Re: Faith on TV

Next month, bishops and clergy in the General Synod will be told that the "once exemplary" state of religious output on UK channels has become a consistent marginalisation of the "few remaining programmes".

Re: e-books

And paper is actually a rather robust means of storing text. I reckon most books would outlast an e-thingy.

Re: On the origin of life

We know that energetic conditions can enable to building of complex molecules, rather than just their destruction. No, no, no. This is complete rubbish. I have it on good authority (some Christians - now they wouldn't lie to me would they?) that this would violate the second law of thremydymanics. ...

Re: U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret Bible Codes

How so? These are 'scopes they're manufacturing, not weapons. Yes, I know the 'scopes are used on weapons. The 'scopes could be on weapons used in "law enforcement" or hunting. I don't think the Biblical references were designed as a deliberate snub towards them theya hell-bound Mohammedans. Trijicon

Re: Favourite poems

Emily Dickinson:

It's all I have to bring today –
This, and my heart beside –
This, and my heart, and all the fields –
And all the meadows wide –
Be sure you count – should I forget
Some one the sum could tell –
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

Re: Are you a humanist or what?

I find it amusing that many atheists lambast Christians for needing "God's will" to justify acting "morally", but then feel the need to justify their own actions by claiming that they (the actions) are "good". I have absolutely no idea how to respond to this other than to say that everything become...

You said you don't usually want to hurt people, what about the charity woman whom you were particularly nasty with, not to mention intimidating?

Re: Do those stars exist now?

When astrophysicists tell us how far away a particular star is, does it amaze you that what we are looking at may not actually be there, in the now? Einstein demonstrated that there is no such thing as " the now". Let's consider a star on the other side of the milky way galaxy. Since it is probably...

Re: Are you a humanist or what?

Not according to Hundovir, if I've understood him correctly. We don't 'need' to do anything; we only do it if we 'want' to. I can't help but be reminded of a 3 year old(and older) who, when asked to clean up his toys, shouts, "No! I don't want to!" Hmm. Perhaps I need to find a forum better suited ...

And when I read the line about not needing to do anything, I think, sure the people in the world doing the shitty things they do will continue to do so regardless but especially if we silently condone it. Being able to fall back on the idea that we don't 'need' to do anything sure is convenient I d...

Re: Once you've 'had' a deity .....

which rather understates how good OHG is. I'd rate it as the finest radio comedy of at least the last decade. I don't know how I've managed to miss this, I'm usually fairly up to speed with Radio comedy. Finest? Possibly. But it's got to be good to beat Giles Wemmbley-Hogg or Count Arthur Strong
