  1. Evolution is both fact and theory. Fact in the sense it is still going on and new spcies are evolving today. It is also a working theory as no scientific evidence can improve upon it. There is no credible scientific support creationism and it cannot be used in scientific study. In science terms creationism is not a working theory and is no more than a religious assertion with no supporting scientific evidence. Quoting a mythical 2000 year old bronze age book is not deemed credible or scientific.. It is interesting only in terms of understanding what people believed back then. Their ignorance can be forgiven because they knew no better. Modern day creationism is just nonsense and totally unscientific.
  2. That was a criticism of Stalin. Today I don't see any attempt to say we are equal. Its all I have more money and power than you so your trash. That seems true in Russia and the USA or the UK.for that matter. 😮 It seems our evolution has gone backwards. Any one here think Putin, Trump or Boris would cross the road to help you should you need it. I don't.
  3. Yet, that is the point. I only came up with this too respond to a particular fundamentalist. I don't want to start a new religion. The bible is full of ambiuitry. Who wrote the gospels is a difficult question as we really don't know as the names were added later. Paul the creator of Christianity rather than Jesus. Did Jesus exist. How does a god die and not be dead. Jesus god or man. These are all ambiguities that the church fought over. It stands to me that when he says we are secretly afraid of his mythology then what is the harm of throwing more mythology into the deck and threatening him with his own stupidity.
  4. Well the being did not reveal its self to me personally but I am sure it did to someone in history. Therefore it must be real. As for gowns I suppose I would go with sky blue with bright read hats. Perhaps we could also write an epistle or two as a basis of dogma or something to piss other religions off. 😁
  5. I never said Athe was a god. Just a mystic spirit of the universe of none existence. I know that sounds cryptic but no more so than christianity.
  6. I have just invented a being called Athe. If christians do not become Atheists then they will be doomed to eternal punishment. If they preach against Athe then they are to be met by their accusers who they misled forever. Although Dan will deny it I bet he is secretly afraid. 😃
  7. The UK is to start fining people who go for unnecessary trips out of doors. If you cannot prove your buying food, going to a chemist or your a key worker then you can be fined. I know this is about the corona virus but I wonder how long it will be before its done for other reasons.
  8. I know he is a stubborn pest. Like unto a fly in the ice cream. Full of his own importance and lack of reason or understanding, and thinking he is clever.
  9. Your faith creates a hell and then you threaten people with it. You think we are scared of your myth. No! Find someone who gives a damn about your made up mythic realms. I just wish you would listen but you persist with what others see as stupidity. Dan your full of BGS in the Irish terms.
  10. Firstly I don't believe there is a hell. I believe it is a Christian invention to threaten and control people. Then there is the problem as to whether or not the bible contains any truth at all. I doubt it does. He mentioned near death experience but omits to mention that people have experiences according to their belief structure. During the process of death the brain produces a large amount of endorphins and the person is just tripping on that endorphin. Therefore it is no proof of anything. Then there is a moral arguement. If for arguments sake a god exists then to hold a grudge and punish someone for eternity is neither justice or moral. So the central goal of faith is not love. It is hate of human frailty. So take your threats and shove them up your a....e.😠
  11. I get that and when I was working there were times I did not want calls so I turned it off and left it at home.
  12. It is becoming a frightening world. I am not sure about the biometrics identifying people. As a nurse I used to take and record many of these a day. A person can vary a lot. I have blood pressure problems and take meds. It can vary between 130/80 to 200+/110. My pulse also varies between 70 to 110 and occasionally I get ectopic beats.
  13. Trump was the the one claiming to be the most intelligent man in the world. As for spain. Pick up an old mobile to go out with. Something that uses only data on the phone or leave it at home on the cats collar. That said a man passed my wife who is 70 and talked loudly on his mobile and said that he had the virus and therefore would not be into work. I just hope my wife has not caught anything. Her chest is not good.
  14. I doubt you will return Rabbio as you usually pop in and then disappear. As I see it there is brutality in the law. It is being promoted as gods law and that it is hallowed. Now you may disagree but burning wayward daughters of priests, killing none virgin brides, killing your own children because they have differing religion or have been abusive to their parents, stoning gay people, slaughtering neighbouring towns because someone from that town preached a differing religion, and I could go on. Whether you do that or not nowadays is not the point as it is still described as gods perfect law. It is brutal and I make no apology for that.
  15. Trump, the most intelligent man in the world, the Pope, Angela Merkel and a Schoolboy were in an airplane. The pilot rushed in and said grab a parachute as the plane is going to crash. He then Jumped out. Noticing that they were short of parachutes the most intelligent man grabbed a bag and jumped out. The Pope said I am in charge of the Catholic church and its important that I survive and so he grabbed a bag and jumped out. Angela Merkel said to the boy that means there is only one parachute left and said to the boy that he should have the last bag as I have lived my life. The Schoolboy replied that there was two parachutes left as the most intelligent man in the world had grabbed his satchel and therefore they were both saved.
