Scott,
You wrote,[...God has given..many gifts...I believe that the invention of psychotropic drugs is one such gift...]
I am unsure as to what you wrote includes or not. If you could post answers to the following, then I could have the opportunity to respond accordingly.
A. Which God, if you believe that their is more than one God, are you referring to?
B. If the God that you are referring to is the God that the Jews and Christians give service and worship to, are you aquainted with what their scriptures say concerning healing and mind-altering drugs?
C. What criteria could you post here leads you to believing that psychotropic drugs are a gift from the God that you are referring to?
D. Are all psychotropic drugs in your belief a gift from the God that you are referring to including the ones that have been removed from the market because they cause death?
E. Other questions not stated.
Lou
