Question by chelsea_lulu21: Is it common for mental health professionals to have a personal history of mental illness?
I know some people that work in the mental health field do have a history of mental illness, some that I have met are currently on antidepressants, but because they have their illness under control they are perfectly fine. Is this common, and if you were looking to get into a career in mental health would having a personal history of mental illness benefit you because maybe you could relate to your clients/patients better?

Best answer:

Answer by deYoung
The mental health profession has as many people with mental illness as does any other profession or the general population, for that matter.
People get into their professions for a variety of reasons – and so do mental health professionals.

Question by sephiroth1292: What is the title of a book that is a nonfiction history of the concept of fate?
Not psychological (like self-improvement or self-destiny related)
just a historical account of the the idea of fate, through literature, like ancient mythology, how the idea evolved in different cultures, how fictional characters, or in some cases, gods, controlled it, the “three fates”, all of it, rolled in between two covers.

Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt served as the head of policy at the Department of Education during the first administration of Ronald Reagan. While working there she discovered a long term strategic plan by the tax exempt foundations to transform America from a nation of rugged individualists and problem solvers to a country of servile, brainwashed minions who simply regurgitate whatever they’re told. Part one of our exclusive interview with Iserbyt breaks down how conditioning/training under a corporate agenda has replaced traditional education, leading to a deliberate dumbing down of Americans. Iserbyt further explains how Reagan signed agreements merging the US and Soviet systems under the United Nations banner, turning over education and many other areas of public policy to global control. This 74 minute exposé is a must see for anyone who wants to truly know why the education system is deliberately crafted to produce human drones with no critical thinking whose only skills are to be subservient, trust authority and follow orders.

Question by : Is religion the single largest cause of moral and scientific stagnation in history?
That is the question.
In simpler words, do you believe that religion is the largest cause of primitive morals and primitive scientific beliefs holding on for so long? Do you believe religion is the single largest cause of hatred in the human race?
As an atheist, I view religion as both good and bad. It is good for keeping people positive and happy (they feel they have something to fall back on/ someone who always loves them) as well as bad because it divides people and has obstructed the advancement of humans in so many ways – including, but not limited to, the two aforementioned ways.

Answer by Etil
We will probably never know, but religion was a large contributor. People thought that everything could be explained when you bring God into the equation.
