Dr John Sentamu and psychosomatic spiritual entities

Not sure if anyone else has seen this, in truth I wasn't sure whether it should go in the religion or comedy section! See the link below to the BBC website article. Apparently Dr John thinks the NHS must provide services for 'spiritual health'. He goes on to give an example of when he exorcised a sp...

Re: 'Psychic' found cheating

Just read the 'Psychic Sally' article and some of the reader comments that followed, my favourite being:

"There is a very convincing, obvious and dare I say, conclusive reason why mad sally can't actually speak to dead people.... it's because they're all f*cking dead!!!!" :hilarity:

Re: High frequency trading

"in fact in some countries democracy is beginning to look like the system by which electorates decide which politician gets to implement what the markets dictate." That's really not far from the truth in this country as far as I am concerned. It's frequently one of the most annoying things on the UK...

Re: So long and thanks for all the fish.

Not been on for ages (M.E not good) but followed a link from the BBC news site earlier on, to the American Atheists site and found this one.

...just in case anyone isn't too bothered looking through the tax research site, here's a link to the Green Party report on the 'callous cuts'. as a taster of something alternative.

Re: Modern economics

Oh, there's a surprise! Apparently anyone who doesn't agree with your 'scientific' economic theories is wrong. I suppose I just think the same about the right wing nonsense (more like economic woo-woo rather than science) you spout, though. But then I don't live in your theoretical world that happen...

Re: Grounds for being a Humanist

redsquirrel Very few people here think the above, given humanists don't even think your god exists!

I too thought that article was bang on, its a pity more influential people can't be more honest.

Re: God, Science and the New Atheism

I don't think there is anything other than the resurrection of Jesus Christ which can explain the early expansion of Christianity. What do you mean by 'the early expansion'? Do you mean the spread of a cult that spread around in a fairly minor way for a few hundred years like many others at the tim...
