Go to: How atheism helped me deal with cancer

A wonderful and inspiring post. I hope your parents are very proud of you. I certainly would be if I was your father. Strength built on reason built on self confidence built on science etc etc. I wish you all the very best in the future.

Go to: Living with a theist?

patrickb's Avatar Jump to comment 55 by patrickb

I suppose the bottom line is, can you love and marry someone you know is not only deluded but deluded about the most important issue there is?. I am very fortunate to be in love with and married to an atheist (or I suppose you make your own luck) and it comes as great comfort that she sees the universe through the same eyes as me. I am not sure if I would have the patience and understanding to walk through the park and know that when we walked passed a flower, my partner was thinking "what a lovely flower God has made" etc etc. Sorry if that sounds very basic, but my point is that if you are married to a theist, aren't you actually living in different Worlds?

Go to: Tim Minchin song mocking Christ pulled from Jonathan Ross' Christmas special

Repley from ITV after complaining:

Thank you for your email regarding Tim Minchin on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’.

We often make changes to programmes before transmission and on this occasion we felt that the song didn’t quite work editorially but I can confirm that your comments have been noted here at ITV Viewer Services with your feedback.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to contact us here at ITV Viewer Services with your feedback.

Kind regards
