Ahh that makes since then if that was the intent of the poster. Otherwise I was getting search results about Anime studio and something to do with geology which might just be way more interesting than watching misguided sheep argue over who's fairy tales are more important and who's version of them are more right from their imaginary made up friends. coopdevil

For my part, all I'll say here is, I think bigotry and mass hysteria are much greater threats to our way of life than Muslim fanaticism.

Not even close.

The amount of deaths and property damage caused by bigotry and mass hysteria pales in comparison to that caused by Islam.

Bigotry and mass hysteria is not an organized group carrying out murder and destruction on a world wide scale.

Islam is.

Yet Islam and Muslim fanaticism are bigotry and mass hysteria.

Well, I did say it was "all" I would say. We were canvased for our opinions on the original question. Are you looking for me to clarify and expand upon my view, or to defend it? It might suffice to say I think Magister Phineas is wrong.

ETA: As always, I am willing to clarify my views, but I don't consider a BBS to be the appropriate place to defend them, nor do I consider anonymous strangers on the internet to be an audience to whom I really need to prove anything. I will only clarify if I'm asked by someone I think genuinely wants to talk about reasons, and isn't just looking for an opportunity to grandstand. (I should put this in my SIG. It's becoming my standard disclaimer.)

Magister Phineas is absolutely correct, and his comment is backed by the empirical evidence of the last forty years.

Most bigots and mass hysterics are not murderers and terrorists. Being one does not necessarily lead to the other.

Islam is unique in that it is a religion of bigots and mass hysterics, and they have chosen the path of terrorism and murder.

Other religious bigots and mass hysterics are not doing that.

I assure you, Magister Phineas, when your opinion of my opinion matters to me, I'll ask you for it.

If you can't handle the heat.....

Perhaps you should retreat to that academic playpen you reside in, and take a time out.

One is not necessarily the other, but all are subsets of the same old disease. One might say that while Muslim fanatics from abroad are the greater threat to our lives, the local Christian fanatics are the greater threat to our way of life. The problem with that statement is that one's way of life comes to an abrupt end when one's life is ended. But it's also dangerous to discount the life-threatening danger of our own homegrown fanatics, be they local Christians, Muslims or some deranged Crowley nut. That said we need to keep perspective on the great skew on the graph: It's the Muslim extremists within our nation that concern me most, and the Christian extremists outside it that concern me least.

But seriously. Fuck every last degenerate breed and berth of them.

Actually in the 1980's psychologists have abandoned that term and replaced it with various other terms. And in 1980 American Psychiatric Association officially changed the diagnosis to "conversion disorder". So it makes you even wonder just what the heck is "mass hysteria" to begin with?

Well here seems to be what psychologist Marc D. Feldman thinks: http://www.selfhelpmagazine.com/article/mass-hysteria

Though "mass hysteria" can be used to manipulate the masses it does no damage in of itself. Mixing the mass hysteria with religious fanaticism can be very dangerous and cause such death and destruction as the attacks on 9/11 did. So I do think that such things mixed with the fanaticism of religious belief causes a whole lot of blood shed. But it is the mixture of such that does and is not just 1 thing in of itself.

This is just my opinion.

I wasn't using the term in a clinical sense. I meant collective actions undertaken by the willfully uninformed ("All I need to know", etc.), motivated by fear and hatred, absolved of responsibility by opportunistic demagogues.

I see.

Well the clinical term certainly meets the criteria as part of the religious fanatical terrorists.

Sorry I misunderstood you. I have been studying psychology a lot lately.
