    O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.(I Timothy 6:20-21)As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.( I Timothy 1:3-4)I love the internet because of the open exchange of viewpoints, and the democratization of knowledge...

    People who are attracted to men have different tastes. Some think Dwayne Johnson is their perfect man, whereas others are a fan of Idris Elba or Prince William. But however unique we think we are, new research suggests we're probably wired to copy each other's preferences.
  • I Was Tortured in Gay Conversion Therapy. And It’s Still Legal in 41 States. (NYT alert)

    In the early 2000s, when I was a middle schooler in Florida, I was subjected to a trauma that was meant to erase my existence as a newly out bisexual. My parents were Southern Baptist missionaries who believed the dangerous and discredited practice of conversion therapy could “cure” my sexuality. I sat on a couch over two years and endured emotionally painful sessions with a counselor. I was told that my faith community rejected my sexuality; that I was the abomination we had heard about in Sunday school; that I was the only gay person in the world; that it...
  • Adulthood now begins at 24, say scientists as young people delay work, marriage and families

    The Telegraph (UK) ^ | January 20th, 2018 | Sarah Knapton, Science Editor
    Adulthood does not begin until 24, scientists have concluded because young people are continuing their education for longer and delaying marriage and parenthood. The traditional definition for adolescence is currently between and the ages of 10 and 19, which marked the beginnings of puberty and the perceived end of biological growth. But, writing in the Lancet Child & Adolescent Health, scientists from the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne argue the timings needs to be changed. They point to the fact that the brain continues to mature beyond the age of 20, and many people’s wisdom teeth do not come through...

Brain scans also reveal the class-B drug increases signal connectivity in regions of the brain that have previously been linked to psychosis, the research adds, which is associated with severe depression.
  • Do women want to date alpha males like Donald Trump? This matchmaker says yes

    After the election of President Donald Trump, Richard Gosse, a matchmaker of sorts, had a realization. “It dawned on me that Trump has all these qualities that women are attracted to – he’s tall, he’s older, he’s wealthy, he’s well-educated and he’s a dominant alpha male. Unfortunately, he’s also a narcissistic womanizer,” Gosse said. “I recommend women seek the opposite of Donald Trump – bachelors who are younger, shorter, poorer, less-educated and shy.” Gosse has been taking his message across California, hosting anti-Trump singles parties where he invites women to meet men who aren’t at all like the president. His...

    Was having an argument on Twitter last night regarding Dr. Bandy X. Lee from Yale and found out some data that you all may find useful. First, who is Bandy X. Lee? She is the shrink who's made appearances since the inauguration of President Trump to accuse him of being crazy. She is the tip of the "25th Amendment" spear that is currently being thrust at him. Typical of recent articles appearing in the media recently is this one from MSN: A Yale University psychiatry professor told US lawmakers that she believes Donald Trump'smental health is "unravelling" in a presentation...

    The Goldwater rule is the informal name given to Section 7 in the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) Principles of Medical Ethics[1] that states it is unethical for psychiatrists to give a professional opinion about public figures they have not examined[further explanation needed] in person, and from whom they have not obtained consent to discuss their mental health in public statements.[2] It is named after presidential candidate Barry Goldwater.[3][4] The issue arose in 1964 when Fact published the article "The Unconscious of a Conservative: A Special Issue on the Mind of Barry Goldwater".[3][5] The magazine polled psychiatrists about U.S. Senator Barry...

  • ... 'Gaming disorder' is added as a mental health condition by the World Health Organisation

    12/22/2017 3:19:51 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 38 replies
    The draft wording of its diagnostic manual says someone has a gaming disorder if ‘gaming takes precedence over other life interests’. The unhealthy behaviour will have had to continue for at least a year before diagnosis is confirmed. The agency has not listed other conditions linked to technology, such as so-called smartphone or internet addiction, due to a lack of evidence they are ‘real disorders’.  However the New Scientist quoted Vladimir Poznyak, at the WHO’s Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse as saying: ‘Health professionals need to recognise that gaming disorder may have serious health consequences. ‘Most people who...

    Minneapolis To Reduce Police Psych Testing After Screening Out Too Many Minorities Anders Hagstrom Justice Reporter 1:53 PM 12/15/2017 The city of Minneapolis may fire its police psychology evaluator because his tests screened out too many minority candidates, despite already lowering psych evaluations far below the national standard. The July police shooting of Justine Damond triggered the city to scrutinize its psychological standards for police, with many claiming they’d become lax. Psychiatrist Thomas Gratzer has run psych testing for the Minneapolis police for the past five years, and in that time, he has eliminated four of the five tests used...

    “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.” ~ Voltaire School administrators and board members terrified of expensive lawsuits are capitulating to the demands of gender confused adolescents. Parents are capitulating to the disordered thinking of their children, terrified that if they don’t, their children will commit suicide. Their fears are stoked by a deeply flawed study that is grossly misunderstood. Academia, the arts, and the professional medical and mental health communities are controlled by Leftists who affirm the nonsensical “trans” ideology. And the mainstream press—not known for deep thinking—swallows and regurgitates any Leftist nonsense that...

The study was based on data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, which collects health-related data from phone interviews. The study also says 11.1 percent of D.C. adults are what it...

The “Beautiful Trauma” singer told The People that she does not want to impose traditional gender roles on her two children, six-year-old daughter Willow and 11-month-old son Jameson. “We are a very label-less household,” the pop star said of her family with motorcycle racer Carey Hart. “Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: ‘Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’” Pink said. “And she’s like: ‘Sure...

This youtube video is about 18 minutes long and is full of insightful observations regarding the challenges business has when managing the Millennial generation. Much of what he talks about many HR people and business managers have experienced and are trying to come to not only terms with this generation, but having to teach them a lot about how the world really works. I encourage anyone who cares to watch it...watch until the very end....

    "Keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe from harm is perhaps our strongest human motivation, deeply embedded in our very DNA. It is so deep and important that it influences much of what we think and do, maybe more than we might expect. For example, over a decade now of research in political psychology consistently shows that how physically threatened or fearful a person feels is a key factor — although clearly not the only one — in whether he or she holds conservative or liberal attitudes."

    It's an elemental fact that people increasingly don't want to hear: Sex differences in personality and behavior are real. And they have a profound effect on many aspects of health. .... ...It's time for a grown-up conversation about sex. No, not that one. The other one, about the minds of men and women. Converging lines of empirical evidence—from developmental neuroscience, medical genetics, evolutionary biology, cross-cultural psychology, and new studies of transsexuality—along with our evolutionary heritage, all point to the same conclusion: There are psychological differences between men and women. And they affect matters as trivial as sensitivity to smelly socks...
