You mean I'm the only one who actually got to see it? Cogent, eloquent and quite pointed, as usual. Any chance our good friend The Pancake Man might be persuaded to provide the URL via PM to anyone requesting it? Nudge, nudge...
I was contemplating posting here after viewing, but then remembered that I tend to not contribute to this thread for very much the same reason as I don't use lavatories bearing the sign, "Women." People who find value in Religion and Spirituality deserve to have a place where they can discuss those issues in an unmolested way.
I don't know if there's much demand for it, but perhaps another thread for more general philosophy would be an appropriate place for those who have no use for Religion and don't mind saying so. Yes, I know it smacks of the ugly "separate but equal" thing, but also provides a modicum of respect to both the pro- and anti- camps.
Now, which way is it to the Gents?
Going to save the video to watch later...gone!
But as I'm in Mr. Badger's camp, it likely was preaching to the choir. Ouch! I couldn't come up with a different, somewhat less loaded, cliche after that one got in my head.
Actually, I tuned back in expecting a firestorm...not disappointed, much.
aloha from limbo (betwixt and between London & Yokohama)!!!
yes, even though i meant the video as a genuine starting point for discussion, not an argument against, i felt i would have to clarify to whomever commented.
i didn't want to start any long-running back-and-forths; i've learned that no matter how one frames a point of view, this subject will usually be taken too seriously and mis-interpretation will, alas, be inevitable.
a shame as i think Hitchen was less bullish than usual and posed some very pertinent points.
i guess i'm getting too old for confrontation or tiring of explanation. things like this will always be taken out of context.
my life is getting too short....
so you thought better of it did you? Would not have offended me..but then I am an insensitive atheist...
Greetings from Hanoi!
That's just a spammy troll. Pay it no nevermind! :(
Great to hear about your "piece".
My suggestions - if that's what your looking 4.
Cite your "piece" use specific references.
If you interview anyone, ask for identification.
If you'd stop in here to post this---
What -ON EARTH? is your topic?
Good luck with it and please do a good job!

no no! no disagreement or offense intended.
i just think certain people here recently (not you Sherbear) are setting others up for a fall.
casting a line then reeling them in refers to dropping in the bait and seeing who tugs at the delicacy; in other words, don't be taken in by planted temptation.
i could be wrong here, but Ray-Ray and rodent (talk about smelling a rat), must surely be taking the piss in their posts (i'm surprised, well, kinda, at you lamagonzo for suckling at this wriggling fancy).
if these people are serious then all the better to ignore. or get the qualified's in the white coats prompt smart.
failing that, a carpet, a broom and some sweeping action is best advised.
with friends always makes
for a nice afternoon.
Shall we play cards later.
