Enough is enough!

EarthBelieve in God?

Where was he last night and on that flight from Egypt? It is, of course, the irrational belief in an afterlife by these religious fanatics which encouraged them to carry out the atrocities. They believed that they would now be sitting at God’s right hand because of their martyrdom in His name. How many of you also believe that you will one day die and go to heaven and meet your relatives all over again? It is a stupid childish belief, like a security blanket. The trouble is the fanatics are born out of that same belief. The belief in God is the cause of all of this hatred and violence yet people still blindly accept it is all part of the nonentity’s grand plan for his universe. Come on guys, grow up!

Without doubt the ideology we are facing is on a level comparable with the Nazi’s. We have a professional army financed by us all. It should be geared up to deal with this group without mercy. Like everyone who believes in the great nonentity, you cannot reason with them and they continue to rape, murder and enslave children, men and women, throughout the northern middle east. There remains only one alternative if our way of life is going to be upheld. Continue reading

Monstrous Commotion? Not at its launch!

imageI was invited to the launch of Monstrous Commotion at Waterstone’s in Inverness last night. I’d had a chance to read it prior to the launch. Not impressed. Will read it again and then do a review. It is available from Waterstone’s locally and also from Amazon price £20.

On first speed-read, it’s biggest plus is that the author has cited all of the references to the early sightings and on into the seventies. The references, indices, bibliography etc. took up what must be close to 30% of the book. Anyone studying the subject seriously might find it useful, but his repeatedly going into depth about exaggerated sightings and reports which, for anyone who knows the subject, have no credibility whatsoever, was the most annoying aspect of it and I found that extremely tiresome. This was the very reason why I didn’t include all of these irrelevant sightings in my own book. However, now they are all referenced, perhaps we can let them die a natural death.

The author’s exhausting and repeated references were so brilliantly comprehensive I think his next project should be an in depth publication on how to write an academic book. I learned nothing new from the first read although it did confirm many obvious opinions I and others have had over the years.

His conclusion was so timid he didn’t want to express it in the book or at the launch, but reading between the lines, he thinks the whole thing was dreamt up in a London pub to boost tourism, but this just demonstrates that academics really have no idea about how difficult it is to market a region. If, and it is a HUGE “if” anyone did invent the monster we can only credit Alex Campbell with that achievement, but even his efforts to promote the beast cannot fully explain its origins.

Anyway, I’ll come back with a longer review after the second read. Unfortunately I found it dreadfully boring the first time around so not looking forward to the second read.

Disappointed. I was hoping Adrian Shine would eventually cover the early period of the monster’s history himself, and I am sure it would be in a more engaging manner. It is a shame it has perhaps been pre-empted in such a boring tome.

Is Religion Simply The Desire To Conform?

Here’s the original article if you wish to read it first: Religion is like sex – it can seem absurd, but it works | Jonathan Freedland – not necessary, but I’ve provided it anyway.

Good article. The total absence of any creating force which might keep an eye on each of us many billion individuals, is so obvious, anyone who believes it is quite demonstrably deranged as I shall explain.

Why Are There No REAL Seafood Restaurants In Or Around The City Of Inverness?

LobsterTime after time, while watching James Martin’s Saturday Kitchen, we see celebrity after celebrity with lobster as their food heaven. Why is this? Where is that invisible dividing line between ordinary people and celebrities so that if you fall on one side you will never desire the delights of lobster dishes and if you fall on the other side it is a dish you have always craved?

We have just returned from a vacation in Bude, Cornwall, where we both went to school. In fact it was a school reunion we’d been organising. I was looking forward to the trip because, of course, Bude is on the north Cornwall coast where seafood abounds and many small boats ensure a plentiful supply of crabs and lobsters for the restaurants in the town … or so I thought.

All The World’s Tears

At 6.45am on 26th August, the American people permitted the murder of Alison Parker and Adam Ward.

TV shootingWhile carrying out their work, this TV partnership were gunned down. Adam fell immediately, but Alison did not. She saw this ex-colleague shoot her cameraman and turn the gun upon her. She ran screaming, but could not outpace his bullets which left this attractive 24 year-old girl’s body twitching on the ground as its lifeblood drained away and her brain struggled to accept what was happening to it and never knowing why.

Both left fiancés from the same TV station, one of whom witnessed the event live from the studio and the other had just celebrated their moving in together.

Two lives snuffed out and many more than two people forever traumatised by the action of the ex-colleague who then shot himself.

Islamic Terrorism? Christian Fundamentalism? The Difference Is Just A Couple of Centuries!

Are you able to put aside your beliefs for fifteen minutes? Sadly those who really should be reading this are so indoctrinated that they will probably not.

Human beings have an enormous capacity for love, generosity and compassion, yet those who feel compelled to incorporate that into an organised sanctimonious and convoluted worship of a God who threatens punishment if they misjudge their application of free will, are increasingly adding credence to those who use that very devotion as the foundation for the development of fanaticism and terrorism. Some use the belief in a higher power to convince themselves they should do good works, but others distort those same beliefs to persuade themselves that the same deity requires them to kill and murder to carry out His mysterious plan. What is tragic is that one group don’t seem to realise that their continued conviction in an invented god reinforces the other group’s certainty that their twisted interpretation is justified. Everyone believes in God so God must be great! It is a simple logic.

As our news channels bombard us with stories of beheading, beach massacres and slaughter in mosques, does no one wonder why these individuals are prepared to give up their lives to create such misery and despair within the lives of others?

Only A Fool Ignores Rational Argument – It Is Sad There Are So Many Of Them!

So Eire has chosen to allow gay couples to marry.

Being brought up in the fifties and sixties I had always considered marriage to be a union between male and female. I had felt that while two females or two males should be able to have equal opportunities as a couple, equal rights as a couple and equal status as a couple, somehow the word ‘marriage’ did not apply. Perhaps, I wondered, should there be three different partnerships, marriage for MF, another word for MM and a third for FF? I didn’t know what those words might be.
