Watergate was a coverup. Yes conspiring does exist but the conspiracy theory rhetoric is a complete waste of time and never ends because they don't accept provided evidence proving there claims are wrong.
I wonder if my double facepalm will be deleted again on that 9/11 blog. Some atheists just can't make the leap to being a skeptic. You can't be a real skeptic if you are not an atheist (non-believer) but you can be an atheist and believe in conspiracy and paranormal crap.
Not a problem here -I do understand that these are emotional issues and have had a lifetime of practice discussing them. I like to think that those of us independent thinkers are a cut above -if that's not being too pompous...
Yes, I remember my time in Brussels very fondly. It was a beautiful and interesting city, but most of all I stuffed myself full of beer, waffles, fries, and chocolate. It might have been the most delicious (and gluttonous) weekend of my life. I love traveling and so far I've been lucky enough to make it work and still feed myself most of the time. There are great things on this side of the pond of course, but if I were you I'd treasure my time in Europe more. Maybe it's a "grass is greener" kind of thing, but with the exception of New York I'd say all my favorite places in the world are much closer to you than to me. Enjoy it while you're there!
Hello and a friendly welcome to Matt VDB from Belgium.
We are pleased to see you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.
This is the greatest atheist meeting place with its 14,000 bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.
