Mental Illness and the Brain

Click to View

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.


  1. Most Psychiatrists are evolutionists. This means they reject both God and the fact man has a spirit, distinct from the body. This humanistic bias has misled them to develop the theory that mental illness is the result of a "broken brain". Society has suffered the consequences.
  2. "I am constantly amazed by how many patients who come to see me believe or want to believe that their difficulties are biologic and can be relieved by a pill. This is despite the fact that modern psychiatry has yet to convincingly prove the genetic/biologic cause of any single mental illness. However, this does not stop psychiatry from making essentially unproven claims that depression, bipolar illness, anxiety disorders, alcoholism and a host of other disorders are in fact primarily biologic and probably genetic in origin, and that it is only a matter of time until all this is proven. This kind of faith in science and progress is staggering, not to mention naive and perhaps delusional. (Against Biologic Psychiatry, Dr. David Kaiser, Psychologist, Psychiatric Times, December, Dec. 1996, Vol. XIII, Issue 12)
  3. "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)

A. The human brain is a creation of God:

  1. "A typical brain contains 100 billion cells-almost as numerous as the stars in the Milky Way galaxy. And each cell is linked by synapses to as many as 100,000 others. The synapses between cells are awash in hormones and neurotransmitters that modulate the transmission of signals, and the synapses constantly form and dissolve, weaken and strengthen in response to new experiences." (John Horgan, "The Myth of Mind Control: Will Anyone Ever Decode the Human Brain?" Discover 25, no. 10, October 2004)
  2. "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, 1993, p. 102)
  3. Only a fool would suggest the human brain is the result of random chance processes through evolution:
    "The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God," They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; There is no one who does good." Psalm 53:1
    "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse." Romans 1:20
     "I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well." Psalm 139:14

Mind over matter

Psychiatrists view the brain and the mind as identical. This is the foundation of their "broken brain" theory of mental illness. However we prove the mind and the brain are distinct and independent. The brain is the organ the spirit utilizes to interface with the physical body. Thoughts can trigger physical changes in the body. In fact, just as you can do "body building", you can also do "brain building"! The spirit can change the fMRI pattern of wiring for neurons in the physical brain.

Mental illness and brain imaging


There is no scientific evidence that mental illness is a physical brain problem from Brain Imaging Systems!

The "Chemical view" of modern Psychiatry

Modern Psychiatry takes the anti-Christian view that man is nothing more than chemicals and Neurons,
that man has no spirit or soul,
that belief in God is bad genetics,
that the brain is a binary computer,
that the mind and person hood are illusions,
that freewill does not exist,
that mental illness always has a biological cause.

The Chemical Imbalance Myth:

Mental illnesses are not caused by chemical imbalances of the brain! There is no proof of this, only speculation based upon the theory of evolution and the denial that God exists and that man has no spirit apart from the body.

Modern Psychiatry is neo-Phrenology

Like Phrenology, modern psychiatry is attempting to map various mental illnesses like depression, anxiety and schizophrenia into different parts of the brain. The problem is that almost every region of the brain is activated for most thinking processes.

Triune Brain of Psychiatry

An example of Neo-phrenology, Mental illnesses like schizophrenia are supposedly "caused" by an over active "Reptilian-complex" part of the brain and is a Freudian vestige from when we were being chased by dinosaurs!

The "Triune brain" is a combination of Ernst Haeckel's debunked embryonic recapitulation and Phrenology.

The God Helmet

Invented in 2002 AD by psychologist Michael Persinger to induce a spiritual experience into the brain with magnetism.

Psychiatrists, already adherents to evolution, believe the prevalence of religion in all cultures is because of a malfunctioning part of the brain! Even atheist Richard Dawkins embarrassed himself by flying 7000 miles to try it on and experience God for himself!
