Female Genital Mutilation – A Nuanced Look at the First Trial

Dr Dhanuson Dharmasena is one of the first people to be charged in the UK under a landmark case allowing for the prosecution of people involved in aiding and abetting the crime of female genital mutilation. Female Genital Mutilation is not a good practice. I have long stood against it. However I have had issues …

Progress

We have progressed a lot in the UK, today marks the first day we recognise gay marriage. And the UK hasn’t sunk into the ocean or perished in a ball of fire. And at this point I still wish to spend my life with Hera rather than “go gay”. I have no real urge to …

Katie Hopkins – Verbal Diarrhoea is not a qualification

Katie Hopkins is a special piece of work. There are some reality shows that I can understand. I despise anything involving celebrity, I don’t want to see some person who is famous for fame’s sake munch on Kangaroo Testicles for fame. Eat testicles for fun? That I can get behind. But not for the sole …

Is This Humane or Wahaabism?

We all know that Islam’s modern face is tarnished by the spectre of extremism and apologetics who cover for the extremists. We know that the good in Islam is being poisoned by the bad and that real progress cannot take place without Muslims willingly ostracising their fundamentalists. Right now, the biggest threat to Islam is …

Not the Ducks! – Quacks, Wikipedia and True Scientific Discourse

You won’t believe how handy Wikipedia is to a medic in training, sometimes you just need to look something up. A condition, a drug or a procedure, and you don’t have a book to hand. And often you may not know which book the procedure is detailed, so what do you do? Wikipedia. See while …

Talking Bout Our Generation

Kids these days…. Oh you all know what I am going to say next. They have no respect. They have terrible music. Their taste in clothes is appalling. They have stupid hair. Kids these days is a battle cry of the older generation and kids these days were destroying civilisation for the past 4000 years. …

Anne Graham – Put down the Bible, Learn to be Nicer

The problem with assuming that a single book has all the answers to morality is that you do terrible things. Atheism as a group has a moral code that’s grown. Yes we have had “immoral” atheists but they were not immoral due to their atheism but due to their adoption of a moral code. We …

Age of Kali – Honour is Earned by How You Treat Those You Love

“We had to do it, there was no hope for them and we had to teach others not to fall in love. It would dilute the values. This is not like the city that is poisoned by the decadence of the West. We do not want that here. I have saved others from making this …

What Am I Up To?

So I got a “small” job writing a paper. A scientific paper. That’s right… I am going to (fingers crossed) get published. When I (hopefully) have it published then I will be super proud of it and show you all but at the moment it’s a work in progress. Cross your fingers, cross your toes …

If Only Ken Ham Made These Arguments! – A Rebuttal

This one’s also from the Christian Post and was part of a request by a creationist who took umbrage to my posts on evolution. Upon insisting that these 5 Christian Arguments are solid, and that had Ken Ham pulled these out, Bill Nye would have crumbled. I was intruiged, because I came up with a …
