Only suggestions for coffee.
Jamaican Blue Mountain seems popular on the threads.

Coffee poem for the morning here and the afternoon there
-
Corn Syrup, Coffee, and Bread

Are we that addicted, compliance with corporate shuffle
Moves consensus across the board
Graveyard pageant on radio muffle

A persistent petulant stuffing with chips to dine
Casino house burning like Babylon
As the Towers detonate again and again

The past frozen inside the future
It just turned over like flesh across the bed
From nightmares of padded walls and prison escape

Turn the dial, switch the nob
The station generates our relative earthquake
Cinders from numb evolution

When you go to court and get accused, do you break out into poetry / song?

Is that how you deal with denial?

The BBC article pointed out a significant factor in passing, i.e., that religious affiliation and religious belief do not always coincide. I suspect that's especially true of those who retain membership in their parents' churches, temples, and mosques, but I've seen no data to support that inference. I have seen data that shows that disbelief in God among church members is less uncommon than many would think.

Certainly in the UK there are many people (often middle aged and older) that would say they were christian on a census form that never attend church outside of hatches, matches and dispatches.

We know this is true because church attendance is very low in the UK - yet around half of the population is regarded as christian.

The youth figures show a big change. Non alignment is easier for them.

I don't have any figures on islam but anecdotally know youths from muslim families that don't go to the mosque much, usually drink alcohol, but still say they're muslim. They do tend to give pork a miss, though.

Around half the UK population is Christian and we haven't even moved on to other religions yet. Also, you don't have to attend church to be Christian. Many do their own worships at home.

Only the religious can come up with such vile thoughts - its part of the mental illness of creationism.

Anyone who doesn't believe in your childish myth is cast aside as evil / violent - when the truth is that its your cult that hallucinates about god and hallucinates these horrible thoughts.

shame on you and your failed cult with no evidence of god - and shame on liars like you.

Even with Christianity, you have different beliefs that don't agree eg. Protestants vs Catholics - so your fake idea of unity is shot to sh*t in just one sentence.

You could have bothered to think about it yourself, but your religious mental illness gets in the way of having some balls to tell the truth.
