I said I would never post again.... but I am back. I have been to two RESCUE events as a friend asked me to go with him.
I found that the speakers were very good and convincing, but provided a lack of contrary opinions (admittedly as would be expected), and also made some very dubious comments. In both of the talks I went to Richard Dawkins was catagorically (sp?) dismissed as having nothing of value to say. While I agree that some of Dawkins views are a bit small minded, they are certainly appear less small minded than those of the speaker.
Todays speaker made the step from highly improbable possibility to impossibility when discussing religion, and hence proved that there must be a creator.
I do not mind people having religion, nor do I mind that the RESCUE event is being put on, however I think an open forum for discussion would be much better for people who are considering their faith.
I am more than willing to discuss faith and beleifs over email or a coffee, so just pm me if you want to know my beleifs and feelings.
P.S. Food has always been used by religions!!...
