Said it before and I'll say it again. Religion is a mental disorder. We sugarcoat it by calling it a dillusion, but that barely scratches the surface.
I don't think it is a sugar coating at all. In fact, I've gotten a great deal of shit for calling it that.
A delusion is a belief that does not corresponds to reality and is resistant to evidence.
Religion meets those criteria. It is a socially acceptable and encouraged delusion, but just a delusion.
It isn't physical, or chemical, or a psychosis....so no other mental disorders match up. Other mental disorders often result in delusions....therefore there's a link.
Wheras Aspergers and Autism have a correlation link to Atheism( and of all things...being a rail fan). I don't understand why, but the correlation exists.
