Re: Non-Practising Atheists

I have had several people accuse me of lacking imagination or of being limited in my view of the world, as if I have some sort of odd learning disability that stops me seeing the whole picture. It's not so much that you are lacking imagination, more that you are lacking imaginary friends. That's pr...

Re: Really Truly True Believer December 2011

This idiot states that saying merry christmas is " worse than fornication or killing someone" D'you know how in 'The Life of Brian' they stoned John Cleese for saying 'Jehovah' when he was conducting the stoning of the bloke who said; 'That piece of halibut was good enough for Jehovah.'? Well, the ...

Re: Really Truly True Believer December 2011

Hi,

I've just seen the post about the woman seeing angels.

I've been helping my son with Cartesian geometry for his IT degree. This means that I have been seen seeing a lot of angles. Who should I tell?

Re: Really Truly True Believer December 2011

I realise that it is difficult to decide which of the three groups in this video are the Really Truly True Believers so perhaps they should all be nominated equally. http://media.watoday.com.au/news/world-news/priests-fight-in-bethlehem-church-2863334.html Interesting to see them being 'split' up by...

Re: Parental demand at heart of school patronage

It makes it look like real progress is being made by holding the Forum on Patronage, when in fact very little will change. It also deflects from the real issue of forced indoctrination in catholic schools, where non-catholic parents have no choice but to have their kids sit through it. To me, this ...

Re: Really Truly True Believer June 2011

I can't help but wonder... How did he get this last nail in? He hammered the nails into the cross first then he drilled the holes in his hands and put his hands over the nails. He was, clearly, wired to Mars but, even so, he did all this and tidied up before he tied himself to cross and did the who...

Re: Really Truly True Believer June 2011

OK, hold the Front Page. This HAS to be it and for the year and decade too. This is a phenomenal DOUBLE hit which MUST win this month's award AND at least a special commendation in the Darwin awards. I found out about it in Private Eye but the original source material is here: http://joongangdaily.j...

I suppose tits like this are so numerous that any one of them could be nominated and clog this award up for the foreseeable future: http://www.youtube.com/user/tomorrowsworldtv?v=cB5b7b9382Y&feature=pyv&ad=11659979260&kw=religion This guy is presenting us with "Seven Proofs that God Exists".

Forum on Patronage and Pluralism in the Primary Sector

A number of those attending the World Conference asked me to provide them with a copy of the documents that I submitted to the Forum on Patronage and Pluralism in the Primary Sector. I think this may have been due to my having highlighted the fact that the State is paying teachers to use brainwashin...
