Default Belief in Angry God Associated with Poor Mental Health

This is interesting.

Belief in Angry God Associated with Poor Mental Health - Blog

The researchers found that belief in a punitive God was significantly associated with an increase in social anxiety, paranoia, obsession, and compulsion. Conversely, belief in a benevolent God was associated with reductions in those four symptoms. Belief in an indifferent God was not linked to any symptoms.

From the article:

Quote:
According to the researchers, they make sense in light of the Evolutionary Threat Assessment System Theory, which states that overarching beliefs about the dangerousness of the world can influence mental well-being.
So people who perceive threats (from whatever source) are more likely to be anxious than those who do not.

Another anti-religion post from JC. Who'da thunk it? Do you have any thing else to post about for a change?

This isn't anti-religion. It's a reflection of the way people think...

That makes all the sense in the world whether or not religion is the topic. If you think your boss hates you, are you more or less likely to be stressed than if you think your boss respects you (or doesn't remember your name)? If you feel stuck in your job (or can't switch gods), does that amplify those feelings compared to people who see a lot of opportunities to change their situation?

Et cetera.

Given his posting history, him making it well known he is anti religious (especially anti christian), the article title, and well...his posting history, I would still have to say this is another JC anti-religion post, and yes, I did read the article.

Oh, I dunno.

You've got to be some kind of pissed off to hold an innocent person accountable for someone else's mistakes. That goes double for holding a second innocent person accountable as well.

That's pretty angry in my book.

Isn't it better He provided a way that we don't have to be held accountable? He suffered personal loss in providing that way. That's love, not anger.

Yes, but what about all those who suffered because of the sins of another person back in the Old Testament? Down to the third and fourth generations, IIRC. Too bad for them. Too bad, so sad.

That's one of the concepts that just made me give up on the whole religion thang.

Islam is doing exactly what it's supposed to be doing around the world. A good Muslim will lie or die to further the cause of Islam. Both are fine ways in the eyes of their moon god. Unless you're a Muslim you're not innocent you're an infidel. And don't worry if you're a Muslim and inadvertently blow up another Muslim while trying to further the cause of Islam, you just made a martyr out of him.

So we need to control the thoughts of people? Is that the point?

It doesn't matter what thoughts people have when their belief in God keeps them from acting on them. You should be appreciative of that fact, it's called self-control... And it damn sure isn't religous people who are clogging up our prisons

Religion is their excuse, a mere tool to complete their objective. Criminals are very big on creating a false impression of religion to fool their victims and make their crimes easier to perpetrate.

Just because someone wears a cross around their neck doesn't mean you can trust them. In fact I trust them less. It's put there for others to see, not to save their soul.

This doesn't mean most religious people don't live a life of honesty. It just means you need to be able to figure out the difference.

my favorite part of the Bible is where Jesus tells the poor to suck it up & gives more money to the rich & then demands to see Caesar's birth certificate. I swear...I tear up every time I read that.

Default Liberalism is a mental disease.

Psychiatrist: Leftists are mentally ill – $4.95 today only!


Quote:
Psychiatrist: Leftists are mentally ill - $4.95 today only!

'Strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions' cited by clinical psychotherapist
Published: 7 days ago


With Nancy Pelosi repeatedly telling audiences about hearing voices of deceased women, and Barack Obama regarded by many as dangerously narcissistic, here comes a veteran psychiatrist making the case that the mental-emotional world of leftists is actually tantamount to a mental disorder.

And today only, WND readers can get a copy of Lyle Rossiter’s brilliant book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness,” for only $4.95 – a $15 discount off the regular price!

For more than 40 years, Rossiter has diagnosed and treated over 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases, both state and federal, as a forensic psychiatrist retained by numerous public offices, courts and private attorneys. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.

Rossiter explains with great clarity why the kind of liberalism displayed by Barack Obama during his presidency can only be understood as a psychological disorder.

“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Rossiter. “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”


A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says. “A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and overtaxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”

Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:
•creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
•satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
•augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
•rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.


“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

Save $15, get ‘The Liberal Mind’ for only $4.95!
