Sorry for the delay in returning to this thread - I've been off-line for a few days. I really appreciate your posts, you have given me plenty to think about. I am still at the stage of adjusting. I have shed my belief in the supernatural and am now perhaps erring in the opposite direction and forget...

There are so many things I'd like to put in there but I'll confine myself to the three that have irritated me just today. 1. I had sausages and mash for lunch. I hereby nominate all sausages that taste like one of my knitted jumpers. 2. da da DA da. da DA da. da DA da. DA DA. Recognise it? It's the ...

Coping with loss

I haven't had a major bereavement but prior to my deconversion the idea didn't particularly bother me because I assumed I would see the deceased again one day. I no longer believe this. When I read about the tragic death, particularly of a child, I really wonder how if the parents are non-believers,...

Hi jaywhat Surely that is a good reason for breaching confidentiality Indeed it is. That is what I meant when I said it was a no-brainer. :grin: No it is not their property. What you say or write is not automatically public property if you have asked for it not to be. I didn't say it was 'public pro...

You have whetted my appetite for that book, Maria, but I never buy hardbacks. I haven't been able to bring myself to read the God Delusion or any of the cannon of similar works by similar authors. The last novel I read was That Summer by Andrew Greig about the Battle of Britain as experienced by two...

That confidentiality should be breached in some circumstances - e.g. to prevent a crime - is a no-brainer. I think when we come to personal relationships we are in much murkier waters. To me, if a friend were to start talking about something obviously personal - that his marriage, say, - he doesn't ...

I can't answer for Curtains but I suspect he did get a lot out of watching and participating in debates as I did myself. I posted my deconverstion story here . What I find most interesting about this discussion is the idea that critical thinking and debating skills can be learned. This was never som...

I've just come across this one: Ode by Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy We are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams; World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of ...
