Very nice - met a couple of Storms - never had the balls to give it to them like that though, but a good way to being inspired - thanks.

Have you guys seen one of Minchin's shows? I have his "Ready For This?" - which is just fantastic. Anyone in the JHB area can, erm, "borrow" it at the next SITP...

I watched the first half an hour of that.

It is clear that Ray really really believes. Strange and alien as that may seem to me, he really does. I would love to understand the basis of that belief better but I think I may just have to accept that people like him and believers in general, simply have a different approach.

I do hear the argument from ignorance from him again and again - "the beautiful flowers and butterflies" - is it really just that? Believers are incapable of looking at the universe and *not* see a creator?

Kudus to Matt and Russel for an interesting yet futile conversation.

ETA: watching the rest ustream.tv is not blocked at work. The fools! mwhahahhaaahaaa /fades

I listened to about 1/2 way and it was clear Ray was just going to repeat his junk until the end of time.

He uses the diversionary pattern of argumentation: Opponent raises a point that buries you, you change the subject.
