Hard to say if mental illness, religious faith just bypasses logic altogether - whether it is exorcism or suicide bombings.

 

Is that why there are hundreds of millions of religious around the world who have never been compelled to stab some one to death for any reason what so ever?

 

I guess they're all just ticking time bombs huh?

where does the exorcism and belief in demonic possession come from then? can we classify fundamental religious zealotry as mental illness now?

obviously they have never watched Supernatural... everyone knows if you hurt the possessed person the demon will just leave and the person will die. Dumb people.   :rolleyes:

most people who commit crimes weren't criminals before they committed them. MIND BLOWN!

 

being real...no if you are religious that doesn't make you a potential criminal, it does fill your mind with a lot of hateful and backwards ideas however. most people pick and choose what to follow in their texts and ignore the stuff thats inconvenient for them and follow the easy stuff and things that allow them to feel better than other people.

Ironic as most people who talk against religion do so in a hateful way. Kind of like you.

Looking back at my hard core religious days...it didn't fill me with any hateful ideas.

 

I even witnessed an exorcism...no knives nor did harm come to anyone.  No violence at all, in fact.

Well they are not as extreme - or, approve of religiously justified immoral acts but do not act on them.

But, in large, they tolerate or see nothing wrong with slightly more extreme religious faith than their own.

if their (and potentially yours if you are of faith) "God" came to you and said kill your child... a truly religious person (and you) would... or you wouldn't be of faith. This is the is a sickness of the mind. Religions beliefs have lead to the most horrific and horrible crimes committed by people who think they are doing what "God" has said.

That doesn't change the true underlying cause:

 

Mental illness.

 

Removing religion will not likely change the outcome...the mind will simply find another justifiable answer for what is happening to it.

Religion. Getting in the way of human progress since the world was at the center of the universe.

 

Don't worry if this planet can last us another few hundred years our ancestors of those times will be looking back and laughing at some of the stupidity of our centuries, as much as we look back and laugh at people sacrificing goats to try and change the weather (although stupid stuff like that still does go on today).

Nonsense.

Also nonsense. No matter if you follow a religion or not you have free will to do as you please.

As with this case, exorcisms are never conducted by just one person. Mental illness doesn't explain exorcism - it's a problem caused by religious extremism.

Unless the person trying to do the exorcism is mentally unstable? Yeah? 

 

The lady probably just had bratty kids and got tired of their ###### all the while living a stress filled life. And one day she had enough and decided her kids were possessed by demons.

 

This seems like a far more plausible scenario to me than she's just an extremist.
