Re: Is there a funny pics thread?

Re: Homeopathy

Surely a majority of MPs have enough sense and knowledge to sort this out. Given that we (the electorate, that is) vote out our most scientifically-competent MP while returning Tredinnick time and again, there ain't much chance of getting MPs to do the sensible thing. Yep. Worse, once we've elected...

Re: Cryptic clues

Hatters football... can't be Luton Town, shurely?

But be it "Mad hatter patriots get a letter wrong and play old instrument, until Tess... (9)" or "Hatters football patriots get a letter wrong and play old string instruments - until Tess..." I'm still a bit confuzzled

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

Maybe the 'are there any moral facts?' thread would have been more appropriate. (Or am I just saying that because I've already made clear my attitude to debating with the far-right there?) ..or sign up at DU and find out just how silly your "far right" designation is? You're right, it is somewhat o...

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

If you don't see the DU Home page the way I do that's your view. I'd be very interested to know what made you think that it was "anti-intellectual" - other than a knee-jerk reaction to something you didn't like reading, that is. a site run and controlled by a supporter of the English Defence League...

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

Can I be arsed debating with anti-immigrant bigots? No thanks. That is possibly one of the most inaccurate first impressions I've read. But nobody's forcing you to sign up, so I don't suppose it matters. Sorry if reading the home page of Mr Willet's site looks to me like a long string of anti-immig...

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

Philbo, what better forum than this to advance his views - do you know of one? Better? Probably not. I enjoy hanging out at this place , though. [ This place semed like a vigorous debating arena at first glance, but reading the 'Join Us' piece, I think it's just some right-winger wanker wanting a f...

I'll take a longer look at the other forum,philbo, (not that I'm deserting this one!,) but initial thoughts? 12 moderators! Wow, strong debate! :laughter: :) Don't think I'm in that list any more..

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

I have to say I hope Mick does not depart, as I think he is genuine and all Xians are a stimulus to prevent us from getting cosy. "Genuine" is an interesting way of putting it. As this thread went on, the more I got the impression that he lapsed into jargon as a way of avoiding being pinned down, o...
