If this is the Paranormal Phenomena section, why do questions about religion keep getting posted?

What is with all the questions about the bible, and questioning the beliefs of other religions? I mean, is this person trying to make some sort of point or what?
I think that you either believe in the paranormal or you don’t, and if your belief is based upon your religion, well good for you. Just don’t understand why someone looks to be going after people who don’t follow their religion, like who cares?

  1. Regarding the individual in question, only that person can answer. But as a general answer, this may be the most abused category in Yahoo Answers. It was put here in the Sci & Math category for scientific Q&A on the paranormal, but it is widely abused for sharing mystical ideas with no regard for science. Then that led to religious questions, as if a Religion & Spirituality category didn’t exist (it does). Last time we had religion and science blended together, it was called the Dark Ages :) Let’s not go there again.

  2. I doubt that person, or her buddy, if they are two separate people, not the same person with two accounts will answer this question. From her questions though, seems that people in religions other than hers really bug her. Just report the questions, since they’re in the wrong section anyway and maybe Y!A will finally get the hint and delete her questions. If she keeps it up, keep reporting and they’ll delete her. Doubt anyone will miss her, or her buddy anyway.

  3. There is a very fine line when it comes to religion and paranormal. Most paranormal beliefs are faith based, as are religious beliefs.
    This section is also very weird in the sense that its in the science and math section, and many people asking questions specifically ask for people who are going to answer with logic or science not to bother answering the question.

  4. If the questions aren’t fitting to the science math category, than the responsibility lies with Y/A to find a better match. Since the paranormal relates to matters spiritual, i.e. ghosts, demons, etc., there is a great overlap between the paranormal and the religious. For instance, demons are the enemy in religious spiritual warfare. As far as logic goes, logic only goes so far. Some things are just beyond the scope of standard science, at least right now.

  5. What’s the matter…can’t come out and call us by our names? Afraid of being reported for calling out? How lame. As for religious questions being posted in here,it’s only been twice for me,and I don’t kno about anyone else & don’t care. religion and spiritual/paranormal phenomena go hand in hand in my opinion. How is it right for witches & wiccans to post in here-THAT is ALSO a religion! And as for me questioning other religions,it’s out of curiosity to better understand.I judge NOONE,whereas you are CONSTANTLY judging me.Oh,and there is no point I’m trying to make.This section is about paranormal stuff.If you want science go back to science & mathematics.In my opinion YOU are in the wrong section!

  6. When I post an answer, my information comes from personal experience, or a topic I’ve researched for my own interest. I certainly don’t give answers taken directly from those ghost hunting tv shows, or proclaim that the psychics they use are the most knowledgeable on the subject of the paranormal. My spiritual beliefs have been attacked by a few, and to me, that is their own personal mental problem. Perhaps some therapy will make them less biased and more willing to be open minded to people who don’t believe as they do, but I doubt it. Then again, what does my religion have to do with the answer I give anyway, why does it matter?


  7. I think paranormal and religious beliefs can be intermingled.

    The weather is nice and I want you to jam it(see video before judgement on this statement XD)

  8. Have you noticed that the question you wish to post doesn’t automatically go to the area you wish it to be in- you have to take it by the hand and place it where you want it, or it may end up in automotive, gardening, what-not. The Yamster has a lot on its plate. Not all qweries appear in their proper section due to the asker not being more careful.

  9. Did you know-psychiatrists have the largest crime rate? They have the highest rate of commiting rape, murder, assault, fraud, drug dealing and so on of all the medical professions. You can do some reading online and see all the fraud and non proven claims about drugs too. Some docs even get grants of millions from drug companies. That’s not fair research. Prozac is shown no better than a placebo lately.

    Psychiatrists claim that a person needs a drug to combat their chemical imbalance in the brain which is causing a persons mental disorder. However, the concept that a brain-based, chemical imbalance underlies mental illness is false. While popularized by heavy public marketing, it is simply psychiatric wishful thinking. As with all of psychiatric disease models, it has been thoroughly discredited by researchers.

    Diabetes is a biochemical imbalance. However, as Harvard psychiatrist Joseph Glenmullen states, the definitive test and biochemical imbalance is a high blood sugar balance level. Treatment in severe cases is insulin injections, which restore sugar balance. The symptoms clear and retest shows the blood sugar is normal. Psychiatrists do not draw blood to determine the presence of a biochemical imbalance in patients.

    Bad past/putdowns,rejection/father gone lets other things start. Anorexia, cutting, OCD, anxiety, panic attacks, hearing voices, psychic dreams can all come from a tramautic past and verbal abuse. Its opens doors to the negative and they start to dwell closeby. They have problems not you. Its the hurting mean people that have caused your sadness. You are just reacting to it and having emotions. God allows emotions and docs try to cover it up.

    Mens counseling is folly to Gods ways.

    1. Read “Emotional abuse” websites see how people think. Read about 40.
    2. Google “Deliverance Prayers”- stops sadness.
