It never ceases to amaze me how people confuse ‘tolerance’ with ‘respect’. Respect is something which one earns through intellectual merits, whilst tolerance, thanks to genetic proclivities, is present in the average human being.
These delusional obscurantists have a tendency to make a wilful claim to my respect, without ever explaining how or what this respect entails.
Let me make myself clear: I respect nothing that has not proved itself deserving thereof. It does not matter…Continue
Upon a 4-year consideration, it strikes me that, even in our so-called enlightened West, we frequently encounter an incomprehensible display of public obscurantism, which appears to be unthinkingly smiled upon.
Why is it that bible bashers get free pitches in the town centre, that beardies proclaiming ‘the truth about islam’ get a stall in the streets, whereas poor I am doomed to pay taxes for this bollocks and would probably pay a fine for tearing up the obnoxious crap which they are…Continue

Forsooth, anti-life is a term of which to be proud; for we,…Continue
Well, well, well.
I have been gloating more than anything of late, ensconced as I am in this moribund zombie country of mine.
The evolution for the good began, of course, this summer when churchies were forced to face the fact that they are people. Dear, dear, raping kiddies for Jesus, eh? Yes, I know, he said something of the sort...

This, I aver, for aye cracketh me up most loftily.
GENERAL GORDON, THE HERO OF KHARTOUM
It is a great pity that, whereas all religious communities enjoy the pleasure of receiving insult, muslims are still bereft of this privilege.
I say that this constitutes an act of discrimination and ergo an infringement of their human rights, for all religions should be spat upon equally. As atheists, let us therefore extend our generosity to those poor deprived scions of the Great Bear.
Allah has just the same right to be considered a pig as Jehovah or,…Continue
Every day, I am beleaguered by the unrelenting hordes who spew the phrase ‘common sense’ at me. Indeed, I may with considerably confidence claim that most aficionados of this phrase even do so unwittingly.
For once and for all: what you ‘sense’ is the result of what you perceive, i.e. the chemical strings which your brain so generously bestows upon you. It necessarily follows that your ‘sense’ is individual. It is not ‘common’ in that I, too, would…Continue
