Establishing clearly that there is no scientific test for any mental diagnosis, Jon Rappoport concludes this essay with:
I don’t care what they say. I don’t care what the consensus is. You want to play the game called science? You play by the rules of the scientific method. Otherwise, get out and play another game. Read tea leaves in restaurants. Buy a Ouija board. Interpret the wrinkles on an elephant.
Or just admit you’re doing preliminary research and haven’t found your way.
But don’t push people around with the claim that you’re engaged in science. You’re peddling snake oil, and anyone with a few active brain cells to rub together can see it.
