Re: Religious Crackpot of the Month: March 2009

Really makes you want to weep! It just illustrates the difficulty we have in discussing matters logically with people for whom the answer is always, "It's God's will".

Re: Cooking crabs

I also believe that a crab or lobster dropped into boiling water is dead before it hits the bottom, and is probably the most humane way to dispatch them.

Re: Do you ever go to church?

I try to avoid christenings but really it's about the people involved and respecting them. I do have some religious friends and I would attend church for one of their family ceremonies. They know that I think it's rubbish but despite our differing opinions about religion, we get on well and I think ...

Re: Room 101

Grocer's apostrophes (already nominated!) People who park a car in the middle of a space that can take two. People who drop litter. Loud, opinionated people (unless I agree with them :hilarity: ) People who swear in the presence of their young children. Politicians that don't answer the question (th...

Re: Nurse may face sack for prayer offer to patient

This the type of stuff that helps to get atheism a bad name. I don't really think she should be doing this but a quiet word rather than the disciplinary process is surely more appropriate.
