RELIGION, MENTAL STATUS, AND PROPHECY
Neologisms are hallmarks of schizophrenia.
New religious beliefs are common in schizophrenia.
Hallucinations are common in schizophrenia.
Revelations are the hallmarks of new religions.
Paranoias are the hallmarks of schizophrenia.
Punishments are the hallmarks of new religions.
Florid schizophrenics create new religions through neologism and
Hallucinations become revelations from the ‘Unknown’ — God.
Paranoias, the fear of the unknown transforms into
Punishments for transgressions by the ‘Unknown’ — God.
Could prophets be, untreated schizophrenics
Especially when schizophrenia afflicts one percent of humans?
Could anointed by the ‘Unknown’ — God — be really
Afflicted by the unknown — Schizophrenia?
