Re: There are no atheists

It wouldn't be correct to say that I believe God's existence is 50/50. I believe in so far is as possible to do so, that it is most likely neither possible nor impossible. Neither scenario can be true. He cannot exist. He cannot not exist. This question of whether or not he exists mirrors, like eve...

Re: LISBON TREATY

I do agree with you there Dev, the no campian was really lying and making stuff up. I'm not against Europe as a trade union and I even like the euro. I'm not to sure about more political power going to Brussel. I think small counties will always be led by the bigger ones, saying that France and Germ...

Re: Not an atheist

I have to say I really enjoy the debate. It is really good that someone like Chesterson comes in so open and willing to debate in a ordely manner. I hope he will answer the questions and that this debate will continue.

Re: VECs want greater admin role in state schools

Hi Tulip, Our experience in the local primary school was very positive but I am not looking forward to the battles with the VEC. One thing I think that is worth doing is to write to the Dept of Education and tell them you are an atheist and ask them for the name of the nearest appropriate school. T...

Re: VECs want greater admin role in state schools

Re: Debating Religion with parents.

Another question I had for them: We're taught that god is so amazing that he clicked his fingers and created the world in 7 days, along with everything on it (not to mind the galaxy, etc). Then we're taught that Jesus handed down the lords prayer, the our father, and told us to say it every day. So...

Re: Future of Atheism

I have to say, I'm gaining a lot of respect for the Quakers the more I read about them. They really are light years ahead of most religions. It is a very reasonable religion with almost no indoctrination, no wars, no abuses. I attribute this to its community based institutional structure. There exi...
