That's it, God has been proven. Where do I turn in my atheist membership card?

Comment 7 by JohnnyBosc :

I suppose the poor kid could try pleading temporary insanity. Except I imagine some bright mullah would take that as an oblique dig at the permanent muslim insanity and before we know it there's another riot in Lahore and all shops selling Italian ice cream are burning. Better not.

Ironically, it seems the young man actually had temporary sanity.

Comment 8 by Pete H :

@ Comment 5 by Starcrash No, not making it up. But I don’t remember where I saw this. There’s a lot of bullshit around about Guantanamo Bay, but this stuff is too wacky yet almost plausible for someone to just make up as a joke. Must be some online reference somewhere.

I think my real point is that there is probably a lot more scientific research on the effects and applications of oxytocin that remains outside the normal scientific community. What is a recent discovery revealed in some publications might be less recent in other unpublished documents. As would be expected for many military related topics. As examples, how Dophins swim so efficiently was classified as relevant to submarine technology and that darling of conspiracy theorists Nikolai Tesla’s personal papers were apparently classified by the US military. (And that’s relatively trivial given the paranoid and silly reasons for it.) Virtually all the psychological research on torture is unlikely to see the light of day any time soon.

I remember hearing the same thing, I also can't remember from where. I believe they also mentioned using the smell of fresh baked bread during police interrogations.

Go to: Ethics storm over 'bribing' junkies not to have kids

How anyone can have a problem with the prevention of unwanted children is beyond me, especially with a reversable solution. To even the things out, they should charge the same £50 to reverse the procedure, then it's not really an incentive or "bribe".

So sky daddy commands us not to judge people but he's OK with people judging homosexuals. Once we decide to stop judging homosexuals in the military, God has to take action by smiting birds?
