  • When a reactionary Christian like Kim Davis loses a court case I just have to have a wee smile. There’s enough misinformation, exploitation and confusion already in the world, without the likes of her and her […]

  • OK, I have no doubt the Russians and others tried to interfere with the US election a year ago. But as Jesus is supposed to have said : “Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone. ” The CIA can hardly be […]

  • Plus ca change ! When Marx was writing Capital, he saved special praise for Leonard Horner, who was the man supposedly empowered to enforce the various Factory Acts. Of course passing legislation and enforcing […]

  • As a site based upon reason and science, why should we accept the faulty idea of “race” at all ? True people have different skin colours, different hair types, and so on, but as far as I know, we are all of the […]

  • As to God telling people to move, I thought He made that quite clear in the Old Testament and Noah’s Flood : Fuck off you lot, I bloody hate you all.

  • Funny how the rich have an affinity for heights eh ? Away from the swampy ground and the biting insects. All those castles built on hill tops. The likes of Paul Allen and his Hawaiian fortress, well away from […]

  • I’m glad I wasn’t within a light year or two, when they set out !

    Even though a man, I must agree with Bonnie that Jesus has no sex appeal ! In my defence I will say that the term ‘sex appeal’ was sexed up. A no boner is guaranteed by following Jesus into the desert having given away all my possessions ! I am a socialist, but that ain’t socialism !

    With possibly a large increase in their business, has anyone asked the view of the Australian divorce lawyers ?

    It seems Jesus is losing his sex appeal among the young ? Just like in Western Europe, too many other diversions from the straight and narrow path ? TV, internet, Twitter, Game of Thrones, Football, sex, rock n’ roll, drugs, learning, etc etc. Funny how both my parents rejected religion without any of those things. In my mother’s case through…[Read more]

    Whilst a few interested parties object to the findings of climate science, and get their stooges to try to cast doubt on AGW, they do so on financial grounds. However when it comes to evolution and the big bang, the objections are invariably from reactionary religious people. I am not familiar with the Koran’s version of Genesis, but presumably…[Read more]

    Why does Almighty God permit a world where people even need charity ? Jesus can keep his ‘socialism’ i.e. giving stuff away. Instead let’s go for the real thing, each of us owns everything in common equally including the means of production and distribution. Unfortunately for the likes of uncharitable Joel Osteen, he will be one of those doing…[Read more]

    Still here and about to arrange another flu jab since the one I got last October ( 2016) !

    If you don’t give kids a proper education about sex, (and other things), they find out the hard way with stupid playground talk and myths being swapped. It seems as far the 3 Abrahamic religions are concerned, ‘abstinence’ ends at marriage and women are then regarded as breeding machines and household slaves.

    As to that decision as whether the ball might have hit the wicket, dismissing the batsman, had it not hit his leg first, surely a case of estimating / guessing what the laws of physics would have done without the batsman’s leg ? But then no-one ever claimed that cricket was a science, although like all other sports, science (unknowingly, /…[Read more]

    Cricket has “laws”. Does this make it superior to sports with mere “rules” ?

    Well for all the argument above about “law” and “fact”, I found the interview very enjoyable, and it seems Richard is back to his perky self. Yes I agree with Richard that evolution is a factual description of reality, it happens, and we can show it. End of argument, at least for me. As for Wittgenstein, I suspect he knew more about the fine…[Read more]

    Somehow I am reminded of the way Stalin “disappeared’ all of the leading Bolsheviks of the 1917 coup d’etat, including Trotsky, by the 1030s. Unlike Trump, Stalin appears to have been quite intelligent, and his upbringing in the Russian Orthodox Church certainly taught him a lesson about social coercion and how to effect it. Certainly it was…[Read more]

    Scaramucci Scaramucci, can he dance the fandango ?

    Of course this has nothing to do with biology or evolution by natural selection. This a part of the Turkish ruling class deciding that religion is a useful tool to keep the largely uneducated proles in their bloody place, – back in the dark ages and under the thumb. My guess is that Erdogan is about as religious as Donald Trump, i.e., – not very.…[Read more]
