We do have a few people with strong views here! It seems I was not the only one who didn't like sports at all! I think the real point here is, ignoring the fun, that there are not going to be the hours in the day unless the government clears space on the school schedules. Elsewhere we were talking a...

Well, guys, how about trying your local tennis club. I am non-sporty but am also treasurer of a tennis organisation in Scotland and the area we come has a number of very busy clubs. We have our share of small ones but most are pretty active. As far as school sports are concerned, I would have though...

Quite right, Godsmacked, (or whatever your name is next!). You must be just like me. However, we had 2 x 35 mins PE each week and an afternoon of 'sport'. Actually, after 1st year sport wasn't too bad as the school had only one aim; find suitable talent to win at school sports so the likes of me wer...

Just read "Jamaica Inn" by Daphne DuMaurier. A very fine book, I had listened to a dramatisation of "The House on the Strand" on BB7 a while ago and thought I ought to read some of her work. Less culture, by quite a bit, I am reading one of Kathy Reich's books which are based on cases she work in Mo...

Actually, Alan I was a church organist for years though paralysis rather spoilt that. I met me friend at an RAF base where I got the job of organist at the Church of Scotland and other free Churches chapel. (I was a civilian not in the forces,) When he became a minister we visited them at the huge m...

I think Cult is a term more used of groups of which the person does not approve or which are not mainstream. the word seems to me to represent more of some degree of disapproval rather than anything else.

I would like to refer to Godot's earlier thoughts on God. The primary justification for the existence of God (the single entity as originally defined by Abraham) seems to be as the creator, ie the dynamic force which gave rise to our existence. Yet people seem to automatically impose all sorts of ot...

Yes, Godot, that was the Satanic verses and as far as I was concerned it was rubbish and I managed a couple of chapters only. Oddly, I was staying with a Church of Scotland Minister at the time and it was his copy! On the basis of the smallest sample of his writing, I wold not have given him anythin...

I think that secular Jews, who make up the majority in Israel these days is OK as the UN recognise Jews as a race as well as a religion. By contrast, the Christians are not of any particular race and thus one could not logically be a secular Christian although some clergy I have know do seem to fit ...
