, just that as the soul was incarnate in the body, it resided in the brain. Although this is incorrect, it was actually better thought out than medical practice of Descartes in the 16th century.

"The Term Mental Disorder: At least since Descartes there has been an unfortunate philosophical position that dichotomizes the mind and the body. The effects of Cartesian dualism of mind and body continue to plague psychiatric classification and are evident in the survival of other misleading derivative dichotomies (e.g., terms such as organic versus non-organic and mental disorders versus physical disorders). Fortunately, Descartes's dialectic is yielding to a modern synthesis forged by the converging trends of philosophy (Ryle's exorcism of the "ghost in the machine") and science (the emerging understanding of the specific ways in which the brain works to produce behaviors). The use of the term mental disorder in the title of DSM-IV-TR (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is an anachronistic preservation of the Cartesian view. This term appears increasingly silly as we learn more and more about the physical correlates of thought, emotion, and psychopathology. The term most frequently suggested as an alternative to replace mental disorders has been brain disorders, but this is equally unfortunate and reductionist in the opposite extreme. Preferable terms for the universe of conditions defined in DSM-IV would be psychiatric disorders or psychological disorders, but neither of these is feasible because of the possible professional turf conflicts they might incite among psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals. Unfortunately, we could not come up with a better term than mental disorders and thus it survives in DSM-IV-TR." (DSM-IV-TR Guidebook, 2004 AD, p 14)

"The Retirement of the Term Organic: The accumulating knowledge about the biological factors that contribute to the traditionally nonorganic mental disorders has made this "organic" versus "nonorganic" dichotomy foolish and obsolete. For example, no one would seriously argue that Schizophrenia or Bipolar Disorder are unrelated to brain dysfunction." (DSM-IV-TR Guidebook, 2004 AD, p 85)

"Except for a few objectively identifiable brain diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, there are neither biological or chemical tests nor biopsy or necropsy findings for verifying or falsifying DSM diagnoses. It is noteworthy that in 1952, when the American Psychiatric Association (APA) published the first edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), it did not include hysteria in its roster of mental diseases, even though it was the most common psychiatric diagnosis-disease until that time. The term's historical and semantic allusions to women and uteruses were too embarrassing. However, the APA did not declare hysteria to be a nondisease; instead, it renamed it "conversion reaction" and "somatization disorder." Similarly, in 1973, when the APA removed deviant sex from its roster of mental illnesses, it first replaced it with ego-dystonic deviant sex; when that term, too, became an embarrassment, it too was abolished. However, psychiatric researchers lost no time "discovering" a host of new mental maladies, ranging from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to caffeinism and pathological gambling." (Psychiatry: The Science of Lies, Thomas Szasz, 2008 AD, p 2)

B. Today Psychiatrists believe faith in God is bad genes:

Psychiatry is a vicious enemy of Christianity and the Bible.

"But recently, materialistic explanations of religion and spirituality have gotten out of hand. Influenced by this materialistic prejudice, popular media jump at stories about the violence gene, the fat gene, the monogamy gene, the infidelity gene, and now, even a God gene! The argument goes like this: evolutionary psychologists attempt to explain human spirituality and belief in God by insisting that cave dwellers in the remote past who believed in a supernatural reality were more likely to pass on their genes than cave dwellers who didn't. Progress in genetics and neuroscience has encouraged some to look, quite seriously, for such a God gene, or else a God spot, module, factor, or switch in the human brain. By the time the amazing "God helmet" (a snowmobile helmet modified with solenoids that purportedly could stimulate subjects to experience God) in Sudbury, Canada, became a magnet for science journalists in the 1990s (the Decade of the Brain), materialism was just about passing beyond parody. Nonetheless, materialists continue to search for a God switch. Such comic diversions aside, there is no escaping the nonmaterialism of the human mind." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p xiv.)

"Even though it's common knowledge these days, it never ceases to amaze me that all the richness of our mental life-our religious sentiments and even what each of us regards as his own intimate private self-is simply the activity of these little specks of jelly in your head, in your brain. There is nothing else. (V. S. Ramachandran, Neuroscientist, Reith Lectures, Lecture 1, 2003)

"Man no longer has need for "Spirit": it is enough for him to be Neuronal Man." (Pierre Changettx, Neuronal Alan, p. 169)

"The social, psychological and cognitive sciences remain stuck with pre-scientific words and concepts. For many of us the word "soul" is as obsolete as "phlogiston," but scientists still use such imprecise words as "consciousness," "personality" and "ego," not to mention "mind." Perhaps it is time that, in science at least, "imagination" and "introspection" are remodelled or, preferably, retired. Artists can have fun with them, but the serious business of the world has moved on." (Peter Watson, archeologist, "Not Written in Stone," New Scientist, August 29, 2005)

"Whatever the specialness of the human brain, there is no need to invoke spiritual forces to account for its functions. Darwinian principles of variation in populations and natural selection are sufficient, and the elements invoked by spiritualism are not required for our being conscious. Being human in mind and brain appears clearly to be the result of an evolutionary process. The anthropological evidence emerging for the evolutionary origin of consciousness in humans further substantiates the notion that Darwin's is the most ideologically significant of all grand scientific theories." (Edelman and Tononi, A Universe of Consciousness, p. 81)

