It smacks of creationist tactics. I remember Dawkins giving out that he was tricked into giving an interview with a creationist and the famous trick of him thinking about whether he should continue the interview.

Veritas advert banned by BCI

A christmas advert from those fun folks at Veritas has been banned by the BCI because it has a religious end. They kicked up a fuss and claim that people are forgetting the real meaning of Christmas.

St. Patrick's Day is as much about religion as Santa Claus. It has almost become as secular as any holiday could.

It appears that ExtantDodo has once again been suspended, and that this vid has been removed due to terms of use violations. Which video was it? A few mirrors have been posted. It was the 25 top creationist fallacies. It was great... hopefully YouTube can short it out again. http://www.youtube.com/...

For the record, my real name is Royal O'siodhachain. Unlike most forum members I use my real name. Also I run a linux program on my pc which is incompatible with Mac and Windows so my quote function on my screen did not work.

Hi Colin. Why do you also refer to 'God' as a male? Just curious. Force of habit. I was raised a catholic, but I'm not one anymore. And, may I ask, what 'charitable activities' are you involved in. I should add, I'm not involved in any myself, apart from loving my own family and friends, that is. W...
