    Why has religion retained its appeal?

    Perhaps so in some cases- but surely you're not suggesting that logic/ reason is somehow a monopoly held by atheism.

    Why has religion retained its appeal?

    And? It's a site with a view of someone. No study or anything- just an opinion. It doesn't take away the fact that religious beliefs are on the rise. China by 2030 is projected to be more Christian than the US. This is an atheist state.. Leaving aside numbers etc the very fact people question existence and have a wanting to ' know' is in my view, evidence that we are pre wired to search God or look into the spiritual side. Atheism and by extension Naturalism offers no answer to why we have this wanting and need from an evolutionary perspective.

    No all entirely- you have China today showing how people are turning to religion, what is effectively an atheist state. Similarly in Russia - once state sponsored atheism, you now have religion on the rise. Research by Dr Justin Barratt from Oxford, along with other researchers- showed that belief in god/ devine may well be innate. You can find more on this via a simple Google search.

    According to the latest Pew survey- the opposite is happening. In fact, it is the unaffiliated (atheists would be in this group) that will decline whilst religion grows.

    Great insight from Mehdi on how terrorism is handled by media.

    Or "it unfortunately became clear I have no clue about managing and thought being Paul Scholes, with all those years under Sir Alex, this would be a walk in the park"

    Conversely he could end up been seen as the man who stood his ground and put the safety of the UK and the general public at the forefront.

    How can you equate the two? Begum willingly left the UK to join ISIS as a bride of one of their fighters. She may not physically have killed anyone, but she clearly agrees with what ISIS did. She openly stated the Manchester bombings were justified. And who knows what she has done or agreed with whilst being this bride in a war zone.

    Desperate move that's all. I don't think many people listen to the mathematical genius Diane Abbott.

    Terrible decision. They turned to him when Pardew got sacked and he nearly kept them in- would have if there were more games left. They're in play off position so this is a strange move by West Brom- hope they miss out altogether now.

    He did what the majority of people wanted- keep her out of UK and if that meant he had to make her stateless/remove her citizenship- he did that. His argument was to protect the British public- there is no guarantee this person is trustworthy. With her going on later to say the Manchester bombings were justified- a person with that state of mind is best kept away. I doubt you agree with the views so why the big fuss over her..

    How convenient...let me guess the next step- hold the UK government responsible

    Will you eventually buy a hybrid car?

    Some look very nice, but I think there is a way to go before being accepted by the masses. Like the OP, by late 2020 I will be looking for a new car- given the government plans to make diesel public enemy, I may be looking at an hybrid option. I still prefer diesel and it delivers on so many accounts.

    Those pizzas at Fulham just weren't as good as in Leicester.

    Strange one that- if it does happen. So late in to the season and Celtic are on course for the treble (domestic). May be Brendan does not want a challenge next season with a likely hot ready Rangers under Gerrard.

    She could also be fooling everyone. Someone who believes the Manchester bombing was justified, would be a potential danger to people.

    Should not be allowed back despite her pregnancy- she's carrying the child of an ISIS member and went over there as an ISIS whore bride with the other girls. Tough luck- you knew what you were doing and now stay put.

    Rate the last film that you've seen - part two

    Greenbook 8.5/10 Didn't expect this to be as enjoyable as it turned out to be. Marhashala Ali has got to be the next big non white hollywood star- so watchable and talented.

    Liam Neeson Interview.

    He's still watchable and the last film I saw of his, Widows, was slightly different- ironically his love interest in the first part of the film is a black woman (played by Violet Davis)

    Widows 8/10 Very enjoyable heist movie with a strong female cast and support from Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell and Robert Duvall. The wife of a criminal has to repay $1m from who it was stolen from, after her husband and crew are apparently killed by cops. She seeks help from the other widows to pull off a job.

    Thierry Henry gone . Not surprised- always looks easy on t.v. for some of these former greats.
