  • Why do Christians believe in talking snakes?

    indoctrination at a very early age with the threat of being burning alive for failing to believe, not just failing to pretend to believe.
    peer pressure. Everyone else believes, so they don’t look too carefully at how crazy their beliefs are.

  • If I offer you some benefit payable only after you die, and I have no possible way of knowing I could deliver, I am a CON MAN. It is not merely a philosophical question that cannot be answered.

  • Classic Richard Dawkins at the 5.30 mark.
    Peter: “Shouldn’t we have seen something?”
    Richard: “No, I mean not if there’s only a billion of them” ……………………….pregnant pause.
    With Richard, the humour is in the silence of the “bleeding obvious”………..I mean, isn’t it?
    Obvious to Richard, not quite so to everyone else…………that’s what we love about him.
