"Truth" - I don't think that word means what you think it means.

Go to: Can religion tell us more than science?

TomGoodfellow's Avatar Jump to comment 2 by TomGoodfellow

The idea that religions are essentially creeds, lists of propositions that you have to accept, doesn't come from religion.

Eh? It appears that this bloke hasn't heard of such obscure religious texts as, er, the ten commandments.

Go to: A C Grayling: 'How can you be a militant atheist? It's like sleeping furiously'

TomGoodfellow's Avatar Jump to comment 6 by TomGoodfellow

For those that don't know the reference, "colourless green ideas sleep furiously" is a phrase coined by Noam Chomsky to demonstrate that sentences can make grammatical sense without the words themselves making similar sense.

Or something like that. It's a resonant phrase, anyway.

Go to: Fury over Richard Dawkins's burka jibe as atheist tells of his 'visceral revulsion' at Muslim dress

It reads like the MAB are more offended by the "bin liner" thing than the "oppression of half the species" thing. That would be a sign of skewed priorities. But it's hard to tell, what with it being The Mail and all.

The tag cloud on the right hand side of the page gives you some idea about what contributors to the site are most concerned with (hint: no mention of either "love" or "peace")
