I do not mean birds; that would be abusive use of the term. Voters should exercise their discretion when deciding if my use of the term dinosaur or human becomes abusive.

OK, Psychiatrist is the one who's specializing in diagnosis and treatment for mental illness. Meanwhile, Psychologist deals with diagnosing and treating diseases of the brain, emotional disturbance, and behavior problems. Which is, both of them deals with people who has mental illnesses.

Jellon
TittySprinkler69

Abiogenesis is the natural process of life arising from non-living matter such as simple organic compounds. Pro must show that I.D. is a more likely cause than Abiogenesis for the origin of life.
