Re: Thank you New Zealand

Why do people concern themselves so much with religion? That seems to bother you Sertorio. Why? Because it is irrational. The idea of an all powerful spiritual God is preposterous. A spiritual being, detached from all matter, doesn't make sense. We confuse consciousness with a spiritual existence a...

Re: The Failure of the New Deal Democrat

Let us pray that is what happens. You have amply demonstrated to me that your Democratic Party , always a coalition of interests from outside the US "mainstream", has quite a grubby history behind it. I am also satisfied that its support base in at present likely in a terminal state of decline. You...

You leave out the part of religion that asks where we came from, why we are here, where are we going. Seculars have nothing to say on the subject.

Re: Thank you New Zealand

Why do people concern themselves so much with religion? Religions are just power structures which play on our fear of death to manipulate and control us. In fact, all we need is a sound code of ethics which will frame our behaviour in respect of our own society and the world as a whole. A code whic...

Re: Catholic abuse

Yeah I don't believe that at all. I know plenty of people who've gone through long dry spells and it doesn't turn them gay and it doesn't turn them into pedophiles. Something else is going on. The problem is not the absence of sex as such. It is the absence of sex by people who desperately want it....

Re: Not socialism but justice.

The whites have much better farming skills than blacks because for generations they have been given every opportunity to develop these via the patently unjust land policies of their apartheid state. Whites have better farming skills because they came from countries where agriculture was done for se...

Re: Catholic abuse

The Catholic Church repressive attitude in respect of sex, and the brainwashing of young students for the priesthood, lead to an abnormal repression of normal sexual instincts which later is the cause of all these child molesting occurrences. If the Church was more relaxed about sex and allowed prie...
