A friend of me just told me that muslims are backward. Why?
In Nigeria they just beheaded 3 South-korean doctors, and shot nine nurses that had come to give polio-vaccinations.
Accusing them of the west wanting to kill the muslim-population in Nigeria by culling their children. So you must be backward-thinking to come to a conclusion like that.

Wel i agree.
So far the spread of modernity and pro-science stance of muslims.
Because the christians overthere don't react like that. They know about immunisation and that polio can lead to paralysis and handicaps.
And bokha haram are against anything that reeks of western education.
Well that's thus no education!

So MUQ, i'm not buying your tune of modernity not existing.
If not it's needed badly.

Islam prefers the pseudo-science of creationism rather than the scientific perspective of evolution.
Make that everything that evolves.

I've never had a discussion with a muslim about evolution, come to think of it.
I know some scientist are involved in fringe-aspects in the medical field, but i simply take muslims to not be interested.

My friend says that the moment they see of hear anything about it on televison they get locked in syndrome.
So when it comes to discussions you could have a very boring evening.

I've been hearing about their hot oil pizza for years, just never had a chance to check it out.
Will make it there on next visit.
Have you been to their clone? Is it Reiko's?
Yes, tried Reko's. Similar style Pizza. The guy from Reko used to work for Colony. A while back, I believe there was a lawsuit over the recipe. Don't know what became of it.

That would be jumping the gun.
Knowing him he propably wants to change the process and lock everybody in and lenghten the proceedings, just like in the old days.
Though being the panzer-for-pedophiles-pope can't be easy.
And he would be the type that prefers luxurious retirement.

Now I have to check out TWO pizza places next time I'm in town. Good thing pizza (without pig snout etc) is actually a well balanced meal!
Yeah, we're heading for 50 tomorrow with rain. There goes the snow.
If you like Mexican, and you feel like slumming over the OG border into the lesser healed parts of my city, I can share with you my super secret best Mexican hole-in-the-wall. Parking, traffic safety, and sometimes personal safety is often an issue, though still worth the expedition.

LIMITATIONS OF SCIENCE:

The greatest limitations of science are:

1) Its incapacity to enter into the core of an object under investigation and to know its true nature by identification with it in consciousness.

2) Inability to cogently answer questions related to the origins of existence.

3) Its incapacity to uplift or regenerate nature and individual.

4) Its incapacity to engineer life from scratch.

5) Its inability to predict the future or to know the past of an individual/person.

6) Its incapacity to prevent death.

7) Its inability to revive the dead.

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA:

Page 97:

R D Laing in no way denied the existence of mental illness. But he insisted that, in order to understand a patient, the psychiatrist had to understand him in the context of his relations with other human beings, which included very centrally the relationship between the patient and psychiatrist himself. Traditional psychiatry, by contrast, has followed a Cartesian approach in which the patient is isolated from his or her environment - conceptually and physically - and labeled in terms of a well-defined mental disease. Laing emphasized that no one has schizophrenia like having a cold and went on to make the radical assertion that in many of the classic psychiatric texts the very psychopathology projected on to the person called "patient" can clearly be seen manifested in the mentality of the psychiatrist.

QUESTION:

Where lies the flaw in psychiatry/psychiatric methods as described above by Capra?

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA - PART 2:

Page 97

Conventional psychiatry is plagued by a confusion that lies at the very center of the conceptual problems of all modern, scientific medicine: the confusion between disease process and disease origins. Instead of asking why a mental illness occurs, medical researchers try to understand the biological mechanism through which the disease operates. These mechanisms, rather than the true origins, are seen as the causes of the illness. Accordingly, most current psychiatric treatments are limited to suppressing symptoms with psychoactive drugs. Although they have been very successful in doing so, this approach has not helped psychiatrists understand mental illness any better, nor has it allowed their patients to solve the underlying problems.

QUESTION:

What is meant by the biological basis of a mental illness?