Clinical psychologist Ty Colbert says that in order to adopt psychiatry's biological model, one has to "believe in a materialistic, non-spiritual world ... the medical model claims there is no mental activity that is due to the spiritual dimension. All activity, even one's religious beliefs or the belief in God, are nothing more than the workings of the brain." (Ty C. Colbert, Rape of the Soul, How the Chemical Imbalance Model of Modern Psychiatry has Faded Its Patients, 2001, p. 236)

C. Today Psychiatrists believe man is mere chemicals with no spirit:

"Men ought to know that from nothing else but the brain come joys, delights, laughter and sports, and sorrows, griefs, despondency, and lamentations. And by this, in an especial manner, we acquire wisdom and knowledge, and see and hear, and know what are foul and what are fair, what are bad and what are good, what are sweet, and what unsavory; some we discriminate by habit, and some we perceive by their utility. By this we distinguish objects of relish and disrelish, according to the seasons; and the same things do not always please us. And by the same organ we become mad and delirious, and fears and terrors assail us, some by night, and some by day, and dreams and untimely wanderings, and cares that are not suitable, and ignorance of present circumstances, desuetude, and unskilfulness. All these things we endure from the brain, when it is not healthy, but is more hot, more cold, more moist, or more dry than natural, or when it suffers any other preternatural and unusual affection. And we become mad from its humidity. For when it is more moist than natural, it is necessarily put into motion, and the affection being moved, neither the sight nor hearing can be at rest, and the tongue speaks in accordance with the sight and hearing. (On the Sacred Disease, Hippocrates, 400 BC)

"I think we follow the basic law of nature, which is that we're a bunch of chemical reactions running around in a bag." (Dean Hamer, chief of gene structure at the U.S. National Cancer Institute, "Is God in Our Genes?" Time, October 25, 2004)

"materialist doctrine that humans are biological automatons ("meat puppets") controlled by their genes and neurons" (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p 293)

"Blame and envy: Just as your own behavior can be understood as the natural unfolding of physical and psychological processes, so can the behavior of others, and your attitudes toward them might change in the light of this understanding. Seeing exactly how someone got to be the way they are, and knowing that their virtues and faults arise out of circumstances, not from an autonomous, non-physical agent, (spirit) can help to reduce the time spent on unproductive blaming and envy." (Personal and Social Consequences, Center for Naturalism)

"materialist neuroscientists and philosophers hold that mind, consciousness, and self are by-products of the brain's electrical and chemical processes, and that RSMEs [religious/spiritual/mystical experiences] are "nothing but" brain states or delusions created by neural activity. Accordingly these scientists and philosophers believe that there is no spiritual source for RSMEs, that is, they think that the human brain creates these experiences and, in so doing, creates God." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p289)

"At that point it may become obvious to everyone that all we are looking at is a piece of machinery, an analog chemical computer, that processes information from the environment. "All," since you can look and look and you will not find any ghostly self inside, or any mind, or any soul. Thereupon, in the year 2006 or 2026, some new Nietzsche will step forward to announce: "The self is dead"--except that being prone to the poetic, like Nietzsche I, he will probably say: "The soul is dead." He will say that he is merely bringing the news, the news of the greatest event of the millennium: "The soul, that last refuge of values, is dead, because educated people no longer believe it exists." (Tom Wolfe, "Sorry, but Your Soul Just Died," Athenaeum Reading Room, 1996)

"A brain was always going to do what it was caused to do by local mechanical disturbances." (Daniel Dennett, Materialist philosopher, in Samuel Guttenplan, A Companion to the Philosophy of Mind, 1994, p. 237)

"I belong to a minority-nonmaterialist neuroscientists. Most scientists today are materialists who believe that the physical world is the only reality. Absolutely everything else-including thought, feeling, mind, and will-can be explained in terms of matter and physical phenomena, leaving no room for the possibility that religious and spiritual experiences are anything but illusions." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p ix)

"There are no principles of psychology that are free-standing, in the sense that they do not need ultimately to be understood through the study of the human brain, which in turn must ultimately be understood on the basis of physics and chemistry . . . Of course, everything is ultimately quantum- mechanical; the question is whether quantum mechanics will appear directly in the theory of the mind, and not just in the deeper-level theories like chemistry on which the theory of the mind will be based." (Reductionism redux, Steven Weinberg, Nobel Laureate and professor of physics at the University of Texas, New York review of Books, October 5, 1995, p 39-42)

"Bleuler's invention of schizophrenia in 1911 completed the psychiatric transformation of language from a distinctively human characteristic into a "biological" marker of brain disease." (The Meaning of the Mind, Thomas Szasz, 1996 AD, p 116 )

"The leading practitioner of philosophizing based on reducing mind to consciousness and consciousness to the brain is John R. Searle, professor of philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley. Describing himself as an "antireductionist materialist," he states: "Consciousness is a mental, and therefore physical, property of the brain."29 His review essay in The New York Review of Books, titled "The Mystery of Consciousness," is illustrated with a "schematic drawing of a neuron, with its axon and dendrites reaching other neurons in a synaptic contact." ... Emphasizing that "what in any case I want is a causal explanation of consciousness," Searle repeatedly asserts that the brain causes consciousness: "How exactly do neurobiological processes in the brain cause consciousness? . . . It is an amazing fact that everything in our conscious life . . . is caused by brain processes." He also asserts that "Consciousness is caused by lower-level neuronal processes in the brain and is itself a feature of the brain. " In other words, Searle makes consciousness (minding) an attribute of brains, not persons. Similarly, memories are not experiences that persons have; they are things that "we must store . .. somehow in the synaptic connections between neurons." (The Meaning of the Mind, Thomas Szasz, 1996 AD, p 81, 82)

