  •  Not condemning torture is crazy (0+ / 0-)

    There is nothing that says psychology is a science in your quote. That scientists who are not psychologists, study human behavior doesn't make psychology a science....

    Coginitve theory and Behaviorism for example are Psychological "theories"....that are diametrically opposed. That should tell you something about the state of psychology. I don't have to quote anyone. I am a source.

    The fact the APA has not condemned torture tells you something about the willingness of it's members to embrace contradiction and pretense in favor of truth for reasons of profit, power and fame.

    The APA as it nows stands is an organization that aids fascism.

    Any fool knows that torturing another living being is madness. There is nothing political about it, unless you accept that politicians are mad or that politics is mad.

    Psychology is not a negative field. It's an immature field. One that has not developed much in the last 100 years.

    It's very hard for people to study other people. There's too much prejudice involved for one thing. There are many other things that make it difficult.

    One of the other things is humans generally don't want to know the truth about what they are. And what they are, are very vulnerable beings not central to the universe, that die just like other beings.

    Anyway....maybe the APA is a little NUTS....I mean...not codemning torture?

    That's crazy.
