Cut the Cocoon

One of the things God really hates is Twitter. He hates it because it's ugly and nasty. What do you expect the true voices of the marginalized to sound like, puppies and rainbows? The whole thrust of Judeo-Christian religion involved telling those on the bottom the...

No Goodness, No Hope

It seems that society has shifted where you used to have to give an answer for the hope that was in you (1 Peter 3:15) where now it's expected of you that you give an answer for the hope you don't have. For me there is a real good reason for this because I have a...

Is Man Basically Good?

I've gotten a lot of flack from liberals for not believing man is basically good. My experience has shown that a good portion of people are shitty when you need them most. Of course with all my pathologies I'm not one that generally attracts good people in the first...

The Opposite of a Christian

The opposite of a Christian is not an atheist, it is someone with mental illness. Christianity posits that you can trust your inner voice, mental illness demonstrates that you can't. People say "God" tells you things that are outside the scope of what you could come...

Imperative to Virtue and Hope

Religion has an imperative to virtue so when it tells you to hope it presupposes that there will be a supportive community rallying behind you. Modern psychology tells you not to lose hope but for different reasons. When there is no hope that means there needs to be...

Advice for Christians Evangelizing Millennials

If you are trying to get people to be Christian the first thing I would say is do a gut check. How much are you willing to be inconvenienced in order to reach people? This is because none of the easy things people do to evangelize (like going on TV) work any more. You...

Tips for Improving Diversity

As an individual with a visible physical disability (some visual impairment) who has some autistic spectrum tendencies (though not diagnosed) I am an outcast most places I go. I am trying to improve myself to be less of one but here are some tips for groups that want...

Mental Illness and Christianity

Pastors have told me that mental illness is one of the worst things for the faith. I agree with them because that is largely how I lost mine. Engaging with the supernatural and psychosis are often indistinguishable from each other. You could argue that the...

Why?

Christians romanticize suffering which often results in mental illness which often makes people emotionally stunted. Of course Christianity is mostly engaged on the seat of the emotion. So these people are basically romanticizing something that kills faith...

The prosperity gospel is hard to swallow but this twitter feed makes it easier.

Both Sides

Ratchet

Things in modern life works like a ratchet. It only turns one way. I volunteer and get next to nothing for it, not a scrap of social capital to be accepted and included with people who could lift me from my sorry state. Then due to my disability I take from the...

Dismiss

One of the must gut-wrenching things modern psychology does is dismiss that which it pathologizes. For example, let's say you're lonely and you miss someone so bad it is occupying your mind too much. Modern psychology posits that you are failing to live up to their...

Modern Psychology’s Most Powerful Side

On balance for the average person modern psychology does more harm than good. This is because the facets of modern psychology that do harm are free and pervasive while the ones that help are expensive. This makes the poor disadvantaged in a way that not many people...

Peak Happiness

A lot of life is a trade off. A lot of it is a zero sum game between you and others' happiness. People would agree that ideally we'd want peak happiness. But in order to achieve that we would have to efficiently balance the trade off between what makes us happy verses...

Modern Psychology and Men

It is heartbreaking to see the rise of deaths of despair by men without college degrees who just can't hack it in our modern system. Psychology claims to have the solution and I think it can be of limited help but there is something intractable about men's problems...

Agency

Those in power like to psychologize situations to give those in powerless situations the illusion of agency. For example saying a person isn't finding a job because they have a bad attitude. This is pinning something out of their control (finding a job) on them to...

Empathy Article

Empathy is on the decline. This may not be as bad as it sounds When we feel empathy, we typically give power to another person or institution. We identify with — and internalize — their point of view. In extreme cases, this can lead to the kind of loss of self we...
