Well, Hitchens was a alcoholic, sexist, racist, imperialist, warmongering arsehole, and Dawkins is a tedious, pompous old git afflicted with the zeal of the (de)converted. Realising that there is no god is hardly a dramatic insight. He reminds me of a small boy who's just just realised that he has a penis, thinks it's the most amazing thing in the world, and wants to show it to everybody.

I once attended a debate that had Richard Dawkins on one side and David Icke on the other (amongst others). David Icke came out of it looking rather good, by comparison.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Frankly I find all religions a waste of time.......most have more blood on their hands than Hitler :shock:

I am only aware of one God.........."Tempus fugit".......and the bit between being born and snuffing it is the important bit :thumbright: ..........Its far to precious to waste on religion :wink:

There was someone really bizarre who was supposed to be one of the Illuminati Lizards. I can't remember who it was (strangely enough I'm not getting any sense from googling ;-) ). It was a singer. I hope it wasn't Rolf Harris O_O.
