Seems to me that a crucial point in all this is being overlooked and that is that for most of the worlds religious people they "Believe" in something and that belief is not built around logic, proof or rational discourse nor is it based upon scientific method.A leap of Faith is necessary, without i...

I'm not exactly raking in the money, so unless it's an album I really, really, really want, I download it and give it a few listens. If it's below the bar, I delete it; if it's good but not really good, I keep it; if it's impossible to buy in the shops, I keep it; if it's just one particular track I...

The "intellectually sophisticated believer" may retreat to a deist-style first-cause-only-god when arguing with Dawkins, but generally pushes the goal-posts back out to the interventionist Yahweh when preaching to the flock. I'm going to have to stop you right there and say you're being biased to t...

What's that French song where the guy goes "ooh e e ooh" in a high-pitched voice? And the other French song with that guy and girl sing with the organ in the background that was really seedy?

He's as bad as theists, putting all his faith into science. I really dislike positivism, it's as unhealthy as rampant theism. I think it was Nietzsche who pointed out that each generation realizes the arrogance of the former generation for thinking they had the truth, but then makes the exact same m...

Actually, Nick, when you've come to the point of committing suicide, you don't feel pain anymore. That's not how it was for me. But that's true what you said about feeling physical pain when suffering from psychological pain, I would get this weird throbbing pain down my back and chest that were ki...

The logic that should be common is that ending all merely prevents things from getting better. Have you ever been in a situation where you're in so much pain the only solution you can think of is suicide? At that point in time, the idea of things actually getting better seems impossible. You hear p...

I absolutely hated "Lord of the Rings", and Ayn Rand has to be the worst writer of all time.

I was also under the impression that "Dance the Ghost" was a jab at Gary Marx's Ghost Dance. I wouldn't quite say it's a jab, just a simple throwaway nod to GD, who were doing quite well (around the time of the A Word To The Wise EP) by that point. I thought it was meant to be Von asking Patricia i...
