    I could agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

    I did not realise that you channeled "id" from your pancreas.

    This is an interesting development.

    Jono from religious terrorism thread

    ......There was an old joke about an Irish atheist asked whether he was a Catholic atheist or a Protestant atheist.
    [Other atheistic agitprop and moral equivalence ignored][/QUOTE]

    AC: In the atheist world I much prefer to mix with Catholic atheists rather than Prodo atheists. You can joke more with them and we don't harp on about Bible inaccuracies because the Bible is never important in Catholicism. We can reminisce about Catholic childhoods, the good and bad, the particularities about nuns and Catholic life. The anti-prodo songs can still stir us even though we don't believe anymore - like Faith of Our Fathers by Frank Paterson

    I've known some protestants with good senses of humour and most are not biblical inerrantists. That seems to be an issue with chess-playing protestants.

    Daniel Kelsall, accused of murder if Morgan Huxley , is a chess player and the prosecutor sort of accuses him of using strategy to make up fake stories of who done it. Well if Daniel is found guilty he will have plenty of time to brush up on his chess.

    They certainly have rough justice in the USA if they throw suspects under buses - in the Philippines decades ago if a bus had accidentally hit someone they would reverse over them again to make sure as a funeral was a lot cheaper than hospital. There were no lawyers chasing ambulances over there

    AC: well Michael I was referring to "your" tribe's claim to land rights in Palestine, it has been controversially recognised after vacancy of about 2,000 years whereas the Aboriginal land right's claim to your place of abode would be maximum vacancy of 180 years. You are not being consistent.

    The Jews claim land rights to Palestine though being exiled by the Romans in about year 68CE after a residency of about a thousand years that was reportedly obtained by violence (in ancient texts BTW). . The Aborigines had a residency of 40,000 to 100,000 years based on migration without violence so is totally uncontested. The Aborigines lost their land due to violence only 200 years ago yet you fail to recognise their land rights. If you recognise Israeli land rights to Palestine though they were obtained by violence then you should also recognise much-recent Aboriginal land rights to "your" properties especially when originally obtained by non-violence. There must be consistency in international law and morality so that decisions are understandable and accepted otherwise it is the law of the jungle and endless conflict and injustice.
