But my point was that you seemed to find fault in profit. Without profit alternative energy sources would not exist. They do, and they are growing.


Truth!

Are you sure you're not Mentally Incapacitated nay... fixated on the absurd? Most people in this position wouldn't be aware of their own Illness. This thread is a pretty good indication there may be some of that going on with you.Just saying.

Instead of pointing fingers and denying the obvious, perhaps you should take a good hard look in the mirror for the answers you seek.

While I think in some things they are really stretching it and likely to stretch that dollar. There is such a thing as mental illness. In fact there even such a thing as mass group mental illness, and sometimes it is even considered normal if that group is big enough and if or not you happen to be a part of it.

And while sucking at math is really stretching it as it can also be because a whole host of other factors, after all there have been people who got hit on the head and forgot how to speak or use appendages like there hands and feet, but can do high level calculations in there head in an instant when before they couldn't, Dyscalculia could just be based on a whole bunch other factors of the brains processing power and prowess.

In fact most being good at math if you take some of these cases for what they are, may be a lower function of the brain, much more then people like to think, as those who suddenly find themselves extremely good at it, also lose other function besides the basic motor skills.

And some are quite real. As in mental illness exists. See this guy in the video, he is actually a very mild case, and worldwide there are others like him and have been all throughout history. And I have seen people who would make this guy seem normal, some have it so bad as to be classified as being possessed.

And in some cases its hard to know if both symptoms are not ultimately one and the same, but merely called by different names and wordage's, at different points in history, and yes they are dangerous to themselves and others. Makes one wonder what would people in the 18th century or the dark ages call a schizophrenic if they ever ran into one in his or her while they were on there mental period? Possessed by a witch or demon most likely right? Would they be wrong? As ultimately its effects would be the same.

So ya schizophrenia being one real mental illness, there are plenty of others. But there are also plenty of others which are kind of just pandered to, and some which are also created, and some that are even hoaxed, and yes even some that are maintained purely by popular opinion, and plenty of others then those as well.

Very possible.

I've got a friend who is bipolar. When she's up, she's HAPPY as can be. When she's down, she is self destructive, insulting, her personality is completely different. That's when she stops taking her meds as "they don't do anything". She's been diagnosed a whole year, so the docs obviously haven't found either the right balance of meds or the right one for her.

Maybe he identifies as something else

I don't think you are quite getting what I mean.

Let's say I were to say, "Unicorns don't exist". That means something, because you know what a unicorn would be were it to exist.

If I were to say, "Toffledrogus doesn't exist", I am not really saying anything, because I am not refuting the existence of an idea you know.

So in order for it to be a meaningful statement to say that Mental Illness doesn't exist, we have to know what you are actually even saying Mental Illness would be were it to exist.

So how would you define the idea you are refuting?


Ok, check this out: I am creating a new mental disorder.

"Ameronaesia."

Symptoms include obesity, laughing, agitation, innapropriate behavior, sluggish movement, yawning, excitability, depression, eating too much, fatigue, aggression, low self-esteem, and grandiosity.

"If you're showing symptoms of Ameronaesia please call us today for a free consultation as we may have the right medicine for you.

Call us now at 1-800-768-4422.

Ameronaesia hurts, medicine can help."

*The proceedings are not indicative of actual retail pricing. Phone calls require a $5 fee. Side effects of medicine may cause rash, itchiness, diabetes, lower heart rate, heart attacks, stroke and/or death. Please seek an immediate health care provider for more questions* blah blah blah

RACK-ET!

Ayahuasca, has shown promise but....... It doesn't "fit" with the psych model of prescribing meds.


I will admit that psychedelics MAY actually lead to enlightenment but I'm not sure.

It's either an excuse to get high or it can really open your mind.

I think I've also posted enough evidence showing that there's no mental illness and that medicine is actually dangerous.

Are you sure?


Yeah, I did. And playing coy isn't cute.

Bipolar is defined as having periods of mood elevation and periods of depression.

So if I'm happy I'm bipolar and if I'm sad I'm bipolar.


No. Depression is not "sad." Manic is not "happy."



Splitting hairs.

You got to remember that Big Pharma is a multi-billion dollar industry.

So is "Big Oil." So is the construction industry. Not sure of your point. Big Pharma has its fingers in a whole lot of pies, I'm not sure psychiatry what it depends on.


Well that's easy, big oil creates the oil in the ground , in order to sell it and make money....

That's basically the logic going on here .....

I feel like the OP is just trolling, he's repeatedly refused the proof provided many times and also the many posters who have replied that have psychological disorders.


Aren't you being a troll?

Oil isn't bad, it's the procurement and stifling of markets that has become criminal. Oil lobbyists have suppressed alternative energy for quite a while now but thankfully that is starting to change.

As for the mental illness MYTH there is plenty of evidence proving it doesn't exist. I'm sorry you're not intelligent enough to see that. Or are you another paid shill?


Indeed it must be my extreme stupidity and ignorance that doesn't allow me to believe that mental illness is a myth

Man you're good!


Sorry, but there's no point having a conversation with a rock. You're not competent enough to see the big picture.


Lol yup it's me, I'm too dumb to buy into your theory that mental illness doesn't exist

Man the irony is thick


You're right, the irony is thick.

Mental illness is a theory as well. One that people have taken for fact despite being proven not actually being a science.

So you're going back and answering posts 3 pages back and skipping the ones directly asking you questions that are relevant ...

I'll ask again....

If mental illness doesn't exist, explain irregular brain scans of those w severe schizophrenia....

Explain chemical imbalances that cause mental and emotional disorders

Explain delusions prior to administered medications

Have you been diagnosed

One of my closest friends had a variant wherein he swung from slightly depressed to very manic. There's a different term for it, I don't recall it. Just the bipolar part. The problem was, at his peak, his judgement was way way off. But everyone loved the guy, because he was non-stop fun 24/7, except for a couple of days a month when he'd call in sick and drink himself blotto.

His meds worked a wonder. But he hated them, because he became just manic of flat. All the good times stopped and the beer buddies went home, because MC wasn't out there rappelling out of the tree in his front yard, or caving, or doing BASE jumps where he pulled just a BIT late and whopped into the dirt like a Wile E Coyote cartoon when the shroud lines stretched.

So one day he got into a fight with someone he didn't know, and they had a running gun fight down a main drag, and he accidentally shot himself in the thigh. He had a big funeral though, probably 200 people turned out. The meds might have been better.

My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -
It gives a lovely light.

Care to show this "proof" as I think you'll find the "proof" isn't.

All we have, so far, is you saying mental illness doesn't exist. I'm sorry, but I won't take the word of a stranger on the Internet. I require evidence (something you haven't provided).

I'm on a tablet. It's not easy scrolling through and reading all of the comments.

Brain scans didn't denote mental illness. Scans may have shown more/less activation of certain parts of the brain but this is not indicative of any mental illness.

Taking street drugs too will alter your brain chemicals and show different results on scans.

Psych medicine is directly linked to causing abnormal chemical levels as well.

Why don't you read through the thread again and look at the side effects of the medicine? Oh that's right, you guys only hear what you want to hear.
