1. As I said above, people make their own perceptions and interpretations of everything, not just Religion, so to blame the Religion for this is foolish. It isn't a question of 'blame' here, it is one of validity. 2. The thought behind an action far out ways the action itself . For example, if you ...

About time too. Hopefully we will see more progress like this, and at a greater pace. This is only the first step but it has taken far too long.

Religion, in my opinion isn't flawed, because it can be interpreted in many ways, so it can be interpreted the right way. And also the wrong way...? This is what I was trying to get at. It seems that some religions can be tailored to suit your own beliefs. How can there by any truth in it if you ca...

Hat-tricks for Ronaldo and Messi too...

La Liga is becoming a more skillful, more exotic, more expensive SPL. How can anyone other than Barca or Real hope to win the title in the foreseeable future?

I know he isn't saying that - I am genuinely curious. Essentially all religions are roughly a different version of the same idea Yes and no... I would say that all religions are man-made concepts and therefore that would be the most common feature. It is no coincidence that every culture seems to ha...

Does that mean God helps you make the wrong decisions? Credit where credit is due etc.

I was disappointed with Arsenal today. After Phil Neville admitted that Arsenal weren't as easy to 'rough up' as they used to be I had begun to think this might be a good year for them. Of course it still might be but you simply cannot turn leads into losses like they did today. I know that United h...

Seeing Rooney in Madrid would be interesting. An english player applying his trade abroad is a rare sight to see. I only know a handful of englishmen who have played outside their country in the last decade. Hopefully, it doesnt change into a man u scenario again where rooney did all the work and c...

I would recommend variation to your training, definitely. Last year I got into the habit of swimming twice a week, as well as playing football three times a week. Swimming definitely helped aid recovery as well improve overall fitness. For working on 'explosiveness', by which I assume you mean accel...

This is the most pathetic thing I have heard. If I excluded the word Nazi in my post would have still made it's point very clearly. This is a poor excuse for a get out of jail card, trying to counter my argument by using "Internet forum rules," is just laughable. No it wouldn't have.I am ...

1. I didn't say I was right, I just like practising my Critical Thinking skills I learnt in school :D I suggest you get back to class and knuckle down. You need to do some work. Btw, I don't really have any problem with Islam or question it, nor it's practitioners. You obviously do or you wouldn't ...

Godwin's Law

Alas gone are the days when I was a regular EF Admin (hint hint...) but I feel that I should draw everyone's attention to this. I won't name names but recently this issue came up and it would be good if everyone were aware of it. What follows is standard internet protocol. Godwin's Law has two key a...
