>Religious believers intuitively conceptualize deities as intentional agents with mental states who anticipate and respond to human beliefs, desires and concerns. It follows that mentalizing deficits, associated with the autistic spectrum and also commonly found in men more than in women, may undermine this intuitive support and reduce belief in a personal God.
>...it is possible that the autism spectrum is associated with interest in math, science, and engineering (IMSE), which in turn reduces religious belief.

If autistic people lack the ability to understand other people's feelings and desires, then obviously there can be no moral imperative for them to care about anyone other than themselves. If your life is based on numerical values in a graph, calculations using formulas and looking at the world through a mechanistic lense then you become sociopathic.
I've never met an autistic person that wasn't socially awkward and giving off creepy serial killer vibes.

I always get the feeling that autists are disconnected from everything that's innately human. It's like talking to a machine sometimes. A machine that only lives on stimulus from its surroundings.

There is a piece missing in their minds so obviously their behaviour is defective by nature. You can't blame them for it but you also don't have to care about them or take their wellbeing into consideration. I rarely see autistic people that treat others with dignity or have a basic understanding of compassion because it's all just repetitive rituals to them that make it easier for them to blend in.

>I believe that to understand neuronormativity, we must first understand Solipsism. Solipsism is the belief that only the self and its experiences exist. A solipsist would believe that their experiences are the only experiences, essentially reducing others and their experiences to sub-human automations.
>In my opinion, while neurotypicals have been using ideas such as theory of mind to accuse Autistics of lacking the ability to know another’s mind, neurotypicals have been so unaware of the existence of neurodivergent experience that they will inflict pain on us to “help” us conform to their standards.

You can tell that autism is a huge problem for society. The majority of autistic people have alexithymia which means they’re unable to know what feelings are and that makes them mentally unstable. If an individual with these kinds of issues gain political or monetary power it will always be disastrous. Think of it as involuntary psychopathy.

You are right in a sense that autistic people are like evil manchildren because autistic people are innately immature way past their childhood age, but when you say evil I think you mean that they are indifferent to everyone around them. A small child can pick up a kitten and play with it roughly, causing its death and then have no remorse whatsoever when the kitten died because children are naturally self-absorbed and have not really developed a sense of empathy or understanding of the world around them. Autistic people suffer from mindblindness and so their way of thinking revolves around their own needs and desires.

Evil manchild is a good description, though.

It's true, though. Small children (2-5 years old) don't cry because they killed a kitten. They cry because their parents yell at them when they get caught.

Anyone that has spent time around small children knows they cannot control their impulses and that makes them dangerous. Indirect harm is always a risk because they couldn't care less about everyone else.

Just because they havent developed greater moral awareness dosnt make them psychopathic.

Children are psychopathic but it's not malign. You can't diagnose them because their development depends on going through an overtly self-centered period in life and then shed that behaviour.

The thing about the whole situation is that it was planned. He took time and effort to find his mother's weapon and bring it to school to cause harm so it was all premeditated. That's not a crime of passion, that's calculated volition.

Exactly. A child trying to kill someone isn't based on some vengeful behaviour that is rooted deep in their mind but because of childish reasons. It's immature.

Children can't really rationalize murder in the same way adults do either. If someone calls them stupid or ugly then they just retaliate in the most primitive way possible, just like in a schoolyard fight. Children use violence all the time. They hit each other from a young age if something is displeasing to them (a brother or sister stole a toy or didn't obey their commands) but it's not malevolent. It's simply empathetic detachment and they lack everything that make it possible for humans to coexist with one another.

It's psychopathic but it's necessary.

Mahan is a tragic case. He kills a boy, sits and laughs during the trial because he is not able to comprehend the seriousness of the whole ordeal and committed suicide later as an adult. It’s like children that get molested when they’re young. They grow up and slowly develop heavy mental issues.
