    Bokoo!

    I too was joking, I just did not put a smily, smiley behind the words.
    I think many have a difficult time recognizing when I'm being humorous yet, I do laugh a lot....

    especially at myself
    cause even in my joking...i can be dead serious :qqb005:

    I prolly COULD point to some correlations between "religion" and "schizophrenia", yet, I'm with you on this one for now...

    jokee joke :grin:

    :hearts2:

    One is a belief based on faith. The other is a diagnosible chemical imbalance in the brain

    they both hear voices and see visions. they talk to people that the rest of us cannot see.
    perhaps schizophrenia is the basis for religious belief in the west?