"And if we are asked why, in the case of a successful brain transplantation, we should expect the personality or the personal character to be transplanted . . . then we can hardly answer this question without speaking of the mind or the self; nor without speaking of its conjectural liaison with the brain .. . and we should have to predict (it would be a prediction testable in principle) that, after the transplantation, the person will claim identity with the donor of the brain and that he will be able to "prove" this identity. . . . we conjecture that due to this liaison the brain is the carrier of the self-identity of the person. (The self and its brain, K. R. Popper, J. C. Eccles, p 118, 1985 AD)

"One of the most famous contemporary scientists writing about the mind is Francis Crick, Nobel Laureate and codiscoverer (with James Watson) structure of DNA. In a book titled The Astonishing hypothesis he argues that "'you,' your joys and your sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules .. . each of us is the behaviors of a vast, interacting set of neurons." [The astonishing Hypothesis, p 3, 206]" (The Meaning of the Mind, Thomas Szasz, 1996 AD, p 84)

"I therefore regard a human being as nothing but a particular type of machine, the human brain as nothing but an information processing device, the human soul as nothing but a program being run on a computer called brain. Further, all possible types of living beings, intelligent or not, are of the same nature, and subject to the same laws of physics as constrain all information processing devices. (The Physics of immortality, F. J. Tipler, p xi)

"We operate on the principle that the laws of psychology that govern behavior are really brain laws that operate on a materialist philosophy. When Johnny can't read, there's an explanation in the brain. . . . when Billy has murderous intent, there is explanation for Billy's murderous intent. . . . Ultimately our plan constitutes a challenge to the societal assessments that led to the principles of common law [based on the presumption of free will]. (Neurophysiology, philolophy on collision course"?, P. Cotton, JAMA 269, 1993 AD: 1485-86; quoting Michael Merzenich, member of the Keck Center for Integrated Neuroscience at the University of California)

17. "If we could go to death row and show that the inhabitants have something wrong with their brains that could be fixed so they would become peaceful, productive members of society, obviously that would and should produce a tremendous change in the way we approach homicidal behavior." (Neurophysiology, philosophy on collision course"? , P. Cotton, JAMA 269, 1993 AD: 1486; quoting Philip E. Johnson, a professor of criminal law at the University of California in Berkeley)

18. "Whatever the specialness of the human brain, there is no need to invoke spiritual forces to account for its functions. Darwinian principles of variation in populations and natural selection are sufficient, and the elements invoked by spiritualism are not required for our being conscious. Being human in mind and brain appears clearly to be the result of an evolutionary process. The anthropological evidence emerging for the evolutionary origin of consciousness in humans further substantiates the notion that Darwin's is the most ideologically significant of all grand scientific theories." (Edelman and Tononi, A Universe of Consciousness, p. 81)

19. "We would want to know in every millisecond (the time it takes a neuron to fire) which of the 100 billion or so neurons are active and which are not. If we denote activity by a "1" and inactivity by a "0," this would require a string of 100 billion zeros and ones every millisecond, or 100 trillion every second. To give a running account of the true neural state, I would have to produce in every second something like 110 million books, each containing a million symbols. This awesome record is to be compared with my mental states as they occur." (Eric Harth, The Creative Loop: How the Brain Makes a Mind (Reading, MA: Addison-Wesley, 1993), p. 102)

20. "The social, psychological and cognitive sciences remain stuck with pre-scientific words and concepts. For many of us the word "soul" is as obsolete as "phlogiston," but scientists still use such imprecise words as "consciousness," "personality" and "ego," not to mention "mind." Perhaps it is time that, in science at least, "imagination" and "introspection" are remodelled or, preferably, retired. Artists can have fun with them, but the serious business of the world has moved on." (Peter Watson, archeologist, "Not Written in Stone," New Scientist, August 29, 2005)

D. Psychiatrists once believed thought was a secretion of the brain:

Chemical psychiatrists once viewed "thought and personality", including all emotions as being the result of chemical secretions of the brain. The idea of giving a "love potion" to a woman who then uncontrollably and irresistibly falls in love with you, is a concept that directly descended from this junk science. Chemicals and body hormones do not induce or cause any emotion like love, hate, jealousy or anger. Mood, emotion and choice all have their origin in the human spirit, not the physical body.

"The brain secretes thought as the liver secretes bile." (On the relations between the physical and moral aspects of man, Pierre Jean Georges Cabanis, 1802 AD)

"The brain secretes thought as the stomach secretes gastric juice, the liver bile, and the kidneys urine." (Letters on physiology, Karl Vogt, 1845-46)

"The brain secretes thought as the kidney secretes urine." Jakob Moleschott, 1822-1893)

E. Today Psychiatrists believe the brain is identical to the mind:

The Bible teaches us that the brain is the go-between organ that connects the immaterial spirit to the physical body: "The brain, however, is not the mind; it is an organ suitable for connecting a mind to the rest of the universe." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p xi)

"Why do people believe that there are dangerous implications of the idea that the mind is a product of the brain, that the brain is organized in part by the genome, and that the genome was shaped by natural selection?" (Steven Pinker, Cognitive scientist, interview at the Edge, A Biological Understanding of Human Nature, undated)

"But materialists think that the distinction you make between your mind as an immaterial entity and your brain as a bodily organ has no real basis, The mind is assumed to be a mere illusion generated by the workings of the brain. Some materialists even think you should not in fact use terminology that imp1ies that your mind exists." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p x)

