I believe Myself to be open minded how others choose to live there lives in other cultures, but reading in the bbc news about a clerics saying women are to blame for earthquakes. Putting aside the joke side of this , it seems so unreal that peaple can believe this in the modern world[

It is amazing how far behind the rest of the world some still are.

The Phelps family in America are just as crazy.

Well that's a turn up, isn't it? It's been my experience that men get blamed for everything by women, as I'm sure that any man who's ever been in a relationship has found. Smile

It's no big surprise it came from a cleric though. Religion is about 2000 years behind the rest of the free-thinking, reasonably intelligent world.

Recycled propaganda in an effort to slowly 'manufacture consent' for war with Iran?

Wasn't Bush II told to bomb the crap out of Iraq by 'God'? Its a bit weird that was accepted, yet the lunacy is the same.

LOL Smile Known in the modern world as a " Clerical Error " .....Grin

The cause and excuse for just about every blunder from a tiny " Typo " to pushing the big red button for waiter service....Smile

Only thing that suprises me is that we have not as yet, Blown this poor planet to bits already, But there is still time, Something as individuals we have a limited amount of....!!!

I read a last week that the population of planet earth passed 7 billion a few days ago, The bit that shocked me most is that we passed 6 billion only 12 years ago, with the shortage of resources as it is Its very frightening for the future of our kids.
That will get us before the wars will so plenty of time!

I've been saying for years that many of the planet's problems are down to too many people. Unfortunately the solutions are all pretty controversial and highly unlikely to be adopted any time soon.

I blame religion for that. Mother Theresa et al espousing no contraception, no pill, no condoms (in Aids-ravaged Africa).

another article that says we have not quite reached 7 billion says im the 2,922,172,910th person alive at the time i was born and 76,469,474,326th person ever born at that time, at the present rate there will be 10 billion population in the next 38 years.

What will probably get us in the end will be all the fighting over the remaning scarce resources....
