Re: We need a UK Constitutional Convention Sign Now

Not convinced that would solve anything. Brexit has shown us that ordinary citizens generally haven't a clue about the EU or how business and trade operates - mind you, neither do many MPs.

Re: Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

I only ever wear 'proper' shoes at funerals - I currently have a pair from Vegetarian Shows in Brighton. They're not great but fine for occasional use - trainers do me the rest of the time but finding decent pairs of non-leather trainers can be difficult and they keep changing but I can usually find...

Re: If you could prevent your existence, would you?

Re: Alex Salmond and atheists

I often hear this sort of argument here in the US, and then I remember that the mass majority of the prison population is that of people of faith while Christian. I think we need to be careful here: it could be that declaring yourself Christian in prison gets you special rights and privileges. What...

Re: Does consciousness exist outside the brain?

I like Joe's videos - he has a sense of humour that appeals to me! Hallucination can seem very real - vividly so - but there could be more parsimonious reasons for what you experienced. That doesn't detract from what you remember about it and should not stop you from being the good, kind person you ...
