    also: I'd say that today, Christianity is as much "overlooked" in Islam as is Islam in Christianity. I'd also reiterate the point that Christianity preceded Islam by around 600 years, so the "overlooking" of Islam by Christians is a tad more understandable than is that of Christianity by...

    The SJW and equality movement

    Churchill was PM of the UK from 1940 to 1945. One could argue that the unrest in Germany was to some degree due to his obduracy in not kowtowing to Hitler. One could say he played his part in the deaths of around 50 million people. He should have just given in to the Nazi regime like the...

    It's entirely predictable that that's what they'd believe. If they didn't believe it, then what would be the point of Islam? How could it justify its existence as a new and valid religion if it agreed entirely with Christians and Jews? The indications are that Islam as we know it was created by...

    Trump Consciousness

    You know what? Can everybody just take a chill pill and calm down? Left, right, Marxists and fascists, black and white, let's just calm down. You could do worse than what I do: take in a few flashmob videos and re-centre yourselves -- if only for a few minutes: There now. Didn't that help...

    Well, I tried to have a serious exchange, but this person isn't interested, so I'm going to put him/her on ignore and enjoy the silence.

    Ah, you inveterate sceptic (in many matters other than this it seems), I see you couldn't resist reinforcing your dig at Trump. There's a difference between members of the KKK voting for Trump and Trump encouraging them to vote for him because secretly, he's a racist. I'll give that kind of...

    The SJW and equality movement

    I've read the Guardian article (and all the comments thereafter). To my mind, It hardly constitutes a direct, still less a comprehensive refutation of what Swain said; rather, it's a statistical analysis of voting patterns for the civil rights act. It's done in such a way as to make the...

    Conservative or not, long held position or not, has she or has she not got her facts right? So far, I haven't been able to find a refutation of them. I suppose Hubert Humphrey was fairly notable, so I'll concede on that, but as Humphrey himself said: "To those who say, my friends, to those...

    The SJW and equality movement

    I'm not an American, so I've had to do a little research into the history of the US in respect of racial prejudice. I was rather surprised to find that the majority of those in favour of racial discrimination were in fact Democrats rather than Republicans. It's summarised in this video (not sure...

    The OTO and Crowleyanity

    In case, like me, you're wondering what OTO stands for, check out this wikipedia article.

    Since I posted my last message, it appears you've inserted a BBC video. Sorry, but I still don't find the evidence conclusive, and neither, apparently, did the BBC people..."perhaps we'll never find out the real truth about Lewis Carroll..." implying that they haven't found out the real truth...

    I don't believe; I don't not believe. I try to go off evidence -- and what you presented in respect of two specific individuals, I didn't find terribly convincing. It's quite probable that London was a den of iniquity then (as now), but I didn't question that. I questioned your seeming...

    Not to put too fine a point on it, I find your evidence unconvincing. That doesn't necessarily mean Dodson and queen Victoria weren't paedophiles or didn't have an interest in child pornography, but the same could be alleged of very many people, especially with the impunity that comes from the...

    Can you link to evidence for this anywhere on the Web? He might have loved children (which is what "paedophilia" strictly means), but can you also link to evidence that he was an actual child molester? Genuine questions, by the way -- I don't know the answers and await your evidence so I can...
