i love how his mother, supported him aswell, i also struggle almost the similar thing, with religion, keep watching videos on Athiest and Christians, trying to explain to people but we have to practice what we preach..now i know Jesus is Everything, he will save us, and we have to believe in our selves.

I just got into podcast yesterday and this is one of the first podcast I listen to. Wow. Mind blowing. Mom's love though, unconditional love towards her children no matter how skewed they are. Thanks for the podcast.

I'm in the medical field and have taken care of multiple religious schizophrenics and AJ pound for pound shows ALL the similar world views/egocentrism even their smug cadence of voice.

Charles X Him saying these things to a 14 year old is wrong and makes him a sick person for sure. however, rfid chips and bio technology is actually a real thing. I don't understand doctors that are so quick to say individuals are schizophrenic just because they believe in things (that exist) that aren't yet popular. Hasn't science/technology figured out how read minds? I thought I read something about that somewhere. You're a doctor. Is that true? I hope that sort of technology doesn't end up in the wrong hands if it is. Lol sheesh.

(1) I hope the lad finds wholeness. (2) What is worst - a cult person telling one he is special or a therapist saying you are not special, there is no meaning in life and you are a mass of cells worth $9.64. Maybe the combination. This sounds like the transition from school to work. (3) What will be the next Christian story - the Westboro Church?
