We've had a few years of media frenzy on Asylum Seekers, Global Warming, then renamed Climate Change, now Credit Crunch.

What's the next big media frenzy that's going to bore us silly for months/years on end? :tired

Or religion.

Society is going backwards, the more obvious reasons like growth of Islam and Evangelical Christianity due to African immigration is but half of it. There is huge funding flowing into the UK from the US where barking creationist nutjobs (like Palin) have greatly increased their influence in every arm of government and every sector of society.

I have no problem with any religious who just wish to follow their own beliefs but more and more these people are using every sort of lobby, exploiting every means to impose their blithering crap on the rest of us. Abortion, gay marriage, contraception to teenagers, none of their damn business!

An atheist's rant? Have a look at the website of any local church that is doing that stupid Alpha course, follow the links and see where you arrive.

matter, really had a joly good time :D

A bit off topic, but this thread title just reminded me of my favourite TV series ever (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=SvGmL4aG4L4).

The entire point is you can go there and see what Christians actually believe (rather than judge from a Louis Theroux show) and argue back. All that Alpha asks is you take it seriously enough to actually think as you go through - if you are as skeptical/derisory afterwards that's 100% fine - and you also have better grounds to explain why Christians are stupid!!

When is the "all the oil is about to run out" panic going to set in? That will be a biggie...

I don't think the BBC website has quite finished with Global Warming yet. As long as there is still at least *one* climate change sceptic out there...