"If you have the right sort of process and you have enough time, you can create big fancy things, even things with minds, out of processes which are individually stupid, mindless, simple. Just a whole lot of little mindless events occurring over billions of years can create not just order, but design, not just design, but minds, eyes and brains." (Richard Dawkins in an interview with Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers)

"The brain and its satellite glands have now been probed to the point where no particular site remains that can reasonably be supposed to harbor a nonphysical mind." (Sociobiologist Edward 0. Wilson Quoted at BrainyQuote)

"The social, psychological and cognitive sciences remain stuck with pre-scientific words and concepts. For many of us the word "soul" is as obsolete as "phlogiston," but scientists still use such imprecise words as "consciousness," "personality" and "ego," not to mention "mind." Perhaps it is time that, in science at least, "imagination" and "introspection" are remodelled or, preferably, retired. Artists can have fun with them, but the serious business of the world has moved on." (Peter Watson, archeologist, "Not Written in Stone," New Scientist, August 29, 2005)

"What we call 'mind' is the expression of the activity of the brain." (Nancy C. Andreasen, professor of psychiatry at the University of Iowa, What Is Psychiatry?, 1997)

"Since consciousness and thought are entirely physical products of your brain and nervous system-and since your brain arrived fully imprinted at birth-what makes you think you have free will? Where is it going to come from? What "ghost," what "mind," what "self," what "soul," what anything that will not be immediately grabbed by those scornful quotation marks, is going to bubble up your brain stem to give it to you? I have heard neuro-scientists theorize that, given computers of sufficient power and sophistication, it would be possible to predict the course of any human being's life moment by moment, including the fact that the poor devil was about to shake his head over the very idea." (Tom Wolfe, Sorry but Your Soul Just Died, Athenaeum Reading Room)

"The mind exists, like a rainbow shimmering over the falls. Yes, it's there, but it doesn't affect anything. You know it's there because some experiences are unique to yourself, for example, whatever you personally associate with peanut butter. Merely a product of brain-body processes, the mind sometimes facilitates for itself the illusion that it affects those processes, much as if the rainbow thought it affected the falls in some way. (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p 94, describing the materialistic "Epiphenomenalism" view of the brain) .

"Epiphenomenalism is the view that mental events are caused by physical events in the brain, but have no effects upon any physical events." (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

"Despite our every instinct to the contrary, there is one thing that consciousness is not: some entity deep inside the brain that corresponds to the "self," some kernel of awareness that runs the show, as the "man behind the curtain" manipulated the illusion of a powerful magician in The Wizard of Oz. After more than a century of looking for it, brain researchers have long since concluded that there is no conceivable place for such a self to be located in the physical brain, and that it simply doesn't exist." (Lemonick, Glimpses of the Mind, Time, July 17 1995)

"My fundamental premise about the brain is that its workings-what we sometimes call "mind"-are a consequence of its anatomy and physiology and nothing more... At any rate, both because of the clear trend in the recent history of biology and because there is not a shred of evidence to support it [the soul], I will not in these pages entertain any hypotheses on what used to be called the mind-body dualism, the idea that inhabiting the matter of the body is something made of quite different stuff, called mind." (Carl Sagan, astronomer, The Dragons of Eden, 1977, introduction, p7)

"The psychoneural translation hypothesis [PTH] recognizes that mental processes (e.g., volitions, goals, emotions, desires, beliefs) are neurally instantiated in the brain, but it argues that these mental processes cannot be reduced to and are not identical with neuroelectric and neurochemical processes. Indeed, mental processes-which cannot be localized in the brain-cannot be eliminated. The reason that mental processes cannot be localized within the brain is that there is actually no way of capturing thoughts merely from studying the activity of neurons." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p150)

"Because nouns such as "bug" or "hug" name real objects or events, we understand that "bugging" a person means annoying him, and that hugging him means giving him a hug; and because the noun "mind" names a fictitious object, we misunderstand "minding" as using our "mind." But we have no minds. Instead, we, qua living persons, mind. How and what we mind is who we are. Minding is quintessentially our own business." (The Meaning of the Mind, Thomas Szasz, 1996 AD, p 17)

"[T]he brain and mind are one ... They are one entity.... I use the hyphenated term 'brain-mind' to denote unity. . . . Every detail of a dream can be accounted for in terms of neuronal signal-patterns." (Chemistry of the Conscious states, A. J. Hobson, professor of psychiatry at Harvard, 1995 AD, p 6-7)

"Paul Churchland, also a professor of philosophy at the University of California in San Diego, pulls no punches about his commitment to a reductive-materialist view of the human mind. In his latest book, The Eitqine of Reason, the Seat of the Soul, he asserts that all human mental life is reducible to the brain viewed as a "biological computer. ... Churchland's finale is truly mind/brain boggling. "The aim of these concluding suggestions," he declares, "is not to deny us our humanity, but to see it better served than ever before. That is why understanding the brain is so supremely important. It is the engine of reason. It is the seat of the soul." With this sentence, on page 319, the book ends. Three-hundred ten pages earlier, Churchland asserts: "The doctrine of an immaterial soul looks, to put it frankly, like just another myth, false not just at the edges, but to the core." So is soul a myth or is "it" in the brain?" (The Meaning of the Mind, Thomas Szasz, 1996 AD, p 78, 80)

