    Re: Where did Spot go?

    I think... the simplest move at this stage...

    is to resurrect spot.

    Týr was only ever a temporary stopgap import onto the site, he belongs elsewhere.

    Besides, it's about time I rejoined the...

    Re: Debates and Discussions.

    It sounds a bit like EA. People used to advertise that here too. I wonder how they're doing.

    NASCAR bravado

    I offer a bewildering quote from Tony Stewart, whose car hit a driver during a race on Saturday.
    "Everybody has hobbies," he said last month, adding that "there are a lot of other things I could be...

    Re: Jesus (PUM) in Islam

    Has Jesus much experience of killing, or is he just going to pick it up as he goes along? I can't think of any occasions where he's killed anybody in the last 2000 years.
  5. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    I thought we'd made it clear that every major monotheistic religion, with the single exception of the Mormons, has done exactly the same in the past, except only Islam has allowed the humane choice...
  6. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    The thread makes it clear ISIS offers various alternatives, of which conversion to Islam is only one.
  7. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    I think "forced" is being used in this context as a synonym for "put under pressure". I don't think the word ever warrants such usage.
  8. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    I'm really trying to make sense of this matter but I simply don't understand what you mean. Hobson famously only offered one horse from his stable and you either took it or you didn't. ISIS offers a...
  9. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    I agree that the Inquisition tested some Christian converts and their descendants for the veracity of their conversion, yes, and that most of those converts had originally been born into the Jewish...
  10. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    I think you need to be careful who you blame for what. I can well imagine the Inquisition burned books, yes. But the burning of Jews at the stake in France in 1288 was, as far as I can tell, a...
  11. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    The Inquisition was a Christian body which had power solely over other Christians, it had no effect whatever on members of any other faith unless it was investigating cases of apostasy. I don't see...
  12. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    But what other conversions could you describe as forced? We were trying to define the term.
  13. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    To clarify what's happening to Christians in ISIS-controlled areas, there's no such thing[1] as a "forced conversion" - as far as I can see the term is meaningless. Each adult Christian is given the...
  14. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    I would hope it's that traditional monotheism is a lethal blight and a permanent shame to the world and has been from its invention.
  15. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    You're reeding too much personal comment which isn't in my writing. I quoted your original post, which I took to be an accurate description of your reaction to the lie. I pointed out one of a host of...
  16. Re: Iraqi jihadists order genital mutilation of all women

    Do you know where their funding predominantly comes from, out of interest? The rulers of Saudi Arabia. The rulers of Saudi Arabia are heavily into suppressing women's rights both domestically and, by...

    If I was called Finnbogi I'd live under a bridge and eat goats.

    Nor, as you say, in Iceland. I checked and her father is shown as Finnbogi.

    Re: Sur Name as a First Name

    They had a Prime Minister who made that name format famous on news broadcasts around the world, Vigdis Finnbogadottir. I presume either Finnboga was her mother or Finbog was her father. I'm trying to...

    Re: Sur Name as a First Name

    It's a long-standing tradition in England, Lon, and has been for centuries. Usually it starts when the mother's maiden surname is given as a middle name, and the child grows up to use that as his...
