I missed that part. If they're from the Congo I'm surprised they didn't outright kill her. People down there take what we would jokingly call evil every seriously. they'll kill you if you hit someone with you car, because you're probably a

penis-stealing demon.

Sorry, belief system. Not religion. I need to self edit.

Honestly. I think a babylon 5 season 1 episode put it best.

You can find it on the WB channel's streaming website.

At the end, Sinclair introduced the ambassadors to the Earth's belief system. First was an Atheist he shook hands with. As the ambassadors shook hands with that one, Sinclair announced all the rest of the religions. There was a very long line as the credits came up.

Psycat: Kali-Yuga: Psycat: Too bad we can't convince these people that an IQ in the double digits was a sure sign of demonic possession...

They're religious, a double digit IQ is almost a prerequisite.

If every religious nut around the world who believed in demonic possession were convinced that stupidity was a sure sign of possession of the grand demon, Stupefactus Maximus, and that the only way to counteract Stupefactus Maximus was to read books by Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion), Carl Sagan (The Demon-Haunted World), and Bertrand Russell (Why I Am Not a Christian), it might be the magic bullet that rids the world of religious possession...


Oh look, another snobby atheist who thinks their better than everyone else because of their beliefs.

It's not just animists, either. Here's a photo of the aftermath of the self-immolation of the Ugandan Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments, a splinter Catholic group. I was going to post it directly to Fark, but it's pretty sickening...

You've been warned.

Funny, you never hear about the "Demons stole my penis" and "Gerbils tore my anus" editions of Man's Life.

I've been told that exorcism is in the same field as multiple personality disorder. Treating people as possessed or as MPD reinforces the condition and basically rewards the undesired behavior.

That being said, IANA psychological therapist, so I don't know what the proper response is to such behavior. But I suspect treatment is mostly "treat them as the normal person" and "treat the alt as if it was the normal" until they stopped reaching for the alt.

I've read too much economics and I see a lot of psychological mumbo jumbo torn down to a reward structure. If you treat a condition by paying it more attention and the condition is essentially "attention whore" then you're rewarding the condition in traditional treatments. An economic aspect to human psychology is basically "suck it up" and is a rather rough method that doesn't approach genuine problems.

I know right? Exorcisms don't work on witches.

When I was married, I had a nephew-in-law whose nickname was 'Demon'. He probably could have benefited from an exorcism...