F. Today Psychiatrists believe all mental illness has a biological cause:

"There are two problems with asserting that mental and physical illnesses are analogous. First, as a general rule physical illness has an objective biological component, and that is not generally the case with mental illness. Objective physical signs are the unifying structure that allows diverse problems like cancer and colds to be categorized together while alcohol-induced persisting dementia and alcohol abuse lack such an objective link. Second, the concept of mental illness is more susceptible to bias based on values than the concept of physical illness (Fulford, 1999; Widiger, 2002)." (The Journal of mind and behavior, Guy A. Boysen, v28, p 157-173)

"The biomedical subtype is, arguably, the most popular among current theorists and researchers. Although biological conceptualizations are as old as mental illness itself, psychiatry has been especially important in promoting and utilizing the biological approach. Neo-Kraepelinian psychiatrists have been instrumental in forwarding the idea that mental illnesses are discrete biological entities best treated medically as sicknesses (Blashfield, 1984), and some assert this idea has been encoded into the DSM despite its avowedly atheoretical stance (Blashfield, 1982, 1984; Follette and Flouts, 1996)." (The Journal of mind and behavior, Guy A. Boysen, v28, p 157-173)

"The time before MRIs and PET scans is often characterized as the psychoanalytic Dark Age, but it must be remembered that the conceptualization of mental illness as biological is as old as mental illness itself. Of course, the biological perspective stretches all the way back to Hippocrates, but it was also prevalent among the very earliest psychiatrists. The opening editorial of the Archives for Psychiatry and Nervous Diseases published in 1867 stated that "Psychiatry has undergone a transformation in its relation to the rest of medicine. This transformation rests principally on the realization that patients with so-called `mental illnesses' are really individuals with illnesses of the nerves and brain" (as quoted in Bentall, 2003, p. 150)." (The Journal of mind and behavior, Guy A. Boysen, v28, p 157-173)

"the statement [that mental illnesses are really individuals with illnesses of the nerves and brain] could be construed as a sort of empty biological promise - made by those who study mental illness - that has never been fulfilled. The plain, cold, hard fact is that there are almost no mental disorders for which a specific biological cause can be pinpointed. Among the few exceptions are drug effects, mental retardation due to a genetic or brain disorder, and cognitive disorders such as those that occur in Alzheimer's disease or brain dam-age. Only these disorders have clear biological etiologies, and they are not prototypical of mental illness. Even proponents of the biological perspective characterize the current state of knowledge about the biology of mental illness as "rudimentary" (Charney et al., 2002, p. 33)." (The Journal of mind and behavior, Guy A. Boysen, v28, p 157-173)

"A tautology often stated by proponents of the essentialist position is that mind and body are inseparable. This usually precedes a statement on how there is no clear distinction between physical and mental illness. Such logic was cited as the reason for the removal of the term organic in the DSM (Spitzer et al., 1992). It is also given as the reason to rename mental disorders as brain disorders (Baker and Menken, 2001). Unfortunately, claims about the equality of brain and mental illness ignore empirical evidence and are, presumably, based on the promotion of an essentialist ideology. Even a cursory examination of the DSM will show that few disorders have known somatic causes. As such, to assert that mental illnesses are brain diseases ignores the paucity of evidence for such claims when considering all mental disorders." (The Journal of mind and behavior, Guy A. Boysen, v28, p 157-173)

"We operate on the principle that the laws of psychology that govern behavior are really brain laws that operate on a materialist philosophy. When Johnny can't read, there's an explanation in the brain. . . . when Billy has murderous intent, there is explanation for Billy's murderous intent. . . . Ultimately our plan constitutes a challenge to the societal assessments that led to the principles of common law [based on the presumption of free will]. (Neurophysiology, philolophy on collision course"?, P. Cotton, JAMA 269, 1993 AD: 1485-86; quoting Michael Merzenich, member of the Keck Center for Integrated Neuroscience at the University of California)

"If we could go to death row and show that the inhabitants have something wrong with their brains that could be fixed so they would become peaceful, productive members of society, obviously that would and should produce a tremendous change in the way we approach homicidal behavior." (Neurophysiology, philosophy on collision course"? , P. Cotton, JAMA 269, 1993 AD: 1486; quoting Philip E. Johnson, a professor of criminal law at the University of California in Berkeley)

G. Today Psychiatrists reject man has freewill:

"Materialists must believe that their minds are simply an illusion created by the workings of the brain and therefore that free will does not really exist and could have no influence in controlling any disorder." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p xii)

"The (physical) scientist studies nature. He explains material phenomena by reference to their causes, that is, the preexisting events that "determine" their present state. In Freud's day, this understanding is what was meant by "determinism," the opposite of which was dismissively called "belief in free will." This understanding is still the case among scientists who view belief in free will as similar to belief in superstitions. Freud was deeply committed to the claim that psychoanalysis is a natural science and hence requires the denial of free will. He adopted this position early in his career and never budged from it." (Psychiatry: The Science of Lies, Thomas Szasz, 2008 AD, p 48)

"In the materialist's view, our "minds"-soul, spirit, free will-are simply an illusion created by the electrical charges in the neurons of our brains. Nature is, as Oxford zoologist Richard Dawkins famously put it, a "blind watchmaker."" (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p 1)

"The first dogma which I came to disbelieve was that of free will. It seemed to me that all notions of matter were determined by the laws of dynamics and could not therefore be influenced by human wills." (Analytical philosopher Bertrand Russell, 1872-1970)

"Everything, including that which happens in our brains, depends on these and only on these: A set of fixed, deterministic laws. A purely random set of accidents." (Marvin Minsky, Artificial intelligence promoter)

"You, your joys and your sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules. ... You're nothing but a pack of neurons." (Francis Crick, Astonishing Hypothesis, p. 3)

H. Today Psychiatrists view the brain as a binary computer:

"Computers may beat men at chess, but they never brag or rejoice about it. This is the difference between a computer and a person."

