Quote from: "Laser Sailor"Psychology =/= objective sciencePsychology is a soft science at best and at worst is just as wacky as religion. It is not grounded in the same objective rationality as the hard sciences such as biology and chemistry. To find pro religious sentiments in a psychology textbook would not suprise me in the least.
Quote from: "Will"I've been in your shoes. Not too long ago, I was studying psychology at a university, and I was biting my tongue every time religion was given a pass despite the fact that any objective observer could clearly see the diagnosis. Eventually, one day, I did snap and had a spirited debate with a professor. It didn't end well. I got a B in the course instead of an A, and almost sparked a riot in the classroom. There will come a day when religion will be studied objectively by all sciences, not just physics and biology. Unfortunately, it's going to take time and pressure.
Quote from: "Tokage"...religious claims can not be tested, and that in order to do so it would take a leap of faith..later on I find another paragraph that proclaims that the deeply religious led the scientific revolution, as though their religion was of some significance.
