Schizophrenia is normally associated with the inability to separate fantasy from reality. That's why when people have voices in their heads that they believe are real, it's a sign of schizophrenia. Multiple personality disorder, which is now referred to as Dissociative Identity Disorder, is (typically) when people use multiple personalities to suppress their past. These are two different things entirely and shouldn't be confused.

Sweet quiz - took me until Obama to realize "April Fools day" Note - Even if, for some unknown reasons our brains did evolve (which they would not) to use 10% the law of atrophy states we wouldn't maintain the excess capacity. The kernel behind this mis-truth is at any given time we use about 6-14% of our brains, this is accurate, one's brain cannot process so many different types of data simultaneously. However to say we only use 10% is silly, this is like saying a Porsche Boxster only uses 10% of its capacity just because it isn't going 160MPH, with the anti-lock brakes locked, air bags deployed, rear defroster on, and the heat and air blow, simultaneously full blast.

NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. The amount of mercury (which is used in the process of creating the vaccine and then removed before ever being given) is far less than environmental mercury. You'll get more mercury eating a tuna sandwich. The only "study" linking vaccines to autism was retracted when the author admitted to falsifying data. PLEASE, stop spreading these lies.

What I'm interested in is that some people correcting the Obama question apparently think that the country President Obama was born in is "Hawaii". Erm, he was born in the country called The United States. To some people shouting "It's April Fools!", no doubt some people who did not get that at first, like me got this quiz as a random selection. Once I "got" it, I was really pleased I'd got to play it, as I might not have selected April Fools Quiz to play based on its tite.

You know... I know it's an April Fools and all... but some of these questions were in very poor taste. The one that hit particularly close to home was the one saying autism(and subdivisions such as Aspergers Syndrome)is caused by vaccines. I know it's not true, but it's hardly amusing for somebody with Aspergers to see that. I know it's a joke. I know it's supposed to be funny. Most of them were funny. That one... I just don't like it. It's killing people and it's twisting minds. True or false(FALSE!), I don't think it should be here. That's just my opinion. ASPIES UNITE!

People who believe that vaccines cause autism should be mocked and this quiz could be seen as doing just that.
+1
level 50
Jun 4, 2015
I wouldn't go so far as to say they should be mocked. The start of the whole "vaccines cause autism" argument started with a scientific paper from way back when. (Heck if I remember what year) It was only after several decades when scientists tested and confirmed that there was no connection before the author of the paper admitted that he'd used made up data. However, the story probably didn't get as much attention as it should've. As a result, a lot of people who had believed the initial claim either weren't informed, or were simply reluctant to accept the paradigm shift. Either way, mocking them is hardly an appropriate reaction.

surely mocking somebody is one of the worst ways in trying to convince somebody that their point of view is incorrect.
+1
level 77
Apr 1, 2018
I've seen it work before. But it's not always about convincing that one person as much as it is about convincing everyone else witnessing the mockery. If you take people with insane, harmful ideas seriously you are going to confuse some in the audience into thinking that they might have a point. People with bad ideas use this technique all the time to prop themselves up. Put a science denier on stage next to climate scientist or an evolutionary biologist, and some in the audience are going to be confused into thinking that the two positions are roughly equal. Put some religious apologist or Deepak Chopra or some other peddler of woo woo on a televised debate with a rational skeptic or an actual physicist, same result. Mocking the person with the poor argument might not be the most scholarly thing to do, and isn't the most effective way of convincing rational people, but it is actually highly effective for the general public who are not rational at all.

^ this is kinda my point regarding religious education in schools which we commented on in one of the religious quizzes, or maybe the stupid beliefs quiz - teaching religious studies in the same setting as maths, science, etc is going to encourage them to view it as factually equivalent to those subjects.

I get that it can be useful to understand other cultures, etc but think it would need to be handled very carefully and would be impossible to ensure that all of the teachers were presenting the subject appropriately

roley: but that's not how a comparative religion course would be properly taught. It would not present any of the stories of the religions as fact (or shouldn't- I did comment it might be hard to find impartial teachers some places), and, actually, since all the many different religious beliefs around the world are contradictory and mutually exclusive, most people who have been exposed to such courses tend to believe in religion less, not more.

You're not putting Jesus up next to Newton and Einstein... you're putting Jesus up next to Buddha and Muhammad. And that's entirely appropriate.
+1
level 73
Oct 24, 2019
I have no problem with adults learning more about other cultures including, if they choose to, religious beliefs and how they have shaped different societies, in fact I think that should be encouraged. But grade school is young kids right? And we are talking about compulsory education?

