It isn't an easy GCSE. When I did it, most of it was no more than a memory test. Exactly the sort of thing you wouldn't call easy. In fact, because it was on the entirety of the book "Dimensions of Christianity" (about 200 pages) and Mark's gospel (at least that's the shortest one.) it was more a luck-based mission than anything. We did comparative religion as well (Judaism, Islam and Hinduism - unfortunately, no Buddhism or Sikhism or any other religion.) but we were not tested on it.

^Possibly, or they think the lunar lander created clouds of smoke, which was debunked on the episode of QI on last night.

I need modern medicine to survive. People like that are a threat to my very existence, if anybody important started listening to them.

December 23rd will mark the start of me celebrating Christmas this year. Why not? I'm sure the Mayan descendants are planning on having a bigger and longer than usual Christmas party.

It's not just Muslims, barbaric Christians exist too, as the recent story about a child murdered for supposedly being a witch by relatives proves.

from Wikipedia:

... according to a poll done by the BBC’s Asian network, 1 in 10 of the 500 Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Muslim surveyed said they would condone any murder of someone who threatened their family’s honor. The poll demonstrated how the notion of honor killings and views of whether they are acceptable and justifiable crosses religion and is more contingent on the family’s social culture. (End of Wikipedia quote)

Stop claiming this is an Islamic crime when it crosses religious boundaries. The fact a Muslim did it is incidental, I could find a Sikh who's done the same thing (I did - in a newspaper article from 2009.) This is more to do with the barbaric arab culture than any particular religion. The irrational attacks on Islam on this site irk me. There are plenty of rational things to attack Islam for, but this practice isn't just an Islamic one.

@rookieatheist It's better than that, it changes from 30c/lb to 13c/kg. Which is a massive decrease in price.
