‘Induction over the history of science suggests that the best theories we have today will prove more or less untrue at the latest by tomorrow afternoon.’ Fodor, J. ‘Why Pigs don’t have wings,’ London Review of Books, 18th Oct 2007

Richard Dawkins offers his own Christmas message by way of an attack on the Roman Catholic Church. 'Being raised Catholic is worse than child abuse': Latest incendiary claim made by atheist professor Richard Dawkins A bit O.T.T. I would suggest, when the Law of Moses very clearly teaches against child abuse.
Dawkins looks like a man oppressed by his own thinking, he clearly needs setting free by the 'enlightenment' of God's grace. What he cannot see is that the mind needs to have a rational life that is not bound by the material world, but can transcend it through divine revelation. Of course we need to keep our feet on the ground so we don't get carried away with the fairies, but at the same time we need to lift our minds and souls out of the mud and mire of the life that binds our bodies down to earth. If you read this Richard, have a happy Christmas.

Owen Paterson, the Environment Secretary, wishes to push through GM crops and dismisses opponents as modern Luddites. Surely we can have a debate over this without vitriolic attacks on opponents. But this is perhaps the modus operandi of modern government.
