Re: Corrupt charities

One of the big reasons I don't contribute directly is that you really don't know how your money is being spent. For example cancer research is one example where I like to contribute but even with the legitimate charities, how much of the money go to the actual research instead of things like adverti...

Re: Waters at it again!

He is good for business, he writes this kind of thrash as provocatively as possible to earn readership for his employers. I'd rather just ignore him. Healthy public discourse requires challenging statements of significant public merit, in this case an article in a paper of national record. Yes but ...

Re: The lapsed atheist - the confessional thread

Personally I would try to avoid discussing religion altogether. If you start about religion you will inevitably lose "as you are wrong and evil". If the discussion/argument comes up it is better that it is about privacy and a persons right to their opinion rather than the existence of a god and/or h...