Artificial intelligence machines and computers in general, appear to have intelligence because man programmed it to look that way.

The Artificial intelligence computers that TV commentators predict will be in every house by 2030 AD, and what Hollywood movies visualize today, have failed to note that artificial intelligence cannot be achieved with even an infinite number of calculations per second. The computers of the future will have enormous processing power, but still be unable to feel the pride of beating a human at chess or pity for humans when they never win again.

It is impossible for computers to ever create a true person hood as man experiences... being created in the image of God.

"I don't think there's anything unique about human intelligence," Gates says over dinner one night at a nearly deserted Indian restaurant in a strip mall near his office. Even while eating, he seems to be multitasking; ambidextrous, he switches his fork back and forth throughout the meal and uses whichever hand is free to gesture or scribble notes. "All the neurons in the brain that make up perceptions and emotions operate in a binary fashion," he explains. "We can someday replicate that on a machine." Earthly life is carbon based, he notes, and computers are silicon based, but that is not a major distinction. "Eventually we'll be able to sequence the human genome and replicate how nature did intelligence in a carbon-based system." The notion, he admits, is a bit frightening, but he jokes that it would also be cheating. "It's like reverse-engineering someone else's product in order to solve a challenge." Might there be some greater meaning to the universe? When engaged or amused, he is voluble, waving his hands and speaking loudly enough to fill the restaurant. "It's possible, you can never know, that the universe exists only for me." It's a mix of Descartes' metaphysics and Tom Stoppard's humor. "If so," he jokes, "it's sure going well for me, I must admit." He laughs; his eyes sparkle. Here's something machines can't do (I don't think): giggle about their plight in the cosmos, crack themselves up, have fun. Right? Isn't there something special, perhaps even divine, about the human soul? His face suddenly becomes expressionless, his squeaky voice turns toneless, and he folds his arms across his belly and vigorously rocks back and forth in a mannerism that has become so mimicked at Microsoft that a meeting there can resemble a round table of ecstatic rabbis. Finally, as if from an automaton, comes the answer: "I don't have any evidence on that." Rock, rock, rock. "I don't have any evidence on that." (Time, Jan 13, 1997 Vol. 149 NO. 2, Bill Gates, Microsoft CEO)

"None of this is inconsistent with the fact that memory, like the mind, depends on the brain, but is not in it. Our experiences leave an imprint on the brain, as well as on other parts of the body, for example, the immune and the muscular-skeletal systems. However, the belief that memory is a record, a sort of intracranial filing system-and that the relationship between memory and the brain is like the relationship between information in a computer and the disk on which it is stored-is false." (The Meaning of the Mind, Thomas Szasz, 1996 AD, p 48)

"The human mind is a computer made out of meat." (Marvin Minsky, Artificial intelligence promoter)

"Can humans have a spiritual nature in a universe without purpose or design? As we have seen, the lines of inquiry that seek to ground human nature in a purely material reality have not succeeded. Evolutionary psychology, for example, fails at precisely the point where uniquely human behavior begins-with genuine altruism. Likewise, primate studies and AI research fail at the very points where we require answers." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p23)

Jehovah's Witnesses are a non-Christian cult that follows the Watchtower magazine over the Bible. Like psychiatrists, they deny man has a spirit or a soul. They actually use computers to explain what happens to man's souls when they die. They teach that God "saves the individual man's program" onto a floppy disk or DVD and put it into a grand filing cabinet in heaven. Come the resurrection, God simply takes the floppy disk and boots up the man again and he suddenly becomes alive! Of course this is Theological heresy and although it is taught in the Watchtower magazine, it contradicts almost every book of the Christian Bible.

I. Today Psychiatrists believe "bad genetics" are the cause of mental illness:

"Consider that, up until the present, psychiatric genomics has been limited to studies of chromosomal link-age wherein a putative gene for a disorder could be roughly localized to a given region of a chromosome. The burgeoning understanding of the human genome taking place will lead to a complete identification of the "correct" sequence, as well as to an understanding of genetic variation among humans. In many humans, a single base or single nucleotide is modified, and it is a combination of knowing the entire genetic code and determining aberrations in individuals with disease that will allow the pin-pointing of specific genes associated with psychiatric disorders." (Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Schatzberg, Nemeroff, 2002 AD, p 53)

"The latest deadweight dragging us closer to phrenology is "evolutionary psychology," or the science formerly known as sociobiology, which studies the evolutionary roots of human behavior. There is nothing inherently wrong with this enterprise, and it has proposed some intriguing theories, particularly about the evolution of language. The problem is that evolutionary psychology suffers from the scientific equivalent of megalomania. Most of its adherents are convinced that virtually every human action or feeling, including depression, deviant sex, religion, and consciousness, was put directly into our brains by natural selection. In this view, evolution becomes the key--the only key--that can unlock our humanity." Jerry A. Coyne, Evolutionary biologist, "The Fairy Tales of Evolutionary Psychology," New Republic, March 4, 2000)

"biological determinist claims that bad behavior (usually about sex or violence) is genetically caused can be guaranteed generous and uncritical media attention, even by science journalists whose knowledge of contemporary genomics ought to have made them more alert to its problems." (Hilary Rose, "Spot the Infidelity Gene," Guardian Unlimited, December 1, 2004.)

