Graham replied to Ron Humphrey's discussion 'insane comment following tornadoes in Oklahoma'
"Dare I suggest that our common uniting force is hard-wired into our survival instinct? Just as wild animals will often unite when threatened by predators to protect their young and so guarantee the continuity of the species, humans will work…"

Graham replied to Ron Humphrey's discussion 'insane comment following tornadoes in Oklahoma'
"Thank you, archaeopteryx, you're very kind. You're right - no one should have to lose a child. While my son was ill, we made contact with a Florida family, whose daughter, slightly younger than my son, also had leukaemia. She wasn't…"

"Thank you, Hank - very much appreciated. He was 19 when he was diagnosed, and it seems that the younger you are the better the odds are. Huge progress has been made in tackling the filthy disease in recent years (by SCIENCE, not praying harder), and…"

Graham replied to Ron Humphrey's discussion 'insane comment following tornadoes in Oklahoma'
"Happy to clarify, GM - thanks for passing the baton back! "The point of prayer is not that it changes God, or changes the world. The point is that it changes you." If it's not supposed to change a god, why do it in the form of…"

Graham replied to Ron Humphrey's discussion 'insane comment following tornadoes in Oklahoma'
"Religion only tends to unite those who share the same beliefs, and who express them in the same way. It is at least equally divisive, and continues to be the cause of many of the most despicable acts of war, violence and cruelty. We see this on a…"

Graham replied to Ron Humphrey's discussion 'insane comment following tornadoes in Oklahoma'
"We have enough real-life reminders in real life of the transience of things, and in most respects is essential for the continuity of life and/or our environment. It's just the nature of things, and it isn't necessary to assign it to a…"

Graham replied to Ron Humphrey's discussion 'insane comment following tornadoes in Oklahoma'
"Believing in such a monster is one thing - being expected to love him/her/it is quite another. Why would a god actually bother to giveth, only to taketh awayeth againeth? Anybody who does that (used to be called an "indian giver" in less…"

Graham replied to Unseen's discussion 'Be Careful What You Wish For'
"Constitutional right may be automatic, but aren't guaranteed to be fixed permanently in stone. Hence the "2nd Amendment" They can be changed or withdrawn at any time, although the process to make this happen in the US may be somewhat…"

Graham replied to Unseen's discussion 'Be Careful What You Wish For'
"Rights aren't automatic. People must show that they are worthy of them, and there is sufficient history to suggest that not all Americans are deserving. If you allow a child to have unfettered access to chocolate, and the child gorges itself on…"

Graham replied to Unseen's discussion 'Be Careful What You Wish For'
"Exactly - for every theory put forward, there will be those that agree, and those that don't. People will look for the argument that supports their pre-existing position, and that's the problem. The debates will rumble on, and nothing will…"

Graham replied to Unseen's discussion 'Be Careful What You Wish For'
"Well, I haven't seen much of the research, you're probably ahead of me on that, but you can bet that much of it will be conflicting, depending on the agendas of the people that are doing it or interpreting it. The problem is the vested…"

Graham replied to Unseen's discussion 'Be Careful What You Wish For'
"I take you point, but I also think that everything needs to be kept in proportion and perspective, and I'm not sure that it is, at the moment. Aggression and violence are as much a part of the human make-up as altruism & care. Simply…"

Graham replied to Kir Komrik's discussion 'Atheistist Atheist of Atheistdom'
"Who knows? I guess it's a very individual thing, and varies from one person to another. Science almost certainly influences some peoples' awakening. and for others it will just be a question of them daring to think for themselves.…"

Graham replied to Kir Komrik's discussion 'Atheistist Atheist of Atheistdom'
"Everyone is born completely atheist. Sadly, the poison of religion is introduced for many immediately after being born, and continues for the rest of their lives. Returning to the natural state of atheism is often a very difficult, painful and even…"

Graham replied to peggy's discussion 'I am intimidated!'
"Thank you, Roberta - you are most kind. Just to add further encouragement... Many of the most famous intellects the world has known were, or are, dyslexic. (I'm not suggesting at all, Peggy, that you are dyslexic, merely recognising that…"

Graham replied to peggy's discussion 'I am intimidated!'
"I should have also added: Don't be afraid of people disagreeing with any of your ideas. Diversity of opinion is the basis of great debating, and that's a fundamental aspect of this site. It may even help to develop your own thinking about…"
