Re: Should we change the Irish flag, what does it really mean.

Totally off point, but there was a funny problem in the army recently.
The army wear a "flash" (small flag) on the right arm of their
jackets and loads of them came in with the flash upside down; therefore
we were being defended by the Fianna of the Ivory Coast :lol:

Re: On TV: programmes about religion.

Re: Should we change the Irish flag, what does it really mean.

Apparently it was originally a blue flag, St. Patrick's blue. I remember being taught that in primary school...

Re: Bad arguments and how to spot them

Patrick, I am inclined to agree with both Ygern and Bipedalhumanoid. In a different thread I asked you a very simple question which you were unable to give me straight answer to. Giving a long and biased opinion and not responding to other questions is a prime example of a bad argument. Plus in the ...

Re: De-Baptism

There are no voluntary catholics. Except for Tony Blair. It seems rather pointless. The fact that most of us are baptised Catholics cannot be held against us in a rational debate as the rite is performed at an age when sitting up is still a challenge. So it just seems like a petty way of p&*@ing of...

Re: Atheists Gear Up For Bus Battle

Great! It will help make up for that "Jesus the Carpenter needs Joiners" sign outside a church I often pass. :lol: I wonder why the use of "probably". To encourage debate or to appease the faithful masses?

Re: Why I believe in God

Patrick, Do you think that if you had grown up in a non-Christian country (as Ireland use to be-before you all attack me!) that you would feel it was the Christian God who visited this experoence upon you? It sounds like a ridiculous question but you have said that you're RC and not agnostic. Many o...
