Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

Those famous insults by Cuch... What to reply?

The problem is more general - hot to react to insulting behaviour in the internet? In my opinion the best way is to ignore.

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

It's already better, generally you know who is speaking. The best way of course is to trust mostly your own eyes.

PS. I would stop this off-topic. All know our opinions.

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

I have no problem with a photo of a phalanx of prostrate muslims in a Moscow street. But when standard sources suggests that Russian-Orthodox Christians outnumber muslims in Russia by a factor of 6-7, your claim that islam is their biggest religion stretches credulity. I get that most nominally Rus...

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

The biggest religion in Russia is islam. Vast majority of Russians are atheist. Look somewhere else for Orthodoxes. https://egyptindependent.com/80000-muslims-pray-street-moscow/ https://amayei.nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/2018/09/muslims_praying_in_moscow_for_eid_al-adha.jpg I am not sure whether t...

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

The prediction was quite accurate, it's actually 107 days from 27 August to 12 December. Cogratulations!

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

I may agree with Dawkins that religion is degrading for morals and ethics. It serves to relieve one from the sense of guilt by submitting it to some artificial evaluation and compensation process, instead of resorting to one's own deeply-rooted in our doubting nature sense of good and bad, which ar...

There is no "word of God".
The better. It means God does not lie. Unlike journalists.

True, he is a bit chaotic but he still proves something. In the God Delusion he shows how natural is to organize your thoughts around the notion of God. It's a great book, everybody should read it. Of course, I know he wanted to prove something else. But as the great American scientist Wernher von B...

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

You are tilting at newspapers today. I first assumed you meant we should just believe in what the government tells us, but now you say we should listen for God’s word instead? I think not. You know, existence of God is not certain, so we do not know if He lies or not. Existence of politicians and j...

Those believers in newspapers... It's all because they don't believe in God.

Re: You are rich, privately educated and intelligent. So why do you vote Socialist?

 I'd say that for the last couple of decades (at least) you would find me pretty much aligned with the FT and the Economist. No magic there, they just seem to express views that are based on actual data and a somewhat enlightened world view.  :D Are you really thinking that journalists are able to ...

Re: New racism

Foreign office's job is to react to such incidents, but otherwise it's been ignored in Ukraine as much as I can tell.
Sure. People care how to survive until the next day.
