OK, we've established that many (most?) mind scientists are political shills. Cry

Let's talk about ADHD and how mind scientists discovered, scientifically, that it wasn't a moral weakness, but was in fact a "mental disorder".


Ok, go ahead.

You can get technically specific and use Doctoral level language, it would be good in fact if you did. Thanks.


You always misinterpret when I do, though.  I use a term such as "reward" in the very specific way that  mind scientists use it and take it for its broad meaning to a layperson and ridicule it.  I don't know if you're really misunderstanding or just pretending to.

I've made my position clear.

You claim that ADHD is a mental disorder discovered by scientific methods (although mind scientists first identified it as a moral failing).

Go ahead and explain the science behind ADHD.

Use scientific language at a Doctoral level, thanks.

I already did, months ago.

That's right, you said that mind scientists observed a variety of fairly normal human behaviors and decided they were all caused by a particular mental disorder and gave the disorder a label, ADHD... And its proven to be a real mental disorder because the people who exhibit the behaviors have it. Cheesy

No, that's what you said.

Question, Jeff:

Did Jack the Ripper have a mental disorder?

He was evil. If what they say he did is true, he was an animal. At the minimum, he had some severe moral failings.

So, yes or no whether Jack the Ripper had a mental disorder?

If you don't know the answer, Jeff, you are alone on this forum and maybe in the world.

You're the mind scientist Red, you tell me. What exactly was wrong with which parts of Jack's mind? Use technical scientific language, thanks.

Jack perhaps lacked any sense of morality... That's what I think.

Does mind science recognize that as a mental disorder? Would you label the disorder and explain what part of his mind was affected? Thanks.

I know, that's a tall order... Mind science has no idea where the moral sense is located in the mind, or any clue about what it is or how it might operate.

Probably it's best to pretend humans are amoral and everything is either a brain structure phenomena or something to do with chemicals. Grin

Quote:
Eleven separate murders, stretching from 3 April 1888 to 13 February 1891, were included in a London Metropolitan Police Service investigation and were known collectively in the police docket as the "Whitechapel murders".[8][9] Opinions vary as to whether these murders should be linked to the same culprit, but five of the eleven Whitechapel murders, known as the "canonical five", are widely believed to be the work of Jack the Ripper.[10] Most experts point to deep throat slashes, abdominal and genital-area mutilation, removal of internal organs, and progressive facial mutilations as the distinctive features of the Ripper's modus operandi.[11]


Nah, you're right.  Seems like a perfectly normal guy who's just got an evil streak.

Maybe he played hooky from Sunday School too often . . .
