The Problem of Morality

Jack Kerwick’s article on Atheism and the Problem of Morality got me thinking. Why do people think atheists have a problem with morality. Well apart from the fact it is a typically carpenter god orientated article it’s filled with some of the standard and sadly all to common notions about our morality. Morality is one …

Let them Eat Rice and Beans

I understand Americans have a festival dedicated to eating food tomorrow. But spare a thought for those on food stamps. Fox News Certainly hasn’t. Apparently, Andrea Tantaros thinks the food stamps would make a great diet for people to go on. In that vein, I should sell untreated water as a great way to lose …

If you vote for ignorance you just breed more…

Apparently the Republican Party is planning to run with Rubio for 2016. Really? Rubio? I won’t mock his love of rap music as a positive message (Some of it is positive, but mainstream rap is extremely entrenched in overt misogyny and violence and the glorification of such.) The Republicans need some cool and honestly if …

Hags of Lag – Leeeerroooooyyy Jeeenkins

Remember the attempt to shame Colleen Lachowicz (the Democratic Candidate for State Senate in Maine)? It basically involved “attempting to portray her in a negative light due to her hobby”. Her hobby being World of Warcraft. In particular her choice of playing as a Orc Rogue (and a high level one at that too). Nothing …

Age of Kali – No Honour For Old Men

India is changing. It’s not changing in a small way, it’s changing fast. It’s doing what took centuries for western nations to achieve in decades. But this means that there is a massive dichotomy between the two faces of India. Fast moving development of cities is not and cannot really be matched by the countryside. …

How to Dismantle a functioning Medical System

The fascination with the dismantling of a socialised medical system is a conservative wet dream. It’s as if the very presence of the NHS is a fetid sore on the arse of the United Kingdom rather than the reality. The NHS is a shining example of what socialised medicine can do. The UK isn’t the …

Don’t Stop Reporting II

I didn’t really do a blog post celebrating a year of A Million Gods, but today’s events kind of reminded me of when I started. Today Marie Colvin and Remie Ochlik were killed in Homs as part of the Bashar Al-Assad Government’s offensive on the Syrian people. It is rumoured that they were killed as …

Modern Slavery

It’s been a long while since I was back home, I am a Mancunian and I do miss it all the time. But things seem to have changed since I left. This is frankly despicable, it’s not a scheme that encourages labour, it’s a scheme that encourages slavery. You know that thing where you work and you …

Help! Help! I am being oppressed.

Don’t worry Madam! I am a medical student. Let me call you a Waaahmbulance! Prayer doesn’t belong in schools, it’s exclusive. It treats only a specific brand of Christianity as acceptable (I am pretty sure you would consider the song Jerusalem blasphemy and indeed sedition despite being a Church of England hymn) and worse it hurts any …

Centurion – It’s the hindu way or the highway.

Well I have hit 100 posts! And it coincides with Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri the education minister of a state in India saying things that indicate how off his rocker he really is. The Education Minister of Karnataka believes that they should force all children to read the bhagavad gita for an hour every day. “The Bhagavad …
