I was lucky enough to find a great book in a second hand bookstore recently. The Chronicle of Battle Abbey by Eleanor Searle - is a primary historical source created by a group of monks at the Battle Abbey who were trying to avoid paying taxes by using their supposed connection to William the Conque...

Re: What's your sense of humour? (Test)

I don't entirely agree with this analysis: I do actually think there are a very few things that are inappropriate to joke about at certain times. I didn't approve of Billy Connolly getting a laugh out of Ken Bigley's predicament, for example. But mostly I am no holds barred. 7/7 (London bombings - ...

You crack us up with your banter! Banter Like a king of pinball, you've made an art of playing off of people because your sense of humour is all about banter. Like many great comedians before you, a roundtable of friends, or a roomful of targets, is the catalyst for what makes you laugh. It brings ...

Here is a dream I had a few times recently including last night. I am looking for something important. What the something is varies: sometimes it's treasure, sometimes documents. I am on like a treasure hunt following clues and every time I follow a clue I think this is the one that will lead me to ...

What does spiritual guidance mean to anyone? I don't really understand the term.

Thank you for your responses. I don't know if it's true that everyone who commits suicide is mentally ill or irrational but I think I was being too harsh in saying suicide is cowardly.

I need to do a lot more research.

The concept of evil varies according who is using it. For (some) religious people, evil exists as a metaphysical force which is against the will of God. The 'will of God', of course, is whatever the religion decides it should be. But everything that is against the will of God has one cause: evil. I ...

Gosh, this is a new one on me. In my day the refuge had one telly in the lounge and this was paid for by the group who looked after us. Now, I'm confused. I thought 'gregory' is a man's name. Or were you in a refuge for men? I was thinking, by the way, that Think Humanism might be nice if it had so...

I wasn't thinking of suicide in the case of untreatable illness but in cases where a person is healthy but life just seems hopeless, nothing to look forward to or, perhaps a problem such as serious debt. I have known at least three people who's lives were turned upside down by a partner committing s...

Darkest Kent. Im curious that you have lumped Northern Ireland and the Republic together. Was that done consciously? Are humanist residents of Northern Ireland in favour of a United Ireland, on the basis that the division is largely religious in origin, or in favour of the present situation, rather...
