Re: Descramble

Bull: "I moos." (4,5) must be Soul Limbo. Omigod, that is the theme to Wimbledon I think, but I never knew the title, which was short enough for me to guess! I always liked their "Green Onions" though - damn, no chance of doing that now! I will need some time to think of another...

Yes indeed! :laughter:
This is turning out to be a bit of a joke.

I had thought of jocular ocular, but thought that the latter word refers just to the eye

Re: Science Disproves Evolution

Fossil Man Bones of modern-looking humans have been found deep in undisturbed rocks that, according to evolution, were formed long before man began to evolve. Examples include the Castenedolo skeletons (a), Reck’s skeleton (b), and possibly others  (c). Remains such as the Swanscombe skull, the Ste...

Re: Pakistani humanist denied UK asylum after failing to identify Plato

crazy and disgusting. I graduated mainly in philosophy but I would not call Plato a humanist, I really would not know what he was - and the reason is that he predated what we call humanism by many centuries! There really needs to be some pressure on the twats responsible, and I hope that we all join...

Re: Science Disproves Evolution

I'm new to the forum, and I'm going to jump right in here! Hey Pahu! I was you a few years ago. I did a report in my Southern Baptist middle school about how evolution was a big conspiracy theory and creation was the only real way that made sense. I got straight A's. Since then, I have read many bo...

Re: In or out?

Crikey! I didn't think you'd go for that one! So why should anyone care a stuff for anyone else? Is it really "I'm all right, Jack"? And if one thing is international, it is medical research. So the devastation of Southern Europe impacts in British resident too, doesn't it? I can't believ...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Compassionist is right. The religion that Buddha founded is much different than the corrupted Buddhism we see today. There was no reincarnation etc. in the original Buddhim. You just meditated until you arrived at nirvana, the ultimate mental state of peace and ecstasy! It's like the original teach...

Re: In or out?

Alan - I don't know whether you have posted this already. The "Ukraine option" (DCFTA) seems almost too favourable to Britain to be acceptable to the EU. For one thing, Ukraine is presumably a net exporter of labour, so one can see why the its deal with the EU would not require free moveme...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

you both like Buddhism? Maybe Vinnie does not, and I am not sure that I do. Buddhists in practice seem capable of persecuting others, as we see in the case of the Myanmar Rohingyas, and the Buddhist belief in reincarnation leads to various practical abuses as well as to ludicrous metaphysics. For in...

Re: In or out?

This is equivalent to 0.25% of turnover, a sum smaller than the gain GSK has probably made from the decline of sterling, so meh, not really material. Meanwhile in other news, the ability of much of Europe to fund medical research has been severely damaged by the dramatic recession caused by the ope...
