Gruebait, the "mainstream religionists" are the manure that fertilise the "fundy cults."

Once they make a decision on the way they live their life based on the word of God, Allah, Zeus or the Cookie Monster, they lose the right to criticise anybody who has made the same leap of faith but in a different direction.

Lesley Stahl's lack of awareness of pretty much every issue raised in this piece sums up the problem with the American media. There were was nothing in there particularly groundbreaking. Was her astonishment at the suggestions that malevolent forces within the American hierachy might have had a lot more to do with the 11th September attacks actually genuine, or was she just pretending for the cameras? There is so much still unknown about the attacks, so many unanswered questions and little hard evidence has ever been put forward about who was actually responsible. Surely the Pakistani students scepticism is justified. It is also understandable that they would believe the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were attacks on Islam, given that they were perpetrated by a deranged Christian fundamentalist (understandable, but wrong.)

Go to: Fern Britton Meets Tony Blair

I've just started a new religion. It's simply called "I believe Tony Blair is the most horrible human being on the planet and I would like to kick him in the balls."

I believe the only true path to salvation is to kick Tony Blair in the balls. We are going to apply to join the Tony Blair Faith Foundation. He says in this interview, he readily accepts that people's routes to god and salvation may be different, so I can't see any reason why he wouldn't accept the validity of my path.

Go to: Scientist's Dino Findings Making Waves

Not all of the genes from ancient dinosaurs have made it down to a chicken. Surely there are certain characteristics you cannot switch on, because they haven't been inherited?

So what will actually be made will be a freak chicken, like no other animal that has lived before. And you'll have big sheds, that nobody is allowed in and inside these big sheds are 20ft high chickens, and these chickens are scared, they don't why they're so big... they go "Oh! Why am I so massive?" and they look down on all the other little chickens and they think they're in an aeroplane, because all the other chickens are so small. Does anybody deny this? ....... No, your silence speaks volumes.
