I doubted the Christian doctrine some 30 years ago and left the church,I never looked back.

Is that an invitation to the Mick to cycle north to pick it? Perhaps it is merely a boast in the "spot the first daff" competition I didn't notice.

What other pointless spot-the-first-of competitions might be organised as a distraction from a discussion of more interesting matters? "First white van of the morning trying to run me over", perhaps? "First curmudgeonly post of the day in the CUK forums"? :-)

Picked two yesterday afternoon up in our wood.
Two only, and they're in a narrow vase on the table opening up. One yellow, the other white.
Maybe a few more will be ready in the next day or so, though not looked today.

5th Feb for this year was the same date for 2004.

Apparently according to that survey I'm 100% humanist.

About to have a read Al.But before I do a little story. IIRC Linda Smith was appointed President or some other official position and it was only later she said " I better join it then ".

I'm 100% humanist too.
I may do the survey again to see if I can be 0% humanist.

Tell us what happened then?

From what I can make out Humanists dont believe in any gods or spiritual things but do care about their fellow human beings.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. CTC gone but not forgotten!

I just answered the questions differently because you can tell what the whole thing is about due to the oversimplified questions.

It's a load of tosh really.

Quite. As is humanism, since it seems to ape the more familiar (to us) monotheistic religions whilst doing away with the god authority figure. "Humanity" is substituted as the god-authority figure. Humans remain, somehow, at the centre of "everything" and our somewhat suspect desires and needs the be-all and end-all.

The trouble is that, as with the gods of monotheistic religions, different humans develop different and contradictory be-alls and end-alls. After all, this is what happened when humans invented their various gods with their various directives.

Personally I'd rather worship the cat. At least you know from the outset that it's all about the cat and not you. :-)

We have three of the things, and there's a possibility that we might inherit a fourth at the weekend. :cry:

BTW, just picked four daffodils.

One for each of the cats and one for Mrs F?
