I am not sure I understand your comment. The value and concern of the individual is uppermost in the Christian faith. Witness Luke 15:4, "What man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?" I am sure Christ would have died for humanity if humanity consisted of a single individual. Surely there are many-body effects when one considers a collection of individuals. However, the underlying interactions amongst them ought to be governed by those prescribed for individuals by the Christian faith.

Moorad said: "If you consider psychology, psychiatry, etc. as the science
with the human mind and behavior as their subject matter, then the Bible,
which knows man best, is the most scientific text of them all. When
psychologists, psychiatrists, etc. learn all about man and fill a
multitude of textbooks with that knowledge, they will say, "we have the
details in our books but it is all summarized in the Bible."

Somehow, I find this way of thinking / arguing not at all satisfactory.
That Scripture has much to say on humanity's (not MEN'S) condition, to
make the claim above is simply not believable.
