|He probably believes witches can turn a man into a bird or that ghosts exist. Pretty easy to do after one accepts religious parables and myths as facts.|
Back when I was medical school faculty in psychiatry I co-led a "Religion and Psychiatry" seminar.
One main goal was to teach the medical students that being religious was not actually insane.
I would tell each new group, "Believing ghosts are real is not insane. Believing you see ghosts is insane."
