I think I know the answer to this question already, but I'd like to know your thoughts.There's no clean cut response really, if you think about it. I think that as long as there are people, there…Continue

The End Of The World Commeth

So I've just started university and I'm studying philosophy. Ok, simple enough. Until I have to pick other subjects to study as well - just because the University thinks it would be a good idea. After much deliberation (well actually, none at all) I decided on the other subjects.Now to the crux of the matter - the University is letting me loose in the Theology department...... oh the fun to be had. So I just figured I'd let all you fine people know that I shall be systematically destroying each…See More

About Me:
Hmmm.... what to say? I suppose I'm a licensed bullshitter really and therefore it goes without saying I've never (to the best of my memory) lost an argument. I'm a philosophy student, so it kinda comes with the territory. I'm definitely a very unique person (just like everyone else) it has been said to me - and I quote - "you're the most logical, analytic and rational person I know, and yet you have the sharpest intuitions out of anyone I've met" - Now I quite liked that observation because I think it suits me quite well. I'm all about the facts and I'm a highly hypothetical person often lost for hours in thought. Yet I'm most definitely a people person, but in a strange sense of the phrase. Because of the fact I'm incredibly introverted, this leads me to a more observational role, and boy, some of the stuff you notice when you take the time to look. But enough about that.
What else? I'm a hardcore gamer - the PS3 is my console of choice - and if I do say so myself, I'm pretty adept. I'm an absolute music 'nut' - a "head banger" to be exact, you know, the good metal from the 70's. But I'm pretty open to most genres - never dance. ever. And of course, how could I forget films? I'm a film freak, and it's a problem. I'm a massive Pacino and DeNiro fan, so Mafia films come with the territory, but name a film, and I've probably seen it.
So think I should rap this up - or just delete the whole lot and write "not much to tell" but we both know I'm not going to do that.

Why are you here?
God made me.....
No, seriously I don't really know why. Why are any of us here? For me, I guess it's just another opportunity to discuss religion in all it's flaws, with intelligent free-thinking people. Who wouldn't go for that?
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
I never left a religion. I'm proud to say I was never part of one, although that doesn't mean I have no experience of them. And to be honest, there are just too many reasons not to believe, too many contradictions. And just too many terrible things carried out in the name of religion, that there's no way a rational person could let it influence any aspect of their lives.

Adopted Philosophy

Posted on September 18, 2009 at 10:15am 0 Comments

I contend that we are all Atheists, I just believe in one fewer God than you do.
When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible Gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

Just a quick thought.

Dawkins Has It Right

Posted on September 5, 2009 at 8:08pm 6 Comments

Philosophy is comprised of questions that may never be answered, whereas religion is comprised of 'answers' that may never be questioned. Dawkins makes a very valid point - where does all of this undeserved respect for religion come from? And why the hell can't we get rid of it?



If I was to turn around tomorrow and preach that we should declare war on New Zealand because that's where The Lord of the Rings was filmed (stay with me) and that film was based upon a rather weighty tome by… Continue

I Thought Discrimination Was Supposed To Be Dead....

Posted on September 5, 2009 at 5:56pm 5 Comments

.... I know, naive of me.



A little article I was reading.......



"After six years of childless marriage, John and Cynthia Burke of Newark decided to adopt a baby boy through a state agency. Since the Burkes were young, scandal-free and solvent, they had no trouble with the New Jersey Bureau of Children's Services—until investigators came to the line on the application that asked for the couple's religious affiliation.



John Burke, an atheist, and his wife, a… Continue
