Go to: There are black-eyed virgins ready for you

JIBJABBER's Avatar Jump to comment 36 by JIBJABBER

From someone with Black Eyes:
A conservative estimate would be 2 virgins deflowered per day in paradise. So you only get a little over a months worth, an infinitely small percentage of eternity. So what happens then?
And ideas?

Go to: Interview: Richard Dawkins

JIBJABBER's Avatar Jump to comment 10 by JIBJABBER

I was at a meeting in Dublin with Richard lately and the constant labeling of atheist is getting irritating. Especially later in his interview later on the Late Late Show. Is rationalist not a better word for us to push ? Should Richard not start correcting interviewers who use that word to describe him as it only describes one subject he feels is nonsense.
If Atheist Ireland was called Rational Ireland then I might be tempted to join.

Go to: 'Blasphemy' row over erotic shots

According to my religious upbringing; sex is a shameful, vile, disgusting act you keep for the one you love.

Go to: The words of God do not justify cruelty to women

JIBJABBER's Avatar Jump to comment 11 by JIBJABBER

This is my personal favourite with some excellent advice:

"When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment."
(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
