In defence of determinism and predestination.

Good afternoon everyone. How are you all doing? I would say "I hope you're all enjoying the sunshine" but there doesn't appear to much of it about today; it is for this reason I find myself sat inside with a toasted tuna and sweetcorn sandwich, a glass of cherry coke and a bag of chilli heatwave Doritos attempting to explain to you all, the concepts of determinism and predestination. You see, the lack of sun (for some reason), inspired me to pop across the road to see my mother and, as always, a Continue reading [...]

The Empire Strikes Back

No, Darth Vader hasn’t attacked the Rebel outpost on the icy world of Hoth, nor has Han Solo been frozen in carbonite for the decorative purposes of Jabba the Hutt’s palace. Unfortunately, nothing that exciting has happened.

I've been inspired to write about something Continue reading [...]

A beginner’s guide to theology.

It has been far too long since my last update and I do feel slightly guilty, but university work has been a priority recently and has put me off writing to you for a while. Nonetheless, I'm writing now and on a topic which I promised to write about a few months ago, after I'd written my essay on it. I'm pleased to say that my Sources Continue reading [...]

Clegg in action – And by gosh did he make a good impression.

Wow! A political rambling?! It's about bloody time. I know, I've been very lapse of late and I think this is probably the first proper ramble I've had since the anniversary of Michael Jackson's death. My political fire has reignited and it's mostly thanks to the memoirs of ex-Business Secretary Lord Mandelson; reading The Third Man: Life at the Heart of New Labour has really spurred me on to get back into following British Politics. And what a day to rediscover my political passion. With Prime Continue reading [...]
