... and don't try discussing religion with a muslim.

They're hot-wired to it with no room for debate. You should see them posting on Mid East items on yahoo news. A bloodthirsty mob baying for blood if someone disagrees.

In fact, trying to debate it or even tweet it in "a certain ME country" could cost your head - a capital "crime" they call apostacy.

Gives me a cosy feeling knowing we share the same planet.

Although I'm not sure (is anyone) whether he/she/it exists or not, I personally hope he doesn't. If he does, the description of him in Richard Dawkins' book The God Delusion is very apt and downright scary to think we may be at his mercy.

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities" - Voltaire

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" - Epicurus

Sarky little minx! I expect in regard to the feline approach, you're referring to Ronnie, the fifth horseman, aren't you?

CJ would have had fun with a few of these people...

You win - I can't see a connection between Ronnie and cats.

Aha yes - the chaos thing. Clever.

Yes, CJ would have had great fun. Post number 11 of this thread is especially illuminating.
