I must admit I had to look this guy up Leap, as I had never heard of him. What I found certainly amused me!
Some of his videos made me laugh out loud :)

Underneath all the humour though, I found his message to be a very wise one, and very true.
I do however, know that this thread will upset some of our own loveable contributors with 'apocalyptic delusions' of their own!

I found info on Pat Condell at the following site:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Condell

...and a very insightful quote from him:

"It seems to me that fundamentalist Christians, jihadist Muslims and settlement-building Jews are causing more than their share of trouble in the world. World events are being driven by people with apocalyptic delusions, while here in Britain a paralysing liberal guilt allows religious bigots to use intimidation and violence to stamp out free speech. If you canít get laughs out of all that, you canít get them out of anything."[6]

suzi you make me laugh. You write 'World events are being driven by people with apocalyptic delusions

No more so than the secular gw alarmist making billions out of a very corrupt industry. To think they use 'science'as a mask for their hypocrisy.

My only gripe with Mr Condell is he weaves up higher stakes of the loony subjects he talks about than what they necessarily are (although having said that he is often not far away from the accurate case).
Having said that I generally agree with him.

And find it that our resident nutcase is in a position where, faced with an anti-Christian AND anti-Muslim anti-theological viewpoint, he instead attacks the same science that gave him a computer to share his inane thoughts.

So far this thread is going quite well!

Runner <"suzi you make me laugh. You write 'World events are being driven by people with apocalyptic delusions"

Dearest Runner, my sole porpose in joining in these discussions is just to make you laugh :)

In actual fact, it wasn't me who made up the words above, but Pat Condell.

I would have thought you would have embraced his discussions on jihadist Muslims?
