Do Atheists believe in soulmates (in general)?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Paynton Aug 29, 2012. 161 Replies

The idea that there is a perfect match out there for everyone seems to be nonsense to me. Where is the evidence for this? And even if it were true that doesn't necessarily mean you will find that…Continue

Respect the person or the belief?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Derek Aug 1, 2011. 9 Replies

This is a quick one while it's on my mind. When it comes to talk of respect, the standard line seems to go something like "I will respect the person and their right to believe whatever they want, but…Continue

How do you deal with tragedy?

Started this discussion. Last reply by William Boyd Jul 16, 2013. 5 Replies

I know this topic might seem a bit more personal than usual for this site. A few months ago my older brother committed suicide, it was tough as you might expect. At the time I remember not turning to…Continue

Posted on October 8, 2011 at 1:01pm 13 Comments

This blog is a reaction to the nonsense of "Propaganda Pat Condell" and his latest video. I wrote this a while back.


Israel – Palestine – United Sates


"The main danger which Israel, as a 'Jewish state', poses to its own people, to other Jews and to its neighbours, is its ideologically motivated pursuit of territorial expansion and the inevitable series of wars resulting from this aim...No Zionist politician has ever repudiated the idea that Israeli policies…


Turkey & Europe

Posted on August 25, 2011 at 11:23pm 6 Comments

'Jesus loves nukes' course is struck out
