Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

If i read in the bible about heaven, about the new jerusalem , about angels etc. i can imagine in a limited sense these realities, so they are meaningful to me.
These imaginings may be 'meaningful' to you but that doesn't make them realities.
Are my imaginings reality for you? Really?

Re: Youth Defence Posters

Are they on polycarbonate, like the Yes to Jobs ones? I have a stanley knife taped to a stick for the high ones and use them for all sorts of building projects - the roof of the henhouse and mudguards for the boat trailer, to name but two.

Re: "Have your say" - National Council for Curriculum and Assess

Re: Grúpaí Aindiachaithe le Gaeilge

I'll drink to that. Eoin has made a point but to continue to discuss something in front of others while excluding them is just rude.

I notice Eoin is not a member I wonder if he is just a leipreachán (Irish for troll :lol: ).

Re: Grúpaí Aindiachaithe le Gaeilge

Fáilte a Eoin.
Níl eolas agamse ar aon grúpa aindiachas Gaelach ach tá fáilte romhat ceann a chur ar bun.
An tusa an EÓM atá ar an raidio, ó am go h-am?
Le meas, F.

Re: Holy Shit

Bizarre double standards. They spend hours poring over the workings of women's bodies but the digestive system must be more 'dirty' than the menstrual cycle.

Re: Holy Shit

When you think of the years they have spent debating, analysing and dissecting the zygote, sperm and egg to ascertain the beginning of individual human life, and the many lives that have been cruelly taken in support of this transubstantiated bread, you'd imagine they would have a clearer picture of...
