Embarrassing Illnesses.

You'd be surprised at anyone agreeing to some of that.

That's easily dismissed. The human body is far from meticulously designed. It is what a product of various changes to an imperfect design would look like.

Reading the whole interview, instead of latching on to one quote, would have made that quite clear.

Perhaps he should have said that, but a weekend paper interview isn't a place for making carefully...

He didn't influence me - I didn't know of him.

That's the thing about atheists, we're free to think what we want, and don't look to leading figures to preach to us.

There is no cowardice involved. There is always bravery from those who have nothing to lose and preach from a safe haven.

He's a musician, not a spokesman for gay issues. He's no more a member of the gay community, needing to speak out on their behalf, than Sandi Toksvig is of the lesbian community.

I expect that is because he is perceived to be gay, something that is an issue of privacy. You can rely on Elton John to campaign on that to the extreme.

He's referring to the extreme cruelty involved in skinning animals alive, a speciality of the Chinese. He's not referring to the whole Chinese population.

It should be remembered that the Chinese...

Spiders eat live prey. They can't digest bacon, nor would they want to. They inject enzymes into their prey, which liquidises their insides, and then they suck them out, leaving a hollow shell from...

"...a good inch across".

Vastly in excess of any native spider to this country. A large house spider would struggle to be a quarter of that.

You don't need that level of speculation to explain religion. Religion is a factor of fear and ignorance, something that develops to bind a community together.
