Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Theresa was a witch, and evil monster that should never have been allowed near a patient, let alone children. Sadism is very much a tenet of christianity.

Hubbard sucked as a writer.

Admit it, the gargantuan cod-pieces were what fascinated you most.

Agreed on Theresa. Hitchens wrote that terminally ill patients were kept in squalor, pain relief was restricted to paracetamol. And where did all the money go? Not on the poor, that's for sure...

I only saw the film. I'm amazed they could get the Harriers to fly after so many years in storage. They were hard enough to start up when they were new.

I can only wonder what Travolta got from the whole mad experience. Maybe Scientology's CFO needed a huge box office failure for some arcane reason.

Dr Who (new), Haven, Arrow, Dollhouse, Eureka, Games of Throne, Grimm... these days we are spoiled.
But Firefly was and is number one.
BTW Did you know that they may start up again?
The acting and directing made Firefly so boring I couldn't get into it enough to finish the first episode.

Dr Who and Eureka employed decent actors and special effects but their target audience was mostly kids.

BTW, Dr Who is supposed to have a special Christmas episode.:)

I haven't read Hitchens' views on here, I haven't read anything from Hitchens actually. But it's pretty much common knowledge of the atrocities she purported while in the guise of "helping" people. Even Penn and Teller couldn't ignore adding her history to one of their fact based shows. NatGeo even did a biography on here. She was that horrible of a person.

It’s true the hospice patients lived in squalor. But we’re talking Calcutta India. The average person lives in squalor. The garbage trucks go down the streets and pick up the dead bodies. There’s not enough money in the world to bring Calcutta from the brink of squalor. 14 million people live there.

Christopher Hitchens - What was his contribution to the indigent? Was he there in the trenches with this Dear women helping? Did he win the Nobel Peace Prize? No, he kicked back and drank his whisky and complained about her with a cigarette in his hand.

The do nothings complaining about the do somethings. How noble of this man Hitchens. Then his followers who are also do nothings join his cause. Look, I didn’t know Mother Teresa. Her helping the poor was not to gain fame and fortune.

She was in the filth and the stench everyday for pennies a day trying to do something for these poor people. Who in the hell can criticize someone for that?

A. Hitchens.

And your contribution to the indigent is what?

Who can criticize someone who helps minister to the poor?

How many have you helped in hospice care?

The do nothings always are cocky and complain about the do somethings.

Hitchens was too busy trying to get his sausage smoked to care about anybody else.

A lawyer was riding his donkey to court. A man yells,“nice ass.” The lawyer tips his sombrero and says,“gracias.” An observer asked the man,“who were you referring too?”“The dumb ass of course,” the man replied followed by a smile.
The moral of the story? When riding a dumb ass, always be sure there is a noticeable distinction between ass and man.
"Who were you referring too?"

What does that mean in English?

You're always the simple one. India's creating more millionaires than the US- there is money enough.

Palliative care does not equal paracetamol plus a baptism against the will of dying person's family.

Teresa took blood money from Charles Keating.

Teresa supported Indira Gandhi's suspension of civil liberties.

Teresa was a money laundering tool for the vatican. End of.

Good riddance. Cue Elton John singing "Sandals in the Bin"

She believed that suffering was beautiful and Christlike.

She was a good person who was brutally and tragically warped by her beliefs and religion.

Unfortunately, she was duped into doing more for the Vatican than the indigent and suffering.

She could have, and would have, done more if she hadn't been so critically damaged by religion.
