Yes, a million per cent increase in press releases will ensure everything's fine.

Einstein lived in a period when socially it was almost impossible to admit to atheism, Stephen Hawking has gone on record as being an Atheist. or does Einstein Trump Hawking. How about Hawking and Turing?

 

Being a clever man, Einstein appears to have reached the conclusion that god as envisaged by most religious people on earth (an anthropomorphic creation) was not compatible with what he learnt through scientific understanding of the universe.  He also rejected a 'god' who could have any interest in humanity's actions or morality.

 

But he stopped short of atheism.

In my experience, the British working class is the most tolerant of its kind probably in the world 

 

Your experience in this matter is what exactly?

Something that those Imams protesting about Eric Pickles' letter won't be keen for us to read:

It's possible - and I'd suggest healthy - to think both Pickles and these mosques are wrong.

As long as you are prepared to put up with your beliefs and opinions, whatever they might be, also being mocked occasionally.

 

It's a rugby league forum.  We should all have a sense of our own ridiculousness.

Its a sop to those few  remaining pensioners with any accessible savings  who have been subsidising you avoricious debt-ridden mortgagees through the reigns of successive governments. We didn't fight the war just to keep you lot in Guardian subscriptions, tofu and Waitrose gift cards y'know. Clip round the  ear ole, that what you need. Modern yoof? Pah! You don't know you're born!

 

Oh dear, grandad's gone off on one again.  Better switch off his hearing aid.

Although the wine and the bread symbolise/represent Jesus of nazareth's blood and body- he said so himself more or less . Personally I quite like this

 

Nope. This is my body.  Not, this is to help you remember my body.

 

People were burned at the stake for not understanding the difference.  And then when the local Earl changed his mind they were burned at the stake for thinking what they'd thought before.

I'm in the rather strange position of agreeing with just about everyone on this thread.

 

I think someone has done a proper sales job on Warrington and they have taken the bait in all innocence, thinking that it is their social and corporate responsibility to get people to "vape" instead of hiding in the bogs for a quick nicotine fix.

 

I don't smoke myself but I am very sympathetic with Saintslass who obviously sees the relative benefits of vaping, but it also seems to be early days in terms of the genuine advantages of e-cigs.

 

I do find it a bit hypocritical to sell beer in 2 pint pots and then take the moral high ground about smoking, but I really do think that Warrington are trying to do the right thing. They have hardly sold their soul to the devil by taking money from a company who seem to provide a better alternative to fags for everyone inside and outside the stadium.

 

Sorry, I'll stop now because sitting on this fence is hurting my trumper...

 

May I remind you that this is the internet and that fairness and balance have no place here.

Read and then judge.

 

 

I've read plenty.  I've also shared space with vaping folk.

 

It's how I know there's not a single shred of evidence they help smokers quit, no evidence either way on the level of harm they cause vapers or those around them, and that they stink.

So surrender is the option you're taking?

 

Like all our finest representatives he's off to join rugby union.

Are you accusing me of lying?

 

Given that the vapor from e-cigs lingers and smells, I'll just assume you're in denial about it.  Kinda like how smokers in general don't notice their odour.

 I think it is way too early to decide whether they are totally harmless yet, who knows what we may be hearing in 5-10 years time.

 

The consensus seems to be, "Probably better than cigarettes but that's not saying much."

They do not produce smoke.  They produce water vapour.

 

Next time someone breathes some of their godawful stink next to me I'll be sure and spot the difference.

it looks as though they have achieved their aim.

 

Really?  I missed the part where France has become a caliphate.

 

They killed some people, died as losers and failed.  The maggots can now rot.
