  1. Mrs Vardy and Dennis Wise going to the jungle!

    Fair play to Rebekah, I wouldn't have eaten any of that.
  2. Musical Maths Quiz

    Annoying as I knew almost all and them but wasted to much time on the first few.
  3. Musical Maths Quiz

    I just completed this quiz. My Score 37/100 My Time 276 seconds  
  4. Absolute cvnts of our time Pt.MXXVI

    I've always refused to sign on any form. Assuming I die a natural death, I just want to be burned and not fiddled with. The idea of someone using my organs when I am dead is horrifying to me. Do not care how selfish people think I am for it. But as the feminists say "my body, my choice."
  5. What's your view? Justice or murder?

    If he truly was remorseful then I think living with it would have been a more apt punishment alongside the obvious punishment that comes with prison.
  6. But what happens when basically anything happens? Or what about when residents disagree with each other on anything? In fiction its a cool idea, in reality it's a Pipedream and a shit one at that.
  7. FAKE NEWS thread

    Should change the thread to "articles I couldn't be arsed to read" not fake news at all, tells the story, and talks about how it looks like a smartphone but is almost definitely a hymn book.
  8. The crinkly music quiz no. 1

    I just completed this quiz. My Score 30/100 My Time 130 seconds  
  9. Leicester is a great place. People just tend to hate where they're born. I've lived in 7 places in the UK and Leicester was only beaten in my rankings by Weymouth, and that was only because it was coastal.
  10. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    I literally have no clue what your point is? You are just waffling on with unnecessary information. The evidence doesn't matter, that is the point! It's the belief in that evidence that matters. If someone set up a religion and claimed they knew the will of god and spouted it around with no conviction or belief in it then that would be arrogance. The point is that Christian, Muslims or whatever religion Leicsmac is talking about believe in it with conviction, and therefore because they have that belief, it is not arrogance.
  11. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    I think it is you that has misunderstood. The debate myself and Leicsmac are having concerns whether or not religions are arrogant in assuming they know the will of God. The reason I keep pointing out that I am agnostic is because Leicsmac and yourself keep replying as though you think I am suggesting that humans have eternal souls and animals don't or that I believe there are objective moral values that exist only in humans and therefore a deity exists. I don't believe any of that. When I am talking of evidence I am talking about what religious people hold as evidence, not myself and this is important here because as I have pointed out as my main contention in this argument, this evidence that religious people subscribe to shows they are not being arrogant.

    Again, I as a non believer do not hold much for the evidence but being self aware and noticing yourself in the mirror is not the same thing as objective moral values.
  13. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Please please, for the love of the God I don't believe in, remember I am agnostic at best. I do not hold much for this evidence. That said if the evidence is to be believed it follows logically that you would believe only humans have eternal souls thus it is not arrogance, just logic.
  14. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    It doesn't really have much to do with achievement as there are animals that do significantly better than us. It all comes from the evidence that God exists. One prominent reason for faith is that of objective moral values. It is mooted that objective moral values serve no purpose hence would not exist without a deity. Given that religious people believe there are objective moral values, they believe in God and further more they believe in eternal souls. Whilst evidence, though contentious and philosophical in nature, can be found for this in humans it is much harder to find in animals. Thus it stands to reason that religious people believe it is humans who have eternal souls and not other species. It is not arrogant to think that, just logical if you believe the aforementioned things.
  15. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Not really, all the evidence that eternal souls exist point to them existing in humans only so it follows logically that religions don't claim animals have them. I'm not religious and don't believe in eternal souls, just so you know.
