You could explain how it isn't.

And yet you dance just like a marionette. Amazing!
Not "a" poster, an entire category of posters.
Yep. Perfectly grammatical, standard vernacular, less typing. You object?
We have records of their poor performance and muddle-headed self justifications - we can compare it with the ones we have of doctors.
If it's not straightforward, the onus is on you.
I'm just following your lead.
Here, pull my finger.
Again, nobody's complaining but you - and others are noticing your evasion. If there's something you don't understand, ask specific questions.
Why use plural?
Its only Jeeves.
Although I guess if you drum up enough hoo haa amongst the eight or so other contributors on this forum, you may also swell the numbers with others who also subscribe to your ideology.
Look, its pretty simple. If you want an example on how discussion works, look at how I introduced the analogy of the doctor. If you don't want to clear up what you are talking about, but would rather waste time citing other people who allude to understanding what the hell you are talking about, fine.
Just answer the question: What's the difference between your God and crystal-rubbing.
Since it has never occurred to me rub a crystal for any reason, I cannot answer that in any meaningful way.
Its even more obtuse than asking what is the difference between your car and eating a pineapple, since eating a pineapple falls within the folds of regular activity.

And by the way, ignoramus, if you ask someone a question, perhaps you should listen to their honest answer instead of ploughing on with your one-eared, ignorant assumption. Just because YOU lie in your bubble-world, doesn't mean everyone else does. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

I don't want the responsibility for leading you astray. (And, let's face it: the other strays probably wouldn't accept you.)
I'm not going to answer. I will allow someone else to do that, which you will distrust, not listen to, and argue with. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Then please pay attention to your footwork.
Not objectively. Delusions don't count.
Except that you haven't established anything objective to back up your assertion of it being a delusion.
Why? What have you smeared on the sidewalk now?
In the set of the world’s medical practitioners there exists a wide range competency in regards skill and knowledge, and while it can be demonstrated that some in that group may do more harm than good, there are others who can be shown to deliver legitimate medical treatment their patients. In the set of the world’s religious authorities, regardless of their training, none can be shown to facilitate any kind of connection to a god. Unlike medical practitioners, there is no objective standard to demonstrate the legitimacy of religious authorities in regards to connecting with a god.
Sounds like you must have some pretty good arguments for, amongst other things, dismissing several thousand years of human history. Let's hope those arguments meet the same objective standards you are alluding to, as above.
So there is verifiable contemporary or historical examples of religious authorities facilitating connections with gods? Show me this religious equivalent to Viagra.
