Go to: Why do French intellectuals "know nothing about science"?

Let's not forget that most of CERN is in France, and that most who post on here would holiday there at the drop of of beret!

Thanks for that Net. However, I was replying to Archway's statement.

To Archway

Yes, the original inhabitants of Australia might have lived in peace and harmony (of a sort) but they also loved in a stone age society bereft of any insight into the world at large. But, of course they had knowledge far beyond modern science, of course they did. I bet that if you ever ( and I use this only as an example as I wish you no ill-will) got a serious illness, you'd be straight off to your local aboriginal healer rather than a western medical practitioner.

To claim that Richard Dawkins is some kind of no-nothing, and in effect claim that western empirical science is empty, belies an emptiness of your own. Clearly, anyone who has ever read and studied science, let alone Dawkins, would understand the foundation on which it is based. (Have a quick read of Ben Goldacre's excellent 'Bad Science' to understand how science actually works.) I can only presume you've never opened a science book.

Anyway, from an ex-catholic, nail him Richard. I'm sure that you will. You've got evidence on your side after all!!

Go to: Destroy all churches in the Arabian Peninsula – Saudi Grand Mufti

I think we should lay off Aziz he's a great bloke. I've been out on the ale with him and, ok, he often goes the toilet when it's his round and more than once he's been chucked out of lap dancing venues for 'getting too close to the performers', but apart from that he's a top fella. A mixture of Jimmy Carr and Ayatollah Khomeini. You should hear his gag about about Sarah Palin and the burqa. Hilarious! And the one about churches:

Everyone who wasn't me was in a church, so I blew it up!

Give him a pint and he'll stop talking.

Go to: Is Britain a Christian country?

That bloke who was sitting next to Richard, on his right, I initially applauded, then he revealed himself to be a xtian. Why? Because it offered him hope. Richard: 'I rest my case'. Brilliant riposte. And isn't that Christina Odone odious? But overall the programme confirmed my prejudice: there is no real point in arguing with religios because the simply don't listen, probably this has something to do with dispensing with things like evidence or facts and so feel that they can just make stuff up on a whim. Tits.
