    You don't have to edit out number plates anywhere as it happens, since they're publically viewable when walking down the road. Of course it's nice to do as a courtesy and to stop cloning.

    Scott Taylor?

    I often wonder how someone who is incapable of servicing their own car feels qualified to pass judgement on the standard of work carried out by persons who do. What has he done then that makes him stand out from other mechanics? After all, a monkey can service a car to an acceptable standard. ...........and you feel qualified to pass judgement on the standard of work carried by a monkey? I dunno, he is a professional shit-flinger.

    I have them now, no worries Thanks though.
  4. I opened up a news site and found the proof of non-existence of God you were looking for in less than 3 seconds. http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2012/03/tornadoes-roar-through-south-midwest/100256/

    Yeah, the Evo interior is a little... plastic. But that's what you get when you design the car entirely around performance and everything else is an afterthought! Besides, there's not much time to contemplate the dashboard when a quick squeeze of the throttle puts you into orbit
  6. I am saying that the intellectual roots of Naziism (and Soviet Communism) lay in the Enlightment thinking. I therefore reject your invocation of Godwin's Law - there is a valid basis for what I say. There is nothing intellectual about desiring to remove a race from the world. There was also nothing in the Enlightenment about mass murder being a good idea.
  7. Ignoring the obvious Godwin's law violation, are you honestly saying tolerance, reason, knowledge and intellectual thought was what made Hitler decide on genocide?
  8. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_Enlightenment I beg to differ
  9. Sorry a bit late to the party on this one.... "Nature itself decrees"...Really? Nature just called and said you're talking b&&&cks. Look at wolf or lion packs for example. Yes the Male and the Female make the pup/kitten/whatever, but then thats the end of the envolvement of the Male. Usually the Alpha Female and the other Females raise the pups with next to no involvement with the Males. But hey, as long as the Idiots Guide to getting it wrong (or the Bible as it is also known) says Nature is doing it wrong then who are we to argue? That post you quoted was 20
  10. Helix - your tenets can give rise to various quandries. Leaving aside the question of just what "causing harm to another being or thing" can itself mean (pure opinion is going to lead to different answers) how does your view reconcile to killing other animals for food, poisoning ringies, etc., etc.? How about killing or injuring someone or something because it damages your interests e.g. your food supply? How about killing one thing in defence of another. Personal opinions are still going to ensure that, even if averyone were to accept yout tenets, there would be widespread disagreements.
  11. It's arguments like this that keep lawyers wealthy! Ahh semantics. Complicating, well, basically everything, since ancient Greece.
  12. I see what you're saying, but morality is not (or shouldn't be) a hard concept to grasp. For the most part, if it harms another being or thing, it's immoral. If it doesn't, it's not immoral. If you follow those guidelines it's difficult to go far wrong. To quote someone a lot smarter than me: "For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you." - Neil DeGrasse Tyson
  13. I'm afraid I don't define morality by what a book condoning stoning your own children for disobedience declares to be moral or not.
  14. Even if we go with that understanding, "having" does not necessarily imply procreation. It can do in one understanding, but does not have to.
  15. I can accept that the guy disagrees with gay marriage, but calling it immoral is a bit much isn't it? I find it hard to term anything that causes no harm to anyone/thing immoral.
  16. Waaaait I missed that bit, did EG really imply you can't have objective morality without divine threat? I don't even. Seriously?
  17. Does the linking together of two people's families not constitute founding a family? Does adoption not constitute founding a family? (Frankly I also much prefer the idea of a gay married couple adopting than I do a heterosexual married couple reproducing. Reproduction far too often ends in unwanted children. Adoption does not, infact it fixes that issue).
  18. It just strikes me as the stupidest thing in the world to get mad about, if you don't like gay marriage you can simply not get gay married. It doesn't affect you in any other way whatsoever. Just people going out of their way to be offended so that they have something to do. Also it says in the Bible not to pry into politics. But I guess catholics do a good job of ignoring that bit.
  19. I've been told to contact this guy for servicing a car, but I can't for love nor money find any contact details anywhere on the 'net. And the guy who told me that he was the guy to go to has disappeared. So uh, anyone know where I can find him?
  20. Telling a nation which has severe HIV & AIDS problems that condoms are evil is fine, but two blokes getting married is an abomination. Go figure.

    Also - insulting someone's girlfriend is pretty low tbh.

    This. When I am in the Chelsea Tractor without the kids, I drive to the centre line when cornering even when it is outside the "racing line", just to keep the pricks coming the other way honest! Either this is a troll, or you're an idiot who should keep off the roads.

    The whole of the road from that 30 zone to the hill up into Castletown is usually referred to as "Gansey". Oh no it's not. Well, everyone I speak to would call it that. Regardless, not a lot of point speculating until OP clarifies. EDIT: Though I am curious as to what you would refer to that Bay as.

    The whole of the road from that 30 zone to the hill up into Castletown is usually referred to as "Gansey". Also I'd be more concerned about the SIX vehicles I passed this morning in 10metres visibility who couldn't be fucking bothered to put their lights on. Five of them were silver.

    How do you know ,or were you driving it? He did say "If"? Well, I know the "without incident" part is true else the OP would have said "And then slammed headfirst into a wall". I'm assuming the person could see, because I find it unlikely they would overtake otherwise. And no, my car is black.
