Re: What is wrong with ex-Peebs!

There may be some here who, like me, don't remember much of their TEB/HEB days. I left the TEB in 1970 as a result of Aberdeen - I was 5 years of age! I spent the remainder of my childhood in what has subsequently become known as the Frost Brethren, of which there is very little mentioned here. The ...

Re: WILL ANYONE EVER STAND UP TO TRUMP OR HALES?

Can I just say that Ian must be a very patient man - and a respected voice of reason here.

I don't necessarily agree with everything you say Ian - but I definitely value it.

Re: I don't believe in the Bible....

I wonder if Jesus Christ of the bible actually existed and if he really said the recorded words?

Re: UK Daily Mail on line- Rebecca Stott's Book

I have ordered my copy and very much look forward to reading it on arrival.. Rebecca was born in the same year as me, and came out of the "jims" with her family after Aberdeen. Where we differ however, is that we remained in the "frosts" up until the mid '80's whereas Rebecca's family came out of th...

Re: Our most reliable pathway to truth

Thank you Ian for that fascinating insight into truth - but as usual, I have a question. Well loads actually, but that is the nature of zobsticks these days... What is truth, and will we as a species ever know it? I re-visited my soft EB youth last week at a funeral for an elderly aunt, and was able...

Re: Great Bridgeford thanks the RRT after Storm Doris

Tricky one this.. On the one hand - a community is in need, and that need is fulfilled to the gratitude of the people On the other - we know that there is an ulterior motive in the EB's actions, but if we try to highlight that to the grateful recipients of charity, then we will be seen as the nasty ...

Re: PAUL'S EPISTLES

All of which could give you carte blanche to act in a way that is much worse than previously... At the risk of sounding like a scratched record - by definintion then, christian as an adjective is another way of describing someone as a decent human being. I don't need to follow the teachings of Jesus...

Re: PAUL'S EPISTLES

With best wishes to all, especially those, who like me, have spent many hours and days and sleepless nights trying to make sense of it all. I sometimes, but rarely, envy those who retain a simplistic view. Life might be easier. But I value intellectual integrity. My best wishes to you and all here ...

Re: Poor souls,they don't know what they're missing...

Perhaps it all comes down to definition again - what is religion? Is it belief in the supernatural and hope of an eternal existence - in which case, present life can go to hell in a handcart? Or is it a desire to do the right thing in the here and now which could be otherwise defined as being a dece...
