Re: Stag Hunting

"We must exercise wise dominion over the planet which God has entrusted to us." Hmm, though that sounded familiar, (KJ) Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over...

Re: Opt In religion classes

The only issue I can see is one of supervision. I have no children, so I normally avoid this topic, (one day perhaps). However regarding supervision, I vividly recall how the school bus would drop us off an hour early, at which time we would commence sellotaping nails to bangers and dropping them i...

Re: Stag Hunting

The Irish Stag Hunt which was outlawed is not some noble effort at keeping the population of deer under control. The stags they hunt are reared for it. It is then let loose and is chased all over the countyside by a pack of dogs. The stag is completely terrorised and ends up exhausted, cut and bloo...

Re: Stag Hunting

The problem with deer is that they have no natural predators any more. When you let the population grow the health of the whole population goes down. They banned hunting in the States on deer and a few years later the whole population starved because the food supply could not support the population...

Re: Interview RTE Primetime

I think they really think they have done nothing wrong. On boards.ie someone from the village said that they never had this problem so it must be this man (me). Common Irish problem, usually in the form of "Shur we always did it this way", and quite common lately "Shur I always vote INSERT HERE". S...

Re: Your Political Compass

So far we can say that we seem to vary a fair bit in their economic opinions but we are all anti-authoritarian. I wonder if this is the case for all atheists or disbelievers? I think it might be, certainly anyone brought up in a religious family will have to have cast aside the authority or family,...

Re: 10 Things Christians and Atheists Can Agree On ?

An Atheist believes that God does not exist, spinning it will not remove the fact that is a belief in a particular position. No different from saying that you believe the big bang theory is/is not correct. It's just basic english. I'm a benefit of the doubt kinda fella so, I personally don't "belie...
