no no no, Magiccarpet you fool, you have completely grasped the wrong end of the stick.

I am suggesting that you get some new friends because clearly you feel left out by the people currently around you, who themselves are bonding because of a shared culture or heritage.

this thread is saying that a shared culture or heratige, within a family or in a social group is important for one's sense of identity. if you have no culture you dont know who you are.

according to a recent report 82% of Christian teenagers no longer go to Church. in fact just a stone's throw from the university a Church was recently converted into an RnB nightclub ... how sacrilegous. (sp?)

see? people are losing their religion. religion is part of culture. shops are open on xmas day. even midnight mass was empty. people no longer celebrate the sabbath with sunday lunch. its such a loss of culture.

that's what I never completely understood. there are so many differing religions and sects in the world, yet there is one God/no God/many Gods. the only thing that organised religion can do is pit people against people and cause violence and riots. the sooner that religion can explain the findings of science (if it can at all) the better. if it can't ... then it seems a very outmoded train of thought.

all the religions tech the same thing-to love another and treat people respectfully. religion explains all of scienxce

Ok, in the Bible (I forget where, somewhere in the Old Testament) it explicitly says that "it is a sin to do something if you expect reward for it" - or words to that effect.

Now think about confessions, and prayers. Christians pray to God so that He can forgive you your sins - it's even in the Lord's Prayer. In short, they expect reward for praying - the reward of forgiveness.

Therefore Christians continually sin, even if it is inadvertant.

true!

and also, the sin of greed, wanting material possessions, isnt that the reason we all study hard to get well paid jobs?

think you might just have found your reason why 82% of kids don't go to church

I'm not sure the majority of people in this country would describe themselves as all these definitions of a 'Christian'.

i think that Britain is such a multicultural "melting pot" that the British sadly no longer have any ethnic identity, unless you count multiculturalism as being an identity of sorts. it is a shame. but it's always been that way, Britain welcomes with open arms ppl from all walks of life from anywhere else in the world. i'm not gonna start an immigration debate or anything here.
Well I guess thats one of tthe prices you have to pay when you destroy others culture. The Brits aint no saints mate !
