    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.

    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.

    To quote Monty Pythons' Holy Grail:
    King Arthur to Sir Bedevere "This new found science amazes me! Tell me once again how sheeps bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes?" Wink

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

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