Re: Count Me Out.ie

Rog, that's great. Can I suggest that you send a copy of it to the Countmeout website? You can delete/ hide personal information from it before sending it. I'm sure they'd like to know. Can I also suggest that you post a copy to the Athiest Ireland Facebook page informing people that you were able t...

Re: Richard Dawkins-Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life on More4

What a fascinating programme. Last night he had his genome separated. I like that he hasn't tackled easy targets. It would be very easy to talk to the likes of Fred Phelps or other loony fringe religious nuts to make his point. But he hasn't. He has spoken, with great respect, to people doing good w...

Re: Rebecca Watson v. Richard Dawkins

It's a good point, well made!

I suppose I tacked it on to this to show how long this has been going on and in fairness I haven't been banging on about it consistently since.

She's pretty good at self promotion. I'll give her that...

Re: Rebecca Watson v. Richard Dawkins

Jebus, but she's an awful bore. For the want of 'unliking' her facebook page, I still 'like' her page and still get her updates. She's on again today complaining that people keep bringing up 'elevatorgate'. Not once, but twice on the same day. Nice way to try to stop the story from going on and on a...

Re: Enda & Benny face-off

He's getting stick for checking his phone during benny's speech. He didn't join in the clapping at the end because he was still at the phone.

Ha!

Re: You know that feeling you used to get when you missed mass?

What's stopping your from celebrating Christmas and Easter? Christians took over existing celebrations at these times and fit their stories and timelines into them. We celebrate Christmas wil our kids. We get a tree and decorate it. Santa comes. We exchange gifts and celebrate with family and friend...

Re: Turn Off the Red Light Campaign

I know this is a serious issue but I couldn't resist re-telling a story from Oz. I worked for an accountant while there for a year. He met with a prostitute who wanted to make her tax return. He told her he'd need full details of work in order to make a return for her. She returned with a diary and ...

Re: Grúpaí Aindiachaithe le Gaeilge

Fáilte Eoin. I have to say though, I just don't see the point in your exercise. I say this as a lover of the language (even though my proficiency in it is pigeon at best). I have three kids going to a gaelscoil and I think it's important for us to keep the language alive. But is there really a need ...
