Go to: Tear Down That Wall

Michael Dudley's Avatar Jump to comment 6 by Michael Dudley

I'd be happy to sign a petition to have Ratzinger arrested as soon as he steps off the plane. Then tried, and suitably punished...

Go to: The fires of Hell are real and eternal, Pope warns

Michael Dudley's Avatar Jump to comment 18 by Michael Dudley

I have emailed Ratzinger at "" to whit:

"Dear Mr Ratzinger,

I see from THIS web page that you claim Hell to be a real place that actually exists and not just a "bogey-man" story designed to coerce the ignorant into accepting your particular brand of religious dogma, as had been previously thought.

That is very interesting. Can you please inform us as to it's location so that observation and an investigation of it's properties can be organised?"

Go to: God is the question

Michael Dudley's Avatar Jump to comment 125 by Michael Dudley

"As the theologian Thomas Aquinas asserted, from whom McCabe draws much, God cannot even be said to exist. That's how much of a mystery God is."

No... god is not therefore a mystery - god is therefore something of which it is said: 'it doesn't exist'".

What's so difficult about that?

avatarThere is a story (undoubtedly apocryphal) that on his death bed, Bertrand Russell was seen to be reading a Bible. When asked why he cheekily replied: “Just in case I’m wrong!”"

That 3was W. C. Fields. "I'm looking for a loophole!"

Go to: Children of a stupid god

Valjean: "God can and does make Himself known to those who are willing to be known by Him, and to interact accordingly with the natural world. Otherwise "he" is quite entitled to remain unknown. "He" is under no obligation to pander to anyone's idle curiosity. "

Amazing! You seem to know how god works! Do you have any evidence? I think we should be told...
