Hello William,

My interests are facts, and theories which might explain those
facts, bearing in mind that no theory can be `proven': a viable
theory merely fits all the presently known facts - without
omission.

Representative facts about psychiatry and the behaviour of
psychiatrists are at:

and at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosenhan_experiment

So, after presenting the known facts and personal theoretical
conclusions (if any), any arguments with those whose over-riding
beliefs compel them to ignore or misrepresent known facts would
be non-productive - as expressed here:

BTW - will admit to the occasional provocative presentation, to
flush out 'skepti-bunkers' and 'true believers' alike.
