Question by David L: Psychology; is religion a disease of the mind?
I’m an undergraduate in Pyschology. Religion and the human brain has always intrigue me. What does religion play in the development of personality and character?
When some believers had some mystic “fly out of the body” or ” getting high” experience, is there any scientific evidence to show this. Is it some neuro-disorder or mental instability?
From my weekly observation of charismatic christians, they seemed to be in a state of euphoria with the loud/rock music. The music gets ever louder, and it seems that more rock, more of that “opmh” in the music is needed to drive them; sounds like a building of tolerance to stimulants, with a vague similarity to people taking drugs.
And religious fanaticism; i compared it to alocholism. We know that alocholism is an abuse of alcohol. Religious fanaticism is basically an abuse of religion, to justify one’s actions and criminal behaviour with God’s or a higher being’s acceptance.