J. Today Psychiatrists believe "chemical imbalances" in the brain are the cause of mental illness:

"The discoveries of the earlier effective antidepressants, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers were frequently based on serendipitous observations. The repeated demonstration of efficacy of these agents then served as an impetus for considerable research into the neurobiological bases of their therapeutic effects and of emotion and cognition themselves, as well as the biological basis of the major psychiatric disorders." (Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Schatzberg, Nemeroff, 2002 AD, xxi)

"Here, we focus on the principles of neurotransmission and second-messenger generation that we believe are critical for an understanding of the biological bases of major psychiatric disorders, as well as the mechanisms by which effective treatments may exert their beneficial effects." (Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Schatzberg, Nemeroff, 2002 AD, p 3)

"Psychiatry, like much of the rest of medicine, has entered a new and exciting age demarcated by the rapid advances and the promise of molecular and cellular biology and neuroimaging. It is our firm belief that although individual neurotransmitters are involved in mediating the manifestations of major psychiatric diseases, these diseases can be best envisioned as arising out of abnormalities of integrated synapses and circuits." (Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Schatzberg, Nemeroff, 2002 AD, p 47)

"During the 1990s, the "Decade of the Brain," the drive in psychiatry was to develop a comprehensive understanding of brain function at levels that range from mind to molecule and to determine how aberrations in these normal functions lead to the development of symptoms of mental illness" (Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry, Hales, Yudofsky, 2003 AD, p 427)

"Rapid advances in the identification of the human genome and in the methodology for genetic manipulation have combined to open a window into the brain. We are accumulating knowledge of human gene mutations and their connection to neurological and psychiatric disease at a rapid pace. As genes are being identified, the proteins for which they code are also becoming known. With this knowledge, the pathogenic mechanism of some diseases is becoming apparent. Understanding these maladies at the molecular level is likely to lead to new methods of diagnosis and novel approaches to therapy." (Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Schatzberg, Nemeroff, 2002 AD, p 65)

"This chapter reviews the basic framework of the anatomical distribution of the major neurochemical systems in the primate brain. These organizational schemas provide important constraints on the actions of neurotransmitters and neuromodulators. In addition, the consequences of the cellular actions and pharmacological manipulations of their synthesis, release, reuptake, and receptor binding depend on the rich and diverse interplay across these neuro-chemical systems. Clearly, a major challenge for the future involves the elucidation of these interactions and the characterization of how these interactions are disturbed in psychiatric disorders." (Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Schatzberg, Nemeroff, 2002 AD, p 84)

"Psychoneuroendocrine studies continue to play a prominent role in neuropsychiatric research, particularly in the area of depression. For this review, we highlighted the most recent significant results, as well as newer observations. Despite some intriguing findings, none of the aforementioned results, including HPA dysregulation in depression (Kasckow et al. 2001; Steckler et al. 1999; Tsigos and Chrousos 2002), are observed consistently in any given patient population. Reasons for the variability and heterogeneity in hormone levels or response are unclear. Some differences likely are attributable to demographic and clinical characteristics of the patients, as well as to diagnostic issues. Methodological differences, such as sampling frequency and sample size issues, also invariably have contributed to the disparity in findings. In addition, since any given hormone can exert organizational and activational influences on the regulation of multiple endocrine axes, the adaptive neuroendocrine sequelae to stressors are likely to be quite variable across individuals. Consequently, regardless of the reasons, none of the neuroendocrine measures as yet show sufficient sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic confidence to be useful for the differential diagnosis or prediction of treatment response. With the use of neuroimaging techniques to unravel the neurotransmitter circuitry underlying psychopathology, combined with molecular methodologies to profile individual characteristics, the meaning and mechanisms of the observed psychoneuroendocrine abnormalities should be forthcoming." (Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Schatzberg, Nemeroff, 2002 AD, p 123)

K. The chemical view was emboldened by the discovery of the cause of Parkinson's:

This quote shows the focus on chemical imbalances led to the discovery of Parkinson's., it shows the general bias towards mental illness caused by broken brains.

Parkinson's disease truly does have a physiological etiology (cause). But this does not mean that mental illness have a chemical cause as it commonly believed. Parkinson's is not treatable by psychiatrists anyway! For Parkinson's disease you need a real medical doctor!

So although the chemical imbalance bias led to the cause of Parkinson's, no actual success have been logged in the area of mental illness. This is because it is a myth that mental illness is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.

"Much attention has been appropriately directed toward the neurotransmitter systems that are the targets of these medications. A potential consequence of this emphasis is the idea, in its simplest form, that an excess or deficit in the functional activity of a given neurotransmitter is the pathophysiological basis for the disease process of interest. Although variants of this view have been very useful in motivating investigations of the molecular underpinnings and bio-chemical features of neurotransmitter systems and in spurring the development of novel psychopharmacological agents that influence these systems, in extreme cases, this perspective tends to consider a given psychiatric disorder as the consequence solely of the postulated disturbance in a neurotransmitter system. In addition to this limited conceptual perspective, neurotransmitter-based views of psychiatric disorders sometimes seem to attribute behavioral, emotional, or cognitive functions to neurotransmitters, instead of explicitly recognizing that neurotransmitters have defined actions on receptors, whereas behaviors, emotions, and cognitive abilities represent emergent properties of the integrated activity of large networks of neurons. This view of psychiatric disorders was influenced, at least in part, by extrapolations from earlier successes in the study of Parkinson's disease, which was then viewed as a single- neurotransmitter (e.g., dopamine [DA]) disease caused by a localized neuropathology (e.g., cell death in the substantia nigra)." (Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Schatzberg, Nemeroff, 2002 AD, p 69)

The success of finding a chemical problem with Parkinson's has sent "chemical scientists" following a path that leads no where.

