Re: ** FOREknowledge**
Hi Tangle - your link's broken on my mobile, but I presume this is Stephen Fry's wonderful response to that question ?

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re: GOD: Complex or ET?
They support grown men loving on each other.
This is always the one that attracts the visceral antagonism from you guys, isn't it ? Not the picking up sticks on the Sabbath; not the bestiality; not the adultery; not the idolatry; not any other of the many things God seems to have a problem with. Your go-to hostility is always directed towards gay people.
I've only ever heard one credible explanation for this. It's that the thought of two men having sex evokes dark..... guilty ..... feelings of ..... desire.
If you get the chance, see if you can watch the film My Beautiful Launderette. It's (in part, at least) an interesting study of someone wrestling with the hatred his desire creates.
