Pay as you go Chat room

Over £100,000 raised in four days in what appears to be the internet's first pay as you go chat room. Look at the comments with the donations.

At least at £2 a pop it would keep the spammers and trolls down or at least down to people with serious amounts of cash and even then the cash is going to a good IMO cause.

Intelligent Design humour

It is easy to poke fun at the nonsense of “Intelligent Design” and the Now Show (01/12/2006) (around 16:30 into the program if you don't want to listen to the whole thing) do it brilliantly, should be online for 7 days

Book review: The God Delusion

The fact that it is just a week since I got a copy of “The God Delusion” and am now writing about completing it speaks volumes for the book. It is a fascinating, thought provoking book, that does not appear to pull any punches and is written with passion that comes through the text. For the record I've never read any book like it before.

The books defence of Darwin in arguing against Creationism and for Evolution the passion jumps from the pages along with the representation of the facts and arguments from both sides.

The fact that I am still uneasy about writing about it shows what a good job has been done in stifling any criticism of religious belief which is one of the points of the book, it's just easier to ignore religion or pretend you believe than say you don't. However it is when Dawkins moves onto the dangers of religion that the book becomes most interesting or concerning.

I would recommend the book to anyone.
