Quote# 7554

We do [have demon possession here], it's called schitzophrenia. Paranoid schitzophrenia (if memory serves from college) is where you hear voices and other types of disturbing behavior. We call it mental illness and try to treat it with drugs. If you went to a mental health institution anywhere in the USA, I will almost bet you they're full of demonically possessed people.

They are not "possessed" they are ill.
Praying will not help them.
They need to take their meds and so do you.

Yeah, because brain chemistry is sooooo simple that nothing could ever go wrong with it.

I thought this kind of thinking ceased about a hundred years ago.

Absolutely, schitzophrenia is demonic possession requiring an exorcism

Schizophrenia however is a mental illness requiring medication.

You're so convinced of the truth of your assertion that you 'will almost bet' me? Then at least we agree on one thing: only gamble on a dead cert.

(Plus, if MI *is* caused by demons, why do the drugs work?)

That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! ... Like you actually went to college!

I will almost bet you they're full of demonically possessed people.

You'd only almost bet, DentnDude? Is this your way of admitting that you're talking out of your derriere?

One of my best friends is undifferentiated schizophrenic. He is medicated, and one of the best people I have ever met. Although, he's a furry, so you could have a point.

Then do a medical paper on it, should be easy as you all claim there's absolute proof for demons and demonic possession. Why haven't one of you ever come up with any evidence for either? Why have priests or exorcist never cured a single case of documented demensia or any other established and diagnosed mental illness?

Pills have, proving many cases to be chemical inbalances. Exorcism has not only nothing to back it as a cure of mental problems, the process of it's actually caused many the cases.
