Re: just suppose you were wrong after all...

Here's my proof for the non-existence of "God". I worked it out about fifteen years ago. The christian God exists to "give us our daily bread" and to "deliver us from evil" - a Provider-Protector (P-P). "God" is NOT a construct of the human mind but an innate concept and survival instinct. At the po...

Re: Flags

Just be careful! I seem to remember Top Gear (I think) leaving a car with flags of St. George parked in Glasgow. It was wrecked within hours. I think it says more about yobs than flags.
