Much love to Stephen Fry!

he is a brilliant man, it's a shame he has bipolar disorder but I guess it gives hope to other people with mental disorders, every cloud ( :

A brilliant man has got to be an understatement, he's practically a national treasure. When he dies I think I will actually mourn. Grew up watching him, still watch him and there will be a massive hole if he were to ever disappear.

he did a really good speech against the Catholic church in a debate whether the church was a force for evil with Hitchens and they ******* owned them
#11 to #10 - lolabunny (01/31/2013) [-]
Was that the "what are you for?" speech?

yeah

Well ALOT of the big thinkers of our time have/had some kind of mental illness
#14 to #6 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Makes you wonder if its really an "illness" to be honest doesn't it?
#51 to #14 - xaxoz (02/01/2013) [-]
Well i would call it a illness but because this illness puts out some of the centres in the brain other centres gets more attention and are trained more (if that makes any sense?)

he is a very nice guy now though. he always talks about being kind to each other and things
User avatar #20 to #19 - fantomen (01/31/2013) [-]
Yeah, I like him too, he seems like a nice guy, but you'd never expect it with a background like that.

is nitpicking the old testament, which was written for the jewish culture of that time, the only thing an atheist knows how to do?
User avatar #29 to #28 - thebritishguy (01/31/2013) [-]
because the new testament is all sunshine and rainbows right? what about the part which says women can't teach or have authority over men? what about the part which says gays and atheists are evil, deceitful, inventors of evil things and will go to hell? what about the part were Jesus says to beat your slaves? the part about staying away from atheists and not making friends as they have evil hearts? the part about Jews being vain talkers and decievers who's "mouths must be stopped"? telling you to hate the world? these are only a few
#33 to #29 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
nothing is all sunshine and rainbows. you also need to keep everything in context.
1. the part about women not to teach or have authority over men, was because women were still considered inferior at that time.
2. the part about gays and atheists was paul's (i believe) which would be due to homosexuality being pointless and essentially a dead end. If God is real, stating he doesn't exist and not believing in him will certainly not get you into heaven.
3. the part about the slaves. Jesus was quoting Mosaic law to the pharasees to show them how hypocritical and ridiculous they were. he wasn't supporting the beating of slaves.
4. like in number 2. if god is real, atheists would be a bad influence and best stayed away from.
5. there are vain talkers in every nationality. they never do anyone any good.

Jesus says "not to judge others unless you yourself be judged."

it's not my place to decide what is right and wrong. we should just love and tolerate others regardless of what they think or believe (like bronies do). we are also not supposed to cram our beliefs down others throats. all we are supposed to do is share them. after that, it is out of our hands and up to that person wether or not they choose to accept it.

it would have been easy to create a religion without telling people to kill certain groups or that certain groups are evil.
1. if the bible just says the general opinion at the time then what is the point of it! surely that proves it was just written by people. we still follow that rule up to today by the way that's why women are not allowed to be priests.
2. homosexuality is pointless so they are evil? atheists are evil because they don't believe in facts which have been proven wrong? makes sense. You tell me to tolerate your religion, but your religion does not tolerate me.
3. fair enough
4. I don't have an evil heart but I would rather you stayed away from me if you judge me so
5.the verse said "especially the circumcised" meaning Jews
User avatar #52 to #33 - sorcha (02/01/2013) [-]
and by your logic in the first answer it WAS considered a sin to be gay the times have changed if we are going to pick and choose what we follow then why not this one i could go through all the strange rules in the same section but i'm sure youv'e heard em before
User avatar #36 to #33 - thebritishguy (01/31/2013) [-]
I agree with the conclusion though to an extent, but if your belief is that I am evil and my gay friends are evil just because of who they are and should be avoided like a diseased person I would be a fool to tolerate your beliefs

Menstruating women not allowed within miles of temples. Remind me. How is that a bad thing?
User avatar #54 - mrhaydnn (02/04/2013) [-]
It was written ~2000 years ago, of course the cultures are different to today's. That's common sense.

In Einsteins time, women were still not considered equal, but that doesn't not make his work any less valid. (note - that's just an example)
#55 to #54 - txikaze (03/13/2013) [-]
...but Einstein didn't try to dictate the lives of people. he did not propose a framework of morals and beliefs to be followed.
User avatar #56 to #55 - mrhaydnn (05/19/2013) [-]
I know, I'm saying the culture at the time was different, which would have affected Eisensteins life (though it has nothing to do with his work).
