Go to: Spanish artist faces prison over 'how to cook Christ' film

Mungo9000's Avatar Jump to comment 24 by Mungo9000

This is the film in question: Youtube - Cristofagia Javier Krahe

Do you suppose Youtube will find itself in prison for distributing the film?

Go to: The God issue: New science of religion

Mungo9000's Avatar Jump to comment 11 by Mungo9000

For some time I've been waiting for "the science of religion" to start filtering into the mainstream, I want to see this as an episode of Horizon, or to make it into popular press; not as atheism, but as science.

In my greatest dreams, Andy Thomson's wonderful, Why We Believe in God(s) will be turned into a mainstream TV series hosted by Derren Brown. (Brown, after all is the trusted public face of deception by our own faulty psychology.)

So when I saw the NS cover I snapped it up in a heartbeat, excited that the news-stands in supermarkets up and down the land were taking this issue and putting it front and centre. Then I read the editorial on the failure of Militant Atheism and suspected something was amiss.

Sadly, this issue is a lukewarm apology that seems determined not to upset anyone. Without doubt, the editorial team at New Scientist contemplated the potential angry Christians and decided (wrongly) to ensure they didn't get any serious complaints. They wont, from Christians...

Stephen Bayley was once described as "the second most intelligent man in Britain"

Yes, in a Wikipedia article that also claimed Hitler invented the lightbulb.

Go to: Pope 'exorcised two men in the Vatican', claims new book

Pics or it didn't happen!

Actually, I bet Popey is photographed constantly whilst out and about in St. Peter's Square so this miracle should be recorded somewhere.

No wait... don't tell me the power of Christ fogged the film? But it's video. Ah, but the holy spirit fogged the lens of the camera! Oh you heathen, when will you learn not to ask such stupid questions and demand evidence. Is the miracle of the exorcisms not enough?

...regular churchgoers are growing older all the time and that their number is constantly diminishing; that recruitment of priests is stagnating; that scepticism and unbelief are growing.

Atheists 3 - Christians 0
