    You seem to have once again proven my original point.
    Akar,

    The point being that Sheldon doesn't do sarcasm or thinks he doesn't. Once again you make assumptions as if they were true. Firstly I'm not being smug and secondly who says that the programme is obscure in its references as you seem quite capable of sarcasm yourself. Akar, perhaps it might cheer you up a little if that's possible to watch it.

    How is that "The Sheldon Cooper Effect"? I'm not sure you understand what "effect" means.

    Once again you make assumptions as if they were true.
    What have I assumed?

    that the programme is obscure in its references
    I'm accusing YOU of being obscure with your references, not the show. If you say something and googling it shows ZERO results for it, I think it's fair to say that it's obscure.

    Well, it's probably not as cool as the Jesus effect.

    2 Corinthians 5

    7 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.
    Former head hunters describe how the acceptance of Christianity among the Naga people of Nagaland, India brought an end to tribal warfare and the practice of head hunting (collecting the heads of your enemies and victims as trophies).



    Nagaland is known as "the only predominantly Baptist state in the world" and "the most Baptist state in the world."[67][68][69] Baptists constitute more than 50% of the state's population, thus making it more Baptist than Mississippi in the southern United States, where 45% of the population is Baptist.

    Do you think the comments on a youtube video and a filmed interview uploaded on youtube are the same thing?

    Akar,

    It's not the setting that defines anyone, rather what comes out of their mouths. My mother used to say quite often to me, " All that glitters is not gold," and how so true that is.

    So you're saying that a random youtube comment by an anonymous person bears exactly as much weight as an interview between an accredited scientist and a journalist?

    What the does this have to do with anything?

    Akar,

    The answer is yes because i'm more likely to get more sense out of the man in the street than I am with Dawkins and as for journalists they are two a penny who need a " good story " to make headlines whether it is true to fact or not. So Dawkins may glitter for you but not for many others like me. Has the penny dropped?

    This kind of ignorant anti-intellectualism is exactly what's wrong with the world today. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

    Akar,

    Well the world has been run by your idea of intellectuals for a long long time now and yet you are about the unhappiest person I have crossed swords with and right now it is the so-called intellectuals who are rioting, burning and looting, led on by these so-called eintellectuals. What's sad is that us ordinary blokes and our families are supposed to take it all in our stride and do and say nothing.

    Are you ignoring the past 1000+ years of tyrannical theocratic rule?

    you are about the unhappiest person I have crossed swords with
    I'm not unhappy, so I have no idea where you keep getting that from. Just because I disagree with you doesn't mean I'm unhappy. I'm perfectly content.

    it is the so-called intellectuals who are rioting, burning and looting, led on by these so-called eintellectuals.
    Source?

    If you're silent and say nothing about racism, you're not an "ordinary bloke", you're a racist.

    Akar,

    Don't know what country you are of but Great Britain has never been a tyrannical theocracy. I don't believe the rest of the world's nations were either but I could be wrong on perhaps one or two examples. As for the rioting, burning and killing I think you'll find that in Great Britain and America it is the so-called intelligensia being left wing orientated who are urging and supporting them as has always been the case. As I have said more than once on these threads, I have never seen a black man or a white man but I do know quite a few of many different hues to their skin, some being brothers and sisters in Christ at the church I attend so if that's being racist I stand accused. However, that said, my answer to the race question is at the ballot box for that is where the real power of the anti-racist is best found and legally done. There is no reason for burning, looting and killing no matter what the cause is.

    Most of your post was incoherent word salad, but I'll respond to the two sentences I can make out.

    Don't know what country you are of but Great Britain has never been a tyrannical theocracy.
    Just going to ignore the whole state run church and papacy situation that the whole of Europe (including Britian) was involved in?

    . As I have said more than once on these threads, I have never seen a black man or a white man but I do know quite a few of many different hues to their skin
    Yeah, no. Anyone who is spouting this "I dont see race" nonsense is clearly a racist trying to cover for something. It's not wrong to admit you are aware of different races, it is wrong to lie and pretend like you're so far above race you can't even see color.

    I don't think Akar will appreciate that.
    What, repeating what I said back at me? I don't appreciate it the low effort response, if that's what you mean.

    Akar,

    You should learn a bit about British history. For example St Patrick was not a Roman Catholic as he established churches across Ireland. And, having studied the life of MacBeth I learned that his wife as well as Macbeth were Christian but not Roman Catholic. Even after Roman Catholicism was forced on the different British countries there were still people who followed and believed what the missionaries had brought to their lands. The wife of MacBeth's opponent for the crown was the one who forced Romanism on the Scots and only after MacBeth's death. Rome's grip on Britain was never total and certainly didn't last for thousands of years.

    My dear ole son, there is only one human race so the ones claiming there are different races are the real racists. Our race, the human race, is made up of peoples of many hues so where is this coverup you imagine?

    It's just that you fell into your own trap which your superior intellect is not supposed to let you.
