Go to: Religious groups want Russian cartoon channel shut down

As always with Russians it's the politics and power that are the underlying things to look for.

This channel is one of the very few home-grown independant media outfits. The government doesn't like these sort of things much.

Non-government organizations are also being squeezed by the Kremlin. But, they can get in Putin's/Medvedev's good books by putting the boot in.

It's significant that they have not complained about any channels that are state owned.

An acclaimed author who has spent his career writing about mathematics and the sciences

Has anyone provided a proof of God's inexistence?


Er...proving a negative doesn't seem very scientific.

I can't wait for Paula to put the boot in.

Let's just hope that the brain doesn't turn out to be a raving theist.

How does one become a Lord? Can we recommend Paula or RD? Actually, I think Hitchens would be a GREAT Lord.


Well, anyone can nominate anyone else these days. Check out the page here: http://www.lordsappointments.gov.uk/

Let's get everyone to fill out the application form on behalf of Hitchens. That'll teach 'em.
