All that shows is that you lied to three psychologists.
Tell me, how long did you see each of the three psychologists for?
Indeed... at *least* 3.

Of course, his entire story is more likely a pure lie, written to try to get sympathy.

I did lie to get it! Think about it, I fooled three psychologists!
I've known them for a long time, they are friends and peers.
Do you need a paper too?
SMile.
Your entire story smacks of a flat lie.

It's how you True Believers™ operate-- by telling (and repeating) lies.

Thanks for playing.

The position of the atheist is that the theist has not successfully met his or her burden of proof.
The burden of proof with regard to gods rests solely with the side claiming their existence.
They've convinced themselves that atheism means absolute certainty that no gods exist, they reason that to be absolutely certain without proof is a form of faith.
Atheism is not about certainty at all; it is about doubt.

Ask your family and friends if they think YOU need a paper validating your sanity.

SMile.
Witness the hate speech of the True Believer™.

And finally, we see the *real* motive for his fictional story about psychiatrists-- so he could belittle others.

Was he immoral? He certainly only liked girls, wasn't that type of cat. He liked a good fight with other toms though, which is how they catch it.
Was God punishing him, vomiting blood on his last day? Or maybe punishing me, because his death nearly killed me too.
I'm so sorry you lost your friend like that.

I lost a tom in exactly the same way, many years back. I still sometimes wake up and miss him even now.

<quoted text>It relies too much on opinion, and not enough on objectivity.

Since it's really not ethical to actually experiment on humans (as would be required to achieve objective observations)?

They must rely on reports from the people involved (those being studied). And that is simply unreliable.
Hm.

As a science I think it can be objective, however, I agree that as a study it can be unreliable.

The variable depends on the honesty of the people involved and a psychologist's ability to remain unattached and neutral.

So you work exclusively with Genuine Christians™?

Or do you also work with Genuine Muslims™?

Or would that offend your sense of ethics?

Actually?

There are many excellent reasons why it's cheaper to pay for free contraceptives, than to pay for unwanted babies later.

And worse-- to pay for the crimes that kids who grow up unwanted typically commit.

A condom costs a few cents.

The crimes committed by an unwanted teen living on the streets, is beyond measure--if people are killed in the process.

Your shortsighted and selfish idiocy is also without limit.

Unless you post specifics with validation, your claim is meaningless.
<quoted text>
My article is replete with referenced sources. Yours has absolutely none.
<quoted text>
Again, your unsupported opinion denying the sourced claim otherwise that I posted.
Moreover, your argument is incredibly poor. A vow of monogamy is certainly more serious than a 'choice'.
To top that off, you try to assert that unmarried people are more monogamous than married people. Not just illogical, but unsupported.
<quoted text>
"Wow and others" is your source of rebuttal??? You must have missed that the last sentence of the first paragraph referenced procreation as the major purpose of marriage.
<quoted text>
Laughable since your rebuttal amounted to less than a just 'wrong' would have.
Here is why:
Once again you exposed your lack of knowledge about the social sciences (Remember your, "Science has nothing to do with marriage").
I have no problem with someone who doesn't know everything. I do have a problem with someone with arrogance that falsely pretends otherwise.
I would suggest you refresh your understanding of evolution, and most certainly educate yourself about mating behavior before you continue in this discussion.
Additionally, I am always amazed that I know more about sexual issues related to orientation than anyone I debate with on these sites. Isn't it interesting that someone who is so defined by their sexuality understands so little about it???
KiMare is starting to blather on incessantly, when all that was really necessary was the standard Christian response of:

<Kimare> "...NUH UH!..."

You are, of course, correct.

I am likely too hard on the subject. It comes from seeing so much corruption in these "studies" and wasted resources.

Why do you want to know?

Do you think(?) that telling us you got your friends to sign papers relating to your sanity, gives you credibility?

Christian psychologists are not objective.

Have you seen objective professionals and received treatment?

I'm thinking you haven't, as you admitted to having lied to them, just like you lie here, daily.
