    Well, he is 77.

    But like a good wine, well aged and with greater complexity. I just love the Cajun shuffe, it's hypnotic.
    And I love the satire contained in the lyrics.

    It looks like Cheryl in Administration might have stuffed up again. We apologise for this error. Cards will be mailed out as soon as we've sorted out the problem. Cheryl will be first against the wall.

    I was raised in an atheist household, not around religion. Most of my family are atheist, most of my friends are atheist, etc. Atheism was the norm for me.
    I became more actively, consciously atheist when I was confronted by religious people and I was baffled by their beliefs. I did not see the sense in believing something without evidence. To be honest, I still don't; I am a skeptic at heart.

    The only reason I am a theist today is because I had personal experiences which acted as proof, to me, of the gods. I would not encourage people to believe things without seeing it for themselves.

    Atheists don't think about gods, they may think about the human claims of gods.

    All of this is simply claims made by man, do you have any claims made by gods?

    Those scriptures are typeset by humans, and printed by humans, on human-made paper, so Slart's statement is manifestly true.

    If you assert the content's source is other than human, that's your case to make.

    You've missed the point. I suggest a re-read.

    Don't bother. Jan is closed to reasonableness.

    Jan identifies as a dude.

    Also, Jan doesn't answer questions.

    It's amazing how people protract themselves on the internet, or how dozy i am.