The diseases that they have discovered with a genetic or neurochemical link, impair cognition, they do not make you act crazy. The personality changes seen in alteizmers is the core value of the person uninhibited.

L. Biopsychiatrists and reductionist psychologists believe rapist are born rapists and can't help themselves:

1. The next time an activist judge sentences a serial child rapist to therapy and rehabilitation rather than 25 years in jail, remember what you are about to read. This is the "not guilty for reasons of I WAS BORN THAT and can't help raping children."

2. "To sum up, the belief that men cannot really choose to reduce their arousal, whether based on ancient traditions or modern materialism, is simply mistaken. Penal codes that hold men accountable for sexual assault are based in neural reality, not simple-minded idealism." (The Spiritual Brain, Mario Beauregard Ph.D., Neuroscientist, 2007, p133)

3. "There is no kernel of independent moral agency.... We are not, as philosopher Daniel Dennett puts it, "moral levitators" that rise above circumstances in our choices, including choices to rob, rape, or kill." (Tom W Clark, Director, Center for Naturalism, CFN)

4. "The self: As strictly physical beings, we don't exist as immaterial selves, either mental or spiritual, that control behavior. Thought, desires, intentions, feelings, and actions all arise on their own without the benefit of a supervisory self, and they are all the products of a physical system, the brain and the body. The self is constituted by more or less consistent sets of personal characteristics, beliefs, and actions; it doesn't exist apart from those complex physical processes that make up the individual. It may strongly seem as if there is a self sitting behind experience, witnessing it, and behind behavior, controlling it, but this impression is strongly disconfirmed by a scientific understanding of human behavior." (Center for Naturalism, CFN, Tenets of Naturalism)

5. Richard Dawkins explains the philosophical foundation for why some judges, the ACLU and other special interest groups do not believe that pedophiles, rapists, murderers and all mentally ill people are not responsible for their crimes and sins: "As scientists, we believe that human brains, though they may not work in the same way as man-made computers, are as surely governed by the laws of physics. When a computer malfunctions, we do not punish it. We track down the problem and fix it, usually by replacing a damaged component, either in hardware or software." (Richard Dawkins in response to the World Question Center 2006 question, "What is your dangerous idea?")

M. The false doctrines of Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses and Calvinists are reductionist and Biopsychiatric:

1. Some Christian sects unfortunately take the identical view of man as biologic psychiatrists.

a. Jehovah's Witnesses are reductionist because they have the identical view of man as biopsychiatrists. Jehovah's Witnesses reject the existence of the spirit and therefore believe all human memory is stored in the fleshly brain.

b. Catholics, Calvinists, Baptists, Pentecostals all believe man has a human spirit that consciously survives death, but believe in inherited sin where sinful behaviour choice is forced on every man genetically from Adam's first sinful freewill choice.

c. Calvinists like reductionist biopsychiatrists, reject freewill and view man as a meat puppet, a biological robot acting out of impulse.

2. Jehovah's Witnesses, for example, also believe that man is nothing but a pile of chemicals and this lead them to wrongly fear that sinful behaviours are transmitted through blood transfusions:

a. "The blood in any person is in reality the person himself. It contains all the peculiarities of the individual from whence it comes. This includes hereditary taints, disease susceptibilities, poisons due to personal living, eating and drinking habits. The poisons that produce the impulse to commit suicide, murder, or steal are in the blood ... Moral insanity, sexual perversions, repression, inferiority complexes, petty crimes - these often follow in the wake of blood transfusion" (Watchtower, Sept. 1, 1961).

3. Calvinists, on the other hand, believe that sinful behaviours are physically transmitted by DNA from mother to child through a false doctrine called "inherited sin".

4. Catholics invented the false doctrine of the immaculate conception of Mary, so Jesus would be free of any "physically transmitted sin" when she conceived Christ as a virgin.

Conclusion:

A psychiatry industry study confirms psychiatry and Christianity are at war!

"What is essential at this time is for psychiatrists and other clinicians to speak out against the ideology known as biologic psychiatry." (Against Biologic Psychiatry, Dr. David Kaiser, Psychologist, Psychiatric Times, December, Dec. 1996, Vol. XIII, Issue 12)

"I believe they would eschew responsibility for these problematic individuals. However, consistency would demand our giving over "biologic brain diseases" to them. The fact that there is no evidence confirming the brain disease attribution is, at this point, irrelevant. What we are dealing with here is fashion, politics and money. This level of intellectual/scientific dishonesty is just too egregious for me to continue to support by my membership." (L.R. Mosher, Psychiatrist, resignation letter from the American Psychiatric Association, 1998)

Chemical psychiatry openly mocks the Bible doctrine that man has a spirit distinct from his body and views man as a chemical robot. Psychiatric research has been dead-ended for 250 years because psychiatrists are looking for the cause and cure for insanity in the brain. Biological psychiatrists are looking for the wrong thing, in the wrong place. Instead of looking for chemical imbalances in the brain, they should be looking for freewill behaviour choices in the spirit, governed by the conscience. Click to View
