To all my not likely to be Jewish friends, tomorrow is the beginning of Hanukah. Mozeltof ....Or however that greeting is spelled.

Oh, desr, I have reached my freebie limit with the Eco! Not sure that I want to pat £1/week for the few times I read it.

Maybe the £1 would rather be caressed instead?

I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

I like caressing £s . . .

Dammit did those crafty Brits fix the posts so that only subscribers could read them?   I used to subscribe to the magazine, several years ago.  In this instance they recently hustled me to spend 12 dollars for 12 weeks of online news at the Economist.   I know that the sneaky bastards will try to extend the tickler subscription when it expires....most likely for a lot more than 12 dollars.  I must be vigilant.

Sorry if I referred you to something that was somehow unavailable without paying.   I am a bit naive about stuff like that, it would seem.

In any case it seems that the Chileans are losing their faith.  Catholics are regularly reverting to the protestant way and an alarming (to the clergy) number of them are becoming nones and/or outright atheists.  Chile is a relatively prosperous and stable nation. It is interesting to note that prosperity and education tends to upset religionists apple cart.

I guessed that was the subject of the item. Be interesting to know the indigene/immigrant ratio there compared to other S American countries. Perhaps some of their old beliefs will make a comeback!

If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

That's so unfair! I also want to be an Antichrist. Is there a club I can join? :popcorn:

I found a doozy.  I know this is Landover Baptist, but I can swear I've heard fundies actually make this argument:

 
Apparently people haven't been peeing either for a long time.
CRANKED SCIENCE as usual. 
The only thing possible the world needs saving from are the ones running it.
Oh lord, save us from those wanting to save us.

Icarus beat me to it, one can only assume that theists never piss, crap, flush the loo, wash themselves, their clothes, their cars or water their lawns or gardens! Etc.
Yup, me too. I didn't read the posts in advance.
