I've been pondering again.
Religious folk believe that God created the universe. Fine. Those of you who are atheists, therefore, must surely believe the possibility that there are (or have been) lots of universes?
My thinking is this - we know a universe can come into being from, essentially, nothing. Because we're in one. And within that universe there is never just one of something. There are at least 2,500 species of moth in the UK alone, for example.
So it seems unlikely that only one universe would have developed. If it can happen as easily as it seems to have - and with no outside influence as you atheists believe - then it should have happened countless times? And presumably evolution would have happened in a similar way in all of these times?
I know the multi-verse theory isn't particularly new, but would you agree that if you don't believe God created one universe then it's highly like there are many, many universes (we just can't see/get to them because we're in this one)? When compared to all other events that are able to happen due to the laws of nature/physics etc. it's surely very very unlikely a universe would only come about just one time ever?
|Those loveable Tories, again|

The Tories are trying to rig the coming election by insisting you must have photo ID to vote. We have never needed this before, we haven't had problems with fraud, and it will only disenfranchise the poorest from voting, the people who usually vote for Labour. 3.5 million have no photo ID, 11 million have no passport or driving licence.
Just another in the long list of dishonest politics in this country. Are we much worse than the rogue states we often castigate?
Even if you hate Corbyn you should be waking up to what's going on.
Extinction Rebellion have it right IMO. We need direct action to overthrow the absolute charlatans running this country.
|Another one for the science bods - where does my consciousness come from?|
at 15:13 7 Oct 2019
Presumably if you were able to measure the brainwaves of babies in the womb, you'd see that they are conscious of their surroundings, and this develops over time and through parental, peer and societal influences.
But at what point am I thinking/conscious?
And why am *I* having this consciousness? Why did *I* (whatever *I* is) come to be inside this particular human that you all know and love?
I'm a bit busy today so I'll be back later to see how you're doing.

Stop with the month-based puns already!
We've had Stoptober, Veganurary etc. Yesterday I saw an event called Shocktober... and today, whilst cycling into work, I saw a gym advertising Sweatember FFS!
When will this nonsense end?!
|What's the worst you've fecked up on an email?|
at 16:01 19 Sep 2019
Today, I sent a mass email where I CC-d everyone instead of BCC-ing them. Around 130 people who, instead of receiving a personal email, could now see everyone else. We're talking very important people in my industry, in terms of getting employment. I wanted to die.
It didn't actually turn out too bad, and the replies I got from people with their own stories of email mess-ups were brilliant, and helped me feel a little better about myself. One in particular told of a colleague who accidentally ‘replied all’ on a client email. It read “Argh. I wish she would just f*ck off!” The client, a massive global brand you’ve all heard of, then did exactly that.
My f*ck up was nothing in comparison.
Anyone else got any email embarrassment stories?
|I'm not really sure what Nolan does|

He always seems slow and ponderous to me... and never seems to create much. I know he's been injured, but when he came on on Saturday I thought it was a mistake and that he would create very little - and I was right. I'd much rather Lambert had chucked on the excitingness and differentness of Dobra, when we were struggling to open up the opposition.
Hope Dobra plays some part tonight.

1. Able-bodied people who get a lift to the first floor. Lazy barstewards. Very often fat, and this is one of the reasons why. You've also slowed down my journey to the 4th floor with your laziness.
2. Slow walkers - particularly those who are slow because they're looking down, tapping away at their phone. Can you not leave that thing alone for 5 minutes while you walk along the street? Sometimes I feel like grabbing it and throwing it on the floor.
3. Cars that are waiting to join a main road... but stick out into it a bit, forcing me to cycle round them (and potentially into traffic). Fookers. Wait until there's a gap.
4. People who send me emails saying they want to "reach out" to me. Are you drowning? If not, fook off.
5. Pedestrians. Especially the ones who can't grasp the concept of a red man. It means don't walk in the road, fookwit.
