Re: Bible or Bard?

20/30 Not sure if that's good or bad. Mind you I have not read much Shakespeare since school. :D

Re: Do you play computer games?

The quality of computer games on modern consoles e.g. Playstation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One and gaming computers is much much better than the old games on Commodore 64 and Amiga. If you give modern games (e.g. Grand Theft Auto V, Just Cause 2, Forza Motorsport 4 and 5, Test Drive Unlimited 2, Deus ...

Re: Books enjoyed

My favourite author is probably Isaac Asimov. Pretty much anything by him is a good read. But I have read the all the discworld novels by Terry Pratchett through from beginning to end about 4 times now, they are excellent. Roger Penrose's Emperor's new mind and shadows of the mind are pretty good if...

Re: Do you ever go to church?

Draycorinee, infact it is not appropriate to argue about faith with people in advanced age, worst, if with health problems. In this case faith is equivalent to administering palliative drugs and we Humanists should be aware and accept this corporeality and cope with it. I could not agree more. This...

Re: Is it true? Is it right?

I think you have the core of it there, Cam. Up to a couple of years ago there was the idea that empathy was "in our genes" - can't seem to find much after that so I don't know the current thinking. This is 2009 but I feel maybe a bit more authoritative than the plethora of news items out there. The...

Re: The Theme Song To Your Life

When I was a student, it used to be Hand in my Pocket by Alanis Morissette: I'm broke but I'm happy I'm poor but I'm kind I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah I'm high but I'm grounded I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby What it all comes down to Is that everything's gonna be fine ...

I don't play them now, but from the age of ten to about twenty I played them on the Commodore 64 and Amiga.

Mine is me sitting through my car. I had just cut the floor out and before welding in a new one, I thought I'd have a picture taken! Anyone care to guess what car it is? :laughter: Not much to go on!

Re: Do you ever go to church?

Thank you for sharing your experience. How do your parents deal with the conflict between their different worldviews? Does your Mum worry that you and your Dad are condemned to eternal hell according to her Christian beliefs? They divorced when I was six years old, so my mother has a very dim view ...

Re: Is it true? Is it right?

Personally I think that is the problem with religious 'morality' is that it is forced on the individual by a book of rules and more often than not by a promise of a reward in the kingdom of heaven, NOT by any personal sense of empathy. Of course I'm sure some religious people empathise but that alwa...

Re: Do you ever go to church?

:D Yes, it's a shame that others can't be more considerate, but I guess that's not in their teachings. It's their way or no way. This is why for years I had a serious problem with the word Atheist, as from a catholic perspective (as I was brought up), it had a strong association with evil and the de...

Re: When Did you realize you were old?

When I was little and visiting my granddad, I notice he used to make a funny little noise sometimes when he sat down / got up. I never paid much attention to it until years later I heard my dad make the same noise which amused me at the time, then a couple of years ago I did it!! :laughter: and I'm ...

Re: Do you ever go to church?

With regard to the question of do I ever go to church: I have visited them looking at the history and architecture but I have never gone to one on my own by choice for worship reasons. I went to one last year when my step-granddaughter was christened. I did not rate the experience and was glad to be...

Roland Doe

Well, today I was browsing the 'net and stumbled across the story of Roland Doe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_Doe I am amazed that these exorcisms take place and are taken really seriously. I was wondering what you guys & gals thought about this and specifically the following quote: "Terry D....
