    Damn, I meant fourth paragraph. Stroke patient, no fun. I've decided not to wait around and pursue this argument, I'm de-bookmarking (POUF as Mac users say) and leaving. Pigeon, you seem the nicest guy here, I'll miss you. (Thought about...

    atheists can be every bit as militant, doctrinaire, destructive, and yes, fundamentalist, as any religious group has been, and possibly more so. We all know that, but I thought the issue was not revolutionary millennarians(*) who happen to have an...

    Re Merkel, Erdogan and the goatfucking: Erdogan already wants to tear up his refugee-repatriation deal with her. Is he capable of finally doing it because of the goatfucking? Reckon he is. Will she roll over harder to prevent this? And...

    Sorry, Khedron, looks like I plagiarised you but in fact 343 was the last post I could see, and you must have posted yours while I was writing my 344....

    Yeah, they will go over from an ownership to a licensing model, as with everything else, software showing the way. Some pluto(*) will bribe his way to a judgment for his owning the IPR to heads, those of us...

    decapitation will be seen as an unremarkable lifestyle choice "Son, we want you to get ahead" "It's OK, pops, I don't need one"...

    @ Heteromeles: authoritarian fundamentalist atheism and scientism Lewis has a good word for your policy scientism, "Wellsianity". But like others, I'm totally baffled by your "authoritarian fundamentalist atheism" in the present world. Never mind 19th-century anarchism, you do make it...

    Still... in 100 years, when I'm proven right, remember me as a prophet! OK, in a hundred years we shall have the Tricoteuses of the Order of St. Geoff, knitting neck-stump-warmers....

    Recte to 316: Formatting blunder, Read: "and the fiqh tries to give predictable answers"....
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    As I understand it, Sharia is about things like what to eat (halal meat, for example), when to pray, when to hold Ramadan, what to do during Ramadan, and other stuff about how one is supposed to conduct one's life...

    Can you point to one single solitary "liberal" media or website that doesn't despise the Westboro Christian Satanists "church"? I think that's precisely what Dirk meant, actually. I read him as saying that the liberals despise WBC but give the...

    Member of the EEA, which essentially means Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein subject to the Four Freedoms and competition rules and much else but not the CAP. Effectively in the EU, you could say that, just not with a vote; and...

    I'm fearing the bloody option is becoming increasingly likely. Damn, and I can't knit. Do I have time to learn before we set up the guillotine, do you think?...

    Weighty evidence of shock-horror: Note the Christian cross on her monument. Good grief, what would we expect to be put on the grave of a pious Austrian woman in 1907? The hammer and sickle?...

    Apart from one gets a free pass from liberals and the other doesn't. I feel bitten by this one myself, so let me look at it. If we assume two tribes, one of the things people regularly do is to...

    The bit you missed was Sharia Islam ie Muslims who want Sharia Law implemented. Hmm, what I don't get was how someone can be a Muslim without wanting Shari'a implemented, for values of "wanting" not necessarily covering imposition to replace...

    they had acted as chaplains in the British Army during the Second World War. But in those days everyone had been "in the war", and those who worked at home in tail functions were by far the noisiest about it....

    Afterthought, EC: GCK surely deserves a nod for rooting for the Boers in the eponymous war. Not because he liked their attitudes to the Africans, but because he abominated British predatory imperialism, Rhodes and all that. Took guts. Respect, as...

    I don't like absolutely everything he said. He could be so fond of his paradoxes than he became just silly. His anti-semitism is an aspect of GCK I find difficult. In his defence I would say that it seemed motivated...

    A surprising number of Christian fundamentalists have never opened the Bible. Heard from a preacher-man (not a seminarian, the Elmer Gantry type): "What, you mean that St. Paul was a Jew?" He had no idea. I mentioned confusing the Africans,...

    and has a value comparable to people continually birching each other's backs in order to ensure that people's backs continue to be birched. I wonder whether the youngsters understand that ancient phrase "taking in one another's washing" from the days...

    Ha! Right now I'd like to go to the Scottish Riviera to get some sun... How do you predict the weather in Scotland/Norway/Snowdonia/Lakeland? "If you can see the mountains, it means it's going to rain. If you can't see the...

  • Commented on A plaintive request
    It's a false equation, all too common in the west; the equivalent would be conflating Christianity with Neo-Nazism. Some friends and I have long used the back-formation "christianist". It's more transparent than "Domininionist" in the USA....

    IIRC, the Royal Norwegian Navy managed to confuse the Americans by having a female submarine commander back in the 1990s Didn't know that, but I'm all for confusing the Americans whenever possible. Some of our forenames are not entirely transparent...

    If Lockheed Martin has the breakthru they claim, and it's just pure engineering work from here on, we've got a wonderful future opening up.... So potentially we can end air pollution in a decade. I'm way incompetent to comment the...

    Mea culpa, I have not paid much attention to OGH's plaintive request for good news. From today's newspaper: The summer is when 18-year-olds are conscripted to do their military service, and this is the first year of gender-neutral drafting. Previous...

    Funny you should say that. I was just the other day commenting about how some wrinklies can be perfectly content sitting on a park bench with their faces in the sun, and how I can't. Just can't. That might mean...
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    If people want to lie around and watch TV all day, I pity them, but I wouldn't want to stop them. You are, of course, talking about the proles. I have often wondered what the super-rich do all day, and...