Putting Jesus & Pals up next to Newton and Einstein is exactly what you would be doing - granted it wouldn't be directly in the same class, but it is still within the same formal structure of the same institution by the same group of authoritative figures and the veracity of the various subjects is going to become conflated in the minds of many of the students.
+1
level 73
Oct 24, 2019
Sure, the various religions of the world contradict each other. But Christianity contradicts itself (I expect the same is true of most / all religions) and that hasn't stopped it from recruiting a huge number of people into its ranks.

I hope you are right that such courses, taught properly, actually turn people off of becoming religious, but (as we've already said a couple of times now) it would be difficult to find impartial teachers in many places, probably even impossible

I hate how parents would rather see their children die from diseases than be autistic, it sickens me.
+2
level 76
Apr 1, 2017
I agree with Smartcookie. It's certainly no joke, and a better question could be found. Kalbahamut, show some compassion. For a time, parents of autistic children were made to feel they were to blame by having had their children vaccinated. It's not the vaccines that were thought to be at fault anyway, but the chemicals used in the solution. Until further research disproved that, parents didn't know for certain. Haggy99, no parent would rather see their child die than be autistic. They want to do the best thing for their child, but sometimes they just don't know what to believe with all the "experts" saying different things. "It's genetic, it's environmental, it's a combination, blah, blah, blah." I have a beautiful, smart, autistic granddaughter. Her parents certainly don't need others mocking them or blaming them for what they do or don't do. (Yes, they vaccinated both of their children, but others still tell them to change her diet, change her exercise, etc) Everyone is an expert.

And while they may not cause autism vaccines have been definitively proven to have some unfortunate (though not necessarily life-changing) side effects. Also bear in mind that the vaccines for flu etc change every year so it is possible that the vaccine for one year could have caused autism whereas the vaccine for another did not. Theres too much we don't know. However, I would personally take the risk and get vaccinated. There's nothing really wrong with being autistic. Several of my friends are. There's just a certain stigma surrounding autism that makes people think it's a massive problem in those people's lives.
+1
level 71
Apr 1, 2019
I don't see it as being used as a joke. It's being used in satire to show that a lot of harm is being done by not vaccinating, and by using money and resources to spread the vaccine lie instead of spending it on REAL treatment for autism. Making biting social commentary is a valid and important way to bring issues to the fore; I don't see it as disrespectful to anyone except anti-vaxxers.

Since he was born of an American mother he is a natural born citizen and could have been born in outer space -- it wouldn't have changed a thing. The whole argument was ridiculous before and is stupid now. He's out of the White House and that's all that matters.

Well first off very few people believe he was born in Kenya, they mostly believe that he was born in Hawaii before it became a state. Secondly, if that is true and can be proven (forgive me I don't know all of the rules) the argument is that every executive decision he signed would be nullified which would save a lot of time for the right. Thirdly THIS IS AN APRIL FOOLS QUIZ IT IS ALL FAKE QUESTIONS!

Obama was born in 1961 or 1962 (can't remember at the moment). Hawaii became a State in 1959. Therefore, Obama was born in the United States. Though, as a previous comment pointed out, as his mother was an American Citizen, he would have been a natural born American, regardless of where he was born.

That might be the reason why at least some people don't get the quiz, as April Fool's is only celebrated in certain parts of the world. I have a friend who only moved to America in the last year, and she had never heard of April Fool's before. So some people who are angry about the quiz answers being wrong might just not recognize the significance of the day on which it was featured. That being said, this quiz is hilarious, and the comments even more so!

You don't even know your religion! The Immaculate Conception refers to the Virgin Mary having been born without original sin. You (and many others) obviously confuse this with the virgin birth of Jesus.
+4
level 61
Apr 2, 2017
Mike B. is correct. I was raised in a very Catholic household and very Catholic schools. The Immaculate Conception refers to the belief that Jesus's mother Mary was conceived "with an immaculate soul" by her mother, St. Anne. Mary was born without sin, which is why she is always depicted with blue (for purity) and Jesus with red (for his blood sacrifice). The conception of Jesus by Mary is the Virgin Birth. It's not the same as the Immaculate Conception at all. The quiz is not suggesting Christianity is silly. It is poking fun at the many people who wrongly think the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Birth are the same.

I think this quiz is based on things that people have been led to believe at some point, whether from April fools jokes or otherwise.

It is what it is, probably not meant to be funny, though lighthearted, just stating these inaccurate beliefs. It is a shame some people seem to have misunderstood or even taken offence.

I get that people confuse the term Immaculate Conception for when Jesus was conceived (when in fact it refers to Mary being conceived free from Original Sin in Catholic dogma), but even more basic than that is the fact that conception and birth are not the same, people. I think the question would be better stated, "Whose birth was a result of the "immaculate conception"? and not as it is currently stated because no one's birth is known as conception- conception is not birth for those of you unacquainted with the birds and the bees. And if that is the confusion meant to be illustrated by the April Fools Quiz then it is less clever than it could be.
