Re: LaVeyan Satanism and Carvaka.
It is of interest to me that many of the "mentaly ill" in Abrahamic culture associate them selves with either being Jesus or the Antichrist. The very doctrine leads to the internment of these future light bringers.
An interesting point you bring up. I was going to post a thread about a friend of mine who is going through a bad mental time right now, and was recently admitted to hospital to deal with a bad episode of mania. She's been very religious all her life, and is what you'd probably call an orthodox Christian. I'm trying to keep an eye on her with emails and text messages, and I'm rather alarmed to hear she keeps talking about having "conversations" with Jesus and God. Somehow I don't get the feeling she means just ordinary prayer.
This is obviously just a minor example I'm sharing. There have been much worse examples than this where mental illness is able to reach out on a communal scale and affect many lives. One calls to mind the Jonestown Massacre, for instance.
