edit: mordacious1 beat me to it, good man.

What a crock.

no medical system can have all the answers all the time.

To paraphrase the great Dara O'Briain, science knows it doesn't know everything, otherwise it would stop. Just because we don't know the answers doesn't give you the right to fill in the gaps with any shite you make up.

Go to: Northern Ireland minister calls on Ulster Museum to promote creationism

Ussher calculated the date [of creation of the universe] based on textual clues in the Old Testament, even settling on a date and time for the moment of creation: in the early hours of 23 October.


Nelson McCausland is a lunatic.

He also complains that the media should not call Northern Ireland a celtic country because to do so ignores the Scottish influence in Ireland. Even thought the Scottish are also celts.

What. The. Fuck.

Go to: Sunday Sacrilege: The silliest story ever told

When I was growing up in an Irish Catholic family I would've argued 'til I was blue in the face with a non believer why all this makes sense.

Deep down though, I always wondered what purpose all this served. Jesus dies for your sins- so I'm sin free now then? No, you still need to confess to be forgiven. So why couldn't God do that in the first place? It never made any sense to me.

But I never, never admitted that because when you're told day in day out as a child you'll be tortured for eternity in Hell you believe it, and it's fucking scary.

Now whenever I see a believer defend ridiculous stories I know that deep, deep down, there's a niggle. The intelligent ones know it isn't true, but they're afraid to admit it.

A legend indeed. His writings are very entertaining too; a real character.

There's a split second, about 56 or 57 seconds in, when he says about "that's the way she is" about Nature, that seems to be practically spat through bared teeth. I can almost sense the frustration of a hundred arguments with wilfully ignorant people in that split second. But it may just be me!

Go to: European bishops urge victims to go to the police

A week after Pope Benedict XVI excoriated Irish bishops for gross errors of judgement

I got this far and had to stop. Pathetic. So it was just a coincidence that every bishop around the world dealt with these monsters the same way. they weren't following Vatican guidelines. Sure...

Edit: typo.
