Re: UCC Atheist Group Forming.

The Socs Guild wanted us to change it to something more concise and to the point. The felt that SASS was too general. Now we're officially UCC Atheists.

Re: Labour wants schools in lieu of abuse payments

Thanks guys :D I wasnt sure was I reading it right and was second-guessing myself :oops: I got a flurry of excitement when I thought it might be all...... but it's passed now :( I'm astounded to learn that the state legally owns so few schools. I don't know why I am continually surprised to find out...

Re: Labour wants schools in lieu of abuse payments

Re: CCL front spends 60k on anti-stem cell campaign

On another note it's rather sad that they have the organisational power and money to erect these bullshit posters - I was of the opinion that "you can't herd sheep" when it comes to atheism, but following the bus ads, it seems things can be organised.

Re: CCL front spends 60k on anti-stem cell campaign

The billboards are absolutely ridiculous. It's clearly just another scaremongering tactic. The (4 week approx??) embryo is clearly there just to get the pro-lifers up in arms. They pretty much said it themselves: “We’re expecting this campaign to make a huge difference to public awareness and to rai...
