Re: Holiday info

De-criminalise all currently illegal drugs ????? 4Fxake :angry:
I'm all for the freedom of the individual in matters of choice and self determination, but can you imagine living in a country, town or village where everyone was off their heads, paranoid and suicidal because it had become 'normal'?

Re: Should creationists be given a platform?

I must admit that I agree with TubaTaxi and that I was surprised to see that after casting my vote, I appeared to represent an impressive 25% of the votes cast in that catagory :laughter: But to be serious, if one believes in freedom of speech then how can anyone deny even the likes of David (the ho...

Message for TH and sorry for the afterpost. Hi Ted, I must apologise for anything I said about a persons sense or not of humour. I had not realisd that you had already covered this one thus: I admit I’m humour-challenged on these kind of things – they just come across as self-blinding, justifying ir...

Doesn't it scare anyone that just because we can , make a genetic selection we must go against what any rational mind would want for all humans, ie be born best equipped to live a full life without impedement.

Re: Moral Dilemmas

I think that watning to produce another human being with a sensory defect that if in the earlystages of human evolution would have rendered the individual concerned less likely to survive in its natural environment has to be seen as morally wrong.

Snoopy always seems to be cool but not always aware of the fact. He makes me laugh, because more than anything else he seems to reflect the rebel that's in all of us and just goes with his feelings: usually he ends up in the doghouse either by choice or direction! Such is my life .... :laughter:
