Re: In the USA you can be convicted of hate crimes.

I can call a homosexual a faggot **** with a lifestyle Jesus would kill him for because he is inherently evil, in a bar in the US and get arrested. I am pretty much sure that is true in any state but your ass. Let's face it Bob does not live on Earth. Where he lives though is a matter of some debat...

Re: I See My Grief...and it is Bigger Than Me. Much Bigger.

No offense against Keanu Reaves, but he's neither a great Actor nor a great philosopher. Even if I said the cleverest thing ever no one would acknowledge it, let alone remember it, which is no one's fault not even the Romans, but it is pertinent. Keanu Reaves though has said something very stupid wh...

Something for Doc:

Not actually about Venice or even the morbidity of it's denizens of course, just a good piece of music that tends to evoke pathos. Apparently inspired by love unrequited and requited, at least the whole symphony anyway.

Re: Was Satan wrong to demand equal rights in heaven?

Jews and particularly perecuted, subjugated and exodus Jews tended to write in ways that would be understood by other Jews but not by those persecuting them. In that light all Revelations actually says is: The seven headed dragon will be rode by the beast, a spawn of the whore of Babylon. Rome was a...

Re: not sure where to put this but..?

It's not me who has lost my faith in humanity as I so carefully pointed out. But I don't think loving one person for that girl is really going to do much. I think had you said that to her in response she would felt profoundly patronised and more importantly profoundly alone and without a reason. No...

Re: Was Satan wrong to demand equal rights in heaven?

No in fact he was spot on, and God was wrong. Absolutely wrong, and in so many ways God should answer for but can not. Satan had every right to do what he did, and God had no right to refuse him. Lucifer should have had the right to demand leadership. no tyranny is fair no God who espouses it could ...

Re: In the USA you can be convicted of hate crimes.

Well actually usually they were often Pirates and then privateers, who had a Letter of the Marque (royal agreement to fight for their sovereign nation) which allowed them to attack any vessel but their own nation obviously; later in the wars for the Caribbean many just turned tricks and went straigh...

Stephen Fry examins the sea or should I say C

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6sz8D411kE Just wondered what people might think about this, it's an argument as to why the Church has not been a force for good. It's a little overblown, I personally think all the charity work it has done has to be taken into account but do watch, and do make up yo...

Re: Intelligience is a Cure

Viruses technically are not defined as life, for very important reasons, and I could explain why but it would be so boring you would die a little inside. Human beings who are "viral" on the other hand are. Intelligence has no utility at all, but then you are putting the cart before the horse, utilit...
