from several kinds of somatoform disorders.
In at least one case the disorder probably wasn't somatoform. One person now has a hearing aid, but the question remains: What caused the loss of hearing that correlated with the story of sonic attacks? And was that person one of those who heard the weird noise or one of those who didn't?
"Stupidity renders itself invisible by assuming very large proportions. Completely unreasonable claims are irrefutable. Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
"The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions." K. Marx
